Knoxville Trenchless Water Line Repair
Repair Services without the Additional Damage
Your landscaping is the first thing guests see and you’ve worked hard to make it look just right. The last thing you need is an open trench damaging your lawn and plants for months to come. Traditionally, when a water line breaks, a plumber has to make a big mess to fix it, digging up your yard to get to the root of the problem. At Pipe Wrench Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, Inc., we do things differently, offering trenchless repair services using the latest techniques and technology.
The Benefits of Trenchless Water Line Repair
Trenchless technology eliminates the need for excessive digging. Instead, we simply create two access points to the pipe, feed the new line underground, and make the new connection. This means that our technicians repair your water line in less time, with less damage, with little to no stress on your part.
After a trenchless water line repair, you won’t have to worry about calling another contractor to repave your driveway, replant your lawn, or redo your landscaping. Best yet, the trenchless method only takes about two to three days to complete, compared to the weeks-long process traditional excavation methods require. This allows you to quickly return to your normal routine.
What Causes Water Line Issues?
A variety of factors can increase the risk of a broken water line. The most common issue is age. Pipes and plumbing lines are “out of sight, out of mind,” and many people ignore them until something goes wrong. Materials used to make water lines have also changed over time and older ceramic lines are more prone to cracks and leaks.
This is why we strongly recommend a thorough inspection from our Knoxville plumbers if your lines are over 30 years old. Ground shifts, normal pressure, cold weather, tree root infiltration, and more can all cause older pipes to crack and need to be repaired.
What Are Common Signs of Pipe Trouble?
Don’t know the age or health of your pipes? Look for a few of these common signs of a potential problem:
- High water bills: If you notice a spike on your monthly utility bill, it may be a sign of a leaking water line. Don’t let this issue go untreated as it could cost you hundreds or even thousands in wasted water.
- Floods: Depending on the composition of your soil, you may or may not notice a line rupture in the form of flooding in your yard.
- Foul-smelling or discolored drinking water: Dirt and contaminants can infiltrate your water supply through cracks and breaks in the water lines.
- Reduced water pressure: Compromised pipes and leaks can reduce the water running through them, thus reducing the water pressure at the tap.
The Knoxville plumbers at Pipe Wrench Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, Inc. will work quickly to solve your water line issues, ensuring that we leave your property as beautiful as we found it.
