As the primary source of incoming fresh water for sinks, toilets, washers and other appliances, water mains and water lines are vital to any properly functioning home or business. If something goes wrong, it can be a big deal and a big hassle.
Also, because these lines are linked to a public utility, there are very specific requirements and specifications that need to be met when installing or fixing them. The average plumber most likely won’t have the expertise to deal with the many intricacies of the job. So, whether you need an initial install, a repair, replacement or routine maintenance, the certified experts at Dirt Cheap Sewer can tackle the project with no problem.
Signs You Have a Water
Main or Water Line Problem
Similar to outgoing sewer pipes, water lines and water mains can experience a number of issues that keep them from flowing: corrosion, leaks or clogs, misalignment, damage from nearby construction or excavation work, water temperature or pressure changes, and more. If you suspect you have a problem, don’t wait. Ignoring an issue will only make it worse. If you are experiencing any of the following, call us now:
noises near water
pipes or appliances
increase in your water bill

Our Innovative Approaches
For preventative inspections and non-invasive repair, we use the latest techniques and technologies to keep your water mains and water lines running clear. Here are a few ways Dirt Cheap can help:
Why wouldn’t I call a plumber to deal with the water line?
Plumbers have a lot of expertise about water systems inside your home. Sewer and drain experts are well versed in lines of water that exit your home, which are outside and underground. Because most water main and water line issues deal with large pipes you have to dig to, a sewer and drain expert will typically be the best option.
Isn’t the government responsible for issues with water lines?
In most cases, no. Even if the damage to the pipe is outside your property line, you might be responsible. This depends on your utility district.
My water bill is much higher than normal; do I have an issue with my water main or water line?
While this is a warning sign, there could be something else going on as well. To be safe, we recommend taking advantage of our complimentary, no obligation estimate service. You can request yours by filling out the contact form below!
Can we stay in our home or facility while repairs are happening?
Typically, homeowners do not need to leave. Dirt Cheap strives to keep the duration of time where services are unavailable to a minimum and communicates throughout the process. While that decision is ultimately up to you in a personal setting, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) states that employers must provide adequate access to functioning bathrooms with hot and cold running water. If your place of work cannot provide this due to repairs being done on the main water line, it might be against federal and/or state rules to stay.
