A lightweight alternative can be this flexible balloon pipe plug. It is an innovative solution for sealing large sewer pipes that are only accessible through a manhole. These flexible pipe plug (also called flubber or sewer bag) can be used in various pipe profiles.
This type of flexible pipe plug is also available with a transfer or a bypass.
ATTENTION: Flexible pipe plug are less suitable for testing pipes.

All flexible pipe plug are supplied with 3 or 5 metres of chain and air hose and a manometer control set with a vent cock. The pressure gauge control set is equipped with an auto valve and/or a claw coupling.
Is the length of the filling hose and chain not sufficient? No problem at all! We fit extra lengths of filling hose and chain at an extra charge.
Flexible balloon pipe plugs are available in different types and sizes and with different filling pressures. These balloon pipe plugs are suitable for other pipes, such as egg-shaped, square or rectangular pipes. To select the right type of balloon pipe plug, it is important to know the characteristics that the sewer valve must fulfil. For instance, the back pressure behind the balloon pipe plug can be important. Also the duration of the sewer seal plays a role in choosing the right type. Of course, working safely in sewers is the most important starting point when working with pipe plugs.
De vuldruk, de diameter van de buis en de gladheid van de buis bepalen welke waterdruk de ballonafsluiter kan tegenhouden. LET OP: als er mensen moeten werken achter een ballonafsluiter dan kan dit levensgevaarlijke situaties opleveren. In het algemeen adviseren wij om niet achter een ballonafsluiter te werken. De wet- en regelgeving over het werken met ballonafsluiters verschilt per land. Wil je hierover meer weten? Neem gerust contact op met ons.Contact
