When you need a water line replacement, the experts at Boyd can help you understand your options. The two most common solutions are slip lining and pipe bursting:
Slip lining: a smaller pipe is inserted within an existing pipe, allowing water to flow more freely and preventing leaks.
Pipe bursting: a handy piece of equipment with a cone-shaped head slips down into an existing pipe, tearing apart and pushing aside old plumbing. New plumbing is then attached to the end of the device, pulling it through — and pipes are as good as new!
These water line replacement services are often used to address pipe decay and water leaks. If you wonder whether or not you have a leak, our leak detection services can help.
Leaking pipes can cause mold growth, high utility bills, and structural or cosmetic damage to your home…but you can often detect water line leaks before the damage is done. Some leaks are located underground, beneath foundations, or inside walls, so you’ll need a professional to locate and fix them.
As soon as you notice any of the above warning signs…call Boyd Plumbing! Since the source of a leak can often be hard to find, we use ultrasonic technology (acoustic emission detection), to pinpoint the exact location and cause of the problem.
This plumbing technology helps us detect sound loss in your pipes. Escaping liquids create an acoustic signal as they pass through holes in your pipes, and we can hear it. We can also analyze these sounds to determine leak severity and provide the best possible pipe repair solution.
