Main water lines have always been designed to last due to the extreme labor involved in replacing them. However, after years of use, water lines do fail. This is typically because of the material used in the water line, failing due to age, or foreign objects such as tree roots penetrating them in their search for water. Many times homeowners do not realize their main water lines have failed or begin leaking until they receive a huge water bill, or a notice from the city asking the homeowner to investigate the possibility of a water line leak. Homeowners do have options when it comes to main water line replacement to save costs. Trenchless water line replacement, often referred to as directional drilling, is an affordable option when compared to costs involved in full water line excavation.
Trenchless water line replacement represents the next step in replacing failing and inadequate water lines. This technique allows for entire water lines to be replaced while reducing both the cost and effort required to do so.
Trenchless replacement starts by creating two holes: one is where the water line begins, and the other is where it ends.
A hole for the pipe is then made underground. This may utilize one of several techniques, which can include directional drilling and pipe bursting. The most appropriate technique will depend upon the diameter of the water line, the material being used and so on.
Once this process has been completed, the water line can be connected from the access to the property’s plumbing. This allows for quick and efficient water line replacement.
Trenchless pipe replacement offers a few unique benefits over the traditional methods of replacing water lines.
