The Problem

As municipal water mains age and deteriorate they fail causing loss of service and property damage, they lose hydraulic capacity due to mineral buildup inside the pipe causing poor flows and reduced fire protection, and result in poor water quality.

Solution

The Ted Berry Company performs progressive poly pigging and high pressure water jetting which are non-destructive methods to remove buildup inside of an existing pipe to restore its hydraulic carrying capacity and improve water quality.

 Results

Recently a local municipal water system operator hired the Ted Berry Team to clean an existing 8” Cast iron water main to remove material that was causing poor water quality and a reduction in flows that caused a local business to fail its fire protection test, following the cleaning which was performed in one day the water system was restored and both water quality and flows improved to meet the end user’s needs.
