Get New Supply Lines in Fast with the Plastic Pipe Splitter Tool
When you're replacing old supply lines, the process can seem to drag on forever. But if those old supply lines are plastic pipe, you may have options that make it easier than ever to get those old lines out of the way without the bother of extensive excavation. New Concept Tools was founded on the concept of developing better tools for the needs of the water utility industry, and our Plastic Pipe Splitter tool is no exception. Keep reading to learn more about this easy-to-use, effective piece of water utility equipment.
You know how it is when you need to change out a supply line. You block off traffic. You dig. And dig. And dig. Finally, having removed all of that soil, pavement and turf, you can replace the supply line, and then you have to repair all of the damage. In the meantime, people are calling into your water utility's office complaining about traffic being backed up due to the work. It's a no-win situation, because you have to replace the supply line, but you know you're going to hear about it.
But what if replacing those supply lines could be fast and easy? What if they required a fraction of the digging that you'd expect? What if you could simply move the old plastic supply lines out of the way to make room for the new lines? With our Plastic Pipe Splitter tool, this option is well within the realm of possibility.
Designed to work with virtually all soil conditions and the vast majority of plastic pipes, our Plastic Pipe Splitter tool is pulled along at the front of the bullhead on our Service Line Puller Kit. Though it could be used with other companies' service line pullers, you should bear in mind that it was specifically designed to work with our system. After you've excavated both ends of the service line, you simply remove the ends of the line, feed the cable through the old line, string the Plastic Pipe Splitter tool onto the cable, add the Bullhead, and watch it split and push the old plastic service line out of the way, pulling the new line in place behind it, if that's your task at hand.
The Plastic Pipe Splitter is a metal tool that has been designed to split the old plastic piping in several locations around the tool, which then flares out to push the old pipe out of the way of the new pipe, which is drawn into place behind the Bullhead. Used on 3/4" and 1" pipe, the sharp fins cut the old pipe to make way for the new pipe being drawn in behind it.
As you can see, the Plastic Pipe Splitter can help you quickly replace your old supply lines by simply splitting them, moving them out of the way of the new line you're pulling into place. But what if you're not quite sure whether the Plastic Pipe Splitter will work with your existing equipment? What if you have questions about how well it will work in your soil conditions?
