ePIPE® Lead Line Remediation
In December 2013, the EU will adopt the new World Health Organization (WHO) quality standard for lead in drinking water of 10 μg/l (ppb). Canada also follows the 10 μg/l (ppb) limit. The USEPA has adopted guidelines with a quality standard for lead in drinking water set at 15 μg/l.
ePIPE® has been engineered as an effective long term solution for preventing lead leaching into the drinking water supply from inline lead components such as lead pipes and fittings containing lead.
The ePIPE® solution focuses on a 2 hour cured in-place lining that is placed onsite, inside lead pipes and fittings.
ePIPE® has gained approval from the UK Secretary of State under Regulation 31 of the Water Supply (Water Quality).

2 Hour Return to Service
UK-WRAS and UK Secretary of State Approval. We are now in process on approvals in the United States and other countries for the new generation of faster return to service lining products. A 2 hour service return is a breakthrough in the in-place restoration of small diameter drinking water pipes.
