Epoxy Coating For Pipes Helps Repair Existing Pipes
Need to rehabilitate existing water pipes due to pinhole leaks, low water pressure, discolored water, lead and copper contamination.
Coat interior of existing pipes with Epoxy.
Copper or galvanized water pipes. Eventually, the hot and cold water pipes in our homes and businesses will need to be replaced due to corrosion and mineral build-up. Normally a re-pipe is performed by installing new pipes in the attic, through chase ways and down hollow walls.
Unfortunately, in older buildings with non-hollow plaster walls, a standard re-pipe is not always possible without significant wall and floor cutting and lengthy disruption to the occupants.
Recently, an alternative to conventional re-pipes has become available that restores the existing pipe system. This new process, known as an E- Coating, is done with minimal disruption to the home or business and is a quick and efficient way of dealing with leaking and corroded water pipes.
The process is simple. First, the existing pipes are dried using forced hot air and then internally sand-blasted clean. Next, a smooth layer of a special Epoxy (approved by the NSF for drinking water) is applied to the inside of the pipes. It’s that easy.
Water pipe restoration is beneficial when disruption to the home or business is a concern and costly restoration expenses are to be avoided.
All of the materials used in the E-Coating process have been proven safe and carry local, state and national certifications as well as the National Sanitation Foundation’s (NSF) 61 approval for drinking water. The E-Coating system is UPC listed and IPC compliant, providing an effective and healthy solution to leaky and corroded pipes.
