- Increase in water bills A sudden spike in your water bills could indicate that you have a leak or a blockage that’s interrupting the flow of water. Even a small leak can end up having a huge impact on your water bills every month. Fortunately, water line repair professionals can put an end to the problem.

If this is the case, you may be eligible for compensation! There are some factors that determine eligibility, so please read their page, submit an application & contact them for their leak adjustment page.
- The sound of running water The sound of a drip, trickle or even gushing water when you don’t have a faucet open could mean that you have a break somewhere in your water line. Schedule an appointment for water line repair or replacement before the problem gets worse.
- Pooling water Pooling water almost always points to a leak somewhere in your water line. Whether the pooled water is in your yard or in your basement, it’s a problem that will need urgent attention or else flooding could occur. Call the drainage specialists at Budget Drainage in West Vancouver for assistance.
- Reduced water pressure When the water pressure in your taps or shower drops off for no apparent reason, you could have a water line break on your hands. Reductions in water pressure are typically caused by an accumulation of debris in the line or a break in the pipe.
Water lines can fail for several reasons like too much pressure in the line or simply everyday wear and tear over time. A broken water line is more than just a minor inconvenience, it’s a major problem. Avoid disaster with water line repair from Budget Drainage.
