Prevent leaks and bring lead leaching into compliance with ePIPE

Pipe Restoration Inc., Technologies, LLC, (PRT), a world-leading pipe lining innovator and manufacturer of the patented, proven ePIPE pipe restoration technology, offers the fastest, 2 hour return to service barrier coating that prevents water pipe leaks, as well as bringing lead leaching into compliance. In honor of the United States’ Environmental Protection Agency’s national Fix a Leak Week and United Nations’ World Water Day on March 22, PRT announces that it is helping to combat the global issue of water conservation and access to clean water with the ePIPE patented leak protection process. 

With PRT’s several leak sealing patents and the addition of its latest patent granted by the USPTO, covering the in-place coating of metallic pipes curing the resin in at least one hour, the patented ePIPE technology is proven to be the industry’s fastest and most effective in-place pipe lining process that prevents leaks and greatly reduces lead and metals from leaching into the clean drinking water supply.

“We are constantly innovating to tackle water conservation and lead leaching, thereby enhancing the process of providing clean water to homes and buildings,” ACE DuraFlo CEO Larry Gillanders said. “These are global and national crises. Wasted water through leaks and lead leaching must be addressed at city and national government levels. We are proud to offer a technology that combats both problems, while also being more economical, less disruptive and less destructive than pipe replacements.”

The Flint, MI, water crisis has brought major attention to the cumulative effects of lead exposure, especially in pregnant women and small children. Lead is a dangerous toxin, poisoning drinking water, with medical experts agreeing there is no amount of lead deemed safe for consumption.

Pinhole leaks are one of the leading causes of water loss in the United States. It is estimated that 10 percent of homes have pipe leaks, which contributes to more than 1 trillion gallons of water that leaks from American homes every year. Approximately 1/6 of the U.S.’s clean water is believed to be lost each year due to pipe leaks, including billions of gallons of clean water in Southern California.

PRT’s patented, in-place epoxy lining solution, ePIPE, restores the pipes from the inside and prevents pinhole leaks from occurring. This minimally-invasive method is preferred over traditional pipe replacement techniques, which are extremely expensive, disruptive, destructive, time-consuming and harmful to the environment.
