Water service manifold


Your home’s water main is the pipe that supplies the incoming water to your home. This supply of water is essential for washing your hands, doing laundry, cooking, and bathing. However, when your water main breaks, it can cause a lot of issues, including severe damage to your property. Whether you live in an older home or are working on new construction, your water main may be at risk. The main shut-off valve and pressure regulator are connected right before the water enters your house; this is where common issues of failures can occur. If your water pressure regulator is not working, the water pressure could go up excessively and over-pressurized your pipes, fixtures, and rubber supply lines. If your water main shut-off is not working, you will not be able to shut off the water going into your house! So, if you have sprung a leak in the house, it could lead to catastrophic flooding and damage to your home. Corrosion, invasive tree roots, and earthquakes can damage your home’s water main. Tree roots can pry on the water main piping, causing it to break. When that happens, it’s essential to have a knowledgeable and experienced team by your side for water main line repair and replacement.

common signs of water main damage

If your water main is damaged, acting fast will not only prevent further damage to your home and property, but it can also save you money on your water bill. However, not every homeowner knows the signs that their water main may be broken. If you’re uncertain, our knowledgeable and experienced team can conduct a water main inspection service. We’re available 24/7 for all your emergency service needs. Look out for these common signs your water main may be damaged:

If your water main is damaged, it can cause your home's water to be cloudy or foul-smelling. You may also notice debris floating to the top or sinking to the bottom of still water. This happens when contaminates enter the waterline through the damaged area and can pose a health risk to your family.

A broken water main will cause your pipes to lose pressure. Low water pressure is more than just an inconvenience when trying to clean or take a shower. It can cause your water bill to skyrocket.

Your home's water main runs underground from the meter to your home. If you notice still water on the property around your home or have an unusually healthy and lush landscape area, there is a chance it could be the result of a broken pipe. If the break happens inside your home, you may find water in your crawl space or experience flooding in your home.

We went shopping for our daughter’s birthday party and came home 2 hours later with the first floor flooded. I called several plumbers before I called SWAGS Plumbing and Rooter. They responded and came about one hour later. The break was inside the walls and required leak detection. Before leaving for the weekend the plumber was able to determine that it was the hot water pipe that was leaking. This provided us with at least cold water during the party and for the weekend. When they came after the weekend they were able to determine where the leak came from on their first attempt. They opened the wall and repaired the pipe expeditiously. They were very professional and meticulous when it came to their work and our home. We were updated on a regular basis on their progress. They showed us where the leak was and what actually caused it. We were so fortunate that, on our third call to a plumber, we reached SWAGS Plumbing and Rooter and that they were available within an hour to come to the rescue. I would strongly recommend SWAGS Plumbing and Rooter for any type of plumbing and rooter service.

Daniel was punctual and systematically helped diagnose the source of the leak from our upstairs bathroom. Although the root cause was not specifically found to be a plumbing issue, he was able to refer us to appropriate contacts to assist. I highly recommend this business – honesty, integrity, and value are not in short supply with them! Thanks!

We had an undetectable water leak at our home. We had one plumbing company come out, and they were not able to find the issue. I called SWAGS and they came over the same day, discovered were the leak was, and had it repaired the next day! Their response time was amazing, their service technicians were very knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend SWAGS Plumbing! Thank you for the wonderful experience. Any other plumbing needs we will definitely call them.

SWAGS is my trusted company to call when I have plumbing needs because they are the highest quality, most professional and most responsive service I have found. Dan has helped me in emergencies and also advised me on plumbing upgrades for my home. The people he hires that work for him have all been courteous, reliable and extremely professional in addition to knowing their trade well. Highly recommend Dan and his team!

Techs arrived on time to fix a leaking shower. Completed the job carefully and in a timely manner. Techs were respectful, communicated clearly, and kept their work area clean (they wore masks and plastic shoe covers). Compared to other plumbing services I’ve hired in the past, their rates were fair and reasonable. Will consider using SWAGS again.
