Does your home, building or property experience foul-smelling water, discolored water or low water pressure? If so, these are clear signs of internal corrosion and they could be bad for the health of the people drinking it, as well as the health of the pipe system.

Corroded pipes form when the water chemically reacts to the metal pipes (mostly galvanized pipes). Think of this process as the metal pipes slowly dissolving into the water, weakening the integrity of the pipe system and greatly inhibiting the pipe system’s functionality. Internal Corrosion is extremely common in pipes, but can result in serious consequences that are troublesome and expensive.

When left untreated, internal corrosion buildup in potable water piping will cause pinhole leaks, discolored water, foul-smelling water, distasteful water, poor water temperature transfer, low water pressure, and may cause pipes to burst.  These problems will worsen with time, but can be stopped and prevented with our state-of-the-art In-Place-Pipe repair solutions and prevention technologies.

 

 

 

 

TDT Plumbing’s Corroded Pipe Repair Solutions

Corroded Pipes Inspection: Using our diagnostic testing expertise, we will analyze the health of the potable water pipe system.

Corroded Pipes Repair: Our plumbing experts can apply an epoxy barrier coating to the corroded water pipes, replace the pipes or suggest other options to reduce the chances of this happening to the pipes again.

Corroded Pipes Prevention: Stop corrosion from forming by protecting the potable water pipes with a powerful, and completely safe epoxy barrier coating, called ePIPE (National Sanitation Foundation, NSF, tested and certified to Standard 61, meaning it is completely safe for use in all potable water applications). This special barrier coating prevents common water pipe problems.

 

 

It is important for you to know what type of water pipes your property has, the age of the pipes, the velocity of the water traveling through them and if the property has hard water or acidic water. These factors can help determine the longevity of a pipe system. However, a professional inspection and analysis by TDT Plumbing should be used to best predict future problems.

If you think your residential, commercial, industrial, educational or government building is experiencing pipe system problems due to internal corrosion, or other plumbing concerns, please give us a call immediately! We are proud to provide the most high-quality plumbing services with the fairest prices in the area, serving all types of properties and buildings in throughout Texas.
