Trenchless Pipe Replacement
Replace pipe underground without trenching, that’s unheard of, until now. Fred Hill Mechanical offers sewer, water, and gas pipe replacement without digging a long trench. Please see the following information and visit our links.
Explanation of Trench-less Technology
Pits are dug at both ends of the line and new piping is hydraulically pulled through the bad pipe breaking it away and replacing it with new. Lines can even be installed where none were before without disturbing the ground above.
Replace that broken or collapsed line without digging up the parking lot or disturbing mature landscaping. We pull a complete new line with new material making this option more appealing than major excavations or lining a bad pipe.

Grease & Other Interceptor Installation
Interceptors are required to prevent the introduction of substances that can cause drainage and treatment problems from entering the municipal system. Fred Hill Mechanical has experienced technicians to diagnose, recommend, and facilitate solutions to Interceptor related problems.
Installation and maintenance are critical when it comes to Grease Traps. Fred Hill Mechanical can identify and remedy any problems that may arise from reconfiguration to maintenance programs.
Area drains, carwashes, dock drains, etc., should drain into a sand trap. Solids are distributed to the bottom of the trap while the liquid will flow off at the top. We at Fred Hill Mechanical understand the configuration and operation of these traps and provide you with service requirements you will need to keep them functioning properly.
Oil like grease will rise to the top of water and therefore the traps are designed to take the water away from the middle of the trap to leave the oil floating and the solids at the bottom. These traps are used in garages and manufacturing facilities. Fred Hill Mechanical has experience with these systems and can make the necessary repairs and maintenance recommendations to keep them operating properly.
Commercial laundries and Laundry Mats must have some type of Lint Interceptor to prevent the debris from reaching the city sewer. Maintaining and cleaning of the trap and drain line is essential to good operation. Fred Hill Mechanical can design a program to maintain your trap in good working order.
Many municipalities are now requiring monitoring wells on the down stream side of an Interceptor. Proper maintenance and installation of these monitoring wells is just as important as the maintenance of the Interceptor. High reading or false high reading from dirty wells can produce expensive citations. Fred Hill Mechanical wants to minimize your exposure by putting together a program to maintain your Interceptor and Monitoring Station needs.
Pump Repair & Installation
Pumps are an integral part of a lot of Commercial and Industrial Plumbing systems. Fred Hill Mechanical has the knowledge and experience to work with all types of pump systems; sewage, sump, fresh water booster, and equipment to name a few.
Removal of ground water and sewage from lower elevations can cause severe damage if the pumps are not operational. Fred Hill Mechanical has the equipment to service and install sump pump systems to keep you operational and dry.
In design and construction the city sewers may not always be accessible by gravity flow. For those situations a sewage lift station is required. Fred Hill Mechanical can maintain and service these systems with experienced trained technicians and keep you flowing.
Municipal water pressure is adequate for most installations up to 4 stories. When you construct buildings in excess of this potable water must be pushed to the top by means of a pump system. Understanding the science and technology associated with this procedure is part of what Fred Hill Mechanical can provide to you.
