Burst water main – Tamworth. We were contacted by a commercial customer on an industrial estate in Tamworth.
There were issues with the water supply to their property. There was only a trickle coming in instead of the usual free flow.
And outside there was a puddle forming on the parking area near the bollards.
We expected a burst water main. We opened up the asphalt where the flooding had occurred and gained access to the pipes. And indeed, the pipe turned out to have a breakage. Luckily we came well prepared and were able to sort out the repair.
After clearing out the dirt and repairing the pipe we filled the hole back up. Now only to wait for some new asphalt to be put down.
Hands can be washed and toilets can be flushed again.
Problem solved and further issues prevented.
