What causes a below ground water line to leak? Many things can play a role in making your main water line leak.
Tree roots can crack your water line. Age plays a big role. Buried copper usually develops pin hole leaks after many years due to reactions with the soil and scale buildup inside the pipe. PVC water lines are easily cracked by roots and shifting soil. PEX water lines can be easily cut and sometimes pinched by tree roots. Poly pipes can break down over time be crushed by tree roots. Other metal pipes (especially galvanized) will rust over time.
