Epoxy Pipe Lining
At Pipe Surgeons, our advanced epoxy lining process can be used in a vast array of residential, commercial, municipal and industrial plumbing applications. When a plumbing system is in need of repair, there are several symptoms and warning signs that are apparent – our epoxy liner application technology can fix whatever problem you may have. We have the tools and technology needed to restore proper function to your impaired plumbing system permanently.

How Pipe Surgeons Epoxy Pipe Lining Applications Fix Problems
High water temperatures can corrode piping more quickly, and high oxygen or low pH in water can also result in corrosion. Poor piping design or inadequate plumbing techniques can result in erratic patterns of water flow that can accelerate spot corrosion, cause fractures and cause other problems as well. Pipe Surgeons’ state-of-the-art epoxy liner can fix these problems by creating an in-pipe barrier that is resistant to corrosion and fortifies a plumbing system’s integrity. When pipe walls begin to erode, this creates pinhole leaks that can cause mold growth and water damage over an extended time. At Pipe Surgeons, our highly trained technicians can spot these kinds of problems and act quickly to resolve plumbing issues through our epoxy pipe lining process. You will have the confidence of knowing that our repairs will be durable, lasting for decades to come.
At Pipe Surgeons, we use a specialized epoxy to coat the inside walls of pipes. This epoxy allows use to provide pipe restoration and repair services without the need for causing damage to either a building’s landscape or its exterior or interior surfaces. We use a non-invasive, eco-friendly process in the restoration of mechanical systems, plumbing systems and structural pipes. Not only used as a preventative tool to extend the life of existing piping systems, epoxy lining is a permanent solution used to prevent leakage and corrosion. Compared to plumbing restoration projects that necessitate the complete replacement of pipes, our epoxy pipe lining technology is much more affordable while providing the same levels of dependability and permanence.
Pipe Surgeons’ Cured-in-Place Pipe (CIPP) Pipe Epoxy Application Process
Here is a look at the process we use to apply our technologically-advanced CIPP pipe epoxy when restoring or repairing plumbing systems
Plumbing system diagnosis and set-up – We first test the faltering pipe system to find any impairment, as well as the sources of leaks. We temporarily remove the plumbing valves as part of the epoxy pipe lining application process, and drain the plumbing system of standing water. Then, we introduce air to both speed the process of drying and to test for leakage.
Pipe cleaning and drying – Next, our Pipe Surgeons technicians completely dry the pipe systems with heated, compressed air to ensure all moisture within the pipes has been removed; we then introduce an abrading agent through the pipes to remove corrosion, particles, rust and dust. We use the same high-pressure air process to blow out residual debris through the pipe. With the pipe’s interior thoroughly cleaned, it is ready for our epoxy pipe lining material to be applied.
Application of the pipe epoxy liner – In order to create an optimal internal pipe surface environment prior to the application of the epoxy pipe liner, the cleaned pipe system is heated. Before we apply the epoxy coating, we perform another air pressure leak test. And then, to endure that the epoxy lining is uniformly distributed throughout the pipe segment, we introduced conditioned air. After the epoxy is applied, we continue to send controlled air through the piping in order to ensure the proper curing of the epoxy.
Re-assembling the plumbing system and performing integrity tests – After the epoxy lining has cured, we return all of the fittings and valves to their original spots, and perform an inspection and a final leak test. The flow, quality and volume of the water are tested, and then we perform a video inspection within the piping to make sure of the new epoxy pipe liner’s integrity.
Our products and equipment – At Pipe Surgeons, we only use effective, safe epoxies that meet the highest quality control and performance standards in the industry. Our epoxies are approved for safe use per NSF/ANSI Standard 61 and certified for use in potable water plumbing systems. Our cured-in-place pipe restoration systems are used in industrial, commercial, municipal and residential applications throughout the southeast Florida region. The system completely coats the inside of galvanized or copper pipe, prevents future leaks, and protects your water from contaminants such as lead that can leach from piping. And we provide our repair services a minimum of disruption to your business or home, and without the damage to hardscapes, landscapes and buildings associated with traditional repair methods.
