Frequently Asked Questions

When you’re faced with the need for water main installation or repair, the method used can greatly impact the disruption to your property and the long-term integrity of your water system. Trenchless technology has become a preferred choice for many property owners, business owners, and facility managers due to its minimal invasive nature and long-term benefits.

Trenchless technology involves repairing or replacing underground water pipes without the need for extensive excavation. This method uses specialised equipment to access the water main from small entry points, reducing the need for large trenches. The benefits of this approach are manifold:

  • Minimised Disruption: Trenchless repairs mean less digging, preserving your landscape, hardscape, and daily operations.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: With less excavation, there’s less labour and restoration work, leading to cost savings.
  • Faster Completion: Projects are often completed more quickly than traditional methods, reducing downtime.
  • Environmental Impact: Fewer disturbances to the ground mean a smaller environmental footprint.
  • Durability: Trenchless methods often result in stronger, more durable pipe systems that resist future issues.

How Trenchless Technology Works

  1. Inspection: We begin with a CCTV survey to assess the condition of your water main.
  2. Access Point Creation: Small entry and exit points are established to access the damaged pipe.
  3. Pipe Lining or Bursting: Depending on the issue, we may reline the existing pipe or replace it entirely using pipe bursting techniques.

Long-Term Benefits

  • Enhanced Water Flow: Trenchless repairs can improve water flow and pressure.
  • Reduced Leakage Risks: Newer materials and seamless installation reduce the risk of future leaks.
  • Extended Lifespan: Trenchless repairs can extend the life of your water main system.

When it comes to diagnosing issues within your water main system, Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) surveys are an invaluable tool. These surveys allow us to visually inspect the interior of water pipes and drainage systems without the need for disruptive excavation work. By inserting a high-resolution camera into your water main, we can identify problems with precision and accuracy.

The Diagnostic Power of CCTV

CCTV surveys are a cornerstone of our diagnostic process because they provide a clear, live feed of your water main’s condition. This technology enables us to:

  • Detect Blockages: We can spot and locate blockages caused by debris, tree roots, or other obstructions.
  • Identify Damage: Cracks, fractures, and collapses within the pipes are visible, allowing for targeted repairs.
  • Assess Pipe Condition: We evaluate the wear and tear on your pipes, which is crucial for preventive maintenance.

Advantages of Using CCTV Surveys

  • Non-Invasive: CCTV surveys negate the need for digging, preserving your property’s aesthetics and integrity.
  • Cost-Effective: By pinpointing the exact location of issues, we minimise the scope of repair work, saving you time and money.
  • Preventative Insight: Regular CCTV surveys can catch potential problems early, preventing major repairs down the line.

Issues Uncovered by CCTV

  • Infiltration: Water entering from the surrounding soil indicates potential pipe breaches.
  • Exfiltration: Conversely, water escaping the system can erode the foundation and cause sinkholes.
  • Corrosion: We can assess the extent of pipe corrosion, which could lead to leaks or bursts.

CCTV surveys are an essential part of maintaining the health of your water main system. They provide us with the detailed information needed to make informed decisions about repairs and maintenance, ensuring that we address the root cause of any issue. If you’re experiencing water main problems, or if you want to take a proactive approach to your property’s water infrastructure, consider scheduling a CCTV survey. It’s a smart step towards safeguarding your water system’s longevity and reliability.
