Understanding ePIPE Technology
Here’s how ePIPE works: Our skilled team at Black Plumbing starts by heating and air drying your water pipes using preheated, filtered air. This initial step is crucial for preparing the pipes for the upcoming treatments. Next, we clean the pipes using a combination of air and abrasive materials, which not only cleans them but also preps them for the epoxy coating application. The final step involves sandblasting the inside of the pipes with an air and corundum mix, creating the perfect surface for the epoxy coating. Once applied, the epoxy coating completes the restoration process.
The benefits of ePIPE technology are numerous:
- Stops Pinhole Leaks: The epoxy lining effectively seals and prevents any future pinhole leaks in your pipes.
- No Wall Damage: Our non-invasive approach means there’s minimal disruption to your home, with no need for digging or wall damage.
- Cost-Effective: The process avoids the need to go through walls, ceilings, or floors, significantly reducing the cost.
- Enhanced Quality: The repairs are quiet and internal, with the end result often being even better than the original piping.
- Improved Water Flow: ePIPE lining addresses issues causing low water flow, such as pipe buildup and leaks.
- Cleaner Water: With this lining, rust and other contaminants are prevented from seeping into your water supply.
