Ports & Airports Water & Sewage Services
Pipefix are located close to Portland Port and Poole Harbour and have worked extensively on both of these sites. We understand the volumes of water required to quickly fill the tanks on waiting vessels and have installed pumped systems and break pressure tanks designed for this purpose.
At Portsmouth Naval Base we worked in tidal culverts, repairing 12” cast iron mains in bomb proof reinforced concrete, so we are confident we can work in the most demanding environments.
Our experienced commercial pipe installers can work with most sizes and types of pipeline on your site. We offer emergency response services to trace and repair leaks or blockages and planned works to make changes to your existing system for refurbishment or upgrade projects.
In addition to pipe fitting our engineers can undertake minor civils works to install plinths, thrust blocks and GRP cabinets.
Every minute of down time on your site costs you money. We recognise this and are able to schedule our works around your shut-down or maintenance schedules.
We hold £10m Public Liability Insurance and are registered with CHAS, Exor and Constructionline.
Our engineers are security cleared and used to working on sites with strict access protocols and permit to work procedures, or in environments where it is only possible to work in very small windows of time – for instance tidal zones and busy traffic routes.
Our installation expertise includes:
- Water Mains from 25 – 300mm
- Incoming mains, ground services, water supply pipelines
- Water distribution pipework, all sizes and materials
- Control Valves, Water Meters
- Minor Civil Engineering Works
- Water Storage & Treatment
- Automated Meter Reading
- Sewage Treatment Plants
- Sewers and drains
- Soakaways, Storm Water Attenuation, Drainage Fields & Reed Bed Filter
We can comfortably manage any size of project up to the value of £450,000 and are able to provide budget costs, fixed price quotes or tenders as required.
Take advantage of our responsive or planned repair services. Our responsive repair vehicles carry light plant, leak detection equipment and a range of fittings that enable them to find and repair leaks on most common sizes and materials of pipework in ducts, underground, overhead and in reinforced concrete dock walls.
For less urgent repairs or on-going problems we can arrange a free consultation with one of our engineers to assess the situation and advise on ways forward and costs.

It has been a real pleasure dealing with Pipefix. They took on a difficult job and completed it without problems. We definitely intend to use them on other projects.
