24" Double Line Stop of C900 PVC

Rarely is there ever a need to bypass pump a sewer force main. With line stops and bypass hot taps, you can typically let the pumps already in the system complete the bypass pumping for you. Pacific Flow Control completed this 24″ double line stop on a C900 PVC sewer forcemain complete with 2EA 24×16 C900/FL bypass wet taps in Rocky View, Alberta. For this 0.8KM bypass, we used the new 24″ infrastructure while the contractor completed the new 45° 24″ size-on-size tie-ins. This bypass was in place for 14 calendar days. We only used 40 FT of temporary pipe and never started a pump or vac truck. Give me a call or an e-mail if you’d like me to send some example schematics or videos.
