Your Specialists in Non-Intrusive Lead Water Pipe Replacement
Upgrade to Modern MDPE Pipes with State-of-the-Art Moling Technology
At Lanes Mains, we are experts in the non-intrusive replacement of lead water pipes with modern MDPE (Medium-density polyethylene) pipes. Using the latest state-of-the-art moling technology, we ensure a seamless transition from old iron pipes to upgraded MDPE pipework.
Why Upgrade to MDPE Pipes?
As time passes, lead pipes, like most metals, tend to corrode. This corrosion necessitates the need for an upgrade to new MDPE pipes. With our moling technology, we create a trenchless path for your new water supply, minimizing disruption and leaving no evidence of the procedure.
The Advantages of Our Moling Technique
Our non-intrusive moling technique involves creating underground tunnels from one small hole to the property. Once the replacement is complete, we backfill the hole, leaving no trace of the procedure and causing minimal disruption to your property. This cutting-edge method allows for efficient lead pipe replacement without the need for extensive excavation.
Why Replace Lead Pipes?
Lead pipes were commonly used in properties built before the 1960s. Over time, these pipes deteriorate, and even with preventative measures taken by water companies, small traces of lead can still enter the water supply. To ensure the safety of your water and comply with modern standards, lead replacement schemes have been introduced. Drinking water from lead pipes is not recommended, making it essential to upgrade to safer alternatives.
Improved Water Flow and Pressure
Apart from health concerns, older lead pipes often have restricted water flow, leading to lower water pressure due to their smaller dimensions. By replacing lead pipes with modern MDPE pipes, you can enjoy improved water flow and adequate water pressure in your property.
