How we carry out your replacement
We simply dig small pits and use high-tech pneumatic moling units that effectively burrow their way between the excavations – boring horizontally between the excavations. Using pneumatic power, the mole hammers its way through the soil to create a smooth bored tunnel that the new pipe is pulled through.
As well as reducing the labour and equipment costs incurred in digging of trenches, by using moling for pipe replacement or new pipe-work we avoid the previously unavoidable disturbance of gardens, driveways and patios.
Optimum Water Flow
Modern MDPE water supply pipes are far superior to the old lead or other existing pipework that they replace. Modern MDPE water supply pipe is not only very strong, but is also flexible making it very durable. Also with a much larger diameter, modern MDPE flow rates can be significantly increased, optimizing the delivery of water to your property.
Superior Water Quality
Exterior Plumbing Services work in compliance with the governments ‘Drinking Water Quality Regulations’. This means that when we undertake work for our customers, they will have peace of mind knowing that upon completion, the water they are being supplied will be purer and of better quality.
Higher flow can benefit both commercial and residential customers, as more efficient delivery to water dependant appliances can help save energy.
As we all know, even bottled water has an impact on our environment due to the abstraction of water, product packaging and the pollution from transportation. With modern MDPE water supply pipes everyone can enjoy good quality water straight from the tap, and it’s cheaper. Helping to save our environment, and save money.
