What is a Water Line or Water Main Tap?

August 29, 2012

harris_logo_good_2Water main tapping allows you to connect new services to an existing line without shutting down the entire system in your area. Like all our services, a water line tap allows work to be performed on a single home while the rest of the block continues to function.

Taps allow you to connect to the city water lines and expand your water main size, with no outages. A tap enables you to install new fire hydrants, bypass specified areas of construction or work on a single home without disturbing running water in any nearby homes.

The average homeowner believes if they increase the size of the pipe coming off of the city water main they will resolve all water pressure issues they may have experienced. It is the size of your tap that controls the actual volume and pressure of the water running in your house. New taps are installed by the NYC DEP after the proper permits are obtained by a NYC licensed plumber.

If you have any questions regarding your tap or water pressure give us a call at 1-718-280-9525 or complete our Web application for immediate response
