Live Service Insertion
Live Service Insertion is the preferred replacement method for renewing gas services with PE.
Using the FOAMPACK™ system, our Contract Service offers the technique for services up to 2” in diameter operating at low pressure.
Live Service Insertion allows gas services to be renewed without interrupting the mains supply and without having to excavate in the road or footpaths; all that is needed is one small trench just outside the building to gain access to the service.
Advantages of using this technique include:
Substantial cost savings as a repair or cut-off method
Minimal reinstatement costs
Significant safety benefits resulting from operatives not working on the highway
