Epoxy Pipelining Florida Properties
Epoxy Pipelining is an innovative design that uses various plastic resins on hot and cold-water supply pipes, sprinkler lines, HVAC piping, gas lines as well as waste and vent piping.
Epoxy pipelining is the leading choice for many as it alternatively replaces the traditional, costly option of total pipe replacement. The process enables plumbing professionals to coat the inside of the pipes with an epoxy resin to seal off pinholes and corrosion, creating a lasting solution.
Epoxy pipelining boasts the ability to last between 35 to 50 years and can protect your pipes from external invasions of tree and shrub root. Epoxy pipelining will also protect the inside of your pipes from leaks and damage while offering protection from potential clogs.
When property owners choose to use epoxy pipelining, savings of 75 per cent can be obtained when compared to traditional pipe replacement. The cost of labor goes down as less hours are needed to complete the trenchless operation.
The epoxy pipelining process begins with the wet-out stage and the textile liner is infused with the resin mixture, an epoxy base with a pre-determined hardener.
The liner is then inverted into the pipe with air pressure and as a result, the resin will now be on the outside of the liner against the existing host pipe wall.
Next, a calibration tube is inverted inside the liner which can then be ambient, hot water, or steam cured. During this period, the curing agent activates the resin causing it to harden, creating a fitted, smooth, and corrosion-resistant new pipe wall.
