Reasons to clean drinking water pipes:
Turbid water causes many complaints. Sediment removal from water mains is fast and easy with Ice Pigging™. This discolouration, or turbidity in the water is normally caused by overhauls, network changes, bursts, or flow reversals disturbing sediment accumulated over the years.
Clean drinking water pipes for flow reversal
Knowing in advance if water mains are to be used in reverse flow, it’s prudent to clean them first to avoid turbidity in drinking water. Ice Pigging™ can thoroughly clean many kilometres of pipe in a few hours.
Water pipe debris removal
Debris in water pipes can be caused by sediment entering the water at treatment plants or even physical degradation of older pipes. The unique Ice Pigging™ system removes all debris, quickly and cost-effectively.
Remove biofilm from water mains pipes
Biofilms are organic and inorganic material normally found in patches on the inside of pipes. They’re responsible for a wide range of water quality and operational issues. Ice Pigging™ is by far the most effective way of removing biofilm.
Improving water quality
The overall quality of water (including taste, odour and clarity) will be greatly improved by the removal of debris, biofilm, chlorine residuals and other contaminants. Only Ice Pigging™ can offer a fast, low-risk cleaning service in hours, not weeks.
