With over 25 years of experience you will be assured that your water line will be replaced by our licensed plumbers without any damage caused to your homes gardens, yards, driveways etc.

We use our own patented "Pipe Genie" Pipe Bursting equipment for the replacement of existing water line pipes. The existing pipe, once burst, becomes the guide path for the new pipe being installed. This technique bursts the old pipe and in so doing displaces the fragmented old pipe into the surrounding soil. This creates a hole of roughly the same dimension as the original. If a larger diameter pipe is to be installed a larger 'expanding cone' is used to increase the size of the hole. Once done, the new pipe is pushed or pulled into position.

Trenchless pipe replacement simply means there is no requirement to dig a trench in order to install / replace underground pipes.

The chief benefits of this system are time reductions, cost efficiency and minimal damage to landscaping. Please see our section on pipe replacement for benefits and  more detailed information and examples. A variation of this method is called 'Pipe Slitting' which breaks the pipe by longitudinal slitting.

With our trenchless pipe bursting technology, we will not cause ant damage to your lawns, driveways, gardens as we do not dig a trench across your property. We did just 2 small holes, one where we place our pipe bursting equipment and one where we pull the new water line through See Example
