While you can feel confident that your homeowner’s insurance should cover most problems you experience at your house, some things are typically not covered in a standard policy. One of those is issues with your water main. Some insurers offer inclusive coverage that includes the water main, but you may have to look for them. You can also sometimes add a rider to your homeowner’s insurance that will cover water main problems. Most of the time things happen when we’re the most unprepared. That’s when you need trenchless water main line repair, replacement, and installation service in Vancouver.
There are a few obvious signals that there is a water main line problem of some kind. As pipes age, they are more susceptible to intrusion from tree and shrub roots, the buildup of minerals in the pipes, land shifts, and varying temperature changes. If you hear water in the walls of the house, your water bills are bigger than normal, your water is discolored, have a water meter that moves constantly, or have unexplained puddles in the yard or the basement, there is likely some damage to your water main line.
A plumber will assess the situation to find out what’s wrong. Repair or replacement options include digging a trench to make a repair or using state-of-the-art trenchless technology. The trench method is costly and highly invasive. Less expensive and more environmentally friendly is the trenchless process, which uses only two to three holes in your landscape.
