In the water industry, your quick and safe response to pipeline breaks and repairs is not just a priority; it’s a necessity. Maintaining a reliable clean water supply that supports good health and hygiene is crucial for the well-being of your surrounding communities.
Delayed action in the upkeep of your water infrastructure can result in substantial water loss, public disturbance, extensive damage, and costly repair. While valve maintenance will reduce the likelihood of valve damage, a pipe can become faulty for many reasons. Knowing why ruptures occur and having the appropriate equipment available will ensure employee safety, minimise damage and save you time.
However, challenges are inevitable, and there are many issues involved:
- Pipeline Breaks: Aging infrastructure, environmental factors including ground movement and corrosion, water pressure fluctuations, and unexpected accidents can lead to pipe breaks.
- Long Hours: Pipeline breaks can disrupt for many reasons and delays to a repair can affect water supplies to communities, cause property damage and safety hazards.
- Downtime Costs: While a water supply is interrupted, businesses and communities experience financial losses and overall inconvenience. If timely repair is neglected, these losses will build up and cause frustration within communities.
- Safety Concerns: Repairing pipelines can be dangerous work. Your labourers face potential risks of exposure to hazardous materials, confined spaces, and challenging weather conditions.
- Environmental Impact: The water industry is under increasing pressure to minimise environmental impact. Traditional repair methods often involve significant excavation, which can damage environments and disrupt communities.
