Wachs Water Services has seen an average initial water main valve operability of only 60% in more than 500,000 inspections nationwide - and that number is growing daily.
Pinpoint the precise location and verify the operational status of every valve in your water network. As many as 40% of water main valves installed in North American water distribution systems are operationally deficient or completely nonfunctional, and their exact location can be difficult to pinpoint due to outdated records and institutional knowledge loss.
Valve condition assessment services involve inspecting, operating, and assessing the mechanical condition and operational reliability of water main valves. These inspection programs can also encompass other vital water distribution system assets including hydrants, meters, pipelines, and access points.
