Cost EffectiveReplacing pipes is 50% to 75% more expensive than lining them. Lining is a non-invasive process. There is no destruction to buildings or landscape. Reconstruction costs for repiping can be 60% of direct pipe repair costs and epoxy lining eliminates the need for reconstruction. Over time, up to 75% of the original flow capacity can be lost as result of corrosion leading to much higher energy bills. Restoring those pipes reduces energy costs.
Safe and DurableOur epoxy spray systems provide a safe and protective barrier between the pipe and the water,which prevents harmful elements from leaching into the water supply. We use a chemical resistant, non-toxic epoxy lining which has (NSF/ANSI-61) certification that is approved for drinking water. Testing engineers estimate the life expectancy of the epoxy is roughly 50 years.
Minimal DowntimeIn all cases, epoxy lining takes a fraction of the time of traditional repiping methods.
Minimal Disruption and Occupant DisplacementOur pipe restoration process is quick, quiet, non-invasive, and rarely requires displacement of a building's occupants. When needed, temporary bypass water systems are quickly installed to provide uninterrupted water service so that occupants, businesses, and clientele may continue business as usual.
VersatilityEpoxy lining can be applied in any metal pipe in any building, structure, or environment, above or below ground. This approach is used in the piping systems of hotels, high-rise condominiums, hospitals, restaurants, airports, schools, museums, U.S. Navy ships and commercial and industrial businesses. Our solution is available for potable water pipes as well as hot water recirculation systems, fire sprinkler and fire suppression systems, chiller lines and HVAC systems.
Approvals And Certifications
We are certified compliant with ASTM 729. We are in strict compliance with these industry standard regulations for non-toxicity to marine and aquatic biological organisms. This ensures that no fish, algae, or other wildlife are killed or harmed by heavy metals and other toxins leaching out of your piping into the environment at large. These certifications are an absolute necessity for eco-conscious companies and corporations wanting to improve their green image.
We are certified compliant with NSF/ANSI 61. Products appearing in the NSF Official Listing are authorized to bear the NSF mark. Certification to NSF/ANSI 61 ensures that our products meet the regulatory requirements for the U.S. and Canada, and often meets or exceeds the testing requirements for many other countries as well. Market leaders strive to attain NSF certification as a mark of distinction that provides their customers with assurance that their product is safe for use in drinking water.
