Signs Your Main Water Line Is Leaking
Most of the time, a water leak is obvious, but sometimes, they’re difficult to pinpoint, as is often the case with a main water line leak. Signs you have a leak include lower water pressure, higher water bills than normal, pooling water in the yard or street, damp floors or drywall, and cracks in your home’s foundation. To determine if you have a water leak, follow these steps.
- Make sure you’re not using any water in or outside the house.
- Go to your water meter and see if it registers water usage.
- If you can’t determine this, take a reading now and check back in an hour and compare. If the reading is different, you have a leak.
- Call a main water line leak repair company for help.
Does Homeowners Insurance Cover Water Line Leaks?
While each insurance carrier has different areas of coverage, most standard policies don’t include main water line installation or repair unless the leak is a result of an accident or disaster. The best thing to do is to discuss your policy with your carrier before you have a problem and find out what is and isn’t covered.
