Santa Ana, Calif — March 17, 2015 — Pipe Restoration Technologies, LLC (PRT), makers of the patented ePIPE pipe restoration product line, offers the only remedy to prevent pipe leaks with a two-hour return-to-service for drinking water pipes.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s national Fix a Leak Week, which started March 16, reminds Americans to inspect their homes and businesses for leaks, as well as repair them. PRT, with installers world-wide, offers the least disruptive pipe repair solution for homeowners, property managers, facility managers, and engineers.
“Our ePIPE pipe-lining process prevents leaks, saving tens of thousands of gallons of water per day throughout North America and Europe,” PRT CEO Larry Gillanders said. “Whether or not your home or business has experienced leaks in the past, we encourage you to use ePIPE, which has the fastest return to service in our industry, to prevent leaks before they cause expensive damage.”
Pinhole leaks are one of the leading causes of water loss, contributing to more than 1 trillion gallons of water leaking from U.S. homes each year. About 10 percent of homes waste at least 90 gallons of clean water per day, and it’s estimated that 1/6 of America's clean water is lost each year due to leaking pipes.
PRT’s patented in-place epoxy lining process, ePIPE, restores the pipes from the inside and prevents pinhole leaks from occurring. This method is preferred over traditional pipe replacement techniques, which are extremely expensive, disruptive, time-consuming, and harmful to the environment.
PRT is the parent company of the ePIPE product and worldwide group of installers that use the patented ePIPE process to restore pipes in-place. An alternative to a destructive repipe, this process is achieved using an application of an epoxy barrier coating, which results in a restored, epoxy-lined piping system. The process provides a remedy for pinhole leaks, epoxy lining, corrosion control, and prevention of lead leaching from pipes without the destruction or disruption encountered by pipe replacements.
PRT and its affiliated companies have locations throughout the United States, United Kingdom, Belgium, Spain, and Mexico.
