Every Earth Day, millions of Americans learn different strategies and products they can use to conserve resources and benefit the environment. With the Flint water crisis fresh on people’s minds, we’d like to take this opportunity to inform you that you can be part of the solution to conserve water.
Quick Water Facts:
It is estimated that 10 percent of homes have pipe leaks, contributing to more than 1 trillion gallons of wasted water per year – this equates to approximately 1/6 of the U.S.’s clean water.
Older homes, buildings and cities may have lead pipes. Prior to 1988, lead solder was a commonly installed material used with copper piping systems in the U.S. and Canada.
The average American uses between 80 and 100 gallons of water a day.
Many American adults admit they never make an effort to conserve water.
The patented technology that we utilize for restoring piping systems, called the ePIPE epoxy coating process, which cures in as fast as 90 minutes, offers the fastest return to service barrier coating that prevents water pipe leaks, as well as bringing lead and copper leaching into compliance.
This in-place epoxy lining solution rehabilitates the pipes from the inside and prevents the clean water from touching the pipes, reducing the likelihood of leaks and metal contamination. This minimally-invasive method is preferred over traditional pipe replacement techniques, which are extremely expensive, disruptive, destructive, time-consuming and harmful to the environment.
