About Us

In 1984, Dennis Grice, while working for a water utility in Oregon, developed a tool for replacing poly water service lines. The news got out by word of mouth and other utilities found a use for the tool.

The GRICE PIPE REPLACEMENT TOOL was first manufactured in 1986. Because of the ingenuity of water crews, contractors, and plumbers across the nation, the GRICE PIPE REPLACEMENT TOOL is now a standard way of replacing poly, galvanized, lead, and copper water services.


About the Tool

Never cut a street again!

You may never have to cut across a street or driveway to replace a leaking water service again. Nor will you have to dig out both sides to push another service across. Crews are replacing 3/4" and 1" water services in just 1-1/2 hours using the GRICE PIPE REPLACEMENT TOOL with cost savings of thousands of dollars.

This tool is designed to split poly-pipe while pulling a new service line at the same time. Additionally, with the help of service crews, the GRICE PIPE REPLACEMENT TOOL is being used to replace galvanized, lead, copper, and plastic pipe.

The GRICE PIPE REPLACEMENT TOOL is a one-piece casting made of 440 stainless steel. The cable is 3/8" airplane cable rated at 14,000 PSI.

As a service to our customers, we make available airplane cable. Each cable is rated for 14,000 lbs. on a straight pull. Each spool of cable is tested by the manufacturer prior to its being made into 50', 75' and 100' lengths. However, each angle or bend that occurs decreases that rate substantially. These cables are not guaranteed against breakage. We recommend that a spare cable be kept as a backup.

We also make available a Cable Grip. This grip has been proven to be adequate for most service replacements and is also not guaranteed against breakage.

As a reminder, we caution against bending the cable more than 45 degrees or severe jerking of the cable and cable grip. A steady, powerful pull is recommended.


Who Is Using It

Currently, over 5,000 Water Utilities across the U.S. and Canada are using the GRICE PIPE REPLACEMENT TOOL. Detroit, Michigan's Water Department Supervisor says: "We have used the tool to replace over 4,000 lead and galvanized services from 5/8" to 2" and as long as 55' in length and it works great." New Jersey's Water Departments think it's the best tool in the water industry today. And water departments throughout the country have saved thousands of dollars with its use.

Contractors across the nation are using the GRICE PIPE REPLACEMENT TOOL when completing jobs for public and private water departments.

The GRICE PIPE REPLACEMENT TOOL is fast becoming a standard tool for Plumbers. Not only can they avoid having to dig or remove concrete or landscaping, but they can bid less, have greater profits and finish a job sooner than in the past.
