Water Main & Sewer Service
Why “trenchless” is better
Typically, when a plumber has to service your water main or sewer pipes, he/she uses a backhoe to dig a trench in the ground in order to access the portion of the pipe that needs repair. United Plumbing offers a better, cheaper alternative—trenchless boring. With trenchless boring, we bore underground from the water meter to your basement or crawlspace. Then we pull the new water line or sewer pipe through the bore hole, so there is no need to tear up your lawn or garden. Best of all, trenchless boring is typically faster and less expensive than traditional methods.
We use high-grade, long-lasting Wirsbo PEX pipes
Copper pipes have long been the industry standard, but a new type of pipe manufactured by Wirsbo is increasingly being used in home plumbing. PEX pipes are extremely durable. They have a high temperature tolerance, corrosion resistance and protection against chemicals. In addition, they are warranted up to 25 years.
