DRINKING WATER PIPES
The condition of your drinking water pipes determines whether the water delivered to your kitchen is safe and flowing efficiently. Nothing is more important than having safe drinking water for you and your family. Water contaminated from sewer overflow, rocks and soils containing arsenic, uranium or other chemicals and minerals, or cracks in water pipes, can make you sick. Some of your family members may be more vulnerable, such as infants, young children, seniors, those who are pregnant, and anyone with a weakened immune system.
A growing number of homeowners are realizing the problems with drinking water due to old, damaged pipes in their homes. Without making the necessary repairs or replacements to the outdated systems, affected homes will lose access to potable water.
Repairing damaged water pipes is less intrusive today than in the past when you had to dig up old pipes and replace them with new ones. Our pipelining services in San Diego carry out the process smoothly, with no disruption to you. Here's a brief look at the process:
We apply spray-on epoxy throughout the pipelines. Once it cures, it leaves a new pipelining inside the old one. It acts like a protective barrier, preventing leaks and corrosion. In the absence of corrosion, small leaks inside the pipe called pinhole leaks don't develop. So, neither does water leak out nor does the pipe allow contaminants from getting in.

PRESSURIZED WATER & SEWER PIPES
Pressurized water pipes are used for the drinking water that comes into your home and for carrying out waste. Both pressurized and non-pressured piping systems are used for different purposes. The type of system used determines the best product for repairs when the pipes become compromised.
Any issue with pressurized pipes doesn't take long to go unnoticed. You will spot water damage in your walls, floors, or ceilings, low water pressure or get a higher-than-normal water bill. If you've moved into a home that has a history of pinhole leaks, you'll have to set your water pipes right. Epoxy coating, which also goes by cured in place pipe lining (CIPP), from our experts is exactly what you need. An epoxy barrier coating works well for pressurized pipes. It can be used on a variety of pressurized pipe systems.
We first identify the area causing low water pressure or water damage. The pipe is cleaned and heated to ensure that the epoxy coating adheres to the internal walls of the pipe. The liner is pulled inside the pipe and inflated to press against the inner walls. It is exposed to heat or ultraviolet light to cure and harden. We then perform a final leak test and inspection, checking the water volume, quality, and flow.

PIPES FOR IRRIGATION
Irrigation pipes often carry water that isn’t pure and may even be corrosive. Sometimes producers rely on wastewater or process water to irrigate their crops. In addition, they might add chemicals and other harsh products to the water. Although the chemicals provide a valuable service to the crops, they often lead to damage and/or deterioration to the irrigation pipes. Once damage and corrosion occur in the pipeline, it puts your valves, heads and any mechanical devices at risk.
Irrigation pipes are among the pipes that can receive internal epoxy pipe coating. Pipelining is more cost-effective than repiping. Moreover, repiping requires taking pipelines out of operation. The time required to internally coat pipes is much shorter. Pipelining may not be the best solution in all cases. We can advise you on the better course of action for your irrigation pipes. Drop us a line with your questions and our team will be happy to offer you clarity.
Its popularity as a clean burning fuel has made natural gas the fuel of choice for many homes. In spite of the fuel’s advantages, sometimes gas line re-piping is necessary. That’s because the pipes that deliver gas to your home don’t function as cleanly if they become damaged over time. Pipes made from galvanized or black iron often rust, causing decay to build up. This build-up decreases the amount of room the gas has, leading to a reduction in flow.
A gas leak can be identified by the smell of rotten eggs or sulphur. A hissing sound near a gas line, a white cloud, or dead plants are other signs. Gas leaks can also cause physical symptoms like nausea, dizziness, breathing difficulties, and eye and throat irritation. Naturally, it is essential to take quick action. Locate where you need to turn off the gas and perform repair as quickly as possible so that you can get back into your home safely.
Gas line repair is serious business. Depending on the severity of the problem, we can suggest a suitable trenchless repair method. Rest assured that a trenchless approach will not interfere with the way gas flows through the pipes.
FIRE SUPPRESSION SYSTEMS
Fire suppression systems require regular maintenance to ensure they are working appropriately in case of a fire. When sprinkler systems fail, it puts everything and everyone inside the building at risk. When the sprinklers are neglected, unnoticed damage can result in a failure. Most experts recommend inspecting fire suppression systems a minimum of four times each year.
When you notice problems with the pipes in your fire suppression system, pipe lining from our experienced team can restore the ability of this key component of your building's fire protection system. Epoxy restoration is ideal in preventing damages to the internal and external surrounding of the piping system. As a preventive method, it can extend the life of the piping system.
