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.
