Residential Water Line Replacement & Installations
We offer residential water line replacement and installations. Our water line replacement and new water line installation services can often be completed in a day or less. During our inspection of your water lines, we’ll assess the extent of the damage and determine if it would be more cost-efficient to choose water line repair or water line replacement:
Water Line Repair
For minor leaks and punctures, we can essentially create a new pipe inside of your old one. We insert a special sleeve into the pipe, which hardens and seals up cracks and holes. It even prevents new damage from occurring.
Water Line Replacement
For more major problems, we will recommend a new underground water line installation. We will dig a small access hole at each end of your water line. As we insert the new pipe in through the hole, it breaks apart and moves away the old pipe. Our replacement water pipes are resistant to leaks, corrosion, tree root intrusion, pests, and chemicals. They can last up to 100 years with proper maintenance.
Get an Estimate for the Cost to Replace a Main Water Line
We are always upfront and transparent about our water line replacement costs. Our goal is to save our customers time and money, and so we offer efficient main water line repairs and new water line install services. We use an innovative method for underground water line installation. This reduces labor and costs, and we can often complete new water line installation in a day or less. Does homeowners’ insurance cover main water line replacement? It depends on the cause of the water line issue, your insurance policy, your region, the extent of the damage, and other factors. Most insurance policies only cover problems related to water damage caused by bad weather, vandalism, property damage, or problems with the pipes inside your home and between your home and the water meter.
