When it comes to pool leak detection and pipe leak repair, having equipment you can rely on, and proven repair products is a must. Locating leaks accurately and the ability to repair leaking pool pipes under concrete with minimal labor and time is vital. This is where LeakTronics and Pipepoxy Repair come in.
What is Pipepoxy?
Pipepoxy is a three-part, fast curing method used to either recoat or spot-repair a leaking section of pipe. Pipepoxy’s three-step method of sanding, washing, and coating can be used in pipes with a diameter of up to 2.5 inches. This diameter of the pipe is widely used in swimming pools, fountains, artificial ponds, and other common water features. Pipepoxy works in piping materials made of copper, galvanized, poly, PVC, and flex pipe.
What makes Pipepoxy so unique, then? Statistics show that 95% of all pool plumbing leaks are located within a three-foot radius of the actual pool. The majority of the leaks are at fittings. Without resorting to intrusive methods, the user can now make repairs to the pipe by using the Pipepoxy system.
The pipepoxy Application Training course comes with the Pipepoxy Pipe Repair Kit and includes the tools needed to repair the pipe without excavating. Contractors can typically repair a pipe in an hour, with the drying process taking roughly four hours. The contractor can follow up the next day to confirm everything is good. The time Pipepoxy takes to apply is substantially less when compared to cutting concrete, digging down, removing the damaged portion of the pipe, performing the repair, testing the pipe again, and repairing the deck, which frequently leads to unsightly cosmetic variation.
