The Trianon Condominium is one of the few intracoastal buildings in West Palm Beach and each of the condo units share pristine views of the water and Palm Beach Island. Having a cooling tower/water source heat pump A/C system in Florida means it must be in good repair to deal with Florida’s heat and humidity. Proper water treatment had not been maintained at the Trianon. After finding and repairing a split in their condenser piping, they noticed the overall condition on the piping was failing.
PUTTING A HIGH PRIORITY ON INFRASTRUCTURE NEEDS
Replacing this piping in the 19 story building would be cost prohibitive so they wisely looked into their options. After extensive research and checking with other associations in the area, they were referred to Florida Pipe-Lining Solutions for help with their system.
THE FIX FROM FLORIDA PIPE-LINING SOLUTIONS
FPS Representatives met with the Trianon association about the situation and then put together a plan of action to restore the failing black steel condenser piping. Varying in size from 1½” to 4″ in diameter, the condenser piping was first disconnected at the water source heat pumps. Then all the vertical piping was cleaned from the roof down. After the piping was clean, FPS Technicians installed the ePIPE® Barrier Coating System to all of the piping. As the originator and holder of 12 US Patents and approved across the globe, the proven ePIPE® system from Florida Pipe-Lining Solutions stands without peer as the cost-effective, non-destructive answer for restoring chilled water piping, condenser piping, potable water piping, and fire systems.
SATISFACTION AT THE TRIANON
FPS spent more time than originally planned on the restoration of the Trianon condenser piping due to the condition of their piping, but the final results were most impressive. Lonnie Vanderwerf, LCAM for the Trianon had this to say about the project “we were very satisfied with the professionalism of the FPS staff and the quality of their work.”
