So you have found a leaking pipe in your home? You may have identified this from water damage in your home, dramatic jump in water bill, or flooding in or out of your home. Interestingly according to the Environmental Protection Agency, 13.7% of all water used in the home today can be attributed to plumbing leaks.
You have two options when it comes to fixing water leaks one is replace the pipe and the
second is a Trenchless technology called Redline.
If the pipe is easy to locate then this may be an ideal option you can dig and replace the broken section of the pipe. However if the pipe is located behind a wall, around the pool, under the driveway or under the slab of the house, replacing the pipe is going to be an expensive task.
Redline is an epoxy coating that is used for the restoration of plumbing,. It is a non-invasive process that uses epoxy to coat the inside walls of pipes without the need to expose the pipe with the destruction to interior or exterior surfaces of building, or landscape.
As a non-invasive pipe rehabilitation process, Redline can be used not only as a solution to repair leaks, but as a preventative tool to preserve the life of existing piping systems and prevent further corrosion or leaks. In piping systems when one leak appears it is generally just the tip of the ice berg and once one leak is repair another will soon follow. However with the use of the Redline system or other systems similar you can prevent this from occurring.
