This beautiful, one of a kind mansion located along the Atlantic Ocean in St. Augustine was only 8 years old, but was plagued with leaks in their plumbing. The custom home contained many exotic plumbing features, including seven bathrooms and a steam room. Having already experienced 3 leaks in their soft copper water piping, they wisely looked at their options.
PUTTING A HIGH PRIORITY ON A PERMANENT SOLUTION
The homeowner got bids for re-piping that exceeded $30,000.00 and this did not include any trim out or the repairs that would be needed for all the access holes and damages to their home. The customer wanted a more cost effective and permanent solution.
THE SOLUTION FROM FPS AND ePIPE®
A Jacksonville plumber, familiar with our unique ePIPE® Process that we have successfully restored the piping in over 2000 homes across Florida, knew that was the non-invasive and permanent solution to this homeowner’s dilemma. After surveying the water piping, the ePIPE® Techs from FPS shut off and drained the water system. Then after using compressed air and sand to safely clean the interior of the piping, they replaced all of the shut off valves and installed the proven ePIPE® epoxy barrier coating. After the newly lined piping was dry, the entire system was tested and put back on line. The ePIPE® System proved once again to be the stress free and permanent solution to pinhole leaks in water piping.
SATISFACTION IN ST. AUGUSTINE
The unique ePIPE® barrier coating system is NSF-61 approved for drinking water and holds 9 patents. The ePIPE® restoration of their piping by Florida Pipe-Lining Solutions prevents future pinhole leaks in their 6,500 sq ft. home, all without the mess and destruction of re-piping. The customer was surprised at the amount of technical work required and very happy for the quality of work and extra care taken by the FPS Techs in their home. Upon completion, the homeowners were completely satisfied.
