Commercial Wet Tapping Services

Wet & Hot Tap Services

Industrial Hot Tap

Wet tapping is the process of cutting and connecting new pipe to an existing pipe or pressure main without interruption of service. A hot tap is performed while the existing main is under pressure; the hot tap provides the branch connection with no loss of water, no service interruption, and no damage to infrastructure resulting from water main de-pressurization. The terms hot tapping and wet tapping are synonymous, and referred to as TS&V, tap, or wet tap. The main difference between wet tap and hot tap is that a wet tap is performed on pipelines that carry water and sewage, and are usually done in residential or commercial areas.

For commercial and/or industrial wet tap service, Mickie Service Company is the leading provider in the gulf coast region. Our commercial hot tap capabilities provide a branch connection on an existing water main. Customers use our industrial hot tap services for water main extensions, metered lines, commercial fire lines, and offsets.
