Impact Moling: A Revolutionary Technique

At Pipeline Services, we utilise a cutting-edge technique known as impact moling for our water supply pipe installations. This method of installing a new water pipe involves moling through the soil with a pneumatic cylinder in a straight line from one pit to another, offering numerous advantages:

Minimal Disruption

Fewer excavations in your concrete, tarmacadam, or flagged driveway require making good on completion.

Faster Completion

Installation of a water pipe by way of impact moling leads to less disruption to the surrounding area and faster completion times compared to traditional trenching methods.

Cost-Efficiency Through Impact Moling

When impact moling is possible due to favourable ground types, your new water supply pipe can be installed at your property at a reduced cost when compared with traditional trench excavation to make the connection to the water main that is the water company’s responsibility.

Transparent Pricing for Your Peace of Mind

One common query among our customers is the cost per meter for our moling services to install a new water main. The cost per meter using the trenchless method of impact moling to install a water supply pipe can vary depending on various factors such as:

  • Length of the pipe to be installed
  • Distance between the launch pit and the receiving pit
  • Ground conditions and types
  • Water main installation project complexity

However, rest assured that our pricing for a new water pipe is competitive and transparent, ensuring you receive excellent value for your investment.

How does moling work?

Moling Cost per Metre UKMoling in plumbing is an advanced trenchless method specifically designed for the installation of water supply pipes and gas pipes. Our skilled engineers employ specialised pneumatic impact moles, also known as moles. These powerful devices, operated with compressed air, are launched from small excavation points and effortlessly navigate through the ground, displacing soil, even in challenging soil conditions, and creating smooth bore holes in the desired direction.

The new small diameter pipes are then carefully aligned and pulled through these bore holes, eliminating the need for extensive trenching and minimising disruption to your property. This process ensures the installation of a new pipe in a straight line and is particularly effective for connecting to the water main pipe.

Benefits of a new water supply pipe

There are several benefits to installing a new water supply pipe:

  1. Improved water quality: Over time, old pipes can corrode or become contaminated, affecting the quality of the water flowing through them. Installing a new pipe ensures cleaner and safer water for consumption and everyday use.
  2. Enhanced water pressure: Old and deteriorating pipes may restrict water flow, leading to low water pressure in your home. A new supply pipe can help improve water pressure, ensuring adequate flow for various household activities such as showering, washing dishes, and doing laundry.
  3. Reduced risk of leaks and bursts: Old pipes are more prone to leaking, cracks, and bursts, which can result in water damage to your property and costly repairs. By replacing outdated pipes with new ones, you can reduce the risk of a sudden leak.
  4. Adaptability to different pipe sizes: Installing a new water supply pipe provides an opportunity to adapt to different pipe sizes, allowing for better customisation and optimisation of your plumbing system to meet your household’s specific needs.
  5. Long-term cost savings: While the initial cost of installing a new water supply pipe may be an investment, it can lead to long-term cost savings by reducing the need for frequent repairs, minimising water wastage from leaks, and potentially increasing the efficiency of your overall water system.

Overall, installing a new water supply pipe can improve water quality, pressure, and reliability, contributing to a safer, more efficient, and cost-effective water supply system for your house.
