  • Common Types of Utility Lines that Could Be Hiding Under Your Yard

    Are you in the process of installing a new fence or digging up some ground for a garden? If so, you should exercise caution because there are likely water mains , natural gas pipes, and other utility lines buried underneath the ground on your property. Accidentally striking any of these utility lines could lead to property damage, injury, and other serious problems. For more information on the common types of utility lines that could be right under your nose, keep reading below:

    Electrical Lines
    While electrical lines are usually connected to above-ground power poles, they are sometimes buried underneath the ground as well. Normally, these utility lines are red in color and are installed 18 to 24 inches below the surface of the soil. Particular caution should be exercised when digging around these lines, since striking one of them could cause a severe power outage, or in a worst-case scenario, result in electrocution.

    Plumbing Lines
    Underground plumbing lines are usually very effective at transporting water to a house for years of uninterrupted service. However, if plumbing pipes are struck by a pickaxe or shovel, they can easily start leaking, flooding a backyard and causing an extensive amount of water damage to the property. To avoid these issues, you should contact a professional plumbing service. They will be able to find the exact location of your plumbing lines using sophisticated pipe-finding technology, allowing you to dig in your yard safely.

    Natural Gas Pipes
    Many people in the Arlington area use natural gas in their homes. If you are one of them, you will need your plumber to point out the location of gas piping on your property before starting your project. Knowing where your gas lines are will prevent you from puncturing them while digging and causing a fire hazard.

    At All Plumbing, Inc., we can locate your outdoor water pipes and underground gas lines. So whether you are planning an outdoor project or are hoping to have new piping installed, we can assist you. Call our office in Arlington today at (703) 525-7973.
