Advantages of Using Underwater Conduit System

An underwater conduit system has numerous advantages over alternative systems. Many people are unaware of the benefits of an underwater conduit system because they have never used them before or had little opportunity to compare them to other systems. In this article, you will find out some of the best but often overlooked advantages of using an underwater conduit system.

Installation Year-Round

An underwater conduit can be installed year-round, a major advantage over above ground conduits. Underwater systems are exempt from the environmental factors that affect other systems. Projects can proceed on your timeline regardless of the weather.

Lower Cost Compared to Alternatives

Installing an underwater conduit system means eliminating many of the installation costs of above ground alternatives. Underwater conduit does not need a suspension system or the extensive digging that keeps other conduits a safe distance from people, animals, and the weather. This reduced effort means installing an underwater conduit system is less expensive to install. Underwater conduit is designed to be easier to install than alternatives. Since it is flexible, it saves time and money. Underwater conduit is also compression-resistant and withstands impact damage.

Improved Safety

Underwater systems avoid many of the potential hazards that come with above ground systems. These hazards exist for workers installing systems but also to other people who co-exist with these systems. Underwater systems contain and produce no halogen or chlorine like many alternative systems. This makes them far safer to use and install. Improving safety reduces potential liability.

Superior Corrosion Resistance

Underwater systems are designed to resist rust and corrosion. This is important because water can do immense corrosion damage to other conduit systems. Unfortunately, corrosion often creates exorbitant maintenance costs. Underwater systems avoid these costs and the inconvenience of damaged, malfunctioning systems.

No Lost Curb Appeal

Underwater systems are out of sight, so they do no damage to a public area’s aesthetics or a private property’s curb appeal. This maintains the market value of properties after projects are completed. This is a major advantage over above ground systems that can disturb natural areas and create unsightly suspended lines.

Underwater Conduit Systems With FRE Composites

FRE Composites is the go-to source for affordable underwater systems. Our underwater systems cost less than submarine and aerial alternatives. Designed to conform to cross trench floors, FRE underwater systems can easily be applied to irregular trench profiles. Our underwater duct is flexible and designed to stand up to pressures at depths up to 30 meters (100 feet). FRE underwater systems do no harm to marine environments, practically or aesthetically, while still keeping your cables protected.

As opposed to less affordable aerial conduits, FRE underwater systems suffer no damage from wind and ice. Secure joint couplings using Bullnose Pulling Eyes enable installers to make continuous lengths of cable that can be pulled at the same time to eliminate expensive coffer dams. Take a look at our underwater systems in more detail or contact us today to find out how we can save you time and money on your next project.
