The problem is that water lines are not without faults. Shifts in the ground, old pipes, and bad luck make a water line leak. This allows undesirable components to mix with drinking water, which in turn makes that water taste funny or unsafe to drink.

To repair a leak, it is important to determine where it is. This is why leak detection is an invaluable tool. While there are many ways to detect water leaks, the most accurate is by utilizing specialized equipment. This allows detection of the leak with regards to its specific location in the pipe. Once the leak is detected, repairs begin.
At Pacific Plumbing and Drain, two methods are used to replace water lines:
Trenchless water line replacement is the most convenient form of replacement. It utilizes a machine that shoots the new water line underground using only two small excavation holes. This is used to replace the existing water line or to add a new line entirely. The advantage of trenchless replacement is the fact that it does not require the entire line to be excavated. This can leave precious plants and green lawns unharmed. Excavated water line replacements are the traditional method of faulty water line replacement. They require the entire portion of the line to be excavated. This method of replacement requires more time, but it is ideal if only a small portion of line needs to be replaced.
Water lines are the type of plumbing that needs to be done right to minimize potential problems while maximizing the quality of the water carried by them. One small mistake spells eventual disaster.
When it comes to water line replacement, trust Pacific Plumbing & Drain to do it right. We service the Portland and Vancouver Metro areas with quality service designed to be both convenient and reliable.
This innovative technique known as trenchless water main installation has replaced the need to dig large trenches all over the homeowner’s property. With just a moderate hole dug at each end of the damaged pipe, the water line can be repaired with minimal damage to the area.
Contingent on the type of piping used initially in the main water line of the home, it may be necessary for main water line replacements. If the homebuilder used the older galvanized or iron pipes, replacing these pipes would be advisable.
