The hot tap process for a water distribution pipeline begins with the evaluation of the needed connection. The information that the customer needs to provide us are the following:
- Size and material of the main?
- Wall thickness of the main?
- Design pressure and design temperature?
- Operational pressure and temperature?
- Hot tap size and pressure Class?
- Is the use of electric tools allowed in the worksite?
After Tonisco personnel receive the basic information, we can provide you with the budget quote for the hot tap process. We will always make recommendations on the components (valves & fittings), but we can also operate with components provided by the customer.
