If you are tasked with dewatering a site, you will understand that you are about to undertake a task where careful consideration is key. If the proper procedures are followed, inexpensive and time-consuming delays could result. But, using a water-filled, portable dam such as a cofferdam will reduce delays. That is why installing a dam pump in water is less complicated and lengthy than many alternative solutions.
- Install a foot valve on the suction pipe to set up a dam pump. It will keep the water in the suction line that prevents large debris from being sucked up with the water, a rock to keep it under the water, and a float to keep it from sitting on the bottom, all tied on with baling twine.
- Once the suction end was set up in the dam, attach the discharge fittings and start the pump.
- After filling the troughs, disconnect the pump and leave the two sections of Polypipe ready for the next time you need to fill the troughs.
- Took the pump back to the other property.
