Dallas, TX (PressExposure) May 06, 2009 -- In todayâs economic climate, saving money has become a priority and quality service is more important than its ever been before. For this reason, American Leak Detection, serving the Greater Dallas and Fort Worth area (http://www.alddfw.com), is premiering a brand new method of repairing pressurized fresh water lines.
Epipe technology, or epoxy pipe lining, is a method in which pressurized plumbing lines can be repaired without incurring a great deal of destruction for homeowners. After all, traditional methods of repair can be destructive and messy. The ePipe method addresses both of those factors with a repair option that will not only fix leaks, but will also prevent future leaks.
âWeâve done literally thousands of fresh water line leak repairs in the Dallas and Fort Worth area utilizing all methods of repair, and none of them can compare to ePipe,â said Will Knell, Director of Operations at American Leak Detection-Dallas. âOur customers have been very happy with the results because the ePipe method has really helped to minimize damage to the home and provided them with a 5yr warranty on the entire length of line we are coating. We have had great success with this type of plumbing repair.â
Epipe technology has not only benefited homeowners, but also hospitals, resorts, hotels, apartments and commercial properties. American Leak Detection can detect and repair leaky pipes in just about any setting without disrupting the normal operation of business. Moreover, the repaired pipe will not corrode or pit, leaving home and business owners with peace of mind regarding their plumbing system.
âWe had one customer with a bad leak in the home and the ePipe system not only helped to reduce the overall cost of the job, due to the fact that the flooring in the home was not disturbed in any way, but the entire length of pipe was lined during the ePipe process, so any weak spots or areas that have the potential to leak in the future will be sealed and warranted as well,â said Knell.
The process of the ePipe lining system is fairly simple, which is part of its appeal:
1. First step is connecting the air hoses to the piping system and then drying the system with filtered air that has been preheated.
2. The second step is to clean the dry pipes using a mixture of air and an abrasive substance that gets the inside of the pipe prepared for the proper level of bonding of the epoxy.
3. Finally, an epoxy coating is applied to the inside of the copper pipe, thus sealing the leak and protecting the line from future leaks or corrosion.
This particular method has saved customers all over the Dallas-Fort Worth area from the destruction and mess that comes with traditional repairing methods. American Leak Detection offers customers a five-year warranty for the entire span of treated pipe, not just the area that was found to be leaking. The five-year warranty is three years longer than the standard American Leak Detection, which itself is one of the best in the industry.
