Flow stopping a water main enables live sections of main to be isolated for maintenance or repair thus minimising the disruption to customers’ supplies. WASK Aquastop can be used to line-stop cast and ductile iron, PE and PVC water pipes up to 8″ (200mm) diameter and 8 bar pressure.

Aquastop – Key Features & benefits…

• Lightweight and compact in comparison to alternative equipment, resulting in ease and speed of handling and ability to work in spaces with restricted access including vertical pipework.
• Small diameter access holes result in reduced cost of consumable cutters as well as closure fittings and allows quicker installation than conventional methods.
• The ability to localise a repair ensures a minimum disruption to customers. The distance between isolation valves may be long and in this case, the number of customers deprived of water can be considerable.
• Automatic, pressure balanced headwork means that the effort required to launch and inflate the Sarco Aqua Hydro® bags remains low even with increasing or fluctuating pressures, allowing the operator to concentrate on the job in hand.
• Use of bypass allows minimum or no interruption to supply across stop off on the majority of mains, including single fed mains.
• Sarco Aqua Hydro® bags are inflated utilising the water pressure from the main. No additional power source is required for operation of the unit. The danger of over or under inflating the bags is eliminated.
• Equipment is easily sterilised before each use and is made from non-corroding materials.
