Water Main Breaks or Shutdown
Reducing The Problems Of Water Main Breakdowns
Water access can and does fail. It’s necessary to have supplies on hand to prepare for power outages, structural problems, and issues that affect your access to clean water. Having emergency water on hand will help you feel ready should the worst occur, making sure you can continue production and stay ready for other emergencies. With GFS’s emergency water supply services, our team can help you come up with a solution.
What Is A Water Main?
A water main is an underground pipe or conduit that is responsible for delivering water to your building. If something happens like a water main break, you might notice water making its way to the surface.
What Causes Water Main Breaks?
The most common problem affecting water mains is leaks through worn piping. They can run up your utility bills, cause low water pressure, damage other pipes near your water main, and even cause flooding on your property. Damage to your water main can shut down the entire plumbing system, too.
What Happens When Your Water Main Breaks?
Fixing the water main system means shutting down the water main, digging up the water main, taking out the pipe, and replacing it with a new one. Many problems might not be apparent right away – the GFS team can visit your property and determine the issue with our state-of-the-art equipment and expert eye.
When you have a water main break in Southwestern Ontario, you can’t sit around and wait for it to magically go away. You need a fast solution, and that’s what GFS provides.
