Preferred Method For A NYC Water Line Replacement

There are various methods ways to perform an underground water line replacement. Each of these methods comes with an associated cost, and risks.

Not every underground replacement job is the same, so it’s best to understand what method is right for this job and the unique challenges and features it presents.

Tunneling Methods

Using short pieces of pipe, along with compressed air to blow the dirt out from the tunnel creates a space just large enough to slide a new copper line through.

Piece by piece the pipe is installed, with the compressed air blowing the dirt out which eliminates any chance of underground utility line damage.

This method also requires very little excavation which reduces the amount of labor needed, and in turn, keeps the cost down.

Pipe Bursting For Underground Water Line Installation

Another method used to perform underground water line replacement work is pipe bursting. This method bursts the old line, by essentially enlarging it and using the old line as a conduit to pull through the new water service line. But, pipe bursting does have its drawbacks, particularly in the NYC area.

Pipe Pulling & Directional Boring

There are also pipe pulling and boring methods for water line replacement and installation work. These methods come in particularly handy when damaging sensitive or valuable finished surfaces must be avoided.

While the set-up time, and size of the sending pits may pose a challenge, frequently the benefits outweigh these challenges. Directional boring and pipe pulling can allow for water line installations with a minimal amount of excavations.

These specialized water line replacement and installation methods can frequently be more expensive. The overall savings can come in the form not having to restore valuable finished surfaces like valuable landscaping and pavers.
