Prevent Disaster With CCTV Pipeline Inspection

The consequences of Large Diameter Pipe failure

Do you know the major risks and consequences of a large diameter pipe failure?

Each day, thousands upon thousands of gallons of water are transported across counties and municipalities via large diameter pipes worldwide. As one of our most important resources, these water networks play a vital role in ensuring millions of people have access to fresh water, as well as a safe and dependable way to transport raw and wastewater materials. When working properly, large diameter pipes perform this function flawlessly, standing up to the demands of constant transport, and staying tough for years. However, should a large diameter pipe become compromised by corrosion or other forms of degradation there is a significant risk at play, especially if this damage is left undetected long enough for a full or partial failure to occur. Water main breaks can cause millions of dollars worth of damage to the surrounding area in record time, and result in serious hardships for the local community such as traffic shutdowns, property damage, and more.
