Waterline pulls are a vital component of the trenchless technology used by Kalin Trenchless for installing underground water pipelines. In this method, a steel cable is inserted through the pipe and connected to a pulling machine at one end while the other end is connected to a winch or another pulling device. As the pulling device applies tension, the pipe is pulled through the ground to the desired location. The process is highly efficient and significantly reduces the need for excavation and surface disruption. Moreover, waterline pulls are suitable for various soil types, including rocky and hard-packed soil, and can be used to install pipelines of different sizes and lengths. Overall, waterline pulls are a cost-effective and reliable method for installing water pipelines using trenchless technology.
Waterline pulling is a trenchless method of installing underground water pipelines, which reduces the need for excavation and minimizes surface disruption. This method is highly efficient and cost-effective, making it a popular choice for water pipeline installations.
Before beginning the waterline pulling process, the site is surveyed to determine the best path for the pipeline. The ground is then excavated to expose the starting and ending points of the pipeline, and a pit is dug at the starting point for the pulling machine.
A steel cable is inserted through the water pipe, and one end of the cable is attached to a pulling machine, while the other end is left free. The cable is then pulled through the entire length of the pipe until both ends are exposed.
Once the cable is in place, the pulling machine is turned on, and the cable is gradually pulled through the ground, dragging the water pipe behind it. The tension is closely monitored to prevent damage to the pipe or the cable.
Once the water pipe has been pulled through the ground to the desired location, it is connected to the existing water infrastructure, and the site is restored to its original condition. This may involve the installation of valves, fittings, or other components, depending on the project's requirements.
