Line Stopping


SBI Tapping's expert line stopping techniques bypass and isolate specific sections of your distribution system for repairs and or replacement of valves, pipe and hydrants.  Flow stoppage can be accomplished very quickly and without main shutdowns or even interruption of service.

Line stopping is the process of stopping flow through a section of piping. This allows for temporary shutoff and flow control to allow for pipe maintenance. The advantage of our process is that we are able to bypass the maintenance area and are able to keep your services running without interruption.

Line stops are performed on carbon steel, galvanized steel, stainless steel, brass, copper, cast iron, ductile iron, transite/ACP, PVC, concrete cylinder pipe and more.

We use a unique system for our line stopping as shown in the diagram below:
