Kirrawee Sewerage Leak
Reported problem - After reports of an urgent blocked drain and a sewerage leak in the front yard of a unit complex, our SPS plumbing technicians attended to conduct an inspection of the site and plan for an effective solution to rectify the problem.
Works completed to resolve the problem - Numerous issues were discovered by our SPS Plumbing technicians in which a scope of works took place. In one section of the strata complex, excavation down to the main line was insisted upon by our technicians in order to replace approx 5-7m of 100mm PVC pipework. This was found to be in urgent need of replacement as major dislodgements and roots had been revealed within the line. Our SPS plumbers then cut a section of the concrete out, excavated down approximately 1.3m, exposed the collapsed section of pipework and replaced up to 1-1.5m of pipework.
On completion of the works, an inspection point was raised for future access to blockage inspections. Blue metal was installed to support all pipeworks and the affected area reconcreted. Our SPS plumbing technicians handled the site with care, cleaning all waste leaving the complex clean and tidy.
