What Causes a Broken Pipe or Leaking Water Main?

There are a lot of things that can cause damage to your water main. Here are just a few of the most common causes:

Fluctuating Plumbing Pressure

Changing pressure in the pipes (sometimes caused by new appliance installation or higher water usage) can expose existing weak points in your water main.

Age of Pipes

If your water main is older than 50 years, it is more likely to spring a leak.

Soil Contents

The Navien Warranty is among the best in the industry. It is 2 year labour, 5 year parts and up to 15 year heat exchanger. Which means if anything is wrong within 2 years Navien will pay for the part and the labour to replace the part, and from 2-5 years the parts will be covered, and up to 15 years the heat exchanger will be covered.

Shifts in the Soil

Shifts in the soil brought on by growing tree roots or temperature fluctuations can also cause burst or compromised pipes.


Signs of a Broken Water Line or Leaking Water Main

Fortunately, you don’t have to be an experienced plumber to see the signs of water main failure.

Some of the tell-tale signs of a broken water main include:

  • Low Water Pressure – If you are noticing poor water pressure from your faucets, the problem could be a broken water main.
  • Spiking Water Bills – Water main leaks are the most common type of water main problem. This will often result in an otherwise inexplicable increase in your water bill and usage.
  • Streams of Water – You may notice water on your driveway or in the low points of your property. This could be a sign that your water main is leaking.

Why It’s a Good Idea to Replace Your Water Lines

Replacing your water mains or the pipes that connect the main line to the rooms of your house may be necessary when you are renovating. New appliances and fixtures can cause extra stress on already weak pipes. If you are renovating your bathroom or kitchen, or installing new fixtures or appliances, you may want to consider replacing your water main. At the very least, you should have it inspected. The older the house is, the more important it is to have the water main inspected. It is also important to consider water line replacement or repair if your home is 50 years old or older and contains Poly B piping, typically grey in color which has been discontinued due to the high likelihood of causing a leak or flood.
