HOW WE DO IT
We drill precise boreholes with the use of moling technology that enables us to do away with costly and extensive excavations when we create optimised water pipeline channels. An added benefit is the lower incidence of environmental disturbance and the guaranteed smaller local footprint.
Domestic water installations are serviced with a streamlined water supply that starts at the stop tap of your house all the way to the interior system. Clean, drinkable, and crystal clear tap water are provided with the integration off all relevant and applicable standards and regulations prescribed by the government.
We offer an inclusive water mains replacement service with site examinations, accurate identification of your requirements, excavation, replacement and connection of the water main and commissioning.
After a site visit by a Hydrosure specialist who analysed your requirements, an outline of the proposed solution will be provided to you. After your acceptance of the proposal, the work will be started immediately. We guarantee the best results in the shortest time span with our fully integrated services.
Once the project is completed, the works will be delivered in accordance with the proposal. As one of the UK’s leading certified contractors, Hydrosure has an outstanding track record of providing water main installations that are reliable, eco-friendly and durable.
HOW IT WORKS
Powerful pneumatic moling units are used to dig horizontal boreholes between excavated areas making use of repeated hammerings to displace the soil in front of the unit. Two square holes of approximately 2 metres deep are dug with one serving as the starting point and the other as the destination or exit hole where the mole will resurface. Once the mole has passed through the proposed route the water main pipes can be easily pulled through.
The moling method has lower equipment and labour cost whilst minimizing the effects of any possible disturbance on the area. The method which is slightly invasive is ideal for boring underneath obstacles, lawns, driveways and ditches when installing water mains.
Further benefits include protection of the environment, faster installation, no disruption of surface infrastructure or services with minimal excavations or disturbances required.
Using the moling technique reduce the time needed to replace a water main installation and are a more cost-effective installation service than any excavation.
SOIL TYPES SUITABLE FOR MOLING
The success of the moling procedure depends on the type of soil present, which has a certain effect on the procedure. The preferred soil types are clay, sand, fine and coarse gravel, and silt while other types can cause damage to the equipment and the environment.
