Trenchless technology, the newest sewer repair method, is a type of subsurface construction work that requires few trenches or no continuous trenches. It is a rapidly growing sector of the construction and civil engineering industry. It can be defined as “a family of methods, materials, and equipment capable of being used for the installation of new or replacement or rehabilitation of existing underground infrastructure with minimal disruption to surface traffic, business, and other activities.”
We specialize in the most efficient processes for clearing sewage, including:
Water Line Replacement Options
Specialized Water Line Pulling
A means of replacing the existing water line by pulling out the OLD as you pull in a NEW. It just don’t get no greener than that!
The process starts by digging two small access pits. Sleeving a 1/2” cable through the existing water line from one end to the other. Connect one end of the cable to a soil displacement puller head. Fill the water line with a patented welding chemical, which fuses the Water Line to the pulling cable. Then attach the new Water Line to the back of the soil displacement puller head. On the other end, the cable is connected to a Highly Specialized Water Line Puller. Once all the items are in place and all preparations are complete, a seamless, safe, effective, and extremely efficient water line pull is started. Before you know it, a new water line is in the ground.
Unlike other trenchless technologies which run new water lines by creating a brand new route in untested & unknown soil conditions that can contain any number of unpredictable hazards, The 4 Service Pros specialized water line pulling system’s unique approach to replacing a water line takes advantage of an already established route for the new water line. It is installed in the same location as the old one. There is a slim to no chance that any other close or conflicting utilities would be damaged or destroyed by the water line replacement process. That includes underground irrigation, power, communications, gas & sewer.
I’m sure you can agree, it doesn’t get better than that!
A means of replacing your water line by creating a new path from the Curb Side Water Meter up to the assigned access in to the house or building by using a directional drill that can maneuver its way under existing underground utilities, sidewalks and driveways so to reach its intended destination.
Most plumbing contractors in our area rely on subcontractors to do their directional drilling so you are at the mercy of yet another contractor’s schedules. Delays are caused because your contractors often gets put off because of the subcontractor’s other jobs. At 4 Service Pros we invested the time training our master plumbers. And invested over 120 thousand to purchase our own drill so our clients never have to wait.
Very minimal excavation is required to prep and perform this type of project. The drill uses very sophisticated underground steering so we never miss the mark.
A means of installing a new water line by creating a new path with a pneumatic missile. This procedure requires two small excavation sites. One by the Curb Side Water Meter and the other by the intended access to the building. Carefully aiming the missile so it comes out at its intended destination. Sending in the missile from one excavation site to the other. Once the missile makes its destination, connect the new water line to the missile and pull it back to the original excavation.
A means of replacing the water line by digging it up in its entirety, removing the old defective line and installing a new one in its place.
