Tapping

Hot, wet, and even dry tapping is the method of making a new branch connection to the existing main water or wastewater pipe without interrupting service on that pipe. In other words, cutting off residential, commercial, and industrial water or sewer lines is not completely necessary.

Peak Tapping Solutions’ tapping machine is mounted to the pressurized water or wastewater pipe and advanced using a carbide cutter and a pilot bit with a retaining clip that catches the “coupon” or cut section. The cutter and “coupon” are retracted, and the tapped valve is closed. Peak Tapping can offer full-service tapping solutions with trained and fully certified technicians.

In addition, we utilize technology that allows you to see our work anywhere in almost real time with any device. We capture a picture of the coupon and upload it to your company's own portal.

Valve Insertion

Valve insertion is the method of installing a permanent valve on existing main water without interrupting service on that pipe. The reason we do a valve insertion is to eliminate the need to turn off the water to a much larger part of the water system.

Peak Tapping Solutions certified technicians install valves for many reasons, but often when existing valves are inoperable. Sometimes valves cannot be located, are not functional, or have not been installed correctly.

In addition, we utilize technology that allows you to see our work anywhere in almost real time with any device. We capture a picture of the coupon, air pressure, and any other component of the project, then upload it to your company's own portal. Weather you're at home, in the office, or across the globe, you can see that Peak Tapping is working for you.

  • We do not have to interrupt the water system or disrupt water services to a community.
  • This work can be performed in off-hours.
  • We install most valves within about 45 minutes or less in most cases.
  • This can be done in lieu of cutting in a water main which provides a huge safety element.
  • We can place one for an emergency leak.
  • Reduces the risk of water contamination.
  • Reduces the amount of digging around the pipe for the valve installation.
  • Saves time and money due to the safety conditions that a valve can be installed.
