Water Line Replacement Service
Your water lines get more use than any other pipes in your home, being under near constant pressure, and need proper care so they stay in good shape. Unfortunately, there were a number of unreliable piping materials used over the years that will stop working sooner or later, and it’s in your best interest to get them replaced as soon as possible to avoid a dramatic and messy finale.
Polybutylene pipe -- this is a plastic pipe of either blue or grey color that was installed in homes between the late 70’s and mid 90’s, in both new homes built during that time, and also in older homes that had water line replacements throughout that time. It wasn’t discovered until later that the chlorine in the water supply reacts with the material in the pipe, turning it brittle. Because of this, all tubing made out of polybutylene will fail at some point, and you should replace it at the nearest opportunity, rather than wait for it to break down on its own. They have a tendency to flare up around the change of seasons, due to the ground’s temperature changing that of the water, causing the pipe to expand or contract. Call us to schedule a water line replacement if you’ve got these pipes in your home.
Copper pipe replacement -- copper is one of the main types of piping used to replace water lines, however the utility company’s treatment plant uses particular products to clean the water they put through those lines, and this can sometimes damage or corrode the copper pipes faster than you’d think. Call us to schedule a service call to find out if your copper pipes are in need of help.
Well pipes (polyethylene) -- this is one of the most trustworthy and durable types of piping available. They’ve been in use for well over 80 years on well systems, and they don’t get corroded or react in a weird way to treated water or well water. These are one of our plumbers’ preferred types of piping to use in a water line replacement.
As a plumbing contractor we can replace any of these types of pipes, and will help determine what state yours are in, and if they are safe for the time being, or if it’s time to install new ones. Call to see which of our plumbing services will make your life easier!
Trenchless Water Line Installation
We install water lines via the trenchless methods that leave your yard in tact, with only one small hole being dug to install the pipes, rather than digging up the entire lawn like the ways of the past. This saves untold time and effort on our part, which means money on your part, and leaves your home looking as beautiful as ever after we’re through, with no piles of dirt or uprooted sod.
There are some circumstances which can not be predicted in advance, nor seen until our plumbers are physically installing the water lines, that will prohibit the trenchless method from working on your home, in which case we will revert to the digging method to complete the job.
