The clean water that is used in your household or business comes from a pipe that is connected to a water filtration plant, located by the neighborhood water utility. Moreover, the wastewater that results from using the restroom or running a dishwasher in your household or business goes out through a pipe that is connected to a wastewater treatment plant, also located by the neighborhood utility. The homeowners and business owners of the community pay the utility to operate the water supply and wastewater disposal system facilities – this exchange is widely known as the city water and sewer service.
The main gas line is the pipe that conveys natural gas to your commercial or industrial building. This gas line is located underground, most commonly under streets, sidewalks or alleyways. The pipe material can be cast iron, steel, copper or plastic; wear and tear is likely to occur overtime which is why you need a company like Magnolia to ensure the safety and reliability of your underground gas lines.
Hydro Excavation/HydroVac Services
This method is usually preferred in cases where the soil is cohesive and undisturbed. Hydro excavation has gained popularity over the years as a method used for digging and moving soil. Magnolia Plumbing, Heating & Cooling offers the best hydro excavation solution where mechanical excavation can’t be done due to limited construction space or when there are known or unknown underground utilities.
Test pitting is a non-invasive method of locating underground utilities. This is a necessary step in any excavation job to prevent costly and/or dangerous damage. If an area is not tested and evaluated before excavation, it can break a telephone line or water main. In addition, test pitting ensures that an area is suitable for construction.
Potholing, also known as daylighting, is the process of using hydro excavation to dig a hole that exposes underground pipes, cables, and utilities. Potholing is safer than conventional excavation methods because the water will not cause damage to underground utilities. It is also more precise because it can reach locations that are more difficult to access with traditional machines.
Pole holes are created through hydro excavation to create pathways for the installation of pipes, cables, and other utilities. The holes vary in diameter and depth depending on the pipes being installed.
Like utility pole holes, slot trenching is when hydro excavation is used so underground utilities can be installed. But, slot trenching is the excavation of narrow trenches rather than a hole.
