How Are Water Main Lines Repaired Or Replaced In Portland?
Due to their location, it sometimes requires digging and excavation to service your water main line. In most instances, however, we are able to replace your water service with a trenchless installation. This means that there is very minimal digging on your property and once the job is completed, it can seem like we were never there. Your city’s plumbing codes regulate the materials we are able to use in your water main line. Depending on the material of your water main line, we may be required to replace the entire line. This is usually the case for older metallic based water main lines, such as galvanized iron pipe. If a repair is possible, we will remove the damaged pipe, replace it with a new pipe, and make all of the connections. After repair or replacement, we will test the line and do a basic restoration of the area we disturbed with excavation.
