A 93 unit apartment complex was experiencing pinhole leaks in its potable water piping system.
Property Owners face complex decisions involving expensive choices when leaks and corrosion exist in the piping systems. This is especially important when it comes to income properties and the care of their tenants. Having water off overnight or longer could require putting up the tenants in a hotel, other temporary facilities or plumbing in temporary water systems in order take care of the tenants during a prolonged water off period.
ePIPE Restoration with their same day return to service program.
With the ePIPE advanced 2 hour return to service product, no other lining company comes close to being able to offer a same day “water on” service.
The owner, who had expressed interest in the ePIPE solution, was informed that ePIPE restoration could be performed at his property with no overnight water shut downs and with no installation of costly temporary water bypass systems.
ePIPE certified technicians were able to restore the piping system, protect the pipes from future corrosion and leaks, and have water back on for the tenants every night during the restoration. Tenants came home every night with water available at every tap. The owner did not have to pay to relocate or compensate the tenants for the inconvenience of long water shut downs.
The patented ePIPE process involves restoring pipes in-place, with an application of an epoxy barrier coating resulting in a restored epoxy lined piping system. The process provides for a solution for pinhole leaks, epoxy lining, corrosion control and prevention of lead leaching from pipes.
