About

AGRIAPIPE Pipe Cleaning, Building and Servicing Ltd.

Deteriorated, old pipe systems gradually cause greater and greater problems for their operators. This applies especially to underground pipe networks that are basically time bombs under our feet. Unexpected breakdowns can cause severe troubles in the operation and many times environmental damages also occur. To avoid such cases these old networks have to be constantly checked and care must be taken about their rehabilitation on time. When planning and implementing pipe rehabilitations the so called NO DIG procedures that do not necessitate open trenches to access the pipe network are rapidly gaining popularity.

Our company, AGRIAPIPE Pipe Cleaning, Building and Servicing Ltd. offers services to its partners in the fields of identifying and evaluating pipe network related problems, planning optimal troubleshooting solutions and also in executing these technologies.
