New Drainage lines in Aspley

Plumbaround Pty Ltd has started some rectification plumbing works on a commercial property in Aspley.  The rectification works are to the drainage below the building.  Whilst the property underwent previous renovations a short while ago, the drainage lines seem to have been forgotten and not completed to the Australian Plumbing and Drainage Standards AS3500.img_7669

As you can see by the photos, there a few existing waste lines running from the commercial kitchen and are not to the Plumbing and Drainage Standard and are clearly bowing from the excessive heat running through them.

We intend to supply and install Geberit High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) which is manufactured for the purpose of discharging wastewater from greasy wastes (restaurants etc), trade waste (factories), laboratory waste, sanitary and stormwater.

Geberit HDPE is temperature resistant and can be used in drainage systems for discharge temperatures up to 80° C  and therefore suiting the purpose of this commercial property.img_7662

The job is now set to commence after a slight delay in which we consulted with a Brisbane City Council Plumbing Inspector on most efficient way to achieve the best possible outcome for this commercial premises.  Can not believe it previously passed on a plumbing inspection!

Geberit HDPE pipes and fittings are UV stabilised, and are low on maintenance.  The HDPE pipe gives out a low heat loss through the pipe wall which prevents grease and fat from solidifying on its way out to the grease trap.

Geberit HDPE has a higher abrasion resistance than metal which gives it the edge over other materials in drainage applications where abrasion effects the life of the pipework and it is extremely resistant to chemicals and solvents. Itis the ideal material for use in Trade Waste, Greasy Waste, DWV, Stormwater, Laboratory or Industrial Drainage applications.

We will post some photos once the job is completed, it will look totally different!!

No hot water in Albany Creek

A slightly different hot water system sitting half in the wall

A slightly different looking hot water system sitting half in the wall!

No hot water!  There is nothing worse than having your hot water system burst and leak everywhere.  And also not having any hot water because of it!

Check out this existing hot water system replacement we have just attended too!  The previous hot water system was sitting half in the wall, not really something you see too often and not something that is up to the Australian Standards in Plumbing and Drainage these days!!

The tenant was lucky to notice the leaking water from the hot water system so quickly as to avoid damage to the property, especially in behind the walls.

Of course when we supplied and installed a new hot water system to the property, we upgraded it to comply with the Australian Plumbing and Drainage Standards.  It’s a shame we didn’t have any spare brick work on hand to patch up the hole in the wall.  Might be a little job down the track for the handyman.

The hot water system now complying with the Australian Plumbing Standards.

Help is only a phone call away when you are in need of hot water today.  Day or night, we are happy to answer your calls and attend to any situation.

We also enjoy coming across plumbing that is a little different, just like the above hot water system.  If you have seen something a little quirky please let us know about it or send us a pic!
