Tapping and Line Stoppingrservices2020-04-05T12:11:34-07:00
Line stopping is a process that involves cutting into a pipe and inserting a plug to isolate a specific portion of a water main.
Line Stops can be accomplished in multiple configurations including:
Single – working in conjunction with another valve
Double – two plugs installed on each side of the area of pipe to be isolated
Use of Line Stops Greatly Reduce:
The amount of water main isolated
The number of customers affected
The amount of lost water
The planning and cost associated with scheduled shut down
