What Are My Options?
To address copper piping leak problems an Owner/Manager has three basic options:

Ongoing Leak Issues are Preventable
Why Corrosion Control Should Be Considered First
Despite claims that the piping systems were “too far gone” to protect, cathodic protection and water treatment corrosion inhibitors have been used to successfully solve the ongoing leak problems on tens of thousands of residential units.
It Is Not Too Late - Delays Only Cost More
Valuable time is often lost when building owners and managers delay decisions about controlling leak problems. Often, we see leak problems deferred for years because of the perception that fixing leaks as they occur is the “least” expensive and safest approach. Actually, installing our low cost and convenient cathodic protection or water treatment corrosion inhibitor systems without delay will provide immediate results and benefits.
The Low Cost Alternative to Ongoing Leak Problems
In most cases, corrosion control will be all you need to solve your ongoing leak problems. Your options to repipe, use coatings or other surface treatments, remain open. In the case of below-slab leaks, cathodic protection will complement any coatings or internal surface treatments by protecting the external (soil-side) surfaces of the piping.
