13666, Dural – Vandalised Garden Tap
A customer in Dural rang to say their garden tap had been vandalised over the weekend. The pipe was leaking badly and had been turned off at the main supply.
When we arrived we found that the stake was destroyed and the copper pipe had been torn from the ground and was missing. The customer requested that we come up with a “vandal-proof” solution since the tap needed to remain where it was and was still required.
We repaired the copper plumbing water pipe using weldless pressfit fittings and supplied a galvanised metal post which we set in two bags of rapid set concrete. We then attached a security tap with removable handle and secured it and the pipe to the post.
We tested all works and the customer was happy and is now back in business.
