A local homeowner chose to have American Leak Detection use their new ePipe method of epoxy coating single plumbing lines to repair a leak in a copper hot water line that was located under a shower. The alternative would have been to expose the leak through the shower pan by breaking open a hole in the floor of the shower. In addition to the cost incurred to repair the leak, the shower pan would have had to be replaced and the shower retiled. By using the ePipe method, the leak was repaired in place with only two small holes made in the drywall to access the leaking pipe to effect the ePipe process. Not only was the leak repaired, but the entire line was coated with epoxy which will prevent any future leaks.
