Pigging

We have perfected a method of ‘Pigging’ pumped rising mains that has proved highly successful for our clients.

Although we keep our process closely guarded for obvious reasons, we have as yet not failed to clear pipe work faults that we have been called to attend.

Case study; Nutwell Lodge, Devon

Nutwell Lodge is a very popular pub/restaurant in Lympstone. The restaurant caters for a large number of diners.

Their system consists of a large holding tank, Cess pool which is then pumped away.

The problem was that the 50mm pipe work from the Cess pool had become blocked this then Burnt the pumps out. At £6000 for two pumps to replace it was not cheep!

Their only solution to keep the pub open was to have a tanker on site 24/7 on turn around. The bill for this was £20k a month!

The next problem was that nobody knew where the pumped pipe work (rising main) outlet was!

Our first task was to trace and locate the pipe work. We found the outlet in the next village green some one and a half miles away! The pipe work went up and down hills and under the main Exeter high way all of this we traced with no excavation to within 2 feet.

Once this was located we were able to excavate down onto the 50mm pipe work and install out ‘Pig’ access Tee. We were then able to carry out our pipe Pigging process.

The pipe work was then thoroughly cleaned through over a period of three days. New pumps were fitted.

We installed a 1.2m inspection chamber to allow for regular maintenance to be carried out via our Pigging process.

The tankers were sent home!

 

Case Study; McDonalds

Among our other clients are McDonalds, due to the out of the way locations that many of the stores are found, they have to rely on pumped rising mains to get their waste to the main sewer which in many cases are hundreds of meters away!

Using our pigging process specifically designed for this application we have successfully cleared and cleaned through their pipe work on a number of stores throughout the country. All these were cleared and cleaned without any excavation needed!

As with all our ‘Pigging’ works with little or no disruption being caused to our clients business. The works are carried out quickly, quietly, and efficiently.

The only other alternative that all of our clients were facing was excavation of the entire pipe work and relaying new! This would have run into tens of thousands of pounds to carry out, as well as the disruption to their business and in most cases disruption to local traffic!
