Mains/supply pipe diversions

Most properties will still be fed by the original supply pipe installed when the properties were built. This can be a problem if that property is to be extended or improvements made to the surrounding grounds. This work will sometimes impede the line of the original pipe work and it is advisable to remove this from future obstacles in case of emergency repairs. This can be done by diverting new pipe work around proposed structures and away from future hazards. This work also covers mains extensions for extra requirements and demand from an existing supply.
