Water Line Installation & Replacement
Do I repair or replace the water line?
Repairs can be temporary or permanent, depending on the pipe material installed. Polybutylene piping should always be replaced to prevent recurring leaks, a temporary repair can be made to keep your home or business with service until replacement arrangements can be made. Many other materials used for water line such as PVC, copper or polyethylene, can be repaired and last for many more years.
***Please note that just because a water line is BLUE in color, it does not mean that it is the dreaded polybutylene piping. Underground utilities may be color coded with BLUE referencing “water”.
