A property management company called ASAP Drain Guys and Plumbing because of a broken 2″ copper water main line to 16 units needed to be repaired.
ASAP needed to shut off the water to several buildings to prevent back pressure. They then dug down 3 feet and exposed the water leak on the transition from the copper pipe to the PVC pipe.
The techs then cut out a 6 foot section of the 3″ copper pipe and installed a 2″ isolation valve. The glue was then allowed to dry for approximately one hour. The water was then gradually turned back on. They flushed water and air out. The techs also checked for leaks but there are none at this time.
