Leak detection in water lines in underground PVC pipes along with the subsequent repair is one of my many specialties. Call Bill Harley at 706-855-8304 to locate and repair any size water line, sprinkler line, or sewer line leak and provide you with a one-year warranty.
If you have a new structure and need the initial installation of your water line from the county, city, municipal supplier, or your private well run to your home, business, or out-building, we have the equipment and expertise to complete the job. If a septic tank is required for your rural application, I can provide the concrete tank and install the distribution box and drain fields per your plans to meet all codes.
Due to our rocky and shale soils that are common here in the CSRA, special attention should be given to dirt that the PVC pipe is going to be buried in contact with. Sharp rocks in our native soils will penetrate the all-too-common schedule “20” PVC pipes and even the thicker schedule “40” PVC pipes over a period of time. This premature failure and puncturing of the pipes is caused by static friction, water hammering, and water movement within the pipes. To help prevent costly future repairs to your water lines, we recommend lining any and all water line ditches with sand or sand-clay material prior to laying any PVC pipe in the ditch. We then carefully “bed” the sand around the pipe and completely cover it with approximately 4 inches to 6 inches of sand before the final covering and compacting of the ditches with the onsite native soil.
When we complete your underground water line repair, you will not have to call in a landscape contractor to repair your sod or natural area. We have all the varieties of Southern sod that we can install on any disturbed turf areas in your yard. If it is necessary to trench on a large rural area that is going to require seeding and/or pine straw mulch for soil stabilization, we can handle the total site restoration for you as part of our total service.
