Go Wild Water Park Opens in Umhlanga with Multiturf Artificial Grass Throughout


DURBAN, South Africa — The country’s newest and most eagerly anticipated family fun venue opened to the public on Dec. 5, an event made possible in part by the versatile, low-maintenance artificial turf provided by Multiturf, a local company that serves all of South Africa. With the launch of the Go Wild water park at the Gateway shopping center, Durban locals and visitors alike gain a great new way to cool off and have some well-deserved fun. Multiturf’s artificial grass is a key component of the new theme park, with an underlying shock pad system making for safe places for kids of all ages to run around and a lack of dirt, dust, and mud keeping the park’s water clean, clear, and refreshing.

“We’re happy to report that we have successfully completed one of our most important projects yet, providing artificial turf for the brand new Go Wild theme park at the Gateway shopping center,” Multiturf owner Phill Hunter said, “This wonderful new park is going to make the Durban area an even more enjoyable place to visit or to live. We’re proud of what we have accomplished alongside the others who have made this opening possible and happy to report that early impressions have been extremely positive.”

Coming in essentially tied for second with Cape Town in terms total metropolitan-area population in South Africa, the greater Durban area is one of the country’s top destinations for tourists. With dozens of beautiful beaches and an especially pleasant climate to offer, the city and its surroundings have long enjoyed the favor of visitors from elsewhere in South Africa, the rest of the continent, and the world in general.

While a number of communities in the area attract such attention, the town of Umhlanga just north of Durban itself is a perennial standout. The just-opened Go Wild theme park at the Gateway shopping center there will therefore be a major draw in an area which already sees steady tourism, with locals being just as excited about the opening of the new attraction.

As one of South Africa’s leading artificial turf companies, Multiturf has been a key contributor to making the brand new water park an assured success. Multiturf experts specified and installed artificial grass throughout the new park, laying down safe, water-friendly surfaces that are comfortable to walk upon and entirely maintenance free.

At the same time, artificial grass price benefits also kept the up-front costs of the project down, allowing its owners to stretch their resources even further in creating a park that will keep tourists and Durban-area locals entertained for many years to come. Those interested can learn more about the many advantages of Multiturf’s products at the company’s website.

Ben Franklin Plumbing Launches Trenchless Repair Benefits Awareness Campaign


(DeKalb , Illinois)– Based on year-old reports from authorities within the plumbing industry, average sewer line repair projects carried out using traditional methods can potentially run homeowners $5,000 or more beyond basic remediation costs. This price surge leaves a number of consumers searching the market for more cost-effective alternatives. In light of this development, a spokesperson for Ben Franklin Plumbing Northern Illinois ( has launched a campaign to better inform area residents of the benefits of trenchless sewer repair.

Said the company spokesperson, “We’re the northern Illinois area’s leaders in sewer repair, and our team specializes in trenchless technology and techniques. We’ve been offering this service here in the greater Chicago area for more than 14 years. That’s not combined experience; it’s actual years of training and installation. Despite the many advantages of no-dig repairs and the widespread use of these methods, it has recently come to our attention very few home and property owners are aware this option is available to them. We hope to change that.”

According to the previously-mentioned report, additional expenses associated with conventional strategies stem from post-repair restoration of streets, paved driveways, sidewalks and other hardscape or landscape features. Though per-foot costs of trenchless repairs were considerably higher than traditional techniques during this technology’s early days on the market, this aspect has leveled off over the years. Both pipe bursting and pipe lining now fall into price ranges comparable to those of more invasive approaches.

Trenchless techniques entail creating either a single or double access hole through which repairs will be implemented. Pipe lining, or cured-in-place pipe, is a repair method in which a flexible pipe is pulled through the existing one and left to harden, eliminating leaks and cracks. Pipe bursting, another widely used trenchless tactic, is carried out by simultaneously installing a new pipe and breaking away its damaged counterpart. Further information can be found at

Concluded the Ben Franklin spokesperson, “We’ve performed hundreds upon hundreds of trenchless repair projects over the years and have been a certified Perma Liner Platinum Installer Member since 2009. Our work comes with a lifetime warranty as well as the experience, efficiency and professionalism for which our company has become known. On top of that, customers gain the added benefit of not having a great deal of out-of-pocket follow-up repairs to deal with. We encourage anyone in the northern Illinois region in need of our services to contact us for a free estimate.”
