A number of factors by themselves or in combination can affect the corrosion rate in a piping system. Depending on the degree of these various factors, signs of corrosion can show up in piping systems in as little as two years after being installed. Some of these problems may even show up when using water sources of the highest quality.
PINHOLE LEAKS/FAILING COPPER
Even diminutive pinhole leaks in your piping can cause major water damage and mold, to your walls, ceiling, and floors, leading to expensive remodeling.
ENCRUSTED GALVANIZED/LOW WATER FLOW
Experiencing lower flow than normal is an indication of problem in your piping system.
While many people blame brown water on the source of their water, oftentimes the water coming into their home is clean and the problem is actually rust within their piping system that is contaminating their water.
LEAD COPPER CONTAMINANTS
Corrosion in your piping can cause leaching of lead and copper into your drinking water.
1.AIR DRYING OF PIPES
Air Hoses are connected at various points to the water system. Technicians then use pre-heated and filtered air to dry the isolated system.
The cleaning of the dried piping is accomplished by using a mixture of air and sand to scour the inside of the piping. This cleans and prepares the internal pipe surface for optimum bonding of the patented and NSF-61 approved epoxy.
3.EPOXY COATING APPLIED
The application of the epoxy lining is the final stage of the ePIPE® process. The patented lining provides a barrier coating to seal and protect the piping system from future corrosion.
