What is Termite Reticulation (Termite Piping) System?
A Termite Reticulation System or Piping System is a process of underground piping installation that’s done in and around a building. Its purpose is to provide long-lasting protection against termites to buildings. The major benefit of this system is that it can be recharged repeatedly with a termiticide (Anti Termite Solution) – via specialized junction boxes installed across walls using pressure measure gauge pumps.
Who should use Reticulation System?
Termite Reticulation System can be used on a new building or one that’s undergoing renovations – such as an extension. A reticulation system is often a requirement for building owners wanting to build a termite-free building or who hate to lose a lot of wooden interiors by termite attack.
How did Reticulation System work?
Indian standard 6313 Part II stipulates that there has to be a rechargeable termite barrier between the foundation of constructions and under each poured concrete slab. In this case, we would lay a termite reticulation line underneath the slab where the slab meets the flooring, so that it’s rechargeable when the chemical meets the end of its life cycle. We connect it up and re-fill the line through the junction box installed. The termiticide goes in at a certain pressure, through the line, and disperses to form a termite-treated zone under the concrete slab.
