1. Cost effective, full scale condition assessments
Utilities need a faster, more accurate and affordable condition assessment method that objectively analyzes large amounts of current and historical data across the entire water main distribution system. This is where the Fracta AI digital condition assessment method steps in to help.
2. Reduce Break Rates
As time goes by, more data are collected and the accuracy of LOF improves. By rehabilitating or replacing the worst pipe, utilities should see their break rates decrease over time.
3. Optimize capital investment
Industry data says that as much as 30-40% of replaced pipe has useful remaining life. If CapEx spending on pipe replacement is $10 million per year, you could be wasting $3-4 million per year replacing the wrong pipe. Fracta helps you make sure that does not happen. Spend your capital once and spend it right.
“To leave good pipe in the ground as long as possible is economically important.”– Katie Miller, Manager of the water distribution division at San Francisco Public Utilities Commission
