Trenching and Pipelaying
Most people do not realize this but trenching is a very important process in the plumbing industry. Without trenching we would have all of our plumbing pipes exposed all over the world and this would not be very pleasant to look at. It could also be very noisy. With trenching we use special construction equipment to dig a trench to lay our plumbing pipes in. We are very careful and work within local regulations to ensure that we do not damage any other plumbing pipes or wires. Our trenches are deeper than they are wide and we make sure to patch our work up afterwards so that your yard will continue to look great.


Common Toilet Problems

What is pipe laying? Pipe laying is the process of laying pipes underground in trenches. We typically use a trench process rather than an excavation process for laying our pipes. Pipe laying is a complicated process and shouldn’t be done by someone who is not an expert. We ensure that all of our pipe is level when we lay it. If your pipe is not installed correctly then it is very likely that you will suffer underground leaks which can damage your home or business.


Royal Flush has a ton of earthworks experience. When you are driving around your neighborhood you typically don’t see any exposed pipes. This is because all of it is underground. Plumbing companies must be extremely competent with their earthworks in order to serve you best. We have the equipment, experience, and customer satisfaction history in order to protect you and your home during our trenching processes. Earthworks is essential for sewer repair and many other of our services.

Bobcat Hire

Our Bobcats are our most important trenching tool for our plumbing services. The great thing about this tool is that it allows us to properly dig up earth without damaging your property. If we were to use extremely large and heavy construction equipment then we would potentially damage your sidewalks, driveway, and landscaping. We make sure to take care of your home like it is our own.

Why are the dangers in trenching?

Trenching requires the crew to access underground areas, which makes it important to properly inspect the area before starting the excavation. There are different hazards and risks workers can face while working on this process; that’s why proper precautions are very important. Some of the common hazards include the following.

Interacting with Utility Lines

One of the main concerns of excavation is hitting utility lines. Therefore, it is essential to detect all the utility lines before starting the process because if anyone hits one of these lines or uncovers a line that isn’t insulated correctly, the results can be really dangerous. This can include striking a waterline which can cause leakage, damaging the gas line, causing an explosion, and striking the electrical line, which can be dangerous for workers’ life.

Cave-ins or Collapse

Cave-ins happen when the wall collapses inwards, and you get a failed trench. It can occur due to unstable soil, which is very dry to work with. You can also face this issue because of nearby vibrations due to some construction work or other reasons. Also, flooding and heavy rainfalls are something you must consider to avoid any problems.

Falls into Excavation

It is possible for materials or workers accidentally fall into trenches, which makes it quite risky to work on the site. You can use barriers and marks to make everyone conscious to avoid this issue. This problem can also happen because of the failing loads of dirt which can crush workers. Having trench excavation safety training saves the workers and everyone around from different dangers. Supervisors should also make sure that workers keep their distance when the equipment is being loaded or unloaded.

Choosing the Safest Trench Protection

The main function of trenches is to protect people from caving ground along with providing support to nearby structures. However, the availability of different types of trenches can make it a little confusing to make the right decision. Some of the factors you must consider to make the right choice include the following.

  1. A company’s protective system requirements will help decide which trenching solution is suitable for their needs – be it for a gas pipeline or main water line.
  2. The size of the protection system also depends on the width, depth, and length of excavation. Some systems are good for good depth, and then you will require additional systems to help with the process.
  3. It is also essential to consider the conditions of surrounding areas, such as utilities, underground water issues, adjacent structures, and other factors while choosing the best protective system.
  4. Soils are also one of the main concerns you must pay attention to. Identifying the soil type and which system will work best with it helps you a lot.

Correct & Efficient Installation

All professionals are aware of the importance of proper pipe installation because it is one of the basics in constructing any home or commercial building to make it properly functional without any water damage or leakage.

  1. Pipe supports are one of the most important parts of the structure of any place. Quality pipe supports make your pipe durable and prevent it from rubbing against metal surfaces.
  2. The quality and material of the pipes also ensure their durability and lifespan of pipes. Therefore, it is also important to choose a suitable material for pipes according to the requirements.
  3. Having the right piping system installed is also cost-effective because it saves you from future damage. Usually, the installation cost depends on the scope of work and geographic location.

I had issues with my toilet drain blocking up at my place of business, Royal Flush came out and saved the day on a Sunday morning before an event I had planned Later on in the evening. I had a chat to Matt about renovating the toilet and adding on an additional toilet and a new shower/bathroom and to my amazement he made this happen and I couldn’t be happier. Royal Flush, nit only provided the plumbing removal and install of this little project….
