Main Water Line Repairs in Atlanta, GA

Your home's main water line is the large pipe bringing water from the municipal supply into your property. However, various factors can damage these critical pipes over time, leading to leaks or breaks. At American Rooter Services, our licensed plumbers have the expertise to provide prompt and effective main water line repairs. We aim to resolve problems quickly while keeping repair costs reasonable for our clients.

Our approach is to address the underlying cause of your main water line problems using durable materials and modern techniques. With our emergency services, we can quickly respond to ruptured lines and get water flowing again with minimal interruption. No matter what repairs your system needs, we have the expertise and equipment to restore it to optimal condition.

Common Main Water Line Problems We Handle

Our technicians have the experience to address all types of main water line issues. 

Some of the most common problems we handle include:

  • Leaks and bursts due to various factors, including age and corrosion
  • Tree root invasion into pipes causing damage and obstruction
  • Corrosion and wear over time reduce pipe performance
  • Sediment buildup or foreign objects leading to blocked water lines
  • Pipes freezing in cold climates and potentially bursting
  • Soil shifts or settling causing pipe misalignment
  • Excessive water pressure puts undue stress on pipes
  • Deterioration of old and outdated pipe materials necessitating replacement

If you suspect a break, immediately turn off the main water supply to halt the flow. It is typically located in the basement, by the water heater, or at the curb in a utility box. Once the water is off, capture images of visible damage for insurance claims and repair assessments. 

Our Repair Techniques

We start with a thorough assessment of the water line's condition, utilizing the latest diagnostic tools to identify the source and extent of the issue. Our skilled technicians then select the most appropriate repair method that offers lasting results while considering the specifics of the issue, pipe type, and location.

Our repair techniques include:

  • Pipe bursting is an effective technique for severely damaged pipes, where we pull a new pipe through the old one, simultaneously breaking the old pipe and replacing it with a new one.
  • Hydrostatic testing involves filling the water line with colored water under pressure to pinpoint the exact location of a leak.
  • Epoxy pipe lining or cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining involves inserting and curing an epoxy liner inside the existing pipe to seal leaks and prevent future corrosion.
  • Pipe relining places a new pipe lining inside the old pipe to reinforce and repair it without removing the old pipe.
  • Slip lining inserts a "carrier pipe" into the larger host pipe and grouted into place, effectively creating a new, functional pipeline within the old one.

How Much Does It Cost to Repair a Main Water Line?

The cost of repairing your main water line will depend on several factors, including the type of pipe, the length of the damaged section, and the complexity of the required repair. The average main line repair costs $2,000 to $4,000, but prices range from $500 for a simple pipe patch to $10,000 or more for a complete replacement.

Emergency repairs typically cost more due to the need for prompt response and service. Traditional methods may have lower initial costs but can lead to additional expenses in landscape restoration and longer service interruptions. The accessibility of the damaged pipe and the local regulations can also impact the cost, as permits may be required for certain types of work.

At American Rooter Services, we provide free estimates so you know the expected cost before work begins. Our Atlanta water line repair team strives to keep our costs reasonable without sacrificing quality materials and workmanship.
