Will close on a new house on the 30th.
Getting last minute little fixes done on the house we are selling and packing boxes.
Last week just before we are going out of town discover the water main from the street is leaking. Discovered this when I was cutting the grass. It's not a gusher (yet) but very wet in the yard.
Finally got someone out yesterday, been without water this whole time.
Will cost $10,000 to fix. Don't know if that's a good or bad deal but I don't have time to shop around.
Waiting to see what insurance will cover.

Bad timing, whoe is me, this too shall pass.

Can they do a plastic lining? Or is that only for smaller pipes? What did the pics look like when they sent in the camera? 10k is a lot of money

You have to fix it ? Ours was leaking and was between the sidewalk and the street so the city is responsible .

Once a month I get a letter from the city offering insurance for just this type of thing. It states that from my house to the main line, my responsibility.
Last summer there was a leak on just the other side of the line. They had to tear up our driveway a bit, but fixed everything good as new on the city's dime. Got lucky I guess.
