Whether it's municipalities, firewater systems, national parks, power plants, or other industrial operations, proper maintenance and inspection procedures can save millions in repairs and downtime. It's not always easy: approximately 40% of the world's water pipelines are difficult to inspect due to their small diameter, internal deposits or challenging access. As a result the ravages of corrosion, leaks, gas pockets, deposits, and other issues often go undetected, which can result in unexpected downtime and costly reactive repairs.
