Water line repair is the process in which we diagnose and fix problems related to your water line. Problems include breaks, leaks, and rusty pipes that may be causing issues with the water supply in your home.
Problems with your water line may present themselves in different ways. If you have noticed a decrease in your weather pressure or murky colored water coming from the tap, you most likely have an issue with the water line.
Water line problems need to get addressed as soon as possible. Seeking professional help immediately will prevent the need for expensive replacements.

- Water Line Installation
Harris can replace and install brand-new water lines for your home. There are cases when it is advised the water line gets replaced rather than repaired. Problems with old water lines tend to get replaced instead of repaired because the materials are out-of-date. Any water line that has gotten repaired several times needs to get replaced.
It is sometimes more cost-effective to replace than to repair. Once a water line has had several repairs, a full replacement will save money in the long run. The new equipment is stronger and will not need repairs for years.
Frequently asked questions
The frequency in which you need to repair water lines depends on a few factors. Water lines can be repaired in some cases if they break, crack, leak, and corrode. The cause of these problems could be any number of things.
The age of the pipes is a major factor in diagnosing the health of your water pipes. Decades-old water pipes are likely to have integrity issues. Integrity issues are based on the years of use and the materials. Any water pipe over 50 years old needs to get replaced if there is any break.
Wear and tear is a natural part of the water line life cycle. Years of use and frequent use will eventually create structural damage to the pipes. New water lines will be structurally sound for many years before wear and tear take over. Small cracks and breaks are repairable. These issues need to get addressed immediately to avoid full replacement.
Burst pipes happen on occasion. Homeowners often cause their pipes to burst. Some people take better care of their pipes than others. Pipes can burst because of clogs or freezing temperatures.
Those that do not take care of their pipes during New Jersey winters might experience more frequent bursts. Major burst pipes necessitate the need for water line replacement.
The cost of water line installation depends on your situation. Repairs are cheaper than replacements. If you have conducted many repairs on the water line, it is time for a full replacement to break the cycle.
Every house will have a different situation that will impact the cost of water line installation. If any obstructions need to be worked around. Trees or concrete get in the way of the pipe, and it will cost more to circumvent these obstructions.
The depth in which the water line gets placed will factor into the cost. Deeper digging is more work and requires permits depending on the size of the project. The bigger the project, the higher the costs.
The material of the pipe will impact the cost. Some types of material cannot go in certain soils. Copper does not work in some types of soil. The material necessary will depend on your home’s situation.
