Pipe Breaks, Water Line & Water Main Repair North Houston TX
A water main is the principal pipe in a system of pipes for conveying water, usually referencing underground installation. When a water main breaks, it’s critical to have it repaired quickly, since this is the main source of water for a business or household, and can feed into multiple residences.
Water main repair is not an easy job, and requires the knowledge and expertise of a licensed North Houston plumber familiar with plumbing codes in the area. This is because, in the construction, rehabilitation and repair of a water main, there is the potential risk of contamination to the water supply and the entire distribution system. As part of our plumbing services, Rooter-Man Plumbers know how to safely and effectively repair and replace water mains, so your water supply can be reinstated with minimal interruption and without the concern of contamination.

Water mains should be designed to maintain adequate separation from potential sources of contamination. This includes separation from sewage pipes, storm water, and reclaimed waste water. Pipe material, joint type, soil conditions, and repair or installation space are all factors in the repair and replacement of water mains. At Rooter-Man Plumbers, we know the local and state regulations. We follow proper installation and repair practices, so that standards for cleanliness and safety are followed, and no harm comes to you, your family, or your employees based on contamination.
Pipe Repair and Installation
Repiping and pipe replacement usually involves complete replacement of the water distribution pipe systems in your home. All the pipes, pipe fittings, stop valves, and supply lines are replaced with more modern pipe options. This process usually takes around three days and water is available during the entire process, with the exception of a few hours on the last day. This ensures as little interruption to your day as possible. Here at Rooter-Man Plumbers, we do what we can to ensure that you and your family live a safe, comfortable life.
There are many reasons why you may decide that re-piping is the right option for you, and a big part of this decision depends on the type of pipes you currently have. Many homes have galvanized or polybutylene plumbing, which is susceptible to clogs, leaks and breaks. Many of these issues are due simply to corrosion.
Warning signs include:
- Low water pressure
- Rusty water
- Leaky pipes
- Water leaking through your foundation
- Water running, even when faucets are closed
- Unusually high water bills
Benefits of Repiping
- Clean, clear water without rust or odor
- Increased water pressure, allowing you to use multiple faucets at one time
- Stable water temperature, even when using multiple faucets at one time
- Peace of mind in a sound investment for your home
- Increased property value and distinctive home selling point
Plumbers always recommend copper piping for clean, drinkable water. If you are thinking about updating your pipes and drains, give us a call for an estimate on copper piping. Copper piping is the most durable pipe, and is generally guaranteed from the manufacturer for 50 years. Combined with our guarantees, when you install copper piping from Rooter-Man Plumbers, you will never have to worry about your pipes again. Copper piping won’t corrode, and will add value to your property if you decide to sell it. Call us for an estimate on copper piping today!
PEX (cross‐linked polyethylene) is a type of plumbing material that offers many advantages over traditional copper hot and cold water distribution systems. Because of the many benefits offered by PEX, it has become a preferable plumbing system to copper for home builders nationwide; PEX is rapidly gaining acceptance in commercial construction applications as well. PEX plumbing systems originated in Europe over 30 years ago, and have been used in North America for over 10 years, during which time they have demonstrated excellent performance and durability. Homeowners, builders, and plumbing contractors can all benefit from the use of PEX plumbing systems.
It is a quiet plumbing system that virtually eliminates water hammer noise caused by rapidly opening and closing valves. PEX piping also is freeze resistant, is not susceptible to corrosion or the leaks that result from corrosion, and is far more cost effective than copper piping systems. Our Tomball plumbers are PEX professionals and would love to assist you with any of your PEX piping needs.
