What is Water Main Lining?
One way that water main pipes are repaired is with a process called water main lining or Cured-In-Place Pipe. This technology involves lining the existing water main with a new pipe on the inside. The new line is inserted through smaller access pits that are dug at either end of the line. It is a less invasive and less costly water main repair method.
Common Causes of Water Main Breaks
There are several causes of water main breaks that you should be aware of, because it doesn’t always have to do with frigid temperatures. Cold temps do cause water mains to break, but in Virginia you’re more likely to see broken water mains for other reasons. These include external corrosion of water main pipes, ground shifts from hot, dry weather, older pipes made from iron that have cracked and worn down, soil erosion and human factors.
These may include contractors and utility workers accidentally damaging water mains with heavy equipment. Make a point of calling your plumbing service provider as soon as you notice any possible signs of a water main break, because the damage can be disastrous if it isn’t caught early.
