With any large-scale project, having the best equipment is the preferred method. For many companies, protecting the hose lines is an inconsequential cost. Hoses that transport materials of all kinds are only protected with rudimentary plywood boards placed atop the hose. Or the hose is left to it’s own defense against the weight and damage of industrial vehicles, employee traffic and other factors.
The problem with cutting costs in this situation is that you could be doing yourself a much larger disservice by trying to nickel and dime your project. Instead of using wooden boards or nothing at all, using a product like Brahman Systems hose protectors will keep your projects on schedule and they can save you from the frustration of those unforeseen expenses.
During a home renovation, especially if you live in an historical or older home, the plumbing in your dwelling may need an update. Hose protectors are used to help transfer the water line from your home into another area or to help regulate the septic line in the proper way. Let’s imagine that this line was severed or damaged thanks to your contractors bulldozer, what do you imagine will happen? A flooded yard, higher water bill, additional costs to stem the flow and your project’s finish date will probably have to be pushed back. If hoses are protected in the home, the final result can be even worse. When a hose line is damaged, water can pour into your home causing flooding damage and the possibility of toxic mold.
Pushing back the finish date on any construction project is additional cost. When water lines break on a larger scale, like civic improvements, the damage is not only expensive but affects so many of the things around it. When water mains break, the flooding can damage businesses and homes in the area, interfere with the flow of traffic and alter the surrounding environment. The water lines to the homes and businesses in the area have to be stalled in order to stop the flow of water, the project takes longer than expected, and everyone involved pays more for a mistake that could have been easily avoided.
