Common Tips For Diverting Water On Your Construction Site

Common Tips for Diverting Water on Your Construction Site

For a construction project to be a successful one, you will need your site to be completely dry. Water intrusion is a common problem when it comes to construction sites, and in many cases it is not possible to completely stop the flow of water. In such cases the alternative is to block the water from your site, allowing it to flow but away from where construction is taking place.

There Are Countless Types of Construction Projects Where Water Intrusion Is An Issue

It would be ideal if all construction took place in perfectly dry conditions, but while some projects always steer clear of water, others occur in areas where water definitely needs diverting. For example, your company could be working to repair a long stone or concrete bridge across a river for example, or repair pipes or cables that have been placed under water. You simply would be unable to work if water was flowing all around you.

The best working conditions are dry and isolated. You may be able to reroute the water temporarily, but it’s best if you use the most ideal method possible in order to do this. If you don’t, you may find that sediment from your construction project area will end up in the water flow, contaminating normally clean water sources further downstream.

The Best Way of Diverting Water On Your Construction Site – A Water Filled Cofferdam from Dam-It-Dams

You may be accustomed to using sandbags to divert water from your construction site, but you’ll understand how difficult they are to transport, and how costly. Thankfully, there is an alternative – a water filled cofferdam from Dam-It-Dams. Our dams are incredibly effective, easy to transport, easy to deploy and are kind to the environment.

All you need to do is position one of our dams where you need it to be, then inflate it with water. The dam will sink into position, creating an effective barrier against water intrusion. When finished, you simply remove the water, allow the dam to deflate, roll it up and transport it away! It could not be simpler!
