Easy to screed over.
Flat floors all around.
New pipe sits flush.
Easy to remove.
What Are the benefits?
✔ Concreters, easier & faster to screed & finish the slab , no pipes in the way!
✔ Lay mesh easier & safer during preparation without pipes being in the way whilst carrying, laying & cutting mesh around them.
✔ Achieve a better FFL due to no pipes being screeded around & no bending over & hand troweling around them to get them flat during the finishing process.
✔ This aids the tiler, whose bathroom & wet areas are drastically flatter to start with before the tiling process starts. No grinding or leveling needed.
✔ The framers can easily flick chalk lines to start the framing process. They can drag pre-fab frames over the slab without breaking pipes. Drastically improving their setup/build time.
✔ Scissor lifts can easily drive over slabs with multi-story builds.
✔ Leave screed buddy on the pipes during the build process, until they are ready in each room to fit off. Stops debris & rubbish getting stuck in pipes, stop broken pipes before the plumber gets to site.
What is the Screed Buddy system?
Screed Buddy System is a patented technology purposefully designed to remove protruding wastewater pipes from concrete foundations. Screed Buddy System is no ordinary cap, with its specifically manufactured formula that offers durability and flexibility.
Once installed, Screed Buddy System has a unique ability to indicate its location on the level concrete foundation after the concrete has been poured and it self-cleans.
Screed Buddy System is designed with an outer lip to provide clearance for suitable coupling and the ability to be fitted with minimal obstruction or cleaning.

The Buddy System removes all rises of wastewater pipes from concrete slabs from domestic, commercial to industrial sites reducing the chances of broken pipes, trip hazards and injuries. Screed Buddy System is revolutionizing safety in the workplace.
