Trenchless Water Line Replacements

Serving Vancouver WA | Portland OR

Trenchless water main installation services provided by Pacific Plumbing and Drain Cleaning in Vancouver WA and Portland ORLeaks or breaks in a water line always happen at the least convenient time. The main water line is the principal water line in from the city’s water supply to the home. This is a prime reason to call the trenchless water line replacements experts at Pacific Plumbing & Drain immediately. Due to the fact that the main water lines are underground, small leaks are usually ignored until the homeowner is knee deep in water.

What are trenchless water line replacements?

Typically, when a water line is damaged, the only way to find the damage is to dig the entire length of the water pipe. Puddles in the lawn can help locate the damaged piping underneath. The cost to repair lawns, sidewalks or driveways on top of restoring the pipeline in the ground is quite costly.

This innovative technique known as trenchless water main installation has replaced the need to dig large trenches all over the homeowner’s property. With just a moderate hole dug at each end of the damaged pipe, the water line can be repaired with minimal damage to the area.

The new piping is then fed down through the tunnel created by the existing old pipeline; the old pipe is withdrawn, and the new pipe is pulled into place. The newer piping is strong and durable to last many years, reducing the chance of another possible breakdown in the future. The trenchless water line technology is used on damaged pipelines throughout the country with great success. Contact the professionals at Pacific Plumbing & Drain if there is an unexpected hike in the water bill- it could be a sign of a water line leak.

Do I need a trenchless main water line replacement?

Water lines typically break down because of old pipes. If the home is over ten years old, the water pipes may be deteriorating from normal usage and age. Improper installation, soil conditions, the type of piping used and chemicals in water collectively wear piping out. It is easy to let it go unnoticed for a certain amount of time. If you suspect there’s a leak, Pacific Plumbing & Draining can evaluate the situation.
