The development of the patented ePIPE epoxy pipe repair process goes back to the 1990s with a vision to address pipe corrosion, leaks and lead pipe remediation in-place. ePIPE is a safe, effective, non-invasive alternative to conventional re-piping.
YES! Since ePIPE restores a building’s piping system within the walls, owners save money by not destroying walls, and having to patch, tape, texture, paint, wallpaper or tile. The savings in the reconstruction cost makes pipe restoration the less expensive alternative.
YES! New pipes start to deteriorate the moment the water is turned on. ePIPE protected pipes prevent water from coming in contact with the pipe wall, protecting the pipes from future corrosion and pinhole leaks.
Yes! Unlike a repipe, which must open walls to replace pipes, the ePIPE patented process restores a pipe right within the walls. In most cases, no walls have to be opened at all. If a crew does need to gain access to a mixing valve, a small opening will be made and the wall will be returned to paint ready condition.
Each leak is carefully evaluated and will be handled in the least invasive manner possible. The size of the hole and the location of the pipe will determine which repair method will ensure an effective solution.
Yes! Floor covers are put down before work begins. ePIPE technicians take pride and great care to ensure your home and its contents are protected.
Repairs or modifications to epoxy lined pipes may be performed by any licensed plumber, but they must be carried out using flameless technology. Modern flameless technology is safer for your home and your piping system.
