Water mains are systems that give your home or business access to the public water supply. Although this system is underground and may seem hard to monitor, look for areas of wet or soggy ground.
The older your water main, the more likely cracks and leaks might occur. Small breaches can turn into large breaches quickly. Keep an eye on the status of the ground surrounding the water main in case it were to become soggy or wet.
One way to recognize a possible break in your water main is if your water bill goes up. If your water bill has suddenly skyrocketed over the last month, yet your water usage is about the same, it could mean that there is a breach in the system.
Look for those puddles and water formations around your home. If the water main has broken and there is not water around the line itself, it will certainly fill up around your home.
