Mainline Services in Tacoma, WA

Insta-Pipe - Mainline

The mainline is the most important part of your home’s plumbing system. All water that flows into your home must first move through the mainline (hence the name) before reaching the rest of the plumbing system. If a problem develops in the mainline, or if it’s in generally poor condition, the rest of your plumbing system will suffer. Insta-Pipe provides a full range of mainline services throughout Tacoma, WA and the surrounding areas. If you need help with your mainline, whether it needs installation, repair, maintenance, or replacement, we can help you out. Contact us today to schedule an appointment with one of our technicians.

We will definitely recommend your company if asked for referrals. - Kimberly Webster MVP Realty

Mainline Installation and Replacement Services

Mainline installation is pretty much always done during the construction of new housing, since no one wants to be in a home without a plumbing system. Mainline replacement, on the other hand, is something that every home is going to need sooner or later. Though they can last for many decades, they won’t last forever.

Common signs that your mainline might need to be replaced include:

  • Loss of Water Pressure: This typically indicates a major leak or rupture. It could also indicate a lot of smaller leaks. Either way, it’s not a good sign.
  • Pools Forming: If you have unexplained pools forming in your yard, it could mean that water is filtering up from the mainline in large amounts.
  • Higher Bills: If your monthly bills are higher, but you aren’t actually using any more water, it could be that there is water leaving the system at some other point. You should have your water line checked, just to make sure.

We Provide Mainline Repair and Maintenance Services

Part of keeping your mainline in the best possible shape for as long as possible is scheduling maintenance services. During a mainline maintenance visit, your technician will use a camera to inspect the inside of the pipe for leaks and other issues. Based on the results of that inspection, further action may or may not be warranted. For our mainline inspections, we use Solo Robots. These are small, motorized units with remote cameras attached to them. The operator moves the robot through the pipe, taking a close look at the walls for any signs of an issue that needs to be corrected. This is the best way to catch any problems with the mainline early.

Of course, there is always a chance that a problem will occur between maintenance appointments. If you happen to suspect that your mainline is in trouble, either because of the symptoms we’ve listed above or for some other reason, make sure that you call for repairs as quickly as possible. The faster we can repair your mainline, the more damage we can prevent.

Ideally, you should be scheduling preventive maintenance appointments for your mainline at least once every year or two. Longer than that, and the likelihood of tree roots breaking in and leaks occurring becomes much higher. As for repairs, don’t wait until your next appointment to address any repair issue. Time is of the essence in those cases. If your mainline does need to be replaced, or you need a brand new one installed for whatever reason, Insta-Pipe is here to help you out. We offer comprehensive mainline services. Contact us today to schedule an appointment with one of our expert technicians.
