Pipeline management presents challenges that are quite unique. Their long length, high value, high risk and often difficult access conditions require continuous monitoring as well as an optimization of maintenance interventions. The main concern for pipeline owners comes from possible leakages that can have a severe impact on the environment and put the pipeline out of service for repair. Leakages can have different causes, including excessive deformations caused by earthquakes, landslides or collisions mobile objects, corrosion, wear, material flaws or third party intrusion.

Although there is enough water on earth, its uneven distribution, the rising population and our carelessness drinking water starts to get short. In the future more and more pipelines for drinking water will be built all over the globe. In order to operate huge and complex pipe networks efficiently, water flow measurement and flow monitoring will become necessary. The increasing efficiency of ultrasonic flow meters will make such calculations more and more effective.

Video Inspection of pipelines and sewer systems is becoming more and more important, and is done with a digital camera essentially attached to a push rod to provide the user with a tool inserted down the pipes and that is able to inspect the inside of them, that would otherwise be inaccessible. The plumbing camera is attached to a screen for real time visualization that can also be recorded. These plumbing cameras can help visualize clogs and damage to pipes and sewer systems quickly in residential and commercial buildings.
