Potable Water Bypass for
Yarra Valley Water

Layflat innovation for Water Bypass

Yarra Valley Water (YVW) is engaged in a steady program of regular maintenance works for the water distribution pipelines that supply the residents in their catchment areas. Some of these pipes are over 100 years old and are cracked and leaking.

When the utility identifies water mains that need servicing or relining, there are 2 important considerations:
1) that the works are carried out efficiently and effectively,
2) that their customers are not without water while maintenance works are underway.

Together, YVW and Crusader Hose developed the Pureline system, using the Aqualine hose to create a temporary water bypass. Customers along the street for up to 2 km were connected to a potable bypass hose so that works could proceed on the damaged pipeline without interrupting household supply.

“This bypass system incorporates T fittings at 9m intervals so that there is a point from which to feed into each household.” said Francois Steverlynck, Managing Director of Crusader Hose.

Key Learnings:

  • System can provide residents with an uninterrupted potable water supply for weeks at a time
  • Maintenance works to proceed without rushing
  • System is compact, easy to handle and install
  • Rapid and easy set up
