WATER SERVICE: If you have received a high water usage bill from your municipality this typically indicates you have a ruptured water main. Water may not surface in your yard or around your home making this repair difficult to locate often resulting in a new water service installation. Vortech on average completes two water service replacements each week often referred by the municipalities to our clients. Existing water service materials include copper, galvanized or poly piping. Not all two water service installations are alike. We carefully plan the best route from the property lime meter box and into the home using both hand and machine dig as well one of our certified plumbers to provide all final connections. BC one calls are always mandatory to ensure overhead and underground service locations prior to excavation.
SEWER MAINS: from a home or building to a municipal connection or septic system this “transfer pipe” may require repair or replacement due to compressed piping, root intrusion, or pipe sperations. Using our pipe camera/transmitter technology we can identify problem areas and proceed with “spot digs” minimizing yard disruption or complete an entire replacement. We provide many sewer line repairs and replacements annually for our clients. If you notice hesitation with flushing toilets or poor running sinks this may be the start of a sewer back up and should be inspected to avoid a sewer flood/back up.
STORM MAINS: Storm mains gather water from your roof and the perimeter drainage system and then transfer water to a ditch or municipal service. Like a sewer main over time there may be settled areas, root intrusion or pipe separations resulting in storm water passage restrictions. This can and often does result in flooded basements or crawl spaces of one’s home. Annual pipe camera inspections are always recommended with older systems to ensure the storm water system is free of obstruction and operating well.
Working for local municipalities as well residential and commercial clients we have become a leading local provider of these services. With a full line of excavators for different applications as well as state of the art equipment and certified staff, Vortech delivers solutions.
