If you’ve recently purchased a block of land for developing, you will need to comply with Council requirements for your Development Application for your duplexes, units or for simply another housing block. One of the stipulations from Council is that you’re required to install another water meter or water meters, and how large your development is will dictate what size the water meter/s will need to be. These new water meters cannot be installed by your regular plumber, as it’s a specialist field that the everyday Plumber just isn’t experienced in, so most Councils and Water Authorities stipulate you need to enlist the services of a qualified licensed and inducted plumber.
At the “The Water Meter Guys” this is all we do; we have extensive experience on small to medium developments, installing water meters Gold Coast, water meters Brisbane and water meters Sunshine Coast Regions. We’re familiar with the requirements of all local Councils, including City of Gold Coast, Brisbane City Council and Logan Council, and Authorities such as Urban Utilities (Brisbane) and Unity Water (northern regions).
Sometimes the Council water main can be located on the opposite side of the road to your property which means an under -road horizontal bore needs to be done. This is where we bore under the road and install a new pipe to be used as a sleeve for the new water pipe. The process involves using a services locator to locate where the existing underground services are, excavating down to the Council water main and doing what’s called a “Live Tap” or “Hot Tap”, where we tap into the Council water main whilst it is live without shutting down the Council water main. We then run the new pipe from the Council water main through the sleeve provided up near ground level and install the new Water Meter.
We take care of all the Council Applications, which takes away the anxiety out of dealing with local authorities for you, for one set fee. All work is completed by an inducted Licensed Plumber well experienced in this type of work covered by all the appropriate Insurances.
