Project Type: Residential — Pipe Restoration

Location: River Oaks Houston, TX

Description: A dramatic and stunning home built in the early 1920’s; this elegant River Oaks home has aged gracefully over the years. The architecture and building materials that were used during that era is remarkable. However, with many historical properties, time does take its’ toll. In this case, the original galvanized potable plumbing system was experiencing localized corrosion or as it is mostly commonly known or referred to: “pinhole leaks€.

THE PROBLEM:

As is the case with many historical properties, time does take its’ toll on them. In this case, the original galvanized potable plumbing system was experiencing localized corrosion or as it is mostly commonly known or referred to: “pinhole leaks†. The owners had repaired several pinhole leaks with the customary “point repair†of the pipe segment. However, when they were told that this was going to be an ongoing problem throughout the entire potable plumbing system, they wanted a total solution to the pinhole problem.

THE SOLUTION:

The plumber that had been taking care of this property for many, many years knew that a re-pipe was out of the question. He referred the owners to TDT Plumbing and their patented , In-Place-Pipe Restoration technology. TDT Plumbing technicians promptly designed and executed a total potable water plumbing system restoration without the mess and cost of a complete re-pipe and wall reconstruction.

THE RESULTS:

A completely restored potable water plumbing system that will last well into the 22nd century.
