Seattle’s Water Pipe Service Leaders

At Bob Oates, we are expert water pipe service professionals and our priority is our clientele. As a family-owned and operated business, we value honesty and hard work. We are third generation sewer, rooter and water main repair experts — the whole family works together to get damaged pipes quickly repaired, proudly providing service to the neighbors and the cities where we all live and work.

Although routine maintenance of the pipelines at your property can help you avoid leaks, sometimes a water main breaks or the unexpected occurs. Whether underground or inside your home, old or damaged water mains can cause leaks that go undetected and result in property damage due to flooding, erosion, mold, mildew, and rot, and wasted money on your utility bill.

If you suspect a leak or have a confirmed leak, it’s important to call a skilled and licensed plumber in Seattle as soon as possible to avoid property damage — not to mention a high water bill from the city. Bob Oates can be on-site quickly to determine the issue, review repair options and provide you with a free estimate.

Should I Hire Water Main Repair Near Me?

We feel that a local service company is one you can trust to provide fast, affordable emergency service when needed. With three locations to serve you, we believe we are that company.

Most of our plumbers and technicians take their trucks home and are on the ready to be dispatched from their house if necessary. This allows us to provide even wider coverage in our service areas.

Water main line repair protects your property and your bank account from costly damage. The only problem is that so many of the signs and symptoms of much-needed water main leak repair are similar to other common faults in the system. Suffice it to say that a problem with the water main is a sign of an emergency requiring immediate attention, but a lot of people don’t know what to look out for.

Failure to invest in water main repair can lead to problems with construction work, issues with your water service, low-quality drinking water, and higher-than-average utility bills. Acting quickly and calling a water main break repair service can save you thousands in the long run.

Some leaks are easily detectable due to the water damage they cause, but others can fly under the radar. Searching for water main repair services is critical if you notice pooling water, damp drywall, or unexplained low water pressure. Be on the lookout for unusually high water bills as this can be a sign of an underground water main leak

Other Signs of Faulty Water Main Lines

There are several ways to confirm a leaking water main, including:

  • Unexplained changes in the water bill or water meter readings
  • Cracks in the foundation
  • Mold or mildew growth
  • Water spots on the ceiling or walls
  • The constant sound of running water
  • Pooling water on your concrete or soggy grass

All of these indicators of leaks from cracked or broken pipes need to be fixed as soon as possible to avoid costly repairs and prevent unnecessary charges. At Bob Oates, our plumbing company has years of experience working with fixing water mains and offering fast solutions.

If you notice any suspicious signs or sounds, the cost to repair a water main pales in comparison to the damage it could cause if left unattended.

Advantages of Choosing Bob Oates for Water Main Break Repair Services

Non-Invasive Water Pipe Inspections

Bob Oates is proud to offer non-invasive leak detection services and water main repair in Seattle, WA, and surrounding areas. As a leader in innovative plumbing repairs, we are able to locate and diagnose the source of leaks with special equipment whether by electronically locating the leak (adding a small charge to the line) or a highly sensitive listening device similar to a stethoscope that can “hear” a leak underground or in walls.

Whether it’s a pinhole leak, break or a rusted fitting, we can detect it without destroying your property and diagnose pipe flow and function. After the inspection, the technician will discuss your repair options with you. One of the most cost efficient and effective methods of repair is trenchless pipe replacement.

From a homeowner’s water meter to the shut off valve we can, using a hydraulic mole, ”bore” a new water line right through the soil, thereby preventing digging up your entire lawn or damaging the sidewalk or driveway unnecessarily. This is the most cost effective and least intrusive method available in the industry.
