Complete Tapping Service has developed a patented solution to minimise shutdowns on water and wastewater mains. Pipeline & Civil Ltd can assist you in New Zealand with these services. 

The AquaStopTM process allows any main (80mm – 150mm) to be isolated at the point it needs to be; minimising the size of the isolated section of the main, meaning fewer houses and properties are left without water during routine maintenance work or connections.

Utilising the AquastopTM system a 65mm under pressure tapping is performed and a rubber packer is then inserted into the live main by Pipeline & Civil. This packer is then expanded with water to fill the inside of the main creating a shut-off.

Utilising the CTS AquastopTM system provides many benefits including:

  • Eliminates finding valves that operate close to where the works are to be carried out.
  • Maintains pipeline integrity and maintains fire protection.
  • AquaStopTM can be completed in less than one hour, from the assembly of the clamp/valve on the main to completion of the Line Stop for use on 80mm to 150mm pipes.
  • Eliminates supply disruption to customers, backflow contamination and water quality issues.
  • No loss of fire protection as the water main is charged frequently.

Our AquastopTM packages include:

  • Flanged offtakes to principles requirements to AS 4181.
  • DR Brass Ball Valve.
  • PE finishing plug.
  • Pressure testing of connection prior to drilling to WSAA Code of Practice.
  • GPS Co-ordinates of Line Stop fitting.
  • Water main marker tape to clamp.
  • Blocking as necessary to support the clamp assembly.

Can be tailored to suit your local requirements.
