Hydro-Vac

An example of hydro-vac excavtion. This high pressure gas main was suspected to be leaking. After setting up traffic control and emergency procedures it was carefully located by potholing. Following this the entire tee section and pipes were exposed for an easy and safe repair.

Flood Prevention

An example of some larger scale specialised plumbing. We constructed a pump well with inlet weir and grating, with two large pumps on guide rails. In flooding situations the large influx of storm water could then be pumped outside the levee banks. See more on the portfolio gallery.......

STP and Distribution

Sewer from three homes and School amenities at an Outback School was run through 3 small Sewer Treatment Plants to this distribution well. What was once a dust bowl is now a green, grassed play oval of approx 30 x 50 metres.

Drain Repair

No relining this time. After CCTV inspection and diagnosis small sections of drains were replaced and sewer junctions with large diameter access risers were installed as a safer alternative to using access manholes.

Most underground services can be located using an electronic locator. Metal services such as gal pipes and also copper cables are straight forward. Some fibre optic cables have been laid in place with a metal tracer wire for locating. Drains can be located with this method by sending a frequency emmiting sonde down the drain with the aid of pushrods, ropes, cctv camera or water jetter.

Once the underground services have been located, marked and mapped out it is usually best to have them exposed by potholing, which you can read about on the Potholing Page.

 

There are other methods such as ultrasonic pulsing to locate plastic water pipes and one of the best methods is Ground Penetrating Radar by which you can see practically anything underground when used correctly by trained proffessionals
