After a couple of months of an extremely high water bill, it appears we have a leak in our galvanized plumbing. The house was built in 1942 and has plumbing partially buried in a crawl space.
According to the plumber either the leak is from the main water line or under the house. The plumber is unsure of the location of the leak. I haven't noticed any puddling of water in the yard so I'm guess that the leak is likely under our house.
The plumber is supposed to come out again next week to provide an estimate for repair. He mentioned that we might have to have all the plumbing completely replaced since the galvanized plumbing is so old. Isn't that going to be difficult (and expensive!)since it's in a crawl space and will need to be excavated?
I was hoping for some opinions? I guess I'll call another plumber for a second opinion - but I thought I'd post here for further insight. Thanks for any advice!
