Water main replacement

Water mains feeding the complex, tee off to each floor, and then each apartment.
Notice the By Pass at the base of the pipe, both water mains were live until the last unit was changed over.
This giving every unit uninterrupted water supply through the time of the work on site, (37 working days)

Water main replacement

Every floor has an isolation valve, and every apartment has an isolation valve. Making maintenance easy. The best thing about this is, if you are getting flooded out from the apartment above, and no one is home, you can walk up stairs and turn the water off to the apartment above.

Water valves isolating each floor, are on a union system, making replacement easy.
