Addressing water line problems quickly is vital to reducing the damage to your home or business. Because of the pressure that the water coming into your home is under, a leak or break can quickly result in flooding, water damage and structural problems. Since water lines are often obscured by walls, floors and foundations, the first thing we will do is inspect the line with our camera equipment. This equipment allows us to see into the water line and pinpoint the cause and location of the damage.

In some cases, the coating is not possible. This is especially true if your pipes are constructed of lead or Polybutylene; both of these materials have been found to be unsafe for water supply and will need to be removed completely. This will involve the excavation of your property.
