How to Improve Your Dewatering Process with Space Saver Flanges

Whoever said there can never be too much of a good thing was obviously a hopeless optimist. When a construction site, flood zone or other area has been inundated with water, removing it is vital to allow safe access and further progress in that area. Dewatering helps to make this happen for a wide range of situations, but it can be complex when you're dealing with a wide range of different fitting sizes and limited space to place them. Fortunately, Team Red Hed has the perfect solution. Here's how our space saver flanges can help you get the water out and get back to work.

When you have excess water in an area, the ground becomes soggy, creates safety issues for your crew and can have a severe impact on the environment. Dewatering removes excess water from the soil, flood zones or pipes, allowing you to work more easily and removing risks to your crew, equipment and the environment. It can be used to remove significant amounts of liquid waste, reducing the amount that must be disposed of using more expensive options.

Dewatering allows you to remove that water through pipe, transporting it through a bypass to another area. A pump is attached to the bypass, allowing it to shift the water from one location to the next. However, you're often provided with a single or very small range of fittings to go from the dewatering pump to your bypass. This means you'll have to work with a range of fittings to get from one size and type to the other. Because of the limited area where the pump and fittings must be placed, it can be difficult, if not impossible, to actually fit these adapters within the needed area.

What if you didn't have to go through a range of fittings, but instead only had to pass through a single fitting? At Team Red Hed, we found a lot of our customers were having problems going from one size or type of pipe to another. After giving it some careful consideration, we developed our space saver flange to help get the job done. Instead of having to add multiple fittings that take too much room and effort to effectively implement, you only have to add a single fitting that will go from one size or type of pipe to the other while working within in a minimal amount of space.

When you add our space saver flanges to your dewatering kit, you can rest assured that you're ready to meet whatever challenges come your way without having to wait on parts to arrive or clunky sets of fittings that don't really fit the space available. But which flanges are the right ones for your project? Team Red Hed is standing by, ready to help you find the perfect solution to meet the needs of your project or water utility.
