San Diego, California Water Main Investigation
Do you have old, corroded water main pipelines? Do you want to extend the life of your aging pipelines? Would you like to save money by not having to unnecessarily replace pipelines that are in good condition?
Replacing water mains isn’t just expensive — in many cases, it’s unnecessary. Many of the distribution and transmission water mains that serve San Diego were installed between 50 to 100 years ago, and property owners simply cannot afford the prohibitive cost of replacing them. Performing a water main inspection and replacing only those sections of pipeline that have been compromised allows property owners to extend the operating life of existing water mains while drastically reducing operating costs and overall pipeline capital.
SPT Pipe offers water main inspection in San Diego for all diameters and materials of pipes, including cast iron, steel, ductile iron, asbestos, and pre-stressed concrete cylinder pipes (PCCP).

SPT Pipe Water Main Inspection Solutions Pipeline locating and mapping
SPT Pipe is a trusted provider of water distribution system mapping for water mains and integrations. Our solution involves inspecting PVC pipelines from the inside while they remain in service — the most reliable method for mapping PVC networks.
Water Main Leak Detection
Our trained technicians have decades of combined experience with the tools and techniques used to detect water main leaks.Our non-invasive inspection methods involve using a high-quality video camera to visually inspect the surfaces inside of the pipe. Your pipe remains intact and pressurized throughout the inspection process.
Pressure Transient Monitoring
SPT Pipe’s proven transient pressure monitoring service will provide detailed information about changes in water pressure within the pipeline, called “water hammers” or “surges. Such events pose a threat to the integrity of the water main and increase the risk of a rupture. We employ cutting edge, cost-effective digital technologies to monitor your water main for a short or extended period of time to analyze and extend the life of critical pipeline assets.
GIS Data Capture and Integration
Our data integration services prepare your pipe condition assessment data for use with geographic information systems (GIS), which determine the exact locations of of pipeline routes, and computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS), which monitor the operational status of pipes within the water distribution network.
