: Hi,
: A plumber is putting in new pipe from our house to our sidewalk but he is only digging 2 holes: one close to the house and one close to the sidewalk. I asked how he can lay pipe by only digging two holes with lawn still in the middle. I thought that they would have to dig one really long trench from the house to the sidewalk and he said they will "torpedo" it. what does that mean? and how can they replace the old pipe if there is a big section still underground and not dug up?

There is a machine you can rent or "own" that acts like a "mole". It uses an air compressor to punch through the dirt in a straight line. when it's pulled back, you can pull the new pipe back through. It's a nice way to do it. Terry
