Pinhole leaks are a leading reason for a repipe project. Repiping seems to make perfect sense: Replace leaky pipes with new ones. It’s not that easy. A repipe project is a messy, inconvenient process. Holes get cut in walls throughout your home. And, when it’s done, there’s the patching, painting, and clean up.
Which is right for you: a repipe or pipe restoration?
While repiping may seem cheaper, Repipe doesn’t compare to pipe restoration when it comes to disruption to your home and outright inconvenience.
Pipe restoration is cleaner than a repipe
There’s almost no need to cut holes in your walls, floors and ceilings. pipe restoration repairs your pipes from the inside, within your walls. Technicians instead access pipes using taps you already have. The ePIPE process from TDT removes built-up corrosion and scale before applying a protective barrier coating to the inside of your existing pipes, restoring them to better-than-new condition.
Pipe restoration projects are quicker
A typical pipe restoration project repairs a typical home’s supply plumbing in about two days; compare that to the ten days or more it takes to repipe, patch walls, texture and paint. You don’t even need to leave your home during the process.
Pipe restoration repairs all your pipes
In-place pipe restoration gives you better than new pipes. That’s because TDT’s ePIPE coats your pipes with a durable, long-lasting epoxy coating that that protects the pipes from getting new pinhole leaks or corrosion. ePIPE from TDT also prevents lead or copper leaching into your water—as well as preventing future corrosion from increasingly aggressive water.
