If you put off water main inspection throughout 2020 due to the global delays and uncertainty that affected many of us, there’s no time like the present to get back on track and find out if there are any hidden surprises lurking beneath the surface. At PICA Corp, we know firsthand just how important regular line inspection and maintenance are when it comes to preventing the multi-million dollar disasters that make headlines each season.
With the help of our experienced pipeline experts and highly refined CCTV technology, taking a closer look beneath the surface is easier than ever before. Back by nearly 30 years of experience, PICA Corp is a world leader in NDT pipeline inspection, including using CCTV technology. Learn more about the benefits of regular inspection, as well as our services, below.
To Protect, You Must Prevent
It’s easy to fall out of routine when it comes to the regular maintenance and upkeep of your water lines, especially when you may not be able to observe any exterior damage. The reality, however, is, that only in-line inspection gives you a foolproof method of taking an in-depth look at the actual state of your pipes. While it can be tempting to skip an inspection or two, especially with business flow recovering from significant slowdowns, failing to stay on top of things can result in catastrophic damages to your equipment and the surrounding community. Using the right tools and staying on top of a dedicated inspection schedule conducted by a leading team like PICA’s, helps to mitigate the risk of sudden failures, promote safety, and ultimately extend the life cycle of your pipes for years to come.

CCTV Inspection At PICA
When you need to take a closer look, CCTV inspections are one of the best assets to have on your side. PICA’s IBAK crawlers and PTZ cameras are suited for pipes in the range of 8″ to 16″ diameter; and, for further convenience, we have modified the IBAK to be able to inspect pipes as large as 78″. For smaller pipes, PICA uses the IBAK Mini Lite push-rod camera, which provides exceptional quality that allows you to easily detect blockages, cracked pipes, joint issues and stuck valves.
PICA Corp is proud to offer comprehensive inspection services that help keep your pipes safe, protect your budget, and prevent disasters before they have the chance to start.
