There are only so many hours in the day for every mile on the job. Every drain tile repair requires different amounts of material, making it difficult to establish a process, and difficult to perform in a timely manner. And then, when you need to go back and examine a drain tile repair made months ago, finding the documentation is near impossible.
- Every bridge requires differing amounts of materials for completion.
- Establishing efficient procedures is difficult.
- Documentation recorded in the field is disorganized, and easily lost.
Time is money. Are you getting your money’s worth when your crews build sandbag bridges? Every hour that your crew spends repairing drain tile is a man hour they could be spending on tasks more essential to the pipeline installation process. How many man hours are you wasting because your drain tile repair processes are inefficient and inconsistent?
- Planning a budget is tough when you can only guess how much supplies you’ll need.
- Inefficient repair processes cost most in terms of man hours.
Safety is a key component along a pipeline construction project. One of the best ways to keep crews safe is to keep them out of dangerous situations. Unfortunately, conventional drain tile repair requires workers to get down into the trench. There are few places that are more hazardous than a situation where heavy equipment and supplies are above your head.
- Those in the pipeline trench are at greater risk of falling materials, flooding, and other hazards.
- Standard drain tile repairs keep crew members down in the pipeline trench.
- Carrying sandbags and other unwieldy materials leads to injury.
- Crew in trench can’t see potential hazards, and those outside the trench can’t see your crew.
