Who we serve

Municipalities and private water companies

Aquam Pipe Diagnostics provide a suite of comprehensive pipeline assessment and management solutions, enabling utilities to address some of their most complex challenges associated with an old and aging infrastructure.

We offer a nexus of technology and services to inspect pressurized water and wastewater pipelines, enabling a utility to apply the most effective strategy to accommodate their resource capabilities and budgetary constraints. All of our technologies are inserted into a pressurized water pipe therefore costly and disruptive shut downs are not necessary and the pipe can remain in service for the duration of the inspection.

Where internal resources and expertise are abundant within a municipality, we can offer a range of our technologies for purchase so that they can systematically assess their conveyance systems in house and in alignment with their own schedule. In parallel to this, our pipeline inspection professionals can be deployed worldwide to conduct diagnostical surveys and analyze data, offering an end to end service to the client. Our toolbox of pipeline inspection tools and our experience of inspecting thousands of miles of pipe globally, gives our customers the confidence and peace of mind that we have a solution for all their needs. They can rely on us to offer expert advice in setting up a long term program of work to meet their pipeline assessment objectives and targets.

Industrial

Aquam Pipe Diagnostics have provided condition assessment and leak detection services to a range of industrial clients from oil refineries, manufacturing facilities and automotive production plants, to evaluate the condition of their underground infrastructure.

Fire suppression lines are a focal area of concern for these companies from a liability perspective, therefore they are considered critical infrastructure as the consequence of failure could be devastating. Our technology and services enable industrial clients to get a better understanding of the internal and external condition of their pressurized pipe network and achieve a greater level of confidence in the structural integrity of their system. In terms of planning a shutdown for maintenance, system intelligence is fundamental.

We can inspect pipes from 3 inches and above while the pipe is still live and under pressure. This is invaluable for these clients as the lines do not have to be taken out of service and business can continue as usual. Revenue and production output is the cornerstone of these facilities therefore inadequate operational efficiencies and pipeline repairs due to leakage, have knock on financial implications to a facility of this nature. A reliable and consistent water supply is essential to meet the demands of 24/7 operations.

Commercial

Commercial establishments such as airports, retailers, educational campus’ and military bases are some of the clients that have approached Aquam Pipe Diagnostics to apply our experience and state of the art technology to conduct pipeline assessment inspections and leak detection surveys.

Establishments in the commercial sector are especially reliant on an uninterrupted water supply to support operations 24hrs a day, 365 days of the year, therefore they cannot afford poor operational efficiencies and inadequate supplies . Fire suppression lines are required to meet emergency response, security and public health and safety stipulations, therefore regulatory compliance and liability concerns drive these facilities to invest in the assessment of their critical infrastructure. Simultaneously, asset condition, operability and accessibility is the foundation of system control and key to controlling the consequences of a catastrophic event.

Aquam Pipe Diagnostics have executed inspections in numerous commercial premises to determine the structural condition of their piping system and to perform a comprehensive leak detection survey on water lines, fire suppression systems, heating, cooling and chill water pipes. All of our technologies are non disruptive to supply therefore businesses can function as normal during the inspection.
