Underground Solutions Installs First Fusible C900 PVC Waterline

Jan. 9, 2004
Successfully Completes First of Several Horizontal Directional Drilling Projects
Underground Solutions, Inc. successfully installed its first Fusible C900™ PVC waterline installation. The initial 800 foot run of the project, which is located in Center Hill, Fla., was an 8-inch diameter Fusible C900™ pressure line installed utilizing a "trenchless" horizontal directional drilling method.

Fusible C900™ and Fusible C905™ PVC are two new patent-pending products recently developed and introduced by Underground Solutions. Both products cover a full range of piping diameters from 4 inch to 48 inch to provide a method of installing a continuous, monolithic, gasket-free PVC pipe or conduit capable of being used in numerous trenchless (no-dig) or conventional "open-cut" applications.

Applications for this revolutionary technology cover every aspect of piping installations including both pressure and non-pressure situations in the water, sewer, electrical, industrial and telecommunications industries.

According to a recent report by The Freedonia Group, an authority on the piping industry, approximately 6 billion feet of plastic pipe is installed by the construction industry each year.
