Pipelines can last for years. In fact, there are some in operation that are over 50 years old. But pipelines can’t last forever and once they start to rust and break they’ll need to be replaced.
That said, how can you prepare your business for a new waterline installation? Is there anything you can do to make the entire process go smoother?
How can I prep my business for a pipeline installation?
The idea of a new pipeline installation can be stressful for a business owner, but you can streamline the process by readying your place of business for the installation. Here are a few ways you can help make the entire process go smoothly for everyone involved:
- Clear the area. If you know where the pipeline will be going and if the area isn’t already cleared out, consider doing a little yard maintenance. Objects that are in the way can take time to remove. The longer your crew spends on removing these objects, the longer it’ll take to remove the old pipeline and install the new one.
- Consider stopping business for the time being. It may not be in your best interest or in the interest of your employees to keep the business running when you’re having a new pipeline installed. If you have another building available for the time being, it may be best to keep things running there instead. This is because your old pipeline will be turned off.
- Use directional boring services instead of traditional ones. Directional boring services are great at installing pipelines fast with minimum impact on the surrounding environment. This is great for those with some serious landscaping happening around their place of business that would take a while to replace.
