Trenchless Water Main Replacement in Diamond Bar, California

In a recent project by @utilityplumbingservices in Diamond Bar, California, a completely severed 1-inch galvanized water main was discovered. This prompted the customer to opt for a full replacement. The team expertly assessed the property’s terrain to determine the best approach for the replacement. They decided on a trenchless boring method. This strategic choice involved digging potholes around the property to avoid cutting into the sidewalk or driveway, significantly reducing the overall cost for the customer.

The trenchless method allowed the team to bore from the water meter up the hill and seamlessly tie into the irrigation system. They were able to shoot 20 feet under the driveway without damaging any concrete. A polyethylene pipe was installed from the water meter to the irrigation system, eventually connecting to the home.

Additionally, they installed a pressure reducing valve, a ball valve, and a hose bib, ensuring the new water service was fully functional and up to standard. This efficient and minimally invasive approach saved the customer from major disruptions and expenses, highlighting the benefits of trenchless technology in plumbing projects.
