Below-slab plumbing leaks (slab leaks) caused by soil-related corrosion affect many residential properties. They are expensive to repair, disruptive, cause moisture damage, and are a major cause of mold related repair work.
Low Cost & No Disruption
As a preventive measure, or if you have already exprienced slableaks, Cathodic Protection can significantly reduce or eliminate further leak problems. With our system there is no disruption to residents because it is installed outside the dwelling space, see Figure 1 below.
Add Value To Your Property
Backed by over twenty years of experience, our systems have added value to residential properties as a proven proactive maintenance effort. With the rising cost and exposure of leak-related damages property owners and managers are recognizing the economic sense of preventing rather then reacting to the slab leak problem.
Compatible With Other Options
Are you considering water treatment inhibitors, repiping, or epoxy coatings? You can protect your existing piping now with our system and keep your options open. If you are considering water treatment inhibitors or epoxy coatings to protect the water-side surfaces of the piping, cathodic protection will complement these methods by protecting the soil-side of the buried piping from ongoing corrosion.
Cathodic Protection is so effective at preventing leaks that the Federal Government has required it by law for all buried gas and oil pipelines. Why shouldn't it be used for below-slab water piping? Talk to your insurance company about a potential discount on your building's policy.
