Ageing of water supply networks is a real problem which leads to leaks and bursts. A great challenge is to discover the state of degradation of the buried pipes. This paper describes the knowledge of Veolia Water – SADE of a non-destructive technology to inspect cast iron water pipes and the methodology developed to define its performance in terms of probability of detection of defects.
