Question by nisajoyj: How much should it cost to replace the main water line from the meter to the house?
I came home from vacation to find water pouring in from the basement walls. After turning the water off at the street it was an hour before it stopped coming in! I called the plumber. He said that the whole line must be replaced with copper ( the house is 85 years old). He is saying a minimum of $ 2200. Does this sound reasonable? He says it could be more if the pipes in the house need to be replaced also.

You figure he has to dig up the lines, rip out old line, replace and then cover the new lines. I don’t think that’s extremely high, but I would still call a couple of other plumbers to get quotes.
Also depending on where you live prices could fluctuate
