How does it work?
AirKote® is a patented and proven process to coat the interior of your leaking pipe with an NSF 61 approved epoxy. The process includes a few basic steps once the leaking pipe has been identified and isolated from the piping system:
- Equipment Setup and System preparation:
When we arrive to start the lining repair we set up our equipment taking care to ensure that your property is protected and floors are covered as necessary. The leaking pipe is drained and connections prepared to receive lining process.
Using compressed air supplied by our specialized compressor and delivered through our patented control system, we dry and heat your piping system. Once dry, the interior corrosion to the copper piping can be easily cleaned, making ready for the lining process.
The dried pipe is cleaned by sand blasting. We use a light abrasive measured and introduced into each point by compressed air. All abrasives used are approved for use in your water system and completely non-toxic. The final result of the cleaning process is a system ready to receive the AirKote® epoxy lining process.
- AirKote® Pipe Lining:
The internal pipe coating is applied by the compressed air/sand lining process developed by the U.S. Navy Laboratory and refined for residential use in the AirKote® process. A measured amount of epoxy is injected into the pipe with the timed and temperature controlled application of compressed air to achieve a uniform interior coating to the pipe being repaired.
- Return to Service:
Upon completion and testing the pipe is reconnected and water is turned back on. The final result is a leak free pipe with the AirKote Limited Lifetime warranty against future leaks.
