When it comes to fresh water in your home, you expect high-quality results from turning on the tap. However, a few things need to be done to keep the quality where it should be. One of those is water main flushing in Snohomish. Schleg Valley Construction is here to help with all your water, plumbing, and construction needs. If your water requires spring maintenance, we’re here to help.
What Is Main Water Flushing?
This process is where water is pushed through the lines of your water main to flush out sediment. High-pressure water is pushed through by opening hydrants or valves to help clear out buildup.
What Do You Need To Know
It is recommended that you avoid washing laundry or dishes during this process. That is because discolored water can flow through your lines and cause problems with your items. You may notice a reduction in your water pressure during the process.
The process is usually around a half-hour long but can take up to an hour. Once the process is done, you can resume normal daily activities. If you notice your water is discolored, you can run the outside valves and clear out your lines.
Why Is This Necessary?
Flushing the mainline can give a variety of benefits. For starters, it flushes out the sediment that is in the lines around your home. It can reduce the chance of having that come through in the water you drink. Another benefit is reducing any discoloration or odors that may develop. It also helps to ensure you have good working hydrants and valves around the area as well.
