Underground Wire Repair

IMG_3480We provide underground wire locating and repair service with our state of the art equipment made by 3M™ Dynatel™ . This allows us to trace underground wires and cables to find the damage or break (ground faults). We have the ability to pinpoint the location of the damage to the wire. Once the broken wire is located it can be repaired instead of being replaced. With a proper underground splice the repair will last the life of the cable. We use top quality splice kits to ensure a trouble free repair. When the repair is complete we test the wire to ensure that the insulation is in good condition.

Wire after repair

The benefits of repairing of a wire over replacing it include:

  • Cost of repairing the wire can be significantly less than the cost of replacing it.
  • Only the area above the break will need to be dug up for the repair. This will reduce or eliminate damage to landscaping and parking-lots/driveways.
  • The repair can usually be completed in a few hours.
