A lot of water pipes that were installed in Las Vegas have been around for more than 50 years. Imagine these pipes being subject to constant water pressure, corrosion and root intrusion, and you’d probably have a good idea of its state.
Leaks, cracks and holes in the water lines cause a lot of problems for the homeowner. The worst case scenario is the possibility that the water main could blow out if left unchecked. Water service is totally disrupted, meaning you can’t use any water conveniences such as flushing or washing any time soon. It can even cause damaging floods to the outside and inside of your property, which leads to the unwanted growth of mold and mildew in the walls, flooring or the roof.
Such an emergency requires a customer report, which leads to investigation. It’s certainly for the best that one should report immediately if they notice anything unusual happening in their water mains. You might think that it’s normal to have a low-pressure water supply every now and then, but this sign could be something deeper and more serious. A Water Main Investigation Las Vegas can determine whether there are blockages or foreign materials stuck into the pipes.
