What is a Water Main?

Your water main is the pipe that connects your home to the water of your municipality. Usually, this water system source is a pumping station or a reservoir. While the failure of a city water main would certainly be a city responsibility, it is generally understood that homeowners are responsible for the fixing of a water main that is underneath their property.

What Does a Water Main Repair Entail?

Many water main repairs can be fixed by using a modern drilling technology. This trenchless directional drilling technology makes use of a directional drill image that is both highly effective and minimally invasive. At Lux Plumbing, our trench method ensure that you don't have to compromise the enjoyment of your home in order to have your water main fixed.

How Do I Know If I Need a New Water Main?

Many of the issues that may point towards the need for a new water main can be easily written off as common plumbing issues, so it's very important that you keep track of what exactly you are experiencing and when. For example, one of the most common signs of a damaged water main is frequent clogs. If you have a water main that is breaking down you may also hear strange unexplained noises and see unexplainable water accumulation. In some cases, you may even see an unexplained increase in your water bills.

Signs of a water main break down can be sneaky, so it's important that you rely on a professional to perform and inspect your water main regularly. Not only can a broken water main be quite inconvenient, but it can also be quite an expensive repair.

  • I called Andrew for a clogged kitchen sink, previously it was unclogged by a family handyman, but the problem still existed. Andrew from LUX was able to respond, schedule, and repair my sink in a quick and straightforward way. Pricing was honest and fair. He took the time to explain thoroughly of what the issue was. And he gave me precautionary measures to maintain the sinks so this clog would not happen again!

  • Andrew is very knowledgeable! His prices are fair and his service is by far the best experience I've had vs all the service technicians from electricians to roofer even other major plumbing firms.
