Common Causes of Water Main Problems


Many water mains are decades old, and over time, they can deteriorate due to age and wear and tear.


Pipes made of certain materials, such as iron or steel, can be susceptible to corrosion over time. Corrosion can lead to leaks, weakened pipes, and eventual failure.

Tree roots:

The roots of trees and other plants can grow into and around water mains, causing damage and blockages.

Ground shifting:

Changes in the soil, such as settling or shifting due to construction or natural geological factors, can put pressure on water mains and cause them to crack or break.

Extreme temperatures:

Rapid changes in temperature can cause pipes to expand and contract, putting stress on the pipes and potentially causing them to fail.


Blockages in the water main, such as from debris or mineral buildup, can cause pressure to build up in the pipes and eventually lead to failure.
