Epoxy Pipe Lining Pros and Cons
Epoxy lining is a term for a variety of different plastic resins used on hot and cold water supply pipes such as HVAC piping, gas lines and sprinkler lines. Epoxy pipe lining is often viewed as an alternative to replacing and repairing old piping. The lining process involves coating the inside of the pipe with an epoxy resin that seals any damages such as cracks and corrosion. Once this step is completed, you are left with a lasting solution that solves your pipe problems and creates a stronger and new “pipe within a pipe”.
