(Watch) Doing a Water Line Tap for Meter Install

Field Supervisor Nate Cotton Explains How We Do a Water Line Tap to Install A Water Meter

When you need to tap into an existing water main, you have two options – shut down the system to insert the new tap, or use a live tapping technique, also called hot tapping, to tap into the system while it is still under pressure. Water line “hot tapping” is a safe way to tie into an existing system. It is done by drilling or cutting in the presence of stream while under pressure and enables a construction crew to make a water line connection without having to interrupt service for the area around it.
