Broken underground supply line
For the last several weeks ive noticed the ground is very wet right where i think the water supply line enters the house. Weve had very little rain in the last two months so its very noticable.
Today its gone from a 4 foot diameter wet spot to about double that size. The house is a 1950s ranch with a finished basement in northern illinois. What can i expect to find once i start digging? The water supply line enters the house thru the floor of the basement so the supply line has to be at least that deep, correct?
Im contemplating doing the digging myself and then having a plumber come out and do the actual repair. Any thoughts?
