Everett Water Line Repair
Uh-oh. Just got a call from Everett Water Department, and they are telling me my water reading was abnormally high, given my past usage. Guess that the new mudhole in my front yard is not the result of the storm gutters draining in a new pattern. Why is there a puddle in my basement, with no spilled glasses or overturned doggie dishes? And there is a new funky smell coming from the drywall behind the bath enclosure…
All these scenarios could be signs you have a leak in your water line. How long does a water line last? The lifespan of a water line is determined by many things, including but not limited to: pipe materials, installation quality, settling of the surrounding earth, past repairs, roots, or increased weight on top of your water line. When your water service is causing you grief in Everett, you need a correct diagnosis and practical solution from a fully licensed plumbing company.
Professional Water Line Detection Company | Why Choose Stollwerck
If your water company (City of Everett, Silver Lake Water District, Alderwood Water District, or your private water district) hasn’t reached out to you, you will want to contact them, to alert them to your water line leak situation, for future billing concerns, and concerns of surrounding properties. If you are in a commercial or multifamily building, inform your property management company immediately also, as your repairs to your water supply may affect the whole building. Detecting a leak in your main water line can be fairly straightforward, or the leak may hide well.
Stollwerck Plumbing’s professional plumbers will identify and source the water line issue or engage a professional leak detection company to identify the exact location of a difficult leak with the latest non-invasive techniques. We work with the City of Everett’s permit department, as well as the County, to ensure your repairs (if a permit is required) are made with the proper documentation and approvals
Water Line Repair Services in Everett Offered by Stollwerck
Water lines inside your home can become damaged by stray nails or screws during a home project. Sometimes the connections and line itself deteriorate due to age or water conditions. Perhaps you are having a new dishwasher, sink, or refrigerator with an ice-maker installed, and you realize the existing water line had become damaged at some point in the past.
Maybe you discovered a past owner’s “handyman” skills introduced a type of material for a water line that should never have been used to provide drinking water to any kind of fixture. Whatever the reason is, you want to make sure you address any water line deficiencies quickly and have the correct, code compliant necessary repairs performed by a licensed plumber.
Underground Water Line Repair
Your water line travels underground from the water meter located in the City/County’s right of way (typically found near a street or end of driveway location) to your home or business. This one line, once damaged, needs to be repaired as soon as possible, to ensure your safe water supply.
The manner in which repairs would need to be made will be determined based upon the extent of the damage, and condition of the water line itself, as well as your surrounding landscaping and property improvements. There is no “one size fits all” repair, as each home has unique characteristics which must be addressed. Waterline repairs can be made by spot digging with spot repair, open trenching, or directional boring and line replacement, or sleeving the existing pipe.
Water Line Installation
Are you adding in a new irrigation system to reach your new garden spaces? Is there a new outdoor kitchen or remodel which includes adding a small bath or bar? Or have you discovered your water lines are at the “end of life” and you are spending more and more every year on repairs, and finally decided it is time for a re-pipe?
Waterline installation must be performed by a licensed plumber. If you are unsure of the requirements by the City of Everett’s permit desk, or Snohomish County if you are in an unincorporated area, as to whether or not you will need a permit for your water line repairs needed, Stollwerck Plumbing & Sewer is here to help answer any questions.
