Expert Water Line Installation Service
One of the greatest things about modern water line installations is that they can be done via the trenchless method. If you haven’t heard of trenchless installations, it means our plumbers will dig a small hole at the start of the pipes and use special equipment to drag it underground all the way up to your property.
This is in lieu of the previous method of digging up the current pipes, installing new ones, and then covering it again with the removed dirt and sod. With trenchless installation, there is no large mess, no torn-up yard, and no giant holes dug throughout your lawn. When our plumbers leave, your home or commercial property will look just as beautiful as it did when we arrived, but you’ll have brand-new water lines to show for it.

Trenchless Water Line Installation
We offer two types of trenchless water lines. The first is a pneumatic piston or “mole.” The mole is used for short, relatively flat segments up to 30 feet long and is often used to cross under driveways or short yards. Once the mole starts moving, we have no control of its direction. We put it in the ground, aim it in the direction we want it to go, and turn it on. Then we wait for it to show up in the receiving hole. Typically it goes perfectly straight, but large rocks and tree roots can deflect it.
The other method is know as directional boring. With directional boring, we can do a lot more. Single shots can be up to 250 feet long with great precision. We can go uphill, downhill, and around corners to hit a target 12 inches big from any distance we need. The bore can vary in size, depending what size pipe we are installing, but 1.5 inches is the most common for water lines. The drill is operated by two technicians; one feeds the steel rods into the ground and steers the direction while the other walks along with the shaft to read and communicate information back to the driver. Between these two methods, along with old-fashioned trenching, our capabilities are unlimited.
