    Step-by-Step Guide to Trenchless Water Line Replacement

    1. Initial Inspection: Our experts conduct a thorough inspection of your water line using advanced diagnostic tools to identify the extent of the problem and determine the best course of action.
    2. Pipe Relining: If the existing pipe is structurally sound but has minor issues like cracks or leaks, we can use the trenchless pipe relining method. A flexible epoxy resin liner is inserted into the damaged pipe and inflated, creating a new seamless pipe within the old one.
    3. Pipe Bursting: In cases where the existing pipe is severely damaged or needs complete replacement, we employ the pipe bursting technique. A bursting head is inserted into the old pipe and pulled through, simultaneously breaking apart the old pipe and laying a new one in its place.
    4. Connection and Finishing: We ensure proper connections between the newly installed pipe and the existing plumbing system, perform comprehensive testing to ensure functionality, and restore the site to its original condition.

    Hydrovac Innovation for Trenchless Water Line Replacement

    Haynes Plumbing Services proudly employs cutting-edge technology, including hydrovac machines, to revolutionize trenchless water line replacement. The hydrovac, short for hydro-excavation, is a powerful tool that combines water and vacuum technology for precise and non-destructive soil excavation. Unlike traditional methods that can be invasive and risky, hydrovac machines offer a safer and more efficient alternative.

    How It Works

    The hydrovac process begins with a high-pressure water jet, precisely directed to break up and liquefy the soil. A vacuum system swiftly extracts the slurry, leaving a clean excavation site. This technique minimizes ground disturbance, reduces the risk of damage to existing utilities, and allows for accurate access to the water line. 
    The result is an effective and environmentally friendly approach to water line replacement, showcasing our commitment to advanced solutions here at Haynes Plumbing Services.


    While trenchless pipe lining offers numerous advantages, there are a few potential disadvantages to consider:

    • Limited Applicability: Trenchless pipe lining may not be suitable for all types of pipe materials or sizes. Certain pipes, such as those with excessive damage or significant collapses, may require alternative repair methods.
    • Cost Considerations: Trenchless pipe lining can be more expensive than traditional excavation and replacement methods. The specialized equipment, materials, and skilled labor involved in the process contribute to higher upfront costs.
    • Pipeline Diameter Reduction: The pipe lining process involves inserting a new liner into the existing pipe, which can reduce the internal diameter slightly. This reduction may impact the flow capacity of the pipe, particularly in cases where maximum flow rates are critical.
    • Limited Access Points: Trenchless pipe lining relies on access points to insert the liner. In some situations, limited access points may pose a challenge, especially if the pipe runs beneath obstacles or structures that prevent easy access.

    While these disadvantages exist, it is important to consult with a professional plumbing company to assess the feasibility of trenchless pipe lining for your specific situation. They can provide expert guidance on the best repair or replacement method for your pipes.

    A trenchless waterline refers to a method of repairing or replacing water supply lines without the need for extensive excavation. It is an innovative approach that minimizes disruption to the surrounding landscape and reduces the time and cost associated with traditional digging methods.

    In trenchless waterline technology, specialized equipment and techniques are employed to create a new waterline or rehabilitate an existing one with minimal excavation. This can involve methods such as pipe bursting, pipe reaming, or pipe lining.

    Pipe bursting involves breaking apart the existing pipe while simultaneously pulling a new pipe into place. Pipe reaming enlarges the diameter of the existing pipe by removing the old pipe and replacing it with a larger one. Pipe lining, also known as cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining, inserts a flexible liner coated with resin into the existing pipe, which is then cured to create a new, durable pipe within the old one.

    Trenchless waterline techniques offer numerous benefits, including reduced disruption to landscapes, faster completion times, lower costs, and the ability to navigate obstacles or difficult terrains.

    The cost of trenchless pipe lining can vary depending on several factors:

    • Pipe Condition: The condition of the existing pipe plays a significant role in determining the cost. Pipes with extensive damage or collapses may require additional preparatory work, such as cleaning or repairs, which can increase the overall cost.
    • Pipe Material and Diameter: The material and diameter of the pipe influence the cost. Different materials may require specific lining materials or techniques, affecting the overall expenses. Larger diameter pipes may require more material and labor, leading to higher costs.
    • Length and Accessibility: The length of the pipe to be lined and its accessibility impact the cost. Longer sections of pipe may require more material and time to complete the lining process. Limited access points or challenging locations may require additional equipment or modifications, increasing the overall cost.
    • Complexity of the Project: Factors such as the presence of bends, junctions, or obstacles can affect the complexity of the project. These factors may require additional planning, equipment, or techniques, resulting in higher costs.
    • Local Regulations and Permits: Permitting requirements and local regulations can add to the overall cost of trenchless pipe lining. Obtaining necessary permits and complying with specific regulations may involve fees or additional administrative expenses.

    It is advisable to consult with a professional plumbing company to assess the specific details of your project and receive an accurate cost estimate for trenchless pipe lining.

