What is Trenchless Line Repair?
Trenchless water line replacement allows the professional plumbing service to dig a small hole near the water line connection at your home and another one at the main water connection. The plumber uses special equipment to “tunnel” the new water service line replacement between the two holes instead of digging a trench.
Once the new line is tunneled through, your water is reconnected, and service is restored. Trenchless water line repair is quick and very cost-effective. It also prevents serious damage to your landscaping by having to dig up the old water line and limits the time your home does not have running water.
