Why Replace Lead Pipes?
Water Main Replacement and Repair in Toronto & GTA
The water main is your supply line’s prime plumbing fitting responsible for sending water from the municipal or city line right to your home. The water main may need replacement if it has spent a long time underground.
These issues may be too numerous to fix and may require your water main to be replaced. The water main is a mostly trenched pipe that is set to align with the main supply line of the municipal or city water authority. Trenching may cause some issues for the water main line’s integrity after a while.
There are areas where trenching is required to fix your water main while trenchless methods can also be used in some areas to fix a leaking or damaged water supply line. To fix your water main properly, it is vital to employ Aquarescue to fix your supply line and assure you the best service in the Toronto Plumbing business.
Methods we Commonly Use for Water Meter Replacement in Toronto
Water Meter Replacement and Repair
The methods used in water main replacement are trenching and trenchless. Under these two methods, there are sub-methods for the trenchless method, one for repairs and the other for replacement, while the trenching method is singular. We are going to take a look at these methods in the replacement of water mains. Here they are;
Trenching - trenching involves the digging up of the covering soil to reveal the leaky or damaged pipe, which is then replaced with another pipe which is mostly more durable after which the surrounding earth is used to cover the new pipe once more. In trenching, there is a possibility of replacing the damaged pipe with a much larger pipe, and there is also the possibility of re-routing the pipe’s direction if desired. It is a tedious process but yields good results overall. The moling technology is also a trenched method and uses a less invasive approach to replacing your water main. However, it can only be efficiently used if you desire to change the position of your water main.

Trenchless pipe replacement - the trenchless method is the most recent method of the two in replacing water mains and other underground plumbing works. The trenchless method involves no digging and is mostly preferred in areas where a lot of replacement work is to be done. These are the two methods used in replacing buried pipes without trenching
Pipe Lining - the pipe lining method is used for trenchless pipe repairs. This involves an insertion of a special tube which is coated with adhesive which makes the tube stick to the affected area of the pipe as it is gradually expanded with a high-pressured air blast through the pipe. This tube secures the piping from leaks and makes it good for usage once again.
Pipe Bursting - the pipe bursting method is mostly used for the replacement of the water main. This piping replacement technique generally involves a hydraulic-powered cone pulled through the old pipe, tearing it with the seams it makes through the pipe. This technique then involves a simultaneous pull of another new pipe through the space left by the old pipe. There are numerous advantages of the trenchless method. It can be used to replace pipes without any digging, a much larger pipe can be inserted in place of the old one, and the hydraulic pull can destroy any buried pipe with relative ease.
Pipes Used in Water Main Replacement and Repairs - the pipes used in water main replacement and repairs are in variants with different tensile strengths and for use in a variety of soils. Also, some of these pipes are more durable than others and some can outlast the others for a few more decades.
Iron Pipes - cast iron pipes are mostly present in water main fittings where the home dates back to the 1970s or earlier. These pipes are durable and are built to last for up to a century. These pipes are now less used in modern buildings but are still one of the most durable pipes used in the connection of water mains to the municipal or city water supply line which runs through residential areas.
Steel Pipes - steel is made for the areas where the topsoil is prone to earth movements which may easily damage underground pipes made with synthetic material. The steel pipe is made to last for many decades and is resistant to corrosion for an extended period of time.
Copper Pipes - large-sized copper pipes are used in water supply lines, and the much smaller pipes can be used in fitting the home’s supply network. The use of copper in supplying potable water is deemed to be very safe by industry standards. These pipes are also resistant to cover surface earth pressure.
C-PVC Pipes - since the piping for your water main is meant to flow underground, the chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (C-PVC) is more ideal for your water main. It doesn’t come with any health risks and is one of the few lightweight, yet durable. C-PVC can last for several decades and can be used with relative ease, on top of the fact that it is cheap.
