Yarra Valley Water have significant issues with the renewal and maintenance of underground water pipes due to the corrosion over many years. It can take weeks to reline or replace these old pipes, and households do not want to have their water cut off during this maintenance period.
The issue was finding a solution to refurbish the pipeline without impacting customer supply.
Yarra Valley Water approached Crusader Hose and in conjunction developed the Pureline system using the Aqualine hose for temporary bypass. This system incorporates a bypass hose which is unrolled and connected to each household along the street whilst the mains water supply is repaired. Potable water can now be delivered to customers without maintenance interruption, in an efficient and cost-effective method.
