Concrete Steel Cylinder Line Stopping

What is Concrete Steel Cylinder Line Stopping?

Line Stopping CSC or PCCP Pipe is similar to line stopping other water main types. Unlike other pipe types, CSC has multiple different layers - each layer must be addressed separately - with the correct equipment and technique. After the tap is made - the appropriate line stopping equipment (Folding Head) must be used.
