Repair and Replacements
We specialize in the repair and replacement of main water service lines, which are usually made of copper, PVC, galvanized steel, or the dubious “blue poly.” In the ground, copper oxidizes and galvanized steel rusts terribly, releasing rust particles into your drinking water and causing serious leaking issues. PVC has a tendency to crack with temperature changes, and blue polybutylene is a type of plastic water pipe designed to be a cheap alternative to copper plumbing but actually turned out to cause disastrous leaks and lawsuits. We replace these faulty materials with a product called Wirsbow/Uponor. Sometimes referred to as PEX (cross-linked polyethylene), or P.E. pipe, this flexible material safely expands and contracts with temperature changes, is impervious to chlorine and other minerals, is rust-proof and is an all-around hardy product. We offer warranties on all products, and we don’t tear up your yard in the process. We safely avoid your buried utilities and flush your new waterline to ensure that no dirt, clay, or any other small particles make their way into your home’s water system.
