Why Use Epoxy Pipe Lining?
There are two basic reasons for having pipes lined. The most obvious justification is if a leak occurs, but corrosion inside the line can also cause headaches. In the case of a leak, several things can happen. A noticeable loss of water pressure is one result of an unwanted opening in the pipe. And if water can get out of the pipe, other things can get in. Dirt and contaminants from the surrounding area can find their way into the water supply. The leaking water can also cause damage to the structure of the house. It could generate mold and decay in lumber and other materials. Even without an actual leak, corrosion in the pipes can ruin the quality of your home’s water, and if it continues, it can lead to multiple leaks or even a complete collapse of a pipe.
Line Your Pipes to Eliminate Lead
Signs you may have lead in your water supply:
Your home was built before 1986: Older homes are more likely to have lead in their pipes and fixtures.
Your home’s piping is made of other metal, such as copper: Lead seeps into your tap water through corroded pipes. Even new metal pipes are vulnerable to corrosion within 5-10 years. Copper pipes are known to corrode within just one year!
You have brass faucets or fixtures: These materials tend to create direct avenues for lead to enter your water supply.
If any of these signs apply to you, don’t have just any plumber tear up all of the plumbing lines in your home to fix this issue. This process is expensive, time consuming, and unnecessary. Instead, let us help you go lead free the easy and cost-effective way by having us clean out the lines and coat your pipes the smart way, with epoxy lining. Call us now at (334) 279-8919 for more information and to schedule an appointment to have your home’s water inspected for lead, to ensure your home is lead free.
How it Works: The Pipe Lining Process
After shutting off the water, the operation starts with a sewer camera inspection to observe the conditions inside the pipes and look for possible leaks. A high-pressure sprayer is then sent through the lines to clean out debris and create a smooth surface that the epoxy can bind to. Finally, the interior of the water lines are coated with epoxy resin.
The Benefits of Using Epoxy Pipe Lining
Replacing a leaking pipe under the sink may seem like a real hassle, but it’s nothing compared to a pipe under the house. Just imagine having to go through a wall, a concrete slab, or several feet of dirt to get to the problem. However, there’s a more beneficial and cost-effective alternative to having the line replaced that does not include having to dig up trenches in your lawn. Having water pipes lined has many advantages over trying to replace them. It is almost always cheaper than replacement. The more inaccessible the pipe, the more expensive it will be to replace. Along with the added cost, replacement takes a lot longer. Lining rarely takes more than a couple of days to complete. The resin used for lining can often outlast conventional replacement pipes. It creates a smooth, clean interior surface that resists lime build-up and won’t produce its own corrosion.
Lining the pipe with epoxy saves you not just on money, but also on the length of time for the repair, so you can get back to your routine with the least disruption possible.
