Many sewer force mains have several things in common: They are a critical asset to the owner, and it is often complicated and expensive to divert or bypass the flow for an extended period of time.
The accessibility to the pipe is commonly difficult, as the mains run through densely populated, environmentally sensitive areas or under creeks and main roads. The pipelines often have several bends in the run of the main. Faulty sewer force mains have the potential to cause pollution, damage property and neighbouring services, resulting in significantly high costs. Failures on force mains can be caused by external corrosion, internal corrosion or mechanical failures like leaking joints, longitudinal cracks, etc. In many cases the pipeline is still able to withstand the external loads, but not the internal pressure loads.
