Water industry pipes are measured by their outside diameter. This measurement is vital as fittings and caps must fit with the exterior of the pipe for proper functioning.
Pipe jacking involves harnessing soil pressure and friction resistance at the pipe-soil interface to generate jacking force, with this figure dependent on overcut, lubricants used, work stoppages and geological conditions.
Early Life and Education
Jack was raised in Miami’s “the place where time forgot” neighborhood known as West Grove; home to people employed as security at Peacock Inn or serving wealthy clients as nannies and butlers; where his mom, two siblings, and him struggled just to make ends meet.

He is adept in welding and power tools, employing them when reviewing and constructing piping system designs using engineered isometric drawings.
Jack is adept in using 3-D software to expedite design processes and accelerate construction services, working closely with engineers and contractors to ensure smooth project implementation – saving both time and money for everyone involved while helping Rinker Materials better serve its clients. Jack also enjoys traveling; having visited Italy, Japan, England and Taiwan.
