Water main replacement is one of the areas where plumbing technology has made huge strides. It is more convenient and less disruptive than ever before. Modern techniques minimize digging and speed up the whole process. The first step in adding a new water main is to determine the location of all buried utilities in the area. This is essential because helps prevent accidentally digging up another utility – such as a gas or electric line! Next, the general trajectory and angle between the water source, such as the city water main, and the building water access is calculated. A hole is then dug at the intake location and at the foundation of the building where its intake will be located. An auger is then run from the water source to the foundation. A light line is attached to the auger, and drawn back through the hole it has bored. The line is attached to a flexible water line – drinking water grade, of course – and pulled through the newly created tunnel. With the line in place, all that needs to be done is to attach fixtures to either end and hook it up to the water source and to the building’s plumbing.
