Plumb Guard - Electrical Safety Tester for use by non-electrical people doing maintenance on water pipes and meters. Proud WINNER of the Water Industry Safety Excellence Award at the AWA National Awards 2011 ceremony! See VIDEO below on how the HLP Plumb Guard works.
Plumb Guard is designed to be used by trades people working on buried water pipes or under road borers.
The unit is supplied with 2 large clamps and 1 earth stake. The clamps are attached to a metal water pipe. If the pipe is to be cut (for replacement or repair) the clamps should be placed each side of the cut. The earth stake is hammered into a good earth point.
The leads between the clamps and the unit are 5 meters long and the earth stake lead is 5 meters long. Once the unit is self tested, then attached to the pipe or under road borer, the unit will sound a loud alarm and bright flashing lights if the voltage on the clamps rises above 6V from the earth point. This enables detection of potentially dangerous voltagescaused by either bad or missing earth points and leaky mains wiring on customers premises or if an under road borer drills through any power cables.
Once alarmed, the unit will maintain the alarm until switched off.
Plumb Guard is housed in a solid waterproof case and is also shower proof from the front panel, so it can be used in the rain without any problems.
Powered by a rechargeable battery and comes with a AC 240V charger with the option of a 12 VDC car charger.
