What is a Burst Water Main?

If pressure changes have caused your water main pipe to rupture or burst, this is what is meant by burst water main.  Water main is the central pipe within a city’s interconnected water system that supplies water to a property. When this happens, it is important to get a water main repair specialist to visit your property and carry out investigations to identify the source and level of damage. We operate locally across Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire. Give us a call on 01202393541 or fill out our enquiry form.  

How Do I Know If My Water Main Line is Damaged?

One of the most common signs that you may have a broken main line is dirty water or clouded water in your plumbing system. Another thing you may notice is water gushing out from the ground, and flooding in your driveway or yard. Other times a low water pressure for an extended period could also be an indicator of a burst water main pipe.

What Causes a Water Main Leak?

Busted water main can result from temperature changes that may cause the ground to shift, putting pressure on pipes. The age of the main or pipes, for example older pipes that are corroded may break easily. More so, fluctuations in the pressure may also result in a burst pipe.

How do I fix my busted main water line?

The best way to fix a water main line is to contact a professional company or water main repair specialist. They are well experienced to carry out all kinds of services, for example, replace old water supply pipe, water leak detection and repair of water pipe leaks.

Who is Responsible for a Burst Water Main?

Your water supply company is mostly responsible for the water mains in your property but you should check in with them. Although you are responsible for the drains, water pipes, and other plumbing fixtures in your property, some home insurance may cover the cost of repairing burst pipes or water leaks.
