Salisbury Plumbing: Water Main

If your home’s water main breaks, you may end up with murky drinking and shower water. Our licensed technicians can repair it.

Water Main Repair in Utah County

Water mains are the pipes that supply water throughout Utah, and they generally run underground. Decades ago, these pipes were made of galvanized steel or cast iron; however, today’s water mains are made from concrete cement. Unfortunately, water main breaks can occur unexpectedly, damaging city roads, homes, and businesses.

After a water main break, you may notice cloudy or brown water coming from your tap. We advise you to avoid using your shower or drinking water until it runs clear. These breaks are most likely to occur when snow penetrates the ground. Salisbury Plumbing can look at how to clean up your area’s water main break and identify the causes so that it doesn’t happen again.

Salisbury Plumbing Specializes in Water Main Repair

First, our team controls the water by closing valves. Next, we make sure we can dig without damaging other services or endangering others. We detect the main leak using an electronic leak detector and then dig down the pipe. Depending on the amount of damage, we might need to apply a repair clamp or replace the pipe’s length.

Breaks that affect a large number of people, such as those in apartment blocks, hospitals, or personal care homes, are at the top of our repair list. We’ve reduced water main breaks by replacing and repairing corroded mains with new Ductile Iron Concrete Lined (DICL) pipes.

Many expensive repairs can be avoided with a bit of preventative maintenance. Slow or stubborn drains have build-up inside them which are very acidic. This kind of build-up (called sludge) will rot your pipe from the inside out over time, leaving you with a broken drain. At this point, the only thing to do is to replace it. This usually means cutting up your floor and digging down to the rotten pipe. These repairs are labor intensive and can be time-consuming, leaving you without use of your facilities while the repair takes place. By walking into your facility and asking you a few questions, we can tailor a custom preventative maintenance program specifically for your needs and budget.
