Termite Treatment through piping method/Termite tubing system also known as Pipe Reticulation system is a revolutionary system designed to effectively treat the area under concrete slabs or before flooring is done . It is system which is replenishable unlike older termite treatment methods. The reticulation system is a network of underground specially designed pipes( rubberised membrane) to induce anti-termite chemical uniformly throughout your Building’s foundations. Regulating the chemical flow, this system helps to protect against invasion by termites in future which would otherwise enter from the outside of your home or from under the floor. We recommend Termite reticulation system for Anti termite treatment because it is extremely durable and gives a very robust protection to a new building and works as a highly effective termite shield for years together. Our Anti termite Reticulation system is being widely used in Indian construction industry including new homes, offices and other commercial buildings.
How it work?
It involves lying of special flexible, continuously perforated 16 mm dia pipe along the internal periphery of the building and center of the flooring using grid design (every 5 feet). This placement of perforated pipes (made of rubberised membrane) is done along the flooring just before laying of the sand bed/sub grade or before fixing the floor marble/tiles. This perforated pipe has emitters fabricated in them which allow uniform distribution of termiticide under the entire flooring . These emitters distribute chemical at a pre calculated rate, and reduces the risk of any area being untreated. Use of continuously perforated porous pipe ensures no debris , clay or concrete will block the pipe and make it ineffective. The pipe structure pushes the substrate aside and prevents clogging.
periodical recharging of termite chemical. Generally these junction boxes are installed on the outer walls in a concealed manner or match the aesthetics of the building exteriors. Refilling points are installed along the external wall so that the termiticide could be applied from outside the building without causing any disturbance to the occupants.
Termite control chemical emulsions are induced at low pressure through these junction points (refilling points). Low pressure ensures even distribution of termiticide emulsion at all delivery points and finally to entire network of porous pipe. Tests have been conducted on our system and it has been proved that over a 30 metre distance there is complete and uniform distribution of termiticide along the entire length of a single line system. No other Anti termite treatment method can match these results.This creates a continuous chemical barrier under the floor and impede termites invasion through soil and deny access to the structure of the building. Balancing of network of reticulate piping system is an important component of any termite Pipe reticulation treatment method.
Recharging of porous piping system
The system must be recharged @ 5 lit. per sq. mtr. of the Horizontal surface area. This must be repeated every 3-4 years to give ongoing protection against termite entry to your home. However regular termite inspections are recommended as an integral part of a Termite Management System.This system has been designed robustly to achieve a minimum Service Life of over 35 years. What more, this entire job of floor networking, installation and testing is done by our trained and experienced team of technicians who have specially been trained for this job and have years of hands on experience in construction industry and are well versed with various aspects of construction stages.
The advantages of termite Reticulation treatment
- No excavation or Drilling the holes in floor to inject termite chemical is required.
- Tedious work of removing the furniture in the area is not required.
- No pungent smell of the termite chemical is released in the premise.
- No exposure of insecticides to occupants of the building.
- Installation of piping system is warranted for 20 years with refilling every Third year.
- Unlike conventional termite injection method there is even distribution of the chemical under the floor.
- No Stains discoloring or marks on the costly floors.
- The cost benefit ratio when compared with traditional methods of termite treatment, over longer periods is considerable as recharge costs are significantly lower than a drill and fill method.
- Construction contractors and builders are not required to make special provisions for the Anti termite Pipe reticulation system during preparation for construction and no construction activity is held up.
Thereafter rough sketch diagram for piping network is prepared to ensure minimal interference with other building procedures. You can obtain the copy of our plan and discuss suitable delivery (refill) points and consult with your Builder/Architect/contractor. Once the plan is approved and estimate approved, we set date for start of installation and end date for procedure. Once the job is complete and system recharged with the chemical, we hand over the site network plan to the customer for his future reference.
