A local Housing Authority was experiencing repeated leaks in the piping system of one of their Housing and Urban Development (HUD) properties.
Property Owners and government agencies of rental properties face big decisions when leaks and corrosion exist in the piping systems of their rentals. Traditional repipe methods are destructive. Having water off overnight would require the placement of tenants in a hotel or other facility in order to ensure running water.
ePIPE Restoration with same day return to service.
A Housing Authority representative contacted ePIPE about in-place epoxy lining as an alternative to a repipe. The patented ePIPE process restores pipes “in-place” with far less destruction than a repipe. The representative was informed that ePIPE restoration could be performed on units to restore the piping system in less than one day using ePIPE’s 2-hour return to service epoxy.
ePIPE certified technicians were able to restore the piping system, protect the pipes from future corrosion and leaks, and turn water back on for the tenants within 6 hours.
After the job was completed, a manager stated that they were very pleased with the work and product that ePIPE provided.
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, corrosion control and prevention of lead leaching from pipes for both commercial and residential piping systems. ePIPE service providers are located in the US, Canada, Mexico and Europe. ePIPE products are sold under the brand names PurPipe®, Nu Pipe® and ePIPE®.
