    Our residential plumbers professionally install main waterlines for your home or any size landscape irrigation. We can also add backflow preventers to your existing water lines.
  • Water Line Repairs

    We repair all residential water lines no matter what material or size they are, except for lead pipes. Lead residential water lines are mandated to be replaced per the lead free act.
  • Water Line Reroutes

    Water leaks under the slab of a home can often be rerouted over head or around the outside of the building. However, in some cases it may be necessary to tunnel to make the repair or replace the damaged line.
  • Pipe Inspections

    Smell a sewage odor at the front door? Without the right equipment, finding the cause can be a challenge. It also takes experience to be able to troubleshoot the issue.With our up-to-date video pipe inspection system, we can see inside the sewer lines, right to the problem area. We can then quickly find the buried clean outs. This reduces the amount of digging needed to fix the problem. A quick diagnosis and avoiding unnecessary labor reduces the cost of repair. Our technology also reduces unnecessary damage to the slab and surrounding landscape.
  • Under Slab Tunnelling

    When residential plumbing failures happen beneath a home’s slab, many clients panic. Fortunately, our residential plumbers specialize in accessing the problem safely. We hydro tunnel to the plumbing problem using a high-pressure water jet system.
    A vacuum truck extracts the mud for quick, clean disposal. Our residential slab tunneling minimizes the impact on the surrounding landscaping. Once the necessary repairs are made, pump sand fills the hole and is compacted to finish the job.
