Cracked water lines and property damage is a homeowner’s worst nightmare. Fortunately, installing a trenchless waterline under your property’s foundation can prevent future damage to your pipes and even improve the quality of your water. Here is everything you need to know about pipe damage and installing a trenchless waterline!
Detecting Issues with Your Waterline
Have you been noticing issues with your water supply? Is it discolored? Does it taste funny? Your waterline may be corroded and therefore, in need of replacing. Rust residue can turn your water orange or brown and can affect your health if ingested or used for bathing.
If you notice puddles forming in your yard, but there hasn’t been any rain, this most likely means that there is a pipe that is leaking below your foundation. If this is the case, it’s important that you contact a professional immediately to prevent any further damage to your home and yard.
If your water pressure doesn’t seem as powerful as it used to be, this could also be a sign that corrosion or debris is blocking the flow of your water.
Minimal Property Damage
So, you’ve decided that you need a trenchless waterline installed. One of the major benefits to this type of waterline installation is the minimal property damage that’s involved in the process. Traditionally, entire back yards would need to be destroyed to property replace pipes or clean up water damage.
With trenchless waterline installation, there are only two holes that need to be dug on your property to start and finish the job. One where the waterline begins and another where it ends. This technique is quick, easy, and won’t leave your yard a mess for months on end.

What Is It Ideal For?
It’s important to determine exactly when a trenchless waterline installation is necessary. Many homeowners who choose to repair their waterlines instead of replacing them entirely, can end up spending thousands in future damage repair costs. Investing in a newer system will guarantee decades of problem-free use that offers so many more benefits.
If your water pipes:
– Have been damaged by excessive thawing and freezing cycles in the winter months.
– Are leaking due to improper installation, or
– Are ruptured, cracked, or blocked underneath your home
then a trenchless water line install may be the best option for you.
