Everything You Need to Know About Water Main Solutions

Schuler Plumbing, based in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, is the area’s leading provider of water main services for commercial buildings. Water mains are the large pipes that run through the city, bringing water from treatment facilities to individual businesses and residences. They help distribute clean and safe drinking water to the entire community; unfortunately, the water is only as clean as the condition of the pipes. Like other plumbing appliances, water mains are subject to wear and tear, so you must watch for faulty joints, inadequate pressure, and corrosion.

Regular water main maintenance is required to protect the pipes from sediments and ensure water quality. That is why Schuler Plumbing specializes in providing essential water main services such as maintenance that keeps systems functioning optimally, repairs that efficiently restore breaks and avoid damage, flawless installations, and replacements for old systems that have given out. We are committed to providing you with excellent service. We use only the best techniques, equipment, and people to achieve that. With our help, you can guarantee that all services will go off without a hitch and be long-lasting.

The materials that makeup water mains depend on the type of soil and pressure level they must withstand. For example, older pipes made out of cast iron are brittle and crack relatively easily. So we are now replacing them with high-density polyethylene (HDPE) or polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipes. These materials are excellent for water mains because they are flexible and resistant to abrasion and corrosion.

Every material has its own specific advantages and situations where it shines. Before committing to a material, a plumber should consider your project’s unique infrastructure and soil composition needs. The size and diameter of the pipe as well as how much pressure and gravity it is defined by, will also play a role. A Schuler technician will consider all this and more when engineering any new water mains system, which is essential because having a plumbing system built out of the correct material is just as important as having one built correctly. With our team, you never have to worry about that. We take great pride in our work and ensure that every job is performed up to code and exceeds expectations.

Common Causes of Damage to Commercial Water Mains

The cause of damages that need water main services are endless, but the most common, and the ones we think you should be most vigilant about, include:

  • Unintentional rupture during excavation
  • Old piping material
  • Changes in pressure due to thermal expansion
  • Ground settlement
  • Corrosive soils
  • Encroaching tree roots

Frequent Issues We See that Need Water Main Service

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. When you go with a team like ours, you are choosing specialists who know their stuff, enjoy what they do, and care about understanding your business’s needs and how to prevent them in the future.

We want to make this simple, so here are some other signs that you may have an issue with your water mains:

  • Reduced Water Pressure
  • Foul Smell from the Pipes and Drains
  • Water Pooling Around Drains or Slow Draining
  • Water Drips Out of the Faucet When it is Off
  • Pests Entering Through Drain Traps
  • Noticeable Water Damage on Walls and Cracks in the Walls or Foundation of the Structure

Any of the signs above are a good reason to call Schuler Plumbing. While they may not all automatically indicate a problem with your water mains, they do indicate a plumbing problem that needs immediate attention.