    Trenchless pipe lining, also known as cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining, is a method used to rehabilitate existing pipes without the need for extensive excavation. The process typically involves the following steps:

    • Inspection and Cleaning: The first step is to assess the condition of the existing pipe through a thorough inspection using advanced cameras and equipment. Any debris, scale, or obstructions are cleared from the pipe through high-pressure water jetting or mechanical cleaning.
    • Measurement and Preparation: The dimensions of the pipe are measured to determine the length of the liner needed. A flexible liner made of a resin-coated material, such as fiberglass or polyester, is then impregnated with a special epoxy resin.
    • Liner Insertion: The liner is inserted into the pipe using an inversion process or winching system. The liner is carefully positioned to cover the damaged or deteriorated sections of the pipe.
    • Inflation and Curing: Once the liner is in place, it is inflated using air pressure or water pressure, causing it to adhere to the interior walls of the existing pipe. The resin is then cured using heat or ultraviolet light, transforming it into a solid and durable lining.
    • Final Inspection: After the curing process, the newly formed pipe lining is inspected to ensure proper adhesion, integrity, and functionality. The pipe is examined using cameras to confirm the successful completion of the lining process.

    Trenchless pipe lining offers a cost-effective and efficient solution for rehabilitating pipes, extending their lifespan, and restoring their structural integrity without the need for extensive excavation or pipe replacement.

    Great job, TJ from Haynes Plumbing. You've earned my future business, and here's why:I had a low pressure issue in my shower hot water that I tried to solve myself. TJ showed up at the scheduled time, listed to me carefully and tested the valve, which I had already disassembled before he arrived. What was probably a small debris problem in the pipe cleared itself during the testing. Upon putting it back together, the pressure was greatly improved.Although he was at our house for more than half an hour, TJ told me it was no charge because he didn't need to fix anything. Not even a service call charge! Guess who I'll be calling for any future plumbing issues: TJ at Haynes.Hope my experience and review is helpful to you.

    Had to get several estimates before getting a necessary plumbing job. Jr. Johnson got to my house on time, then spent at least an hour checking on the job and answering all of my questions. Gave me a written estimate.Couple of other contractors came by. Checked out the job. Rather than give me an estimate, they said they would "beat any estimate". I told them I wasn't playing that game. Neither gave me an estimate.Jr. Johnson came by on the appointed day and time. Did the job. Gave me a bill exactly the same as the estimate.Haynes' phone number is now in my speed dial for any other plumbing problems.

    TJ helped us with 2 different bathrooms. Great personality, very fast and he was honest and informative through the whole process. Hopefully we don't have any more plumbing issues, but if we did, we would ask for him again!

    Jacob with Haynes Plumbing came out to assess a leak in our hot water tank the same day I called. Within a couple of hours, he had picked up a new hot water heater, and replaced and hauled away the old one. It was such a seamless process. We will use Haynes for all of our plumbing needs!!

    I had contacted Haynes Plumbing due to a shower leak (eventually another leak with the outside hose valve). From getting an appointment set up to the actual day of the appointment it was a smooth and great experience overall for us. TJ was very professional and was so patient with my inquiries and the multiple visits! TJ thank you for taking care of us and thank you Haynes Plumbing for your business!!! You are highly recommended not just for your plumbing expertise but for the amazing customer care you provide.

    I called Haynes Plumbing to give an estimate to replace a 60 gallon hot water tank with a tankless hot water heater. Jacob came on time and gave a great assessment on the current status of the leaking hot water tank and an excellent overview of what would be needed to convert the system to a tankless.After consulting 2 other companies, I felt most confident in the assessment that Jacob provided, plus the estimate was over $2,000 less than the other companies I consulted.I ended up buying the tankless unit (Navien 240) on my own and had Jacob do the install. It took them a lot less time than I thought it would and the owner of the company came out to help with the gas line.I highly recommend Haynes Plumbing to do this type of work, and based on the quality of work I would easily recommend them for any type of plumbing work. The next time I need plumbing work done, I am calling Haynes.

    We recently experienced a fairly large leak at our home. When we noticed the leak I called two other places but everyone hung up on us. I’m glad they did because Haynes plumbing exceeded our expectations! TJ gave us a call right back within 2 minutes of speaking with an operator. TJ is knowledgeable and was friendly throughout the process. We immediately were put into contact with Semper Dry who came out the following day to assit the damages and take immediate action to dry everything out. Then we were put in contact with a contractor who came out today to get an estimate to send to our insurance adjuster. This is by far the smoothes process we have ever experienced. Haynes knows how to ensure families are well taken care especially during major leaks.It made the stress of losing a ceiling and a whole bathroom a lot more manageable than I ever anticipated.I’m so grateful the other companies hung up on us. I doubt we would have had this good of an experience elsewhere. For any future plumbing needs we will call TJ at Haynes.Thank you TJ for your help! We are so grateful for you and everything you did for us.

    Our garbage disposal recently died and we needed it replaced. I’ve had Haynes Plumbing out this past year for some inside and outside plumbing issues and they have always been terrific so of course I gave them a call. The scheduler got back to me right away to set up and appointment. I was happy to see Junior at my door to replace the disposal. Junior has come in the past on a couple major issues and he is always friendly, efficient and gets the job done with the utmost care and professionalism. When I need a plumber, I will always call Haynes. Thanks Junior! John Crone
