Pipe inspection.

Inspection and Assessment

The first step in underground pipe replacement is a thorough inspection and assessment of the existing pipes. This is typically done with video cameras, which help to identify any leaks, blockages, or damage in the pipes accurately. Based on the assessment, our contractors can determine the scope of work and provide you with an estimate for the replacement project.


Planning and Permitting

Once the inspection is complete, the next step is to create a detailed plan for the pipe replacement project. This includes determining the most appropriate materials, pipe sizes, and trenching methods required. Obtaining permits may also be necessary from local authorities before commencing the work.


Excavation and Pipe Replacement

The excavation process involves digging trenches in the designated areas where the old pipes are located. This step is crucial and requires the expertise of underground pipe replacement professionals. They typically use specialized equipment and techniques to minimize disruption and damage to the existing landscape; the old pipes are then removed and replaced with new ones.

Testing and Restoration

After the new pipes are installed, a thorough testing phase is conducted to ensure they are functioning properly. This may involve pressure tests, leak detection, and flow assessments. Once the pipes pass the testing phase, the trenches are backfilled, and the area is restored to its original condition.
