Cable and Wire Repair
THE LEADER IN UNDERGROUND CONTRACTING
In the event that an underground cable or pipe does fail, it will need to be repaired. We can identify, locate and repair almost any cable fault or failure. For low and line voltage wires we can locate the line and pinpoint the exact location of the problem. We can then provide you with a price for excavating and repairing the damaged wire. For high and medium voltage wiring we can test the wire using a megohm tester and even use destructive testing such as a “hi-pot”. This test sends a high voltage pulse across a known bad conductor which will burn through bad spots in the wires insulation. This pulse or “thump” as it’s called can then be located using a special locator or sometimes even through your feet to identify the failure’s location. Once identified, we can repair or replace your problem wire.
