    A Dam Important Flow For The Community

    Published on 25 July 2016, Monday, 7:25 PM

    Dams and reservoirs are important resources for a lot of rural communities. They have been used to provide and store water for agricultural purposes, industrial use, and households for hundreds of years. Ample high pressure water supply and water-main flow pressure make the difference for a thriving community in unforgiving Australian climates.

    Meeting strict National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) compliance and industry standards, Hydrostatic Test Pumps enable automatic pressure testing of pipeline systems, vessels and containers. The Hydrostatic Test Pumps are designed for the Plumbing and Civil industries to pressure test water-main, pipeline and sewer force mains for possible leaks. These pumps supply more efficient and effective readings against pipeline leakages, resulting in better reservoir and dam water supplies.

    Nirav Patel, Project Engineer from Leed Engineering came into the Kennards Hire Test & Measure specialist branch in Glandore, S.A. knowing exactly what he needed. Leed Engineering was commissioned to test water-main pressure of a newly laid pipeline infrastructure - running water from the Murray River, to a reservoir in the Barossa region. They needed NATAcompliant equipment to get an official reading and certification for the project.

    The Hydrostatic Pumps were perfectly suited for the task. Leed Engineering has been a happy customer of Kennards Hire Test & Measure, having hired the Hydrostatic Test Pump on three separate occasions.

    “The pump has been very good. There is never a problem with the equipment and it’s always fit for purpose. Kennards Hire Test & Measure has always delivered the equipment on time.” explained Nirav.

    Michael Hein, Kennards Hire Test & Measure Product Specialist, was pleased with the feedback from the customer.

    “Leed Engineering has been so impressed with the flow and high pressure of the pump. They’ve used the pump on 3 other projects now.” Michael said.

    This unit has been designed with ease of use in mind. Portable 14L water tank and conversion hoses enable use with an onsite reservoir.
