Main Water Line Installation & Repairs
Main water line repairs or installations can be very costly. The cost depends a great deal on if it is a spot repair, length of run when doing a total line replacement, depth to dig, whether excavation will be through trees or other obstructions or open area.
Repair or Total Line Replacement
A general rule of thumb – a very old line from before 80’s, if it is a galvanized pipe, could be at its practical life and be ready for total replacement. A copper line generally lasts many years UNLESS in a corrosive soil environment then can be greatly reduced.
Plastic lines from the 60’s to 80’s vary a lot. Plastic lines (PVC, HDPE, PE) from the 80’s and later are expected to last many years. Whether you need a spot repair or total line replacement, at Jenni Plumber we will determine the scope of work needed and get you back to a leak-proof water line.
Know What’s BELOW. Call Before You Dig.
Before you begin any digging call 811. This is a FREE service available everywhere in the USA. Every digging job requires a call even small projects. If you hit an underground utility line while digging, you can disrupt service to an entire neighborhood and potentially be responsible for fines and repair costs.
See the 811 website for more details. They will come out and mark the locations of all the underground utilities for you. In addition to helping you avoid accidentally digging up a utility pipe or wire, this will also help you locate exactly where your existing water supply pipe is located! Again, both the phone call and the service are FREE.
