Inspection is Preventative Maintenance
Water pipeline failures can cost municipalities, operators, and members of the surrounding area millions of dollars in damage. To prevent damage caused by failures of water mains, inspecting your pipelines regularly is vital. Groundwater can slowly degrade pipelines over time when ground water containing salt comes in contact with your water lines. Even the most robust pipelines will begin to deteriorate, given enough time and poor external coatings. Using the right tools and a regular inspection schedule with a team like PICA's is your best guarantee to ensure your pipes are in safe and efficient working order. That way, you can avoid pipeline failures and make informed decisions regarding replacement and repairs.
