Spanish term or phrase: mediante un plomo
En los primeros 50 cm, se rellenará el receso con arena normalizada, la que será compactada hidráulicamente y mediante un plomo.

WITH THE AID OF A VERTICAL PLUMBLINE?

THIS IS URGENT!
I AM CONFUSED BECAUSE THE ORIGINAL IS IN CHILEAN SPANISH AND HERE WE SAY "PLOMADA", NOT "PLOMO."

Notes to answerer
Asker: Gracias, Slothm. Como verás, cerré la pregunta casi inmediatamente de haberla enviado, porque en mi viejo Diccionario L. Robb para Ingenieros encontré la traducción de "plomo", que entiendo es lo mismo que "plomada". Lo que pasó fue que como nunca había visto el término que aparecía en el texto, y en el diccionario aparecía esta únia acepción, se me ocurrió que quizás fuera un tipo de plomada especial para uso en el agua, es decir, algo un poquito diferente de la conocida "plumb line". Voy a poner ambos términos en el glosario :)
