Trenchless Technology

Trenchless Technology

The use of Trenchless Technology for the installation of new, or the replacement or refurbishment of existing buried utilities have become well accepted over the past 25 years.

In this time many techniques have been developed including, soil displacement moles, pipe bursting, ramming, loose and tight fit insertion, directional drilling, pipeline relining and many more.

Today the techniques have become readily accepted and are often referred to as No-Dig or Limited Dig.  They are now not only associated with reduced disturbance to the surrounding ground surface of a specific project, but are also seen as cost saving, and environmentally friendly with benefits including; reduced excavation size, lower infill and landfill requirements, increased safety, less noise and traffic disruption and much more.

Lead Free Water

Lead Free Water
If your home was built before 1963. It may have lead pipes. You can find out by looking at you internal stop tap to check if it is lead. Unpainted lead pipes are dull, gray and soft. If you scrape the surface gently with a knife, you will see the shiny silver colour underneath.
There is NO lead present in water when it leaves the treatment works. However, in some areas the communication pipe, supply pipe and internal plumbing of your home can be made of lead. This can result in a higher level of lead being present in your tap water.
Lead can build up in the body accumulating in the skeleton. It can be harmful but pregnant women and children are more at risk. Studies have shown that it may also be a factor in child behavioural problems. It is therefore best to keep lead levels in water as low as possible.
