By utilising specialist moling equipment, we can install/replace your water supply pipe without the need for unsightly, disruptive and costly open cut trenches. We have a variety of different size moles to suit your supply pipe size requirements. We can also utilise moling to provide bore holes for other services and ducts.

How It Works

Water Mains Moling

An impact mole is an air-driven device which is launched from a small pit (usually 2.5ft x 1 ft), which punches its way through the ground to a receiving pit enabling new water mains piping to be installed. The soil is compacted outwards to create a smooth, almost glazed, bore which allows the water pipes to be installed quickly, without an unsightly trench. Apart from the small launch/receive pits, there is very little disruption and no visible piping!

Moling can create a bore under most surfaces or obstacles, lawns, hedges driveways, roads, ditches etc and can be used to install various pipes, cables or ducting.
