Some common signs that you may have a water leak, include:
Frozen Pipes – Harsh New Hampshire winters can lead to frozen or burst pipes. The extreme weather causes pipes to expand and contract, slowly weakening the material.
Aging Pipes – Pipe materials can wear over time. If the home is older and water lines have not been replaced, schedule a plumbing inspection to determine the type of water lines and assess them for any potential problems, such as high water pressure.
Chronic Leaks – Frequent water leaks in fixtures, or in the main water supply line indicate a larger issue going on. If you find yourself scheduling constant water leak repairs, it is time to upgrade the home’s water pipes.
Signs of Corrosion – Corrosion on fixtures or at water supply connections is a signal that you may have excessive water pressure causing minor leaks. Hard water is also damaging to water pipes causing them to wear before the end of their lifespan.
Whether you are experiencing active leaks or are unsure of your water pipe condition, Brady Plumbing & Heating has the right solution for your home and budget with our professional water line repair and replacement in the greater New Hampshire area.
Water Line Repair
If a water line has a small leak in an accessible location, repair is often the most cost effective option. However, water lines should only be repaired by licensed and skilled professional plumbers. Some pipe materials require specialty tools such as soldering. Soldering uses open flame, and usually in enclosed spaces, so safety is crucial.
Locating and repairing water lines also may require some opening of walls or ceilings. A licensed repair specialists will set up safe containment and ensure that there are no potential health hazards involved.
If the water line is leaking in a slab foundation, sometimes direct repair is possible. Direct slab leak repair is quick and cover by many homeowners insurance. However, it is not the most permanent solution. If a slab leak has occurred, direct repair only repairs the leaking section. It is highly likely another leak will occur in another portion of the line.

When repair of a water line is not possible, or the water system is aging and frequently causing leaks, replacement is the ideal solution.
