HOW WE DO IT
Moling technology enables the precision drilling of boreholes instead of expensive excavations when creating optimised channels for water pipelines. The impact on the local environment is minimized which in turn guarantees a smaller local footprint with less disturbance to the environment.
We create a streamlined water supply from the stop tap right to the interior system of the house in all our domestic water installations. In the provision of this service, we ensure the integration of all applicable government regulations and standards thereby ensuring clean, clear, and drinkable tap water.
We provide a water mains replacement service that extends from correctly identifying your requirements after a site examination to the excavation, replacement, connection and commissioning of the new water mains.
A Hydrosure specialist will undertake a site visit to establish your required needs where after a detailed solution will be presented for your approval. After the acceptance of our proposal, the work will immediately commence. We guarantee that all services will be fully integrated into the shortest time span to ensure the best results.
Upon completion of the project in accordance with the proposed solution. Hydrosure, as one of the UK’s foremost certified contractors pride itself in its excellent track record of being able to deliver water main installations that are durable, reliable and eco-friendly.
HOW IT WORKS
Horizontal boreholes between two excavated holes are dug using pneumatic moling units, that displace the soil in front of them with powerful, repeated hammerings. Two square holes of approximately 2 metres deep are dug with one the starting hole through which the moling unit is inserted, the other hole serves as the exit hole through which the mole will resurface. Once the mole has completed the established route the water main is pulled through.
The slightly invasive method ensures a reduction in labour and equipment costs with minimal disturbance of the environment and surrounding areas. It is highly suited for the installation of water mains that requires boring underneath driveways, lawns, ditches or other obstacles.
Moling has numerous benefits that include environmental protection, requiring minimal excavations and disturbances with no disruption to service infrastructure or services that ensures quick installation times.
Using the moling technique when replacing a water main installation ensures a more cost-effective and efficient service when compared with excavating the area for installation. This also ensures that less time is needed for the installation.
SOIL TYPES SUITABLE FOR MOLING
Moling procedures are affected by the soil type and are best performed in certain types of soil like sand, clay, fine and coarse gravel, and silt. Other soil types can be damaging to the equipment and the landscape.
Industry standards are key when we plan and execute all water mains replacement Ashington procedures. Our aim is to deliver an optimised result for our clients when we deliver the main water line replacement or any additional services.
All our water pipe replacement projects involve site surveys and consultancy from our experts to provide the best solutions. Whatever your requirement, lead pipe or different water main pipe replacement, Hydrosure is the key to success.
When replacing the mains water supply pipe a team of professional engineers equipped with high-tech equipment is needed to deliver the best pipe replacement solutions. Hydrosure always exceeds their client’s high expectations.
