Pipe Problems: Pinhole Leaks, Slab Leaks, Low Water Flow

A number of factors can work alone or in combination to affect the rate of corrosion in any piping system. Depending on the number and degree of these factors, even a new piping system can show signs of corrosive wear in a few as two years after installation.  Even the highest quality water source can cause some of these problems in your piping system.

Lead/Copper Contaminants

Corrosion causes lead and copper contaminants to leach into your drinking water.

Pinhole Leaks / Failing Copper

These miniscule leaks in your pipes can cause major damage such as mold and water damage to your floor, ceiling or walls.

Discolored Water

Many people attribute brown water to the water source, when in fact the water entering their home is clean. Rust in their pipes is contaminating their water.

Low Water Flow / Encrusted Galvanized

Poor or lower flow than normal is also a telltale sign that there may be a problem in your piping system.

Solution

Air drying of the pipes

Air hoses are connected to the piping system. The isolated system is then dried with preheated, filtered air.

Cleaning

The dried pipes are cleaned using an air and sand mixture that sandblasts the inside surface of the pipes. The cleaning process prepares the internal pipe surface for proper bonding of the epoxy.

Epoxy coating

The final stage of the ePIPE process is the application of the epoxy lining to the system. Pipes are ready for return to service in as little as 90 minutes.
