Test Your Service Line

Test Your Service Line

The customer-owned service line extends from the curb stop into your basement or crawl space. Identification of the type of material used for service lines and in-home plumbing can be done using a magnet and a penny. Your service line material should be tested where the line first enters the home, which is typically in the basement before the water meter  (see diagram).

Cleveland Water does not have information on the material types of customer-owned service lines and we need your help filling in this data for us so we can meet Ohio EPA requirements and plan future infrastructure improvement projects. After you perform the test, please complete the information below. You will need your billing account number.
