A water main is a pipe that is the main water supply for your Brevard County home. It is usually buried underground and is made of different materials depending on its location and purpose.
The most common type of water main is made of PVC pipe and is used to transport fresh water from a municipal water source to your Cape Canaveral home. This type of water main is usually found in newer construction.
Older water mains are made of metal, either iron or lead, and are more likely to be found in older homes and buildings. These types of water mains are more susceptible to corrosion and require more maintenance than PVC water mains.
