Trenchless Water Line Replacement

You’ve probably heard of trenchless sewer line repair, but there are also ways to replace water lines without digging up the entire pipe. The water line for most single-family homes runs from the front or side of the house to the property line. Trenchless methods are much less disruptive to landscaping than open excavation.

The best water line replacement method depends on the type and size of the pipe, the layout of your property, and other factors. We’ll start with an inspection and then lay out your repair options. Your questions are welcome and encouraged! We want you to feel comfortable and confident about the process.

Here are some of the trenchless water line replacement services we offer.

  • Pipe Splitting

    Pipe splitting is similar to the pipe bursting method used for sewer line replacement. We dig two small entry and exit pits near your foundation and property line. Then we pull a cutter head through the existing damaged pipe, followed by a new pipe. The cutter splits and expands the old pipe, and the replacement pipe fits neatly in the space left behind.

    We can perform pipe splitting on plastic and copper pipes. In most cases, the job gets done in one day!

  • Horizontal Boring

    If you need to change the direction of your water line or establish a new one, horizontal boring is the answer. We dig two small holes at the entry and exit points, then use a specialized drill to bore an underground tunnel for the new line. The new line is pulled through the tunnel and connected on each end. You get a brand-new water line with minimal digging!
