In 2013, Mickie Service added team members with extensive expertise in the mechanical/industrial/process market segment - complementing our historical water service capabilities. While the fundamental principles of the services are the same - there is a substantial difference in the set-up and execution of a mechanical job. Our team is highly experienced in the requirements to make these jobs successful. Some of the factors that make mechanical implementations more complex are:
- Wide Temperature Range
- Higher Pressures
- "No Leak" requirements
- Installing on scaffolding or cranes
- Very limited room for equipment
- Off-Peak work hours
With these complicating factors accounted for - we offer our core water main services:
- Hot Tapping
- Line Stopping
- Valve Insertion
Our commitment to safety, innovation and efficiency has given Mickie Service a strong reputation as a leader in the local civil construction industry, able to tackle a wide range of projects. Contact our responsive, highly experienced and bilingual team of experts to manage your next project.

What is Mechanical Line Stopping?
Ideal for temporary or permanent work to be completed on pressurized piping systems, Mickie Service Company’s mechanical pipe plugs allow for isolated repairs or regular maintenance and modifications to be completed without any interruption to process flow or production or a shutdown.
Our well-maintained equipment and experienced technicians make it possible to safely and efficiently place mechanical pipe plugs or create a bypass for emergency situations and scheduled stopping of a liquid or gas flow in a pipeline at full operating pressure.
