EXCAVATION SERVICES

When a water or main line breaks, you will need of an experienced excavation crew.

A broken water line or main (sewer) line is no joke. Because these pipes are larger and mostly located underground, an experienced excavation team is required to fix the problem. Most property owners don’t have the skill or equipment to resolve the matter themselves.

The first step is to use special camera equipment to locate the break. Our operator then uses a mini-excavator to dig a trench around the pipe. This gives them room to repair or replace the pipe. If there is minimal damage, the pipe can sometimes be relined. Most important, make sure your plumber has an experienced excavation crew and the right equipment to handle the job quickly and efficiently.

The second type of underground pipe that we deal with is a main line, which is also commonly referred to as your sewer line. And it’s the line that goes from your building (home or business) to your septic tank or city sewers. 

A broken main line is a serious problem. In addition to the smell and sewage that will seep or flood into your property, the problem can back up into your residence and cause extreme water damage. So the problem needs to be dealt with as quickly as possible. 

As with water lines, there are different types of repairs that can be made: from pipe lining to spot repairs to partial or complete repair and replacement. And just as with water line repairs, we strongly recommend that you allow your plumber to clean your sewer line thoroughly for the best results.

A main line can break for these and many other reasons:

  • Water pressure changes
  • Ground settling
  • Corrosion from soils
  • Tree roots
  • Frozen temperatures
  • No matter how your main sewer line breaks, the plumbers you choose should have trench digging and underground main line repair and replacement experience. They also need experience using the proper equipment — from video equipment to mini-excavators — to handle a large job such as this.

    For those of us in the plumbing business, there are two types of underground pipes: water lines and main lines.

    Water lines are what they sound like: they are pipes (or lines) that supply fresh water to your home or commercial property. There are different types of repairs for a broken water line, from pipe lining to spot repairs to partial or complete repairs. But before a repair or replacement is made, we strongly encourage you to have your pipes cleaned thoroughly for the best short- and long-term results.

    A water line can break for many reasons, including:

  • Water pressure changes

  • No matter how your water line breaks, the plumbers you choose should have trench digging and underground water line repair experience, as well as the proper equipment — from video equipment to mini-excavators — to handle a large job such as this.
