PipeTracker Frequently Asked Questions
How do I access PipeTracker? Is there an App?
PipeTracker is available at https://pipetracker.yvw.com.au. There is no App to download, just navigate to the address in your browser!
You can add a home screen shortcut to the page on your iOS or Android device for quick access:
- Android / Chrome: Load web page, select ‘three dots’ in top right corner of Chrome, and select ‘Add to Home Screen’
- iPhone / Safari: Load web page, select ‘share’ icon, and select ‘add to home screen’
How do I navigate to a property?
There are a few ways to navigate within the PipeTracker page:
- Use the search box for a predictive address search
- The ‘Current Location’ icon zooms the map to your current location, based on your device’s location information – you may need to provide permission for this in your browser, and accuracy is device-dependant
- You can also navigate manually - pinch to zoom, tap and slide to pan the map
Why can’t I see any assets?
PipeTracker is designed to show assets when zoomed in to street-level. This keeps things lightweight and responsive. The map will switch from Open Street Map to a property boundary view once you zoom in, and this is where you will see detailed asset information.
Can I measure distance on the map?
- Basic measurement tools within the measurement menu allow point to point measurement, to assist with locating assets in the real world
- Measurement tools must be toggled on and off – once you have toggled a tool ‘on’, you can close the menu and tap points on the map to start measuring. Return to the menu to toggle the tool back off again afterwards
- When locating assets in relation to a property boundary, it is recommended that users measure from Boundary to Point to Boundary, to clearly display measurement results.
Can I see other asset types?
- By default, the map shows sewer assets only
- Filters allow the display of Sewer, Water, Recycled Water or all Yarra Valley Water assets on the map
- Each filter option includes a key to help users interpret the symbols on the map
- Assets are only displayed at a street or property level zoom.
- Water property connections are also not available on PipeTracker
How can I find additional asset attributes (length, depth, connection type)?
- In PipeTracker, the asset feature information is currently only available for Sewer House Connection Branches, and includes length, depth and connection type information.
- To access attribute information, press the <i> information icon, and then tap on the connection point.
- If you require additional attribute information, or attributes for other asset types, please consider use of the desktop-based YARRA VALLEY WATER Asset Map
