Main Waterline Repair

Common Main Water Line Problems We Handle

Our technicians have the experience to address all types of main water line issues. 

Some of the most common problems we handle include:

  • Leaks and bursts due to various factors, including age and corrosion
  • Tree root invasion into pipes causing damage and obstruction
  • Corrosion and wear over time reduce pipe performance
  • Sediment buildup or foreign objects leading to blocked water lines
  • Pipes freezing in cold climates and potentially bursting
  • Soil shifts or settling causing pipe misalignment
  • Excessive water pressure puts undue stress on pipes
  • Deterioration of old and outdated pipe materials necessitating replacement

If you suspect a break, immediately turn off the main water supply to halt the flow. It is typically located in the basement, by the water heater, or at the curb in a utility box. Once the water is off, capture images of visible damage for insurance claims and repair assessments. 

Our Repair Techniques

We start with a thorough assessment of the water line’s condition, utilizing the latest diagnostic tools to identify the source and extent of the issue. Our skilled technicians then select the most appropriate repair method that offers lasting results while considering the specifics of the issue, pipe type, and location.

Our repair techniques include:

  • Pipe bursting is an effective technique for severely damaged pipes, where we pull a new pipe through the old one, simultaneously breaking the old pipe and replacing it with a new one.
  • Hydrostatic testing involves filling the water line with colored water under pressure to pinpoint the exact location of a leak.
  • Epoxy pipe lining or cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining involves inserting and curing an epoxy liner inside the existing pipe to seal leaks and prevent future corrosion.
  • Pipe relining places a new pipe lining inside the old pipe to reinforce and repair it without removing the old pipe.
  • Slip lining inserts a “carrier pipe” into the larger host pipe and grouted into place, effectively creating a new, functional pipeline within the old one.
