Fletcher Plumbing & Co Pty Ltd owns and operates a Vermeer Evacuator to undertake non-destructive excavation.
Non-destructive excavation is used to excavate in high risk areas such as underground power and fibre optic cables. It can be used to safely excavate holes without the risk of damaging underground services.
The evacuator uses high pressure water to cut away the ground while the vacuum suction removes all loose ground and excess water. The result is a pot hole with no mess and no chance of disturbing any underground assets.
Evacuators can be used to complete the following tasks:
- Physical location of underground assets
- Cleaning out of pits or wells
- Pot holes for sign posts
- Boring under paths.
Smoke testing is the process of forcing non-toxic smoke filled air into the drain and/or sewer system. The smoke under pressure will fill the line and any connections. Whether in the drainage or sewer system, breaks or illegal taps in either or both will allow the smoke to escape and surface through the ground or pipe work quickly and thereby reveal the source of the problem.
Smoke tests are effective, no matter the soil type, surface type or the depth of the lines tested.
