Insta-Valve 250 Keeps Hospital’s Water On During Emergency Line Repair

Asheville, NC — Mission Hospital, an 815-bed hospital in Asheville, NC, was conducting construction in the driveway of the maternity ward entrance of the hospital. Unfortunately, a construction-related leak occurred on the water line and could not be isolated because of a damaged existing valve. Repairs could not take place without shutting off service to the hospital.

The local Asheville Department of Water Resources crew was able to install a temporary repair clamp, but the hospital needed a more permanent solution. So the hospital’s Director of Construction and Maintenance reached out to Vannoy Construction, the general contractor on the project, to find a solution to fix the leak without disrupting water service to the hospital.
