for washing down paving and other areas, the
supply can be used to automatically top us pools
and water features and even swimming pools.

an opportunity to economically install lighting
cables in the trenches taken out for the distribution
pipework and ISC can also carry out this work and
install lighting fittings where required.

building foundations, caused by contracting clay

and especially trees, draw out all the soil moisture
