My main water line is old and leaking. Can it be repaired?
Repairs made on older main water lines pose a high risk that weak areas, may be affected, due to the poor integrity of the old main water line. Usually old
main water lines are too deteriorated to be repaired. Any attempt to do a repair may disturb other vulnerable areas of the line, causing new leaks and breaks.
This often makes a full trenchless water line replacement the better option.Repairs often become cost prohibitive because multiple repairs are needed over time. Repeated repairs on an old line can end up costing just as much, or more, than a full replacement, while still being stuck with your old, deteriorated line. For these reasons, many homeowners choose to go with a full trenchless water line replacement. Give us a call today at 412.287.3301 for a complete evaluation of your situation.
Natural gas is a dangerous, combustible, colorless and odorless fume that can cause serious health issues if inhaled. It’s so dangerous that gas companies put an additive in it to make it smell bad so that it is more easily detected. We work to help homeowners in the Pittsburgh area detect and repair gas line problems in a safe and efficient way.
Signs of a Gas Leak
Some of the most common signs of a gas leak include:
Smelling rotten eggs is a sure sign of a leak. This is the additive that gas companies put in the gas to make it smell bad and make it easier to detect if a leak is present.
An audible hissing sound is usually present if your gas line has a tear in it. This is the sound of the gas escaping the line.
Leaks that occur in the line below ground in your yard will cause the grass or vegetation above it to turn brown or die.
What to Do if You Have a Leak
Gas leaks can be very dangerous due to the nature of the fume and how flammable and combustible it is. If you suspect a leak in your home, take the following precautions to protect your family:
Call the gas company so they can turn off the gas to your home.
Make sure your appliances are turned off.
Open the windows to air it out.
Evacuate the home.
Do not start your car if it is parked close to the house.

When inhaled, gas causes nausea, dizziness, and fatigue in humans. If you or a loved one are experiencing any of these symptoms, we recommend you see a doctor right away to prevent serious health issues.
