Underground Commercial Water Line Repairs in Lexington
The costs can add up quickly when an underground water supply pipe bursts. Whether it’s wasted water or downtime for your business, every moment matters, and delays can be costly.
How do you know when an underground water pipe bursts? Some things to watch out for are:
- Pooling water or soggy soil on your property when it hasn’t rained
- A sudden rise in your water bill
- Low water pressure
- Discolored water
If you suspect you have a water leak, call Fayette for our water leak detection services in Lexington. Once we determine that there is a leak to be fixed, the next step is to find out the extent of the damage and where that damage is.
Once our expert plumbers have a general idea of where the leak might be located, we use a special flexible fiber-optic camera and feed that through the water line so we can perform a video pipe inspection.
Speedy Underground Water Line Repairs
Once we have confirmed the precise extent and location of the water leak with a video pipe inspection, we can determine exactly which sections need to be repaired or replaced. In some cases, we can pull a sleeve up through the pipe and perform a trenchless water line repair. A sleeve is pulled through the damaged section and then hardened to seal out any damage. This method can be preferable because it does not involve excavation.
Sometimes, the damage is significant enough that a partial pipe replacement is the better option. Because we have identified the exact location of the problem with the video inspection and other special equipment, we can dig at the precise location and minimize disruption to your property.

If your water line is older or has a lot of extensive damage, it may be best to go ahead and replace the entire pipeline to future-proof it from problems for the next few decades.
