Groundwater levels may be stabilised in the workplace using wellpoint systems. Small diameter wells are connected by a header pipe to a wellpoint pump in the middle of a network. Using this method, water may be vacuumed out of sandy soils, drying and stabilising the banks.
Sand, sandy clay, and sandy loam soils are particularly well-suited for Whitewater’s significant experience in building up wellpoint dewatering systems.
The wellpoints are buried in the ground and coated in filtering blankets that trap the tiniest of particles. In order to lower the water table, they are connected to a collector that runs along or encircles the region in question. In order to thoroughly dry the soil, a piston pump, either electric or diesel-powered, is used to place the network under a vacuum.
What’s the point of Wellpoint?
The dewatering capabilities of wellpoint systems make them an excellent choice for pipeline trench construction because of their suitability for shallow foundations and excavations. The installation and maintenance of a wellpoint system are both rapid and simple, regardless of the ground conditions.
A drop of around 6 meters may be achieved using a single stage wellpoint system. A second stage or a deep well system might be used for excavations that need to go deeper.
In terms of cost, flexibility, and stability, Wellpoint Dewatering is an excellent option. This equipment can be recommended and set up as a result of our on-site inspections and calculations, as well as our prior understanding of the soil conditions. As soon as the system is operational, we continue to provide round-the-clock assistance via our local depots or on-site.
