Don’t Turn A Blind Eye To Corrosion: Using The HydraSnake To Spot Early Signs of Damage.

How to determine the condition and serviceability of distribution mains

With water and wastewater pipelines rapidly ageing across North America, the risk of sudden leaks and burst failures are higher than ever. Between 2012 and 2018, pipe breaks saw a 27% increase in occurrence, causing millions of dollars in damage, repair costs, and significant disruption to local communities. Partnering with an experienced analysis team like PICA Corp to perform regular condition assessments of your lines is one of the best ways to stay on top of the health of your pipes, as well as to avoid the headaches and misfortune that come with a sudden failure.
