HOW WE DO IT
We use moling technology to precisely drill boreholes. It's how we create optimised channels for water pipelines without requiring extensive and costly excavations. Also, it guarantees a small footprint to the local setting and minimises environmental disturbance.
For domestic water mains installations, we create a streamlined water supply from the stop tap at the edge of your house up to the interior system. We integrate all governmental standards and regulations throughout our services to provide clean, clear and drinkable tap water.
Our water mains replacement services include site examinations, correct identification of your requirements, excavation, replacement of the water main, connection and commissioning.
A Hydrosure specialist will visit your site and analyse your requirements. We'll provide an outline of the solution and upon your agreement, we'll start the works immediately. We guarantee fully integrated services for the best results, in the shortest time span.
Upon completion of the project, we'll deliver the works accordingly. Hydrosure is one of UK's leading certified contractors with a top-quality track record in providing reliable, durable and eco-friendly water main installations.
HOW IT WORKS
We use powerful pneumatic moling units which dig horizontal boreholes between excavations. They displace the soil in front of them using repeated hammering. We manually dig a square hole about 2 meters deep. Also, we'll dig a destination hole through which the mole will re-surface. After the mole passes through the established route, we can easily pull the water main through.
Not only does this method reduce equipment and labour costs but it minimises any disturbances to the surroundings. It's a slightly invasive water main installation method suitable for boring under obstacles, driveways, lawns or ditches.
The benefits of moling include the protection of the environment, minimal excavations and disturbances requirements, quick installation times and no disruption of surface infrastructure or services.
By using the moling technique we can decrease the time to replace a water main installation. We can provide an efficient and cost-effective installation service than what an excavation allows.
SOIL TYPES SUITABLE FOR MOLING
Successful moling procedures require certain types of soil. Each type of ground composition has a certain effect on the process. So, we perform moling in soils comprising clay, sand, fine gravel, coarse gravel, and silt. Other types of soils can damage the equipment but also the landscape.
We carefully plan and execute all water mains replacement procedures under the industry standards. We deliver main water line replacement projects and additional services to guarantee an optimised result for our clients. Any water pipe replacement project involves a site survey, consultancy from our experts and providing you with the best solutions. Whether you require a lead pipe replacement or a different water main pipe replacement, Hydrosure is the key.
