At M&B Services, we’re the experts. We frequently repair commercial water lines, water mains, and other commercial water services. We have several different ways that we can repair including trenchless methods.
The link that connects your business to the water supply is your link to business. If you don’t have potable water in your business for cooking, cleaning, drinking, washing, or flushing, you’re going to be in serious trouble. Regardless of your business name, the water service that runs from the inside of your business connecting it to the main pigtail for the county water meter is your lifeline.
This water main has specific requirements for installation including being installed at a depth of at least 30 inches to prevent it from being near the frost line. This helps to prevent freezing of the water lines.
Existing pipes are usually comprised of copper, a high-density polyethylene or HDPE, galvanized steel, ductile iron, or even polybutylene or more commonly called poly-blue. Copper HDPE or ductile iron have both proven themselves to be a reliable pipe for such purposes.
Galvanized piping, which isn’t used any longer, can be expected to last from approximately 50 to 70 years, unfortunately, it also tends to deteriorate over the course of time thus resulting in a reduced water pressure or flow rate.
Polybutylene piping has shown itself to be a failure and will have to be replaced frequently. You can read more on Polybutylene Pipe Replacement.
Regardless of the kind of pipe that brings water to your business, if it fails, you will want to have repairs done immediately. Water may be bubbling up from the source and seeping into your business, even if you don’t see any water this may still be happening. Check your water bill, did it just soar sky-high? If so, this is likely what’s happening. That’s when you need to call us. We’ll come to your place of business and give you a free estimate of what the repairs would cost and we can then replace your commercial water service.
In the Baltimore and the Annapolis Metro area, we specialize in commercial water service repairs. All of our technicians are highly-skilled and trained operators and mechanics that use the latest technological advances to reduce intrusion into your property. We also have trenchless technology for those who have concrete or asphalt and wish to prevent any disturbances to their property. Our technology can save you a lot of money by reducing the amount of time it takes to excavate and repair landscaping and other repairs that are required post-job.
Such Technologies Include The Following:
Trenchless Missiles: These shoot underneath the driveway, parking area, and concrete pads. This reduces the property damage.
Pulling Cables: We use these to pull new water services through the existing service.
Excavating Machines: We offer top of the line Case 580SL Backhoes for our larger jobs and we use a Case CX-36 Mini for smaller jobs or those that are in tighter locations.
The method we use to repair your water will be dependent upon the situation. Each job is different and we approach each job with a unique approach that is tailored to each individual location. We may use trenchless, or we may have to dig a trench. It’s all dependent upon your special requirements. We use pulling vables when possible to simply pull the new services through the existing service.
It’s also possible that we’ll use the boring missile and go underneath of obstacles including driveways or other obstacles such as steps or porches. We strive to reduce damage to your hardscape, landscape, sidewalks, building structure, or driveways.
