Replacement of worn-out water pipes proactively reduces water loss, prevents damage to water quality and increases reliability of supply.
The standard life span of a water pipe is about 40 years, hence the need to change each year about 2.5% of the length of the network, which is about 1,300 km long, i.e. 33 kilometers per year.
The Company makes an effort to improve the quality of the pipes and the methods of placing them, and also invests in constant supervision of the network, in order to extend the life span of the network.
