Line-Stopping will eliminate the need to employ obsolete and costly methods of dealing with valve and hydrant problems, as well as the general maintenance of water or other liquid distribution systems used by municipalities. It eliminates complete water system shutdowns that create major service disruptions while needed repair or replacement work is being done. Ordinary methods are time consuming and costly, not only from repair man-hour costs, but also from lost revenues. Simply stated, when water flow stops, revenue stops.
Line Stopping Procedure
ELIMINATE SHUTDOWNS AND . . .
LIABILITY that is inherent in service disruptions along with the possible expensive lawsuits,which could follow from the lack of water. Hospitals, manufacturing plants,restaurants and homes ALWAYS need water. The legal precedent has already been set where utilities have been SUED and LOST due to planned maintenance shutdown.
OVERTIME because routine work can be done under pressure and during normal working hours instead of nights or on weekends.
DELAYS in getting a system back in service such as:
UNKNOWN COSTS since costs are fixed there is no concern about breaking jammed valves and pipe diameter differentials.
LACK OF FIRE PROTECTION due to main shutdowns. Since the system stays under pressure and is no drained, there is no down time to wait for the system to recharge.
