Maintaining Trenchless Equipment Done Right

Home » Maintaining Trenchless Equipment Done Right

Maintenance isn’t the most exciting word in the trenchless professional’s vocabulary, but it’s definitely one of the most important. At Pow-R Mole Trenchless Solutions, we emphasize the importance of maintenance practices because they maximize operating efficiency and prolong the lifespan of our products.

Know Your Maintenance Needs

Every single piece of trenchless equipment needs some type of maintenance and many types of tools have specific considerations or requirements. That’s why you need to carefully read all documentation that accompanies each product and consult with the manufacturer when in doubt. Generally speaking, there are several types of basic maintenance practices: inspection, cleaning, lubrication, and repairs.

Inspect Your Tools

Make a habit of inspecting trenchless products after each use and conduct thorough examinations periodically. Give special attention to areas prone to damage. For example, always check the screws and caps of pneumatic piercing tools because they can become loosened during normal operations.

Keep Them Clean

Virtually all plumbing tools require frequent cleaning to prevent deterioration and ensure proper function. Consult the documentation for safe methods of removing dirt and grease from sensitive components.

Lubricate Moving Parts

Like any machine with moving parts, trenchless materials and tools often require frequent lubrication. You may even need to pause in the middle of a job to add oil to certain metal components or O-rings.

Repair When Necessary

Any sign of abnormal or inefficient operation means you should stop using the tool immediately and address the problem. Continuing to use equipment that is experiencing a fault can cause serious damage. Always repair tools before using them, even if the problem appears minimal.
