Fixing Leaky Pipes with Epoxy

The Importance of Fixing Leaky Pipes with Epoxy

Water leaks can spring up in a home at any time especially with the presence of several sinks. There are reasons why sinks begin leaking water, a crack inside the porcelain or a fissure in the pipe can cause leaks which can increase water rate bills and cause water damages to the floor and walls.

One of the ideal ways to remedy leaky pipes is through the installation of epoxy pipe lining or with the use of epoxy putty. The putty can become a quick solution to minor leaks because epoxy can harden into a solid surface to stop even massive leaks in pipes. Please contact a certified plumbing technician from Leak Detection of Atlanta to schedule emergency leak repair in Atlanta GA.

Prepare for Epoxy Putty Application

If you can detect the leaky pipe on your own, please turn off the valve to such a pipe, if you can’t detect the leaky pipe then you should contact a technician. Turning off the water valve will stop water from flowing to the sink. Turn on the faucets to drain the remaining water inside the sink. Identify the leaky portion of the pipe, you should pay attention to the drip or water buildup around the hole which you need to wipe off with a rag. With the aid of sandpaper, simply smooth-out any damage or rusts on the pipe which will help prepare it for the epoxy putty application.

Complete the Epoxy Putty Application to Stop Leaks

Prepare Your Epoxy Putty

Epoxy putty is normally sold in two parts and you need to mix these parts together to create the epoxy adhesive and hardening mix. Mix the putty together, and mold it before pressing it against the damaged parts of the pipe. The epoxy will harden in just a few minutes. Allow the putty to dry for up to an hour before you turn the valve back on to run the water once again. Check to ensure that the applied epoxy remains in the right place. You must also check to ensure that no additional leaks occur, otherwise you need to prepare the epoxy adhesive again and apply.

Hire a Professional Plumber for Difficult Epoxy Treatments

Some leaks can be too complex to fix, and if you are unable to locate the water leak, please contact a professional plumber for help. According to the pollution Prevention Resource Center, the warranty for epoxy applications on leaks should last for around 15 years or more. Epoxy treatments for leaks are also believed to expand the lifespan of old pipes. Though the use of the epoxy mix to stop leaks has been ongoing for decades, it does not replace the need to upgrade aging pipes which must be handled by professional plumbers.

Whether you have a visible leak or hidden one, you should not hesitate to contact professional plumbers who can fix the solution at affordable rates. Please contact Leak Detection of Atlanta and we will send a certified technician to resolve the problem for you in no time.
