Installing a New Water Main Line
When installing a new water main line into a new structure, Windsor Plumbing will choose the best approach based on the current conditions and features of the property. Sometimes it’s better to dig out an open trench beforehand. And other times it might be better to use a boring machine for an underground installation of the water pipe to the main line. Windsor Plumbing will use excavators on-site for all underground work and will futhermore assure all utilities are identified before installation.
First, an entrance hole will be cut into the side of the building and a sleeve placed in the hole. This sleeve then house’s the water pipe line itself. The curb box is then attached to connect the water main to the municipal water source. Next, a shut-off valve will be installed in the event of future need to shut off the building’s water. Windsor Plumbing will schedule all inspections and confirm they are done on-site before any installation is completed.
