Water main services keep your mains healthy and ensure water is flowing in a clean and unhindered manner. A poorly preserved water main may lose pressure, experience a restricted flow rate, and increase utility costs. The most common problem we come across is clogged or restricted pipelines. Issues can build up over long-time use. Sediments of calcium and magnesium from the water make themselves at home and cause flow restriction. Tuberculation is also something we see in these cases where hard rust-like deposits accumulate and cause restricted flow, discoloration, and long-term damage to the integrity of the pipes. When caught in time, these issues are easily handled with trenchless techniques, but if left alone will cost you a lot more than inflated utility bills and a couple of repairs.
Discolored or dirty water is the other most common issue with water mains. The cause of water’s altered appearance can come from many sources, such as tuberculation, as discussed above. Still, it is most commonly associated with sediment and debris build-up over time. A qualified team, like Shuler Enterprises, can swiftly diagnose the root cause of your water discoloration issue and fix it without ever having to cease business operations.
