How to prevent sinkholes by using PICA Inspection services

The transportation of drinking water and wastewater is vital for numerous municipalities and industries. Ensuring the pipes that carry that water are in prime condition is critical for the safety of local communities, workers, and businesses. An unexpected pipe failure can spell disaster for your operations. The best way to prevent an unexpected pipeline failure is to perform regular inspections with a trustworthy and reliable provider like PICA Corp. Below, we will discuss why pipeline inspections are critical for your business and the many industries PICA Corp. services. Continue reading to find out more!


Protect Your Pipes with PICA

Prestressed concrete cylinder pipes (PCCP) are incredibly durable; however, they can gradually degrade. This degradation can occur due to the many corrosive elements found in groundwater that eventually can corrode through the pre-stress wires of the concrete pipe if cracks in the mortar allows the water to contact the wires. Once groundwater has penetrated that coating, the reinforcing wires and cylinder will be negatively impacted, leading to line breaks and failures. Regardless of what your PCCP lines transport, an unexpected failure can be dangerous and costly. Flooding, loss of service, mudslides and more can pose immense risks to your site, personnel roadways, and communities. To best protect your business and the local community, it’s vital that you perform regular inspections to ensure preventative maintenance can be used to repair an issue before it grows into a significant problem.
