What Is a Water Line?
Water lines are important plumbing systems that connect to a complex network of pipes below your home, making them difficult to access and complicated to repair or replace.

Benefits of Trenchless Water Line Replacement
Here are some benefits of trenchless water line replacement:
- Saves Time – The traditional digging method for water line replacement takes substantially longer than it does with newer trenchless technology.
- Saves Money – Completing water line replacement using new trenchless technology is less expensive because structural modification (like taking down walls) is not required. Minimal digging and structural modification also reduce clean-up costs.
- Less Intrusive – With newer trenchless water line replacement technology, there is less digging occurring on your property. With our new technology, landscaping is not required.
- Environmentally Friendly – The new trenchless technology eliminates the need to dig up the earth and affect plant life. The new technology results in a few small holes that do not require a clean-up process.

Water Line FAQs
Here are some common questions about water lines our team at DYZ Plumbing has heard, along with answers from our experts.
How deep is the main water line buried?
In most municipalities, the water line is buried at least 36 inches deep. It’s possible that the water line will be deeper, but 36 inches is the minimum for the Texas building code. This helps put it below the frost line to keep it protected from freezing in the winter.
Who is responsible for the water pipe to a house?
Homeowners own the home as well as the pipes that bring water to those homes. If your main water line clogs, breaks, or leaks, it is your responsibility as the home’s owner to repair it. This can seem unfair, but it is the way the law divvies out the responsibility for this vital system.
Where is the main water line located?
To locate your main water line, first, find the water meter or well. Then, find the point where the water line enters your home. The main water line will connect the water meter or well to the entrance to your home, running underground between these two points.
Can a gas line and a water line be in the same trench?
Building codes related to plumbing lines vary from one location to the next, but in many cities, it is possible to run the gas line and water line in the same trench. Electric lines do pose a risk with both gas and electric lines nearby, so proper separation must be maintained. Putting more than one line in one trench is known as a joint trench.
