Water Main Inspection

One watermain typically serves several, even hundreds of homes, businesses, and commercial buildings. When a water main breaks, it can create a cascading effect, impacting the main source of water for nearby businesses, households, or multi-family residences.

If repairs are not done correctly and according to city codes, the construction, rehabilitation, and repair of a water main line can contaminate the water supply and the entire distribution system.

If not done correctly and according to city codes, the construction, rehabilitation, and repair of a water main line can contaminate the water supply and the entire distribution system. That’s why water main leak repair requires a skilled local plumber familiar with Seattle area plumbing codes. At Rush Plumbing of Seattle our qualified plumbers know how to safely and effectively perform a trenchless water main replacement and repair so your water supply can be turned back on with minimal interruption and without the concern of contamination to the water in your area.

We typically use one of two techniques to repair or replace your 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.

What is the water main line?

The water main is the line that feeds water from your utility provider to your house. Homeowners should be aware of their water main and how the line connects. If you’re not sure how all this works, plumbers at Rush Plumbing are glad to give you tips about what to look for, so you’re not shriveled up and dry about your water main.

Do I need to replace my water main line?

Without knowing more about your specific situation, it’s difficult to say if your water main line needs to be repaired or replaced. Give us a call right away and a Rush Plumbing water main line specialist will come out immediately to perform an inspection and determine what needs to be done. Make sure to contact us as soon as possible because the water main line disruptions can cause extreme damage.

Water Heater Installation

Rush Plumbing replaced our water heater quickly and for the quoted price. Never happy to have something significant call it quits in our home but working with Robert was a great experience.

Water Heater Installation

Fast, friendly, professional, does the work right the first time at a very reasonable cost... Had three exterior hose bibbs replaced and all work was completed in about two hours.... Highly recommend Rush Plumbing as your first call if you need a quality plumber.

Plumbing Fixture Installation

Rush Plumbing has been our lead plumbing vendor for over two years now. Our relationship started when we had a leak in our basement commercial kitchen hallway and no one was able to determine where it was coming from as it would come and go. Robert spent some time taking a look at the area and determined it was a leak from the faucet upstairs, I was highly skeptical but after he repaired the faucet, the leak never came back. Robert and his crew have always been responsive and take the time to make sure to address any of our concerns, we highly recommend Rush Plumbing for your plumbing needs.

Commercial Plumbing

I have used Rush Plumbing several times over many years and will continue to do so in the future. I love working with both Liz and Robert on everything from scheduling to planning and the work, and always feel my time and home are respected. I appreciate how quickly they get back to me when I reach out with questions or have had to reschedule - they are so accommodating! Recently I had my house repiped and could not be happier with the result and the work. Thank you, Rush Plumbing!

Pipe Repair & Repiping

Working with Robert and Liz at Rush Plumbing was fantastic! From the time we broke ground on build-out we were able to complete the entire project in 5 months. That would not have been possible if not for the efficient work and service put in by Rush Plumbing to expedite the permitting process, install, inspections, and close-out. Thank you Rush Plumbing team!!
