Trees and shrubs suck up large amounts of water from the soil. When the soil becomes dry, equalising pressure is created which causes moisture to move to nearby dryer soil (a process known as matric suction). Soil movement can cause underground tanks to shift resulting in cracks and disconnections which are expensive to fix.
By encapsulating the underground tanks with our barrier you can control the moisture of the surrounding soil and prevent root ingress and prevent it moving.
Pipe Wrap Barrier Uses
Control moisture for clay soil
Control moisture levels for reactive soils, to stabilise them and prevent underground tank movement
Avoid costly repairs
Our underground barrier prevents tank movement, so you won’t need to spend thousands of dollars repairing breakages
Prevent local pollution
By stabilising your underground tank, you will avoid spillages and prevent the local area from becoming polluted
No more cracked tanks or pipes
With your tank firmly in place, you won’t have to worry about disconnections or breakages.
