Private power lines and need to be regularly inspected and properly maintained. If you notice any of these common issues you will need to organise repairs or tree trimming as soon as possible.
Over time, crossarms may deteriorate, split or become loose, leaving powerlines at risk of sagging, clashing or falling down.
Pole fittings and attachments that are loose, frayed or deteriorating are a serious safety and bushfire risk.
Powerlines or wires hanging too low can clash and lead to bushfires. Low wires may also breach the minimum height safety requirements.
If insulation is missing or damaged, the exposed wire may be live and contact could be fatal. Damaged wires must be replaced.
