We typically use one of two plumbing techniques to repair or replace your water main and pipes.
Trenchless Water Line Repairs
With trenchless water line repair, the damaged pipes are lined with an epoxy that is as strong as new pipes, helps to prevent future root intrusion and stop leaks, and increases the flow capacity of your water lines. It’s a much more cost-effective alternative to replacing old pipes with new, and it’s less destructive to your lawn or property.
Directional Boring Main Repair Techniques
Directional boring techniques allow us to replace the broken pipe without digging up your property. By connecting the new pipe to the existing system, your damaged pipe can be replaced without harming your lawn or property. Best of all, the new pipe that we use is code-approved, root-proof, and leak-proof.
