Sponsored by

BUFFALO GROVE, IL, Dec. 7, 2010 -- Wachs Water Services, a leading service provider to water utilities in North America, announces exclusive agreement with JD7 Pipeline Services Ltd., a supplier of proprietary leak detection and pipeline assessment technologies. JD7 has recently launched a product that provides accurate high quality pipeline condition assessments without taking the lines out of service. Working through fire hydrants, JD7's "Investigator" provides HDTV images of the inside of pipelines -- identifying tuberculation, features, liner condition, laterals, etc while simultaneously detecting leaks in the line.

"The Investigator will revolutionize the condition assessment and management of operational assets," said Cliff Wilson, President of Wachs Water Services. "It is the perfect complement to Wachs' other services which focus on the management of valves and operational intelligence - helping utilities effectively run their distribution systems."

WWS will offer another solution from JD7; the LDS1000, a leak detection system used on existing transmission lines. It provides an HDTV image up to 3000ft from the point of entry into a pipeline without interrupting service. "The LDS1000 knows exactly where the leaks are and at the same time allows us to assess the condition of the pipeline in terms of tuberculation, liner condition and lateral or valve placement." Wilson also added that The LDS1000 is more cost effective than current methods available in the industry.
