Although straight water pipes in condominiums are vinyl-lined, corrosion deterioration still progresses at pipe joints. Even if a pipe joint is clogged with red rust development more than 90%, we see no water discoloration. It is difficult to notice deterioration inside tap water pipes. Red rust deterioration in pipes can only be recognized with an endoscope. When considering the use of NMR Pipetector on tap water pipes, we first conduct an on-site inspection with an endoscope to determine the current progress of pipe degradation in detail. After that, we propose the most appropriate size and place of NMR Pipetector for installation. NMR Pipetector can prevent red rust deterioration throughout the entire piping, including joints.
Normally, water pipes in buildings have to be renewed in 20 to 30 years due to red rust deterioration, which requires a large amount of money. On the contrary, NMR Pipetector can eliminate the need to replace pipes. For example, it cuts the cost to one-fifth or to one-tenth than the refurbishment work of condominium pipes. Internal red rust deterioration can be completely prevented with NMR Pipetector extending the life expectancy of pipes for more than 40 years.
