Recently we completed a residential pipe patching job in 4 hours. The homeowner was happy that there was very little digging (just a small pit in his yard) and that the water would be back on in hours not days.
The compromised pipe was 20ft out from the house, under a newly paved sidewalk. The town of Gorham would have imposed a large fine for digging up the sidewalk. This is why pipe patching is becoming so popular. Very little digging…And no digging in the street.
Here is a video of pipe patching, before and after.
