  • What Are The Benefits of Commercial Pipe Bursting?

    Repairs become more difficult when commercial aspects are involved. Aside from being disruptive for businesses and time consuming, they can also pose some safety and health hazards for the employees and customers. Trenchless technology has introduced a no-dig solution that can turn a potential sewage or drain problem into one that’s relatively seamless and quick. ...

  • Residential Sewer and Drain Pipe Line Repairing by Pipe Bursting Method

    One responsibility a homeowner must accomplish is the regular maintenance and repairs around the house. The scale goes up according to how pressing the problem is. Decisive action must be done for emergency situations, especially when it comes to sewer line emergencies. As soon as you notice the pipes leaking or backing up, you’ll need to immediately have it inspected and repaired. If not, ...

  • 5 Considerations for Choosing Pipe Bursting

    Homeowners who encounter sewer, drain, and water line problems often dread repairs not just because of the expense, but the major disruptions that they expect. Excavation, torn up lawns, and days of going without water are associated with traditional methods of repair. Fortunately, technology has made it possible to assess and fix pipes with minimal disruption by using a technique called pipe ...

  • Should I insulate my condensate units’ receiver?

    This issue is not addressed in Xylem Domestic Pump and Hoffman Pump product manuals, factory recommendations or Little Red School House steam system application and sizing guides. Some installations require insulation for safety. Otherwise, it’s a matter of choice based on system design and your understanding of the strengths, limitations and use of products in the system. ...

  • The effect of pipe collectors in reducing the drainage coefficient rate

    A high groundwater table and soil salinity, especially in arid regions, often cause serious problems for agriculture. In irrigated areas the subsurface drainage can be an effective technique to lower the depth of the groundwater table and reduce soil salinity. In drainage systems, lateral pipes are designed to collect the free water from soil and convey it into collectors. In other words, ...

  • Simplifying impact of urban development on sewer systems

    Linking urban development and urban drainage models is a more and more popular approach when impacts of pavement of urban areas on sewer system performance are evaluated. As such an approach is a difficult task, this is not a feasible procedure for everyday engineering practice. We propose an alternative method, based on a developed simple near-quadratic relationship, which directly translates ...

  • Drain Cleaning Does Not Require Digging Anymore

    The professionals at Lake Norman Septic use cable snakes and other tools to locate your septic issue and unclog any drains and pipes. Before these techniques existed a septic tank issue often meant intensive digging and weeks of messy yard waste. The new cable snakes use tiny cameras than can easily squeeze through your sewer and septic ...

  • Multi-objective rehabilitation of urban drainage systems under uncertainties

    Urban drainage systems are subject to many drivers which can affect their performance and functioning. Typically, climate change, urbanisation and population growth along with aging of pipes may lead to uncontrollable discharges and surface flooding. So far, many researchers and practitioners concerned with optimal design and rehabilitation of urban drainage systems have applied deterministic ...

  • New equation for the computation of flow velocity in partially filled pipes arranged in parallel

    This paper presents a new approach for the computation of flow velocity in pipes arranged in parallel based on an analytic development. The estimation of the flow parameters using existing methods requires trial and error procedures. The assessment of flow velocity is of great importance in flow measurement methods and in the design of drainage networks, among others. In drainage network design, ...

  • Deep groundwater collection tenches by the bio-polymer drain method

    Introduction The installation of deep drainage trenches has long been a risk-filled and costly endeavor, conventional installation techniques involve dewatering, sheeting and shoring, and danger to personnel working in the trench from trench collapse. Recently, due to the public's concern for the environment and the need to preserve groundwater resources, there has been an increased demand ...

  • Assessing the potential of using telecommunication microwave links in urban drainage modelling

    The ability to predict the runoff response of an urban catchment to rainfall is crucial for managing drainage systems effectively and controlling discharges from urban areas. In this paper we assess the potential of commercial microwave links (MWL) to capture the spatio-temporal rainfall dynamics and thus improve urban rainfall-runoff modelling. Specifically, we perform numerical experiments ...

  • Beach front stabilization and tidal erosion control (Gulf Coast, Mississippi, USA) case study

    Background: The City of Ocean Springs is located on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi and a recently constructed beach-side sidewalk is a popular place for residents to walk. During rainstorms throughout the year and high tides, the water would wash away the sand next to the sidewalk, leaving a large drop-off to the beach. Technical Information: ...

  • The different purposes of drain cleaners

    Drain cleaners are chemicals that help in clearing off septic tank drain pipes or to put a stop to the amount of congested pipes. It is commonly suggested through septic tank specialists, as it is an easiest ways do repair to drainage problems. Drain cleaners includes very hazardous chemical ...

  • Experimental and numerical investigation of interactions between above and below ground drainage systems

    This paper presents the results of the experimental and numerical investigation of interactions between surface flood flow in urban areas and the flow in below ground drainage systems (sewer pipes and manholes). An experimental rig has been set up at the Water Engineering Laboratory at the University of Sheffield. It consists of a full scale gully structure with inlet grating, which connects the ...

  • Fat Trap case study

    During the summer season at a busy National Park, we were asked to give assistance with a blocked soakaway drain. Due to the location and the time of year the soakaway had to be treated rapidly and with the minimum of disturbance. Then drain received combined effluent from a busy restaurant (which had not been maintained) and a large septic tank that served several public toilets. The pipe ...
