Water mains replacement sounds like a big job doesn’t it? You can imagine the trenches being dug, the noise, the mess, in fact the whole, sheer inconvenience of it. And then you might be thinking, how long can all this take, will my home be effectively an excavation site for days on end?
You’ve already decided that water mains replacement does need doing and you feel that you now have to live with that decision. What you’re worrying about is getting the work underway and living with the consequences. But actually you don’t need to be so fatalistic. In reality, modern trenchless technology means that we can carry out your water mains replacement with the minimum of fuss and the maximum of efficiency.
Our state of the art technology allows us to complete replacement pipe work without excavating. This saves on time, manpower, equipment cost and significantly reduces disruption to you and disturbance to your property.
With impact moling we apply pneumatic technology to bore underground holes through which we can then pull through new pipework. It takes a lot less time than traditional trench excavation and it’s a far less messy in terms of disturbance to the surrounding area.
Once the water mains replacement work is complete, you’ll have brand new, long lasting pipe work, made from durable medium-density polyethylene (MDPE). And importantly, you won’t have had to put up with a great deal of upheaval and stress to get it. We’ll take you through the whole process, from enquiry to completion, including a full site risk assessment prior to pipe replacement and connection to the mains.
So when you’re considering how to go about getting your pipes replaced, remember that with trenchless technology less is more: less cost, less time taken, less to clean up afterwards, and much, much more customer satisfaction when everything’s over.
