There are many trenchless methods Thuro Inc. uses to replace water service lines. The lines can be pulled, directionally drilled, or added on to pipe burst during a replacement of the sewer pipe, Thuro has the equipment and expertise to get your water service fixed fast.

Trenchless Technology: Tree and lawn friendly

Water line pulling and other trenchless technologies offer full replacement without digging up yards so decks, trees, and gardens look just as great as they did before.

Unlike some more traditional methods of pipe replacement, pipe bursting utilizes fused joints which completely eliminates potential root issues so you can enjoy a lifetime of trouble-free operation.

Indemnified, bonded, insured, and qualified

Unlike many other contractors, Thuro is an indemnified contractor with the City of Calgary. Why is it so important that your pipe bursting contractor is indemnified? Not only can Thuro fix the sanitary service up to your property line, we can also legally replace water service all the way to the main, fixing the entire line all at once.

Water line Pulling

Thuro Inc. uses a water line splitter to pull new water service lines in place of the existing service. This equipment is designed for ¾”-1” water service lines. A water line pull is a full replacement of the existing service line that requires open-end pipe access at either end (access pit). A 3/8” aircraft cable is pulled through the host pipe and then a water line splitting head is attached and pulled back through the line using an excavator. During the splitting process the existing service line is split apart and a new PEX pipe is pulled into place behind the splitting head.

  • 1” Pex
  • Up to 100ft
  • Can upsize from ¾” to 1”
  • Easily replaces most materials (copper,
  • Minimum lifespan 50-years

Method

  • A cable is pushed through the existing service
  • Measurements of the length are taken to determine the appropriate length of PEX waterline needed
  • The slitting head with the new PEX pipe attached is pulled through the existing pipe using an excavator
  • Once pulled into place the water line is ready to be re-connected and put back into service

The following are limitations for Water line pulling:

  • Corroded lines that are unable to get the cable through
  • Galvanized pipe
