In the U.S., there are over 800,000 miles of public sewers. 80% of these sewers are 8″-15″, considered small diameter. These gravity sanitary and storm sewer pipes transport the majority of the most cities’ wastewater and are forced to take on increasing flow levels as new users are added to older systems. Sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs) and failures can have devastating impacts on your communities and the environment. Using small diameter inspection can pinpoint these potential failures.
Let us help you safeguard your assets by knowing what’s below.
Why inspect your small diameter pipe?
Small diameter pipes comprise a large portion of many sewer collection systems. Proper management, operation, and maintenance of these assets provides countless benefits to both the system owner and the communities served.
Small diameter inspection collects the most crisp, clear imagery showing you the condition of your critical 8″-12″ pipes. NASSCO certified coding provides condition grading used for rehabilitation planning and maintenance.
SOLO is an autonomous, small diameter inspection technology that removes the risks posed by manned entry. Safety is our first priority – protecting our personnel, your community, and the environment is at the forefront of our inspection processes. Our practices keep crews safer, with longer runs and less deployments, and prevent excess traffic disruption within your local neighborhoods.
Regular inspection and maintenance of your small diameter pipe increases the useful life of individual assets by identifying and prioritizing the pipes that need attention. Reduce maintenance costs by decreasing reactionary spending and identifying the assets that require proactive attention.
Shrink your Carbon Bootprint and leave less of a mark on the environment with inspect-to-clean methods. Lower your carbon emissions by 3 to 4 tons per mile of inspection over the course of a 240-mile inspection. Eliminating large box trucks and cleaning only as needed reduces emissions and water usage, saving time, money, and the world around you.
