Broken fire mains are the tragedy before the tragedy

When a fire breaks out, emergency fire services need to be able to act decisively and effectively to protect lives. You simply cannot allow a situation where firefighters reach your site only to realise, in the moment, that their water access is compromised. If that’s the case, their fight was over before it began.

Some fire mains and hydrants erode over time, others are damaged during foul weather, hit by cars, or burst during water pressure spikes. Whatever the cause, we’re the solution.

As a site manager or council administrator, it is your responsibility to ensure that all fire mains under your purview are regularly maintained and fixed immediately after being damaged. It’s a heavy responsibility. But leave it with our qualified plumbers, and we’ll ensure your fire mains are always ready to go.

We repair all fire main components, including:

We do not compromise on quality

All of our leak detection, prevention and repair services aim to reduce property damage. But with fire mains repair, lives are quite literally on the line. We work with a clear-headed focus, relying on premium parts, industry-leading tools and decades of experience.
