FAQ : Must we complete certain verifications prior to having screw piles installed on our property?

Before welcoming our Postech Screw Piles installer on your property, you must make a few verifications. What’s important is that you know if there are certain installations buried on your property before installing the screw piles. This will avoid any inconveniences or surprises and ensure a safe installation for you and our installer.

What to look for?

Water main or artesian well

Whether your house is connected to municipal services or an artesian well, it is important to know where your water main is located.  This will help us correctly locate your sanitary installations and will avoid that any piping be damaged during the screw pile installation.  You can find out where these are by observing your plumbing and locating where the city water main is connected. However, it is impossible to know exactly how the water main, or other connections were installed in the beginning.  Is it therefore important to make the appropriate verifications with a professional.

Gas main

Probably the most important element to verify : gas pipes.  Make sure to have the precise information concerning your gas pipes is they are underground.  Damaging a gas pipe can be extremely dangerous for you and all your occupants, not to mention our installer.

Electricity and other connections

Other important connections that must be validated before installing our screw piles : Internet / cable / telephone, electricity, street lamp, pool.  You must make sure that all buried wires or other connections be identified in order to prevent any additional fees or unexpected surprises.
