Prevent Rust Contamination in Water Lines

It’s not unusual for pipes to show their age over time, especially if you have old steel or iron pipes. These pipes can potentially start to rust and you might start to notice signs of rust or contamination in your water. Industrial slip lining is a great way to combat this and ensure you protect your pipes and your water.

Signs of Rust Contamination

How do you know if you have rust contamination? Most of the time, there are signs that you can watch for. You also can be proactive when you know that your pipes are old or starting to rust. Being proactive may just make a substantial difference.

You can’t always see rust contamination, but there are also several signs that your pipes are rusting or corroding and it’s affecting the water lines. These are some of the most common signs of rusting and corroded pipes:

  • Discolored water
  • Water with a metallic flavor
  • Remnants of brown or bluish-green colors in the sink
  • Flaking or pieces in the water
  • Visually apparent rust or corrosion on pipes
  • Reduced water pressure
  • Cracks in pipes
  • Leaks

If you start to notice any of these signs, you should plan to have the pipes inspected and then repaired as necessary.

Protect Pipes with Industrial Slip Lining

While some business owners might choose to have parts of pipe replaced as wear becomes apparent, this can cause a lot of other issues. You have downtime, invasive digging, and extensive costs that might be involved.

Industrial slip lining provides a solution that doesn’t require any of this. It’s far more affordable and can typically be completed quickly so you can get back to business. And there is no digging required at all.

How Does Slip Lining Work?

Slip lining is a unique fix that can be used on regular pipelines as well as large-diameter commercial pipelines. While these are vastly different, a pipeline repair company that has the right tools can handle all the needs.

Slip lining is also known as CIPP. Cured-in-pipe placement is a simple, thin liner that can be placed in aging pipes or pipes that need to be repaired. Using this slip lining allows you to be proactive against repairs or make necessary repairs without having to dig to do so. It’s effective and efficient to protect your pipes.

First, we start with a video inspection to fully determine what the issues are and where the lining needs to be placed. Then, the lining is inserted using specialized equipment. The lining just needs to cure to adhere to the pipes. It effectively lines the pipes to protect against rust contamination while also firmly sealing the pipes.
