A water and gas utility finder can help make your Melbourne construction or excavation project faster and safer. This professional can provide you and your crew with the most accurate and updated information regarding the location of utility maps.
This is especially important in Melbourne where the underground network of water and gas lines is complex. You and your crew should be careful during each excavation activity. Accidentally hitting the water lines can release high pressure and propel debris. It’s even more dangerous when it comes to gas pipes. Tampering them (which causes leaks) can lead to fires and explosions.
Getting the complete picture
This modern city’s surface looks orderly. However, the picture’s totally different underground. The network of water, electrical, telecommunication lines and gas pipes are intricate and ever changing.
Perhaps you already have a utility map on the table. However, this might not be the most accurate and most recent. That’s because the network always changes because of natural and man-made causes. Maybe there are recent projects made in the area. Or, due to natural slight shifts, the location of pipes and cables might have already changed.
That’s why a complete picture (accurate and updated) is important. Professionals can help you with that by using equipment to detect the pipes today. Then, they will provide you with the information and map so you can commence excavation. This is a certain way to ensure safety during excavation or construction.
The answer to better efficiency
The progress gets slow when there are worries about accidentally hitting the pipes. After all, it’s the safety of your crew. You also don’t want to cause interruptions and inconveniences to the local residential and commercial community.
But with an accurate utility map, your crew can work a lot faster. Although they still need to observe some safety precautions, this is a lot better alternative than slow and blind digging.
In addition, avoiding hitting all the pipes can make the project faster because there will be no delays. That’s because tampering the utilities can lead to legal complaints (which is really time-consuming). This also leads to temporary (or even permanent) halt of the project. An accurate and updated utility map will help you prevent that from happening.
