No need to bore. Because of the Patented technology, the pipe is installed in one step thuseliminating the need to bore a hole first. With no boring, there are no voidsaround the installed pipe, eliminating the chance of collapse or sinking of thesoil above the pipe. This makes the tool perfect when installing under pavers, riverbeds or any stabilized material. No water, hoses, nozzles, fittings or mess. There is no need to carry extraequipment to jobs.
No need for gas or electrical cords for power equipment. NO MAINTENANCE.Minimal installation time. Soil conditions and user experience can determine actual time.
How To Use A Sidewalk Sleever To Run Pipe Under An Obstacle:
|Place a piece of pipe next to the Sidewalk Sleever with one end touching the ""pipe stop"" and mark, with your finger, where the pipe just meets the tapered end. Then cut the pipe at that point. If the pipe is past the tapered end this will allow dirt to enter the pipe during installation.|
|Step Two||Take the cut pipe and slide it on the Sidewalk Sleever. It is important that the Sidewalk Sleever is clean. Dirt on the tool will make extracting the tool difficult.|
|Step Three||Place the Sidewalk Sleever just under the concrete and tap in a few inches. This will allow the tool to hold itself off the ground making it easier to install and also easier to remove the tool after installation.|
While straddling the trench, use a 16 pound sledge hammer to drive the Sidewalk Sleever under the sidewalk. Continue hammering the tool until the tapered end appears at the other end.
|Step Five||Once the tool and pipe are visible at the other end, simply grab the head of the tool and remove from the installed pipe. If necessary, tap the pointed end of the tool with the hammer to help the Sidewalk Sleever slide out of the pipe.|
|Step Six||Although soil conditions and experience can determine the speed of the installation, in the example here, the pipe was installed in under 60 seconds. Once the pipe is installed, you can glue fittings onto the pipe or you can use the installed pipe as a sleeve for wires. If more sleeves are needed, just simply repeat the steps and install as many pipes as needed.|
