Study Discusses Benefits Of Epoxy Lining Lead Service Pipes

The Water Research Foundation (a not-for-profit research cooperative) recently released a study evaluating the use of lining and coating technologies for lead service lines. The study was discussed and featured in this month’s Municipal Sewer & Water Magazine.

Pipe Shield has multiple technologies to line lead service lines including our Pipe Shield AN500™ Epoxy & Neofit Potable Water Pipe Relining. If you have any lead service lines that are in poor condition and require rehabilitation, please contact us.

Pipe Shield’s Quick Tips To Avoid Bursting Pipes This Winter

The long hot summer is a distant memory and many buildings have already turned on their heating systems.  As winter approaches, condo owners and tenants need to be mindful that radiator piping can easily freeze and burst. A burst heating pipe will cause major flood damage and leave the building without heat while repairs are being made.

In order to prevent frozen and burst piping when the outside air temperature is below zero, please make sure you follow our quick tips:

  • Do not close your radiator valve;
  • Do not leave your patio door open, even a slightly open door can lead to a frozen pipe; and
  • Do not leave your windows open.

You can avoid frozen and burst piping that seems to haunt many buildings every winter.
