Concrete Water Pipes
Wales, United Kingdom
Category: Water Treatment & Storage
An entire section of underground high pressure water pipes needed repairs due to several active leaks. PENETRON crystalline products, non-toxic and fully approved by the DWI (Drinking Water Inspectorate) for use with concrete in contact with potable water, were approved for the extensive repair work.
Initially, PENEPLUG was applied to stop all active leaks in the pipes; the cracks were cleaned out and filled with PENECRETE MORTAR. After a short curing period, the repaired pipe sections received two coats of surface-applied PENETRON crystalline material to complete the treatment. The pipes are now completely waterproof with no leaks.
