Water Line Servicing: Why You Need an Expert

3 min Read

There are certain home repairs and maintenance tasks that you can handle on your own—you might even be a complete pro at it! But there are some things that should be left up to the licensed pros and experts. One of those things is water line servicing, repair or replacement. Let the team at Mattioni explain in a little more detail about what water line servicing is and why you need an expert for it.

First of All, What Exactly is The Water Line in Your Home?

The water line is essentially the main water pipe through which water enters your home. All of the water flowing through your faucets, washing machine, dishwasher, first comes from the water service line located most likely under your front yard.

Why You Need an Expert to Service Your Water Line

1. DIY Can Cause Damage

As we mentioned above, it’s just not a good idea to service your water line on your own. It requires a great deal of digging and shoveling and you might end up doing more harm than good. Not only is digging around in your front yard a bad idea since it can damage other utility lines running under your home, but it will be an expensive do-over. It’s best to leave it to the experts!

2. DIY Can Be Expensive

Yes, we understand that calling a professional to repair or service your water line is already costly. But at least you will get expert repairs from a technician with all the right tools and knowledge. With a professional, you will get your money’s worth. However, if you do it on your own, you might end up causing more damage and might need to spend even more money to fix it. It’s just not worth taking the risk.

3. You Don’t Have the Tools or Knowledge

Technicians come prepared with equipment and training necessary to do any digging, inspections and repairing. They also have special devices that help them detect leaks hidden under slabs or deep under your lawn. They have specialized skills that make them perfect for the job. While you may have done your research on the subject and read a few blogs or two, leak detectors have the professional training necessary. Leave it to them and they’ll get the job done well!

4. Experts Will Get It Right the First Time

DIY projects often require a bit of trial and error. You can’t risk that with water line repair and servicing as it can cause leaks in the future or lead to improper repair. If you hire an expert, you can be sure that they will get the job efficiently and effectively!
