What Is PACP + LACP?

If you want to sell your home or have recently completed a home remodel valued over $50,000, you may need to get a pipeline assessment. PACP (Pipeline Assessment Certification Program) training is the gold standard for sewer pipeline assessments in the US.

In fact, many municipalities require plumbing contractors to be PACP certified. This is to ensure plumbers provide an up-to-date and standardized method of reporting for this service.

Gotelli’s pipeline assessment technicians are PACP and LACP certified. The LACP (Lateral Assessment Certification Program) certification is an extension of the PACP. This secondary certification includes extra training on plumbing codes for pipeline access points and fitting.

What To Expect During Your Pipeline Assessment Appointment

When you schedule an appointment with Gotelli, your service technician will look for sewer pipe defects and assess the overall condition of your pipeline’s infrastructure. They will identify:

  • Structural Defects: Damage to the pipe itself such as cracks, holes, deformations or surface damage
  • Operation and Maintenance Defects: Issues relating to the operation and overall maintenance of the pipeline such as obstructions caused by foreign objects, the presence of vermin or root penetration and growth
  • Construction Defects: Defective conditions attributed to how the pipeline was built such as intruding seal material or misalignments
  • Other Defects: Any problems not specified by the above categories

When Do You Need Pipeline Assessment?

Your sewer lines may stay hidden from sight most of the time they serve your home, but they’re one of the most significant investments you make as a homeowner. It’s a great idea to ensure that your sewer and gas lines are in good shape, especially in some of the following situations.

Pre-Purchase Inspections

If you’re considering purchasing a property, especially one with older plumbing systems, having a PACP or LACP-certified expert assess the pipelines can provide you with valuable information about their condition. This can help you make an informed decision and negotiate repairs or replacements if necessary.

Property Renovations Or Remodeling

When undertaking major renovations or remodeling projects that involve plumbing systems, it’s important to assess the existing pipelines to ensure they can handle the changes. You can also identify any potential issues that may need to be addressed before proceeding.

Compliance Requirements

In some cases, regulatory agencies or insurance companies may require pipeline assessments to ensure compliance with specific standards or to determine eligibility for coverage. PACP or LACP-certified experts can perform the assessments and provide the necessary documentation.

Overall, having your pipelines assessed by PACP or LACP-certified experts is crucial for ensuring the integrity, functionality and longevity of your plumbing systems. It helps identify potential problems, allows for timely maintenance or repairs, and contributes to the overall safety and efficiency of your property’s plumbing infrastructure.

Choose A Plumber You Can Trust

Highly recommend Gotelli Plumbing Company!John aka Jack “The Saint!” LatchfordJohn aka Jack “The Saint!” Latchford ★★★★★ Great service, got it done pretty fast and no hiccups.Arthur HuArthur Hu ★★★☆☆ A bit odd that the person I made the appointment with didn’t know if their guys work on commission, so I had to ask the plumbers when they arrived which was an awkward conversation for some reason. However, the 2 gentlemen arrived on time and properly diagnosed the probable cause of a sewer smell in one of my bathrooms and even comped me on a drain product I needed in the kitchen. I got a reasonable quote that Friday, but they didn’t have time to do the work that day which I understood.My hose bib was leaking in a couple of places after a pressure test was done, but I’d had some problems with leaking there once before, so the problem may have just popped up again.Response from the ownerHi Amy. I'm so sorry you didn't feel you had a great experience with our company. Per our email conversation, our technician checked the water pressure to the home as that is best practice on every service call. Testing the water pressure doesn't cause leaks. However, I offered to get a technician back out there to see what's going on. You mentioned you'd had issues with that hose bibb leaking in the past and that you wanted to hold off on having someone come out for the time being.
