Termite Reticulation System
Termite Reticulation Brisbane and Caboolture
Tanzer Pest control have been installing Termite Retriculation Systems in Brisbane, and Termite Retriculation Systems in Caboolture for over 15 Years.
Reticulation systems are pipes or a hose the runs along the side of your home either in soil or in most cases under a path, slab or pavers .
The pipe/hose has holes evenly spaced holes (like a garden soaker hose) Termiticide can then be pumped through the hose to create a treated zone to impede termite entry. The advantage long term is there is no need to lift pavers, trench soil, disturb gardens, or drill paths this means cost savings to you.
Depending on the Termiticide used (most cases Termidor), a re-treatment is not required for up to 8 years. There are a number of termite treatment reticulation systems available, we use the Termx Replenishment System. This termite reticulation Brisbane system features a flexible PVC chemical hose that is suitable for delivering Termiticides to the full under slab of new buildings, or as a perimeter barrier on existing buildings. Termx is the only reticulation system in the world that has the ability to have chemical foam put through it.
What does this mean to you?
During the process of a concrete slab setting after being poured, soil subsidence occurs (the soil under the slab subsides away from the concrete, leaving gaps and voids). This allows for common termite entry points as they are often around pipes. Normal injection of a liquid Termiticide cannot treat the whole cavity.
Foaming is a process of applying air from a compressor with a Termiticide and a foaming agent to create a foam that builds upon itself and expands to fill the void.
The Termx termite reticulation system has been designed to be simple with minimal parts to eliminate the chance of product failure under normal use. With a 50 Year warranty, Termx is best system for termite reticulation.

Termx Full Under Slab System
With the TermX full under Slab System and a TermX External Perimeter System you have the best protection. Even a slab built to AS2870 standard can crack enough to produce a 1.3mm crack, this is enough to allow Termite entry. Having a full under slab system gives you maximum protection.
The TermX System pipes are layed 300mm to 450mm apart over the entire area of the slab, this should incorporate an external system as well. If in the 10mt run a plumbing outlet or any service pipe is present, the TermX Pipe is looped around the service to resolve these problem areas. Termiticide surrounds the sides of the pipe giving complete coverage.
Once a 10mt length is installed in the prepared area, a junction box is then installed. For distances greater than 10mt a feeder line is used to bridge the distance. (See Diagram 1)
For larger slab areas, it may be necessary to run TermX 10 Pipe from alternative sides of the slab in order to provide adequate coverage (See Diagram 2)
Termx has a Codemark certification meaning that the system meets building codes and is a best industries practice product.
