AAA Plumbing


AAA Plumbing realizes that when major problems occur with water or sewer service lines, the last thing you need is the worry of restoring your landscaped yard after the problem has been corrected. That is why AAA Plumbing offers low intrusion solutions to water line and sewer line replacement or restoration, which also saves you money!

Water lines

Many water service lines in Rapid City and the surrounding area are made of Polybutylene piping. This piping has been proven to break down on a molecular level when it comes in contact with chlorinated water. It is not a matter of “if” this type of pipe is going to leak but “when”. In keeping with our philosophy to keep disruption and costs as low as possible, we implement a “pull” procedure in which:
  1. minimizes the excavation spot required to access the water line in the yard
  2. minimizes the access area inside the home
  3. a new copper water line is pulled through the existing polybutylene water line, making this process possible

Although there are some conditions that limit the success of this type of technique, the occasional extra costs to make the project successful are typically minimal in relation to the open trench replacement costs outside the home and the concrete removal costs inside the home.

The common timetable for polybutylene piping failure is between 20 to 25 years. Unfortunately, this type of pipe was also used as household distribution pipe which has the same characteristics. Contact us for a free in-home estimate.
