ePIPE Prevents Customer-Side Domestic Water Leakage of 14.5 Million Gallons of Water Per Year in California

Pipe Restoration Inc. is currently preventing customer-side domestic water leakage of nearly 14.5 million gallons of water per year throughout California using the patented ePIPE® leak protection and pipe restoration technology. Amidst the drought that is paralyzing California, worrying everyone from policy makers to farmers, one effective and proven solution for homeowners and businesses is to use in-place pipe lining solutions, such as ePIPE, to repair domestic water pipes, lengthening their useful lifespans inexpensively and without harming the environment.

With California in its fourth year of a historic drought, Gov. Jerry Brown issued the first-ever statewide mandatory water restrictions in hopes of reducing California’s water use by 25 percent. This includes the enforcement of water suppliers to quickly notify customers of a possible leak within the end-user’s control. Many Californian municipalities have also constructed their own mandates for homeowners and businesses to repair leaks or face fines. The state estimates that its water distribution systems lose up to 228 billion gallons of clean water each year through failing and leaking pipes, which is approximately 10 percent of the total amount of clean water California uses annually.

“ePIPE installers are contributing to saving water in California,” ACE DuraFlo® CEO Larry Gillanders said. “Leaking water pipes cost California billions of dollars each year and waste hundreds of billions of gallons of precious drinking water that we can’t afford to waste. Thousands of Californian businesses, homeowners and HOAs have already utilized the patented ePIPE process, which prevents otherwise-inevitable, expensive leaks.”

Pinhole leaks are one of the nation’s leading causes of water loss. The American Water Works Association estimates that approximately 5 to 10 percent of American homes have water leaks that can drip away 90 gallons a day or more. A single, broken distribution line in a commercial building will waste 8,100 gallons of water in just one night, and will waste 21,600 gallons of water each month.

Pipe Restoration Inc., using the patented ePIPE in-place epoxy lining process, restores water pipe systems from the inside and prevents pinhole leaks from occurring. ePIPE’s revolutionary, epoxy coating is NSF Std 61 approved for a return to water service in as little as 2 hours – the fastest return-to-service time in the pipe lining industry. The pipe lining method is preferred over traditional pipe replacement techniques, which can be extremely expensive, disruptive, time-consuming and harmful to the environment.
