Water Pipeline Condition Assessment

For utilities with deteriorating pipelines and limited budgets, prioritizing water pipe repair and replacement is a must. The ePulse ® pipe condition assessment process is a valuable tool for this complex decision-making process. This innovative technology uses acoustic signals and advanced computer algorithms to measure the average minimum remaining wall thickness of distribution and transmission mains. helping to identify pipes in the system that need to be repaired or replaced. The structural data collected helps water systems optimize repair and replacement programs and improve capital investment decisions.
Our Water Pipeline Solutions

Engineered by Echologics, ePulse® is a non-disruptive acoustic pipeline condition assessment technology that provides accurate information on the structural condition of underground assets and leak detection.


It helps utilities confirm assumptions and typical pipe replacement recommendations based primarily on computer models. It allows water systems to implement proactive asset management plans –targeting critical water mains and allocating spending to the appropriate corrective action: replace, rehab, repair, or defer.


The water pipe inspection technology works on a wide variety of pipe diameters (from 4 inches to over 60 inches) and on pipes made of cast iron, asbestos cement, or concrete. This innovative pipe condition assessment method requires no extensive support from utility field staff and causes no disruptions to roadways or the water supply. This non-intrusive, low-risk process allows to quickly test large portions of mains (up to 0.5mile/team/day with minimal support) at a lower cost. It can also simultaneously be used for municipal water leak detection which makes it an extremely cost-effective solution.
