The Wishing Well Motel
 

Nokomis, Florida

 

The Problem:
The Wishing Well Motel lies on the beach of the Gulf of Mexico. This Motel’s plumbing system had been plagued by pinhole leaks in their copper pipes. The situation was not getting any better. They could not afford to have the demolition and mess of a repipe. The entire plumbing system was in concrete walls and underground.

The Solution:
With a one week timeline we were chosen to restore the pipes in the motel while it was operating. Many fixtures were replaced during restoration. Isolation valves were installed because none existed. The water service was restored from the meter to the motel during the process. All the piping was 1/2” to 1”. Not one section of piping was replaced. Ace Duraflo restored the pipes in place and with minimal repairs.

COURTYARD
MARRIOTT

MIRAMAR, FL

Hotel Experiencing
Multiple Leaks

 

WATER PIPES IN NEED OF ATTENTION
Marriott hotels are known for their fine appointments and excellent service. However, this Courtyard hotel that serves the Miramar & SW Ft. Lauderdale area was suffering from continual leaks in the copper water piping. Replacing all the water piping would mean much destruction to the facilities and disruption to their guests. After looking into their options, the hotel owners found the neater, cleaner, and non destructive ePIPE® System from Florida Pipe-Lining Solutions. This unique and Patented epoxy barrier coating system restores copper pipes to a like-new condition without the destruction, mess, and remodeling associated with re-piping.

THE FIX FROM Florida Pipe-Lining Solutions AND ePIPE®
Project Manager, Mike Larson and his crew commenced the project by draining the water system and using compressed air to dry out the piping. After the water piping was dry and clean, the ePIPE® Technicians installed the ePIPE® epoxy barrier coating to the inside of the piping that provides water to all 128 guest rooms, 32 riser groups, kitchen, laundry, and the pool house. Holder of 8 Patents, the ePIPE® barrier coating provides a durable porcelain like finish that prevents leaks from returning. After the piping was cured, the entire system tested and put back into service.

SATISFACTION AT COURTYARD BY MARRIOTT
Even with the leak prone Miramar area, this hotel’s piping is now restored and warranted not to leak. The entire restoration project took approximately 90 days without the destruction to the hotel or disruption to the guests that pipe replacement would have caused. This Miramar hotel is satisfied and leak free.

Night Swan Intracoastal
Bed & Breakfast

 

New Smyrna, Florida

 

Night Swan Intracoastal Bed & Breakfast is a significant property not only for its location but also it’s famous clientele. They were experiencing pinhole leaks and had to solve the problem with the least amount of disruption to business.

The Problem:
Night Swan, built in 1906, had been through a significant remodel but was faced with a major dilemma of pinhole leaks. Having gone through a repipe previously, they needed a solution that would be cost effective without leaving the property in disarray. Another concern facing the owners was leaving the facility unoccupied for more than 5 days. An internet search provided light to the perfect solution, ePIPE®.

The Solution:
ACE DuraFlo® Pipeline Restoration Technologies began restoration using ePIPE on a Sunday after the weekend customers had retreated. Restoration was completed a day ahead of schedule and the Bed & Breakfast was prepared for the next wave of guests looking to unwind.
