A water service is the term used to describe the installation of a new pipe leaving your meter box or well and entering into your home. The first step to take when having a new water service put in is to schedule an appointment for an estimate. We will be able to determine whether or not there is a leak on your current water service and let you know what the cost would be to run a new line.
We can install a water services for any yard, any size. We will bore underneath sidewalk and driveways and carefully hand dig around all utilities. When we perform this work, you can choose between two different piping options.
Uponor Aquapex® is the premier pipe we use for the water service we run. This pipe comes backed with a 25 Year Manufacturer Warranty when installed by a certified installer. Each plumber at HIS Plumber has taken the Uponor Certification Class which allows us to offer this warranty. Aquapex® is a very high quality pipe that offers a fantastic fitting system. The fittings are inserted into the pipe via expanding the pipe with a specialty tool. The pipe then contracts over the fittings. Due to the nature of the pipe, it is always attempting to revert to its original form before being expanded. This means it is always making a stronger seal on the fitting.
In addition to the 25 Year Manufacturer Warranty, we proudly offer a 3 Year Parts and Labor Warranty to any Water Service we install with Aquapex® piping.
If you prefer, we do offer Polyethylene Pipe for any 3/4″ water service installation. Polyethylene is our economy option in that the piping itself is cheaper than the Aquapex alternative. It is a lower quality pipe than Aquapex® but is still a good option for someone who may be on a tighter budget. This pipe does not come back with a manufacturer warranty. However, we will provide a 1 Year Parts and Labor Warranty to any water service we install with Polyethylene pipe.
This pipe offers many of the same features that Aquapex® offers including seamless installs, flexibility, and the ability to protect against freezing. The biggest disadvantage of Polyethylene is its fitting system. Unlike the superior design of Aquapex®, it will not expand and must be used with a Push Connect System. These fittings do have a higher fail rate over time as they do not hold as strongly to the pipe and are susceptible to the acids in the ground. Something to consider during your budgeting.
