Texas may not see as much frigid winter weather as elsewhere in the U.S., but that doesn’t mean lower temperatures don’t have their own negative side effects. Frozen pipes and broken water lines can happen anywhere and, believe it or not, in every kind of weather.
Broken water lines can be a major issue for your business and your property if they’re not detected or repaired quickly. However, broken water lines can be difficult to detect. To help you out, here are some of the most common signs your business could have a broken water line to worry about.
- There’s water in your yard. For both homeowners and business owners, one of the most common signs of a water line break is when your yard has some type of flooding. The leak in the water line can cause unexplained wet areas and even sinkholes that can put your customers and employees at risk.
- You have puddles appearing inside your property. If you don’t have a leak in the pipes under your sinks, but puddles are appearing around your business, it could be a sign that you have a leak somewhere outside your house or your water line has broken.
- You have low water pressure. Low water pressure can be just as bad a sign that something’s wrong with your water line as having no water at all. Low water pressure means there’s some type of disturbance in the line like a clog or rupture.
If you notice these signs, it may be a good idea to contact a plumbing service and a horizontal directional drilling contract to inspect and replace your water lines.
