Jay’s Plumbing is
Non-invasive, Trenchless Bypass Plumbing
Starting in 1958, homes were built in such a way that the manifold water routing system was above ground, thus minimizing if not eliminating trenching inside your home on your property. By 1974, all homes were built with water manifolds above the ground.
Homes with Post Tension Concrete design must not be trenched because it weakens the foundation of the house. By the Construction Code, the concrete foundation shall not be cut or trenched under any circumstance. The Code implies the use of non-invasive by-pass plumbing to repair the waterline leakage under the concrete foundation.
When trenching is performed, the concrete is no longer one piece. Rather, they are separate pieces patched together. Moisture from condensation from the pipes can see up the lines of tiny cracks where the pieces of concrete meet and can rise to your floor. Therefore, you should no longer have wood flooring over that trenched area. Also, what needs to be concerned is the plastic layer that is under the concrete when your house was first built. When trenching is performed inside your home, the conventional plumbers will tear up the plastic and it will be difficult, if not impossible, to replace or fix the property.
With conventional trenching techniques, there is no definite method to verify if the same fixed pipe is leaking again even though you retrench the same area. If you cannot prove that the leak is due to the previously fixed pipe, you will be responsible for the cost of trenching and patching. In addition, the impact and vibration from trenching can damage the nearby pipes.
Jay’s non-invasive plumbing is truly a trenchless by-passing technique. It minimizes the damage to your home by linking and re-routing the pipes through your walls and ceilings.
Once the by-pass plumbing is done, you could save up to 50% on cost for other repairs on the same hot or cold water lines.
