Traditionally, when fixing a leak in an outdoor area that’s difficult to reach, a long trench will be excavated to access the pipe. Whilst this will enable a clear view of the affected pipe, it is very invasive and can cause damage to the ground surface. Nowadays, trenchless methods are more popular and many will use moling services to replace, repair and re-route water pipes. 

At Absolute Leak Detection, we use water pipe moling whenever possible and our pneumatically-driven machine prevents us from having to dig a trench. We have completed pipe repairs of varying complexities with this efficient method and it’s an ideal solution for the majority of circumstances. If you’re wondering why we use water pipe moling services, we have listed some of the key benefits of moling below. 

Cost Savings

When you’re experiencing issues with low water pressure or you have noticed water pooling in your garden, moling services can help to save you money. By eliminating the need to dig up an entire area to fix your water pipes, which can be expensive and time-consuming, water pipe moling will help you get to repair the pipe as efficiently. You won’t have an expensive clear-up job either, making moling services a cost-effective solution. 

Minimal Disruption

Water pipe moling services are minimally disruptive, which is beneficial when you have a leak in an area where disruption could cause significant damage like under your driveway, for example. The process of pipe moling does not involve any large-scale excavation and often, only two holes are needed to deploy the impact moling equipment, reducing damage to the ground surface. This less invasive option is suitable for any type of surface too, from tarmac and concrete to paving slabs and turf, and it’s easy to put things right once the repair is complete.

Quicker Solution 

More often than not, moling is much faster than traditional excavation methods. Any required holes are small enough that they can be dug by hand rather than a machine and the pneumatically-driven machine will quickly force its way through the soil to create the desired path of the pipe. This means that any repairs or replacements can be installed quickly and efficiently, reducing the amount of time it takes to complete the job.

Quality Service 

When you turn to experienced moling contractors, you can trust that this method will be more likely to produce better quality results than traditional methods. The process of water pipe moling is highly precise and an experienced team will ensure that the work is completed correctly and securely. Whether you need a poor-quality water supply pipe upgraded or a leak in your water main pipe fixed, moling services are a great solution to your needs. 

Safe Method

Water pipe moling services are typically much safer than traditional excavation methods. The process is carried out by a qualified technician who will ensure the safety of the area and the surrounding environment. They will keep the number of holes required to a minimum and prevent unnecessary disruption. You can have peace of mind knowing the job will be carried out efficiently and effectively, reducing the risk of future problems.
