Pipe Shield Domestic Applications Will You Save Time,
Money, & Future Water Pipe Corrosion.
If your home was built during or before the 1970s, there’s a good chance that your water pipes are made of galvanized steel or copper. Those materials begin to corrode the day they’re installed. Slowly, but steadily.
The most common problem seen in galvanized iron pipes is calcification and corrosion, resulting in pinholes developing from the inside of the pipe. Copper pipes are prone to “pitting”: developing small pin holes that can leak and damage your home, including carpets and timber frames.
Problems can occur in as few as 10 years from the date of installation. Here’s how you can tell if corrosive pipes are adversely affecting your home water supply:
- Coloured, bad-tasting, or foul-smelling drinking water.
- Poor water flow and heat transfer.
- Ill health symptoms resulting from a build-up of mold, mildew, and other water pollutants.
The Pipe Shield epoxy coating process eliminates the need to replace your existing pipes. Pipe replacement is messy, expensive, and can take weeks to complete.
Pipe Shield has a different method of application. Here’s how the Pipe Shield does the job faster, more affordably, and with longer-lasting results:
- Sitting water is drained from the pipe system and air is introduced to test for leaks.
- A full inspection of your pipes is undertaken with a CCTV camera.
- Next, all moisture is removed.
- We inject warm air into your pipes to remove all rust and corrosion.
- Once again, we inject air to remove any remaining dirt and debris.
At that point, the patented Pipe Shield epoxy coating is applied for a steady, uninterrupted supply of high-quality water for drinking, cooking, and bathing. Pipe Shield also prevents:
- Further pipe erosion
- Pin holes
- Cracks or leaks
The process is fast and non-invasive, meaning no dug-up lawn or paved surfaces to repair or replace.
Best of all, your pipes will last up to 70 years or more vs. 10-15. No other product can match that performance.
