Electrofusion pipe joints guaranteed? No problem.

Electrofusion pipe joints guaranteed? No problem.

At ControlPoint we can probably be accused of being a little obsessed with pipeline quality.  After all, it’s what we do best.

And no-one is more passionate about building leak-free pipelines right first time than our Chairman, Eric Bridgstock, an engineer with over 40 years polyethylene expertise.

Eric is now challenging the pipeline industry, and specifically, utilities, to accelerate efforts to achieve leak-free networks.

His open letter in February’s edition of Water Active (pg 20-21) outlines the case for polyethylene jointing and correct installation procedures.

“If we are really serious about reducing leakage on our pipelines, we need to address the root cause of failure,” says Eric.

Eric also launched a unique offer for asset owners: the ControlPoint Guarantee. Control Point Guarantee Logo

From 1 March 2015 ControlPoint will guarantee the quality of electrofusion installation of each joint for ten years up to £5,000, provided the contractor is using the ControlPoint system.

It is a first in the industry and will add fuel to the debate on electrofusion jointing quality.
