Fireline

Fireline refers to a type of water pipe system that is used to extinguish fires. Underground pipes attach to fire hydrants or fire suppression systems and deliver pressurized water at an accelerated speed.

Fireline is installed by pipeline contractors. The process is similar to other types of water pipe and entails excavating the land, preparing trenches, laying pipe, and attaching components.

Wet Utility Contractors

Wet utility contractors are involved with many jobs related to subsurface pipeline. In addition to installing new sewer and water pipes and storm drainage systems, contractors also repair or remove pipes; prepare worksites for demolition work; and restore jobsites once pipeline work is completed.

Wet utility contractors also are involved with installation and repair of municipal water treatment systems, steel tanks, and pre-cast pump houses along with updating deteriorating freshwater pipelines.

Water Pipe

There are different types of water pipe material that enable drinking water, fire prevention water and landscape-only water to be available as needed throughout our communities. Pipe that carries potable water, fireline water and recycled water is basically composed of two material types: metal or plastic. These water pipe types must operate under various water pressure conditions to ensure water flows to the appropriate designations.

The type of water pipe materials depends on the nature of the construction project and is usually determined by the designing civil engineer according to specifications required for the city or county where water pipe is to be installed. Water pipeline is commonly installed underground. Depending on the corrosivity of soil conditions, plastic pipe may be more suitable over metal pipe. Then again, metal pipe may also be installed using a protective plastic cover

Pipeline Construction Contractors

Pipeline construction contractors are responsible for installing, repairing, and replacing pipelines used to convey water, fuel, and petroleum-based products. Contractors are also charged with maintaining utility pipelines used to protect fiber optic cables and phone lines, along with sewer pipes and storm water drainage systems.

Pipeline construction contractors
handle most facets of the construction process including trenching, pipe installation, backfilling, paving, and land restoration. Contractors are also in charge of managing the process of applying protective coatings to pipes in order to prevent corrosion.

Pipeline Contractors

Pipeline contractors utilize a variety of techniques to install subsurface pipeline systems. The type of pipes used depends upon the construction project. Gas and oil pipelines are entirely different than sewer and water pipelines, although installation processes are sometimes similar.

Pipeline contractors oversee the installation of new pipelines from start to finish. Once a design is provided, subsurface utility engineering is used to locate existing utilities and pipelines. Afterward, the land is prepared by removing rocks, boulders, shrubbery, trees, and other types of landscaping or building materials.

Pipeline Pricing

Pipeline pricing affects the pipeline construction industry's bottom line. Recently, a major resin supplier to the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipe industry declared "force majeure." This is an unexpected and disruptive event, such as an act of God, inevitable accident or unavoidable casualty that may operate to excuse a party from a contract. Recently, such an instance adversely affected material availability for plastic pipeline production, causing increasing pricing in pipe materials because this resin is a key component used for making sewer, water pipeline and storm drainage system PVC-specific pipelines and to some extent, high density polyethylene (HDPE) pipelines.
