Aquapea Device to stop water leaks was featured in the January issue of Inflow & Infiltration Problem: A shopping plaza in California noticed an increase in its water bill. After some investigating, maintenance crews were able to pinpoint the cause of the issue being a leak located in a 3/4-inch line running below hardwood flooring. The leak was losing 1.4 gpm.
Solution: The Aquapea from Internal Pipe Technologieswas chosen as the preferred solution to seal the leak. Crews used an external pump to boost the unusually low city water pressure. The device was launched into the system to seal the leak. It traveled through the line and was drawn to the leak’s location by the flow of the escaping water.
Result: In this situation, it took approximately 45 seconds for the Aquapea to find and seal the leak. The shopping plaza now has a 0.0 gpm leak reading. 325-788-1139; www.internalpipetech.com
