Pipe Shield Educates ACMO Members About Pipe Rehabilitation Technologies At Monthly Luncheon

We were honored to have Brad Arnold present at the monthly ACMO luncheon last week on the topic “Aging Condominium Buildings: Pipe Replacement VS Rehabilitation”. Moderated by Sally Thompson of Synergy Partners, Brad Arnold of Pipe Shield and Sam Soltani of Trace Engineering did an excellent job discussing pipe lining and replacement options for condo’s domestic water piping systems.

Other areas discussed were the ability to epoxy line drainage piping (underground piping, vertical stacks and eliminating tree roots) with Pipe Shield’s CIPP lining technology as well as replacement of Kitec piping.

The luncheon was a great opportunity to connect with familiar faces and meeting new professionals in the industry.

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.

The Water Research Foundation 331 page study can be found here.

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.



The largest building show in Canada begins tomorrow and runs until Friday at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (Nov. 29 – Dec. 2). We are very excited to be featured at the event.

Please visit us in Booth #1206. We look forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting new professionals in the industry.

Exhibit Hours:
Wednesday, November 30th – 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Thursday, December 1st – 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Friday, December 2nd – 9:00 am – 1:00 pm
