Line Stopping

Line Stopping by Municipal Pipe Services

Our professional line stopping techniques bypass and isolate specific sections of your distribution system for repairs and replacement of pipe, valves, and hydrants. The stopping of the flow can be accomplished in minutes, without main shutdowns or interruptions of service.

The Line Stopping Process

Line stopping is the process of blocking flow through a segment of piping, which allows for temporary shut-off and flow control, enabling pipe maintenance. We use a unique system at Municipal Pipe Services for our line stopping and are able to perform line stops on different pipe types such as:

  • Brass
  • C900
  • C909
  • Carbon Steel
  • Cast Iron
  • Concrete cylinder pipe
  • Copper
  • Ductile Iron
  • Galvanized Steel
  • HDPE
  • PVC
  • Stainless Steel
  • Transite/ACP and more
