Trenching for new water service line

We are also familiar with what Seattle Public Utilities and other water districts want for water service lines from the meter to the house, and we can install water service lines from the meter to the stub out of your house very cost-effectively.

Sewer and Utility

            When your sewer doesn't work, it usually makes for a bad day.  We specialize in sewers that are trenched into place, not trenchless systems.  There are advantages to trenchless sewer and sewer relining, but there are also some disadvantages that most trenchless sewer contractors won't talk about.  The biggest reason to have your sewer relined or pulled through with a trenchless system is to avoid damaging the landscaping and concrete. The biggest reason not to have it relined is that it doesn't address any dips and settling that may have occurred in the sewer line, and if there are any connections to your sewer that you weren't aware of, they get blocked by the relining process.

            Having a sewer trenched into place ensures that everything is hooked up exactly the way you want it to be, and it allows us to identify and resolve any settling or sink hole issues (from the old sewer).  Often times it is cheaper to have a new sewer installed rather than to reline an old sewer.  Usually the only reason a new sewer becomes more expensive is due to the landscaping and concrete that need to be replaced after trenching through your yard. 

           We have lots experience obtaining side sewer permits within the City of Seattle and installing sewers in Seattle. We are familiar with the code in Seattle, the inspectors, and Seattle specific code (as it relates to sewer installation).  Give us a call and let Mike go over what we can do for you to make your sewer work correctly and to put your yard back together afterward.





This sewer needed to be repaired in an area where it failed.

This is the clean out for a new sewer system we installed.  This system included footing drains, tight lines (gutter drains), and a cistern to meet City of Seattle code for slowing the rate at which storm water enters into the sewer.

Here we have examples of footing drains along a basement foundation wall.  These footing drains will go into a catch basin and then into the sewer to keep the basement dry.  In the second picture you can see the PVC SDR35 pipe has a sock over it, which is inside one layer of filter fabric with drain rock, and then it is wrapped in a second layer of filter fabric.  It is relatively inexpensive to do the job right the first time.  We pride ourselves on using the right materials, doing the job right, and having it work correctly.... The first time.

Here we have tight lines going into a catch basin to help remove sediment before they go into the sewer.

Here are a couple examples of tight lines during installation.
