Why were Bregan MainsFlow called out?
Bregan MainsFlow was informed that a customer at Tandy Close, Bedford had an emergency no water situation due to a burst water supply that occurred whilst the gas board were on site.
Location: Tandy Close, Bedford
Work Carried Out:
Bregan MainsFlow Ltd attended the emergency call out at approximately 15:00 to ascertain the issue and try and get the customer back on water.
Day 1: The onsite Bregan Mainsflow team undertook an initial risk assessment followed by a CATV and Genny Survey to assess the risk of utility strikes. Once completed the team excavated around the gully pot in the bush at the point of entry as this was where they believed the water was coming from. Once the leak was located within the wall at the point of entry, it was ascertained they would have to perform a by-law breakthrough to get the customer back on water. A Tee-Piece had to be cut out to install a temporary above ground supply with a view of retuning in the morning to complete the permanent fix with correct tooling and materials.
The team left site at approximately 20:30 leaving the customer with water.
Day 2: The Bregan Mainsflow team returned the following day to undertake the correct bylaw breakthrough and connect. They then had to excavate further to renew the pipework that was teed outsider and feed the utility room that had been disconnected temporarily the previous evening. The internal pipework inside the property was renewed to a permanent finish. A new internal stop cock was installed removing the two old, inoperable, existing internal stop cocks.
Timeframe: 2 Days
