Water Leaks, Repairs, and Line Replacement
Plumbing Services in Dallas and the Greater Dallas / Fort Worth Area
Leaking water pipe repair is a plumber’s primary duty. Levy and Son service plumbers perform numerous repairs daily. With the use of line tracking equipment, air injection and precise noise listening and magnification equipment no leak can hide from our professional service representatives. After locating a leak, a plumbing repair or line replacement can be performed on any type piping material.
Some piping types and piping conditions make repairs a bad economic solution. Replacement is more logical. A supervisor/sales person will be glad to submit a proposal for the line replacement. Our trained crews determine if you actually have a water leak and whether it is located above or below the concrete foundation. We specialize in pinpoint detection to minimize the expense of accessing the leaking water pipe and making permanent repairs.
A water relay refers to the water line from the meter to the house. This line is typically in need of complete replacement when it is an old galvanized line, poorly located under a tree or a line that has had several repairs. The new water line to be installed will be properly sized as per current city plumbing code requirements. The method for digging is by use of a walk behind trencher, hand digging, or in some cases, trenchless digging. Trenchless digging is a very popular method for digging gas relays, water relays and sewer replacements when accessible. Trenchless digging gives us the ability to trench under sidewalks, driveways, trees, landscaping and sprinkler systems without disturbing the surface. We open 2 to 3 foot pits at each end and trench or tunnel in between. These pits may vary depending on the job requirements. Eliminating concrete work, landscaping and time-consuming yard repairs make this method of digging a must if your project allows. A new valve box with isolation valve will be installed near the house and outdoor hydrant if requested. A city permit and inspection fee is required on all water relays.
