Aqua Analytics provides reliable fire hydrant and valve condition assessment services in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, the Northern Territory, Western Australia and Tasmania. Our services will ensure your water main will effectively shut down during a crisis to prevent damage to nearby properties. We will also test your fire hydrants and make sure they will be able to deliver water at the correct pressure and flow when needed.
Using a combination of field testing and data analysis, we can accurately assess the condition of your reticulation valves and help you make informed decisions about repairs or replacements. Our team will provide comprehensive reporting on critical valve function and life expectancy, fire hydrant flow and pressure and required maintenance and repairs.
Valves are one of the most important components of water infrastructure. It’s vital they can operate efficiently during times of need. Aging water infrastructure can lead to an increased risk of valve failure, so it’s important to ensure your valves remain in good working condition.
At Aqua Analytics, we understand the value of routine valve maintenance, assessment and testing. Some of the benefits of this include:
If you’d like to arrange a consultation with our team, please get in touch today.
Water utilities should develop programs to regularly undertake valve condition assessment and maintenance to improve organisational knowledge about their valve inventory.
Broken, closed, missing or seized valves can significantly impact water main failure events that require emergency shutdown. Better water network knowledge and asset intelligence are critical for the management of these disruptive events. Other reasons why a valve condition assessment should be undertaken are to:
Understanding the condition of your critical valves enhances your ability to control water flow within the distribution system effectively. It also allows you to extend valve life and quickly locate valves in the field when operation is required. Valve condition assessment enables:
We use a range of specialised equipment to undertake our valve condition assessment and fire flow testing works.
Using fire hydrant testing to understand the condition of your hydrants allows minimal interruption when they are required at critical times. It is also important that, in times of need, these critical water assets can deliver the required pressures and flow rates to local regulations and standards. We utilise smart technologies to undertake hydrant inspections and assessments, leveraging the power of GIS integration solutions such as ESRI ArcGIS and Trimble Water. Other aspects of our hydrant inspections are:
We can also provide active leak detection, pipeline condition assessment or water loss management solutions.
Proactive valve condition assessment can assist with worker health and safety. Workplace health and safety is the biggest priority of most water utilities in Australia and New Zealand. Undertaking a valve condition assessment program enhances the safety of your field teams since the mechanical operation of valves will significantly reduce the risk of valve operator injuries. Improve the safety of your teams by implementing a structured valve condition assessment program.
Valve condition assessment and hydrant flow testing projects are very beneficial for identifying and repairing discrepancies in enterprise datasets. If you want to improve your water network performance, reduce customer impacts and increase operational reliability, contact us today to discuss our valve and hydrant condition assessment options throughout Australia and New Zealand.
