When an underground pipe breaks in a tricky location, and a spot repair is unfeasible, either a reroute or a full repipe is in order. Our repair crew reroutes when only one leg of the pressurized plumbing system leaks. We cap off that section and reroute it overhead. When more than one leg of the system leaks, our plumbing crew can repipe the whole house. We use Wirsbo Pex piping, a lead-free, flexible solution, with a life expectancy of 100 years.
Our written proposals take into account both your schedule and your budget. Friendly office staff will coordinate with you to ensure a smooth repair with minimal disruptions. We are licensed and bonded and can pull all necessary permits. All work is completed to code, and our technicians handle any required code changes and organize the inspection with the appropriate building department. The day of the repair, our professional plumbers secure the area with barricades and caution tape, preparing a safe, clean environment.
Before excavation begins, a Bullseye technician--in conjunction with USA--clears the area for unknown utilities. Once excavation has begun, we maintain safety and cleanliness by shoring trenches with safety equipment and by storing excavated soil to better preserve your landscaping and property. Our technicians have the unique ability to identify secondary leaks, so repairs are not complete until the plumbing line passes a second inspection. When an excavation must remain open for inspection, we ensure that the area is safe and secure by laying down trench plating and barricades. To finish, our crew can patch back most hardscape surfaces.
Using the same principles as those listed above, our plumbing crew can also replace the entire water main line. After excavating the length of the pipe, we remove the old piping and install a new line. Material options include Aquatherm (extremely strong, made from recycled plastic and glass, with sections of pipe socket fused together), PVC, and copper. Sand or gravel bedding protects the new water main pipe from wear and tear.
When the terrain allows, trenchless water main replacement is an excellent, minimally invasive repair option. Our skilled crew excavates two access holes on either end of water main pipes up to 100 feet long. The trenchless apparatus works by expanding and bursting the old pipe, while feeding a new Aquatherm socket-fused pipe into place. With excavation kept to a minimum, you avoid the hassle and expense of replacing landscaping and hardscaping.
