Drain Tech recently completed a 150mm Rising Main installation for B & R Couch Pty Ltd, Brucknell, via Timboon
As well as providing four hydrant risers, the Main also inter connected the existing irrigation system on a recently purchased property with the Home Farm system. After installing swing-check valves on the new property’s bores the Main can operate in both directions by either supplying the hydrants or working in reverse to fill a supply dam near the pump station.
Drain Tech used tapping band style hydrant risers for the first time. Traditionally, risers have either been powder coated one piece steel or heavy cast iron style. Drain Tech Director, Richard Gloyne stated his preference for the new style. “A lot easier to fit and it works well with our pipe slinging system”.
