Replacing pipes is 50% to 75% more expensive than lining them. Lining is a non-invasive process that requires no destruction to buildings or landscape. Reconstruction costs for piping can be 60% of direct pipe repair costs and epoxy lining eliminates the need for reconstruction. Eventually, up to 75% of the original flow capacity can be lost as a result of corrosion, leading to much higher energy bills. Restoring those pipes reduces energy costs.
Safe and Durable
Belco epoxy spray systems provide a safe and protective barrier between the pipe and the water, which prevents harmful elements from leaching into the water supply. These systems use a chemical resistant, non-toxic epoxy lining which has (NSF/ANSI-61) certification that is approved for drinking water. Testing engineers estimate the life expectancy of the epoxy is roughly 50 years.
In all cases, epoxy lining takes a fraction of the time of traditional repiping methods.
Minimal Disruption and No Occupant Displacement
The pipe restoration process is quick, quiet, non-invasive and rarely requires displacement of a building’s occupants. When necessary, temporary bypass water systems are quickly installed to provide uninterrupted water service so that occupants, businesses and clientele may continue business as usual.
Epoxy lining can be applied in any metal pipe in any building, structure or environment, above or below ground. This approach is utilized in the piping systems of hotels, high-rise condominiums, hospitals, restaurants, airports, schools, museums, U.S. Navy ships and commercial and industrial businesses. This solution is available for potable water pipes as well as hot water re-circulation systems, fire sprinkler and fire suppression systems, chiller lines and HVAC systems.
