Consisting of multiple components and many different materials, manholes are necessary to access utility vaults or to perform maintenance on other underground utilities. It is crucial that manholes go through the proper assessment and rehabilitation in order to keep them up and running. Since there are different types of manholes and each component breaks down differently, each one must be repaired and renewed in a specific way. H & R Plumbing specializes in performing the correct manhole rehabilitation in order to keep the manholes properly maintained.
Manholes are most commonly constructed of two materials, bricks and mortar or precast concrete. Though newer materials are being used today, the traditional materials will not be renovated in the older manholes. Many technologies are available for rehabilitating each component of a manhole without needing to excavate and replace. It is important to identify all the defects and components of the manhole before starting the rehabilitation process in order to define the extent of rehabilitation needed.
