What are the benefits of trenchless repair?
Trenchless technology eliminates the need for excessive digging. We simply create two access points to your pipe, feed the new line underground, and make the new connection. With a Pipe Wrench Plumbing technician at your side, your water line will be repaired in less time, with no stress on your part.
The process minimizes damage to your yard. After a trenchless water line repair, you won’t have to worry about calling another contractor to repave your driveway, repair your lawn, or redo your landscaping.
The trenchless method only takes about 2-3 days to complete, compared to the weeks-long process using traditional excavation methods. This saves you time and allows you to return to your normal routine much more quickly.
What’s causing your water line problem?
A variety of factors can increase the risk of a water line break.
In many cases, your home’s water lines may be over 30 years old. While the materials used for water lines have changed over time, older water lines are manufactured with ceramic materials. While a ceramic pipe can last for a long time, shear forces can lead to cracks in the casing around a pipe.
For example, ground can shift over the course of decades. If a concrete sidewalk or other structure is built on top of a ceramic water line, pressure from the structure will cause the pipe to crack.
Cold weather can also increase the risk of a pipe burst. When water freezes inside a pipe, it expands and puts stress on the pipe. The force of expansion is very powerful and can rupture metal, plastic, and ceramic pipes.
What are signs of pipe trouble?
One of the most noticeable signs of a ruptured water line is higher water bills. If your water bill is significantly higher than it has been in the past, you may have a leaking line.
A ruptured water line can also lead to flooding. However, this can vary based on the permeability of soil. If a pipe runs through clay or another dense type of ground material, water can often rise to the surface; ground with more sand, on the other hand, is less likely to create flood problems. In these situations, water will simply drain deeper into the soil.
More severe water line damage can lead to dirt or other contaminants entering your home’s water supply. Your water heater may also have dirt accumulating underneath the unit.
A damaged water line will also reduce water pressure throughout your home.
