Wastewater Treatment Plant Pipe Repair

SylWrap Pipe Repair Products are used by wastewater treatment works to repair damaged sewer pipes and prevent the harmful and hazardous leak of contaminated water.

The ease with which SylWrap solutions can be applied and their quick working time makes them ideal for repairing potentially dangerous leaks as soon as they occur.

When pipelines fail in a wastewater treatment works, the consequences can be severe. If a wastewater pipe unexpectedly bursts, it can allow contaminated water to escape into the environment. This is hazardous to human health, bad for the environment and costly in monetary terms. Companies who do not dispose of wastewater safely can be hit with severe fines, not to mention the reputational damage that such an incident can cause.

There are many reasons why a sewer pipe repair might be required. Pipelines in treatment plants can burst or begin leaking through wear and tear, hardly a surprise given the vast quantities of wastewater that they are dealing with. Contractors may inadvertently cut into a wastewater pipe, causing a damaging breach. Most of the time, these problems will come on suddenly, meaning that wastewater facilities need to be able to react quickly before they get out of hand.

The complexity of wastewater treatment plant systems often means that isolating, repairing or replacing a damaged pipe requires an expensive and time-consuming shutdown of machinery. Water may have to be diverted and treatment ponds drained with new storage tanks found.

All of these issues are why wastewater treatment plants use SylWrap Pipe Repair Kits to repair and maintain their systems with the most popular solution being the Contractor Case. Each case contains enough products to carry out several repairs to pipes of all types and sizes. The kits are effective inside of 30 minutes, even when flow cannot be turned off.

When a treatment works has a Contractor Case on site, they know that should a pipeline unexpectedly fail and an emergency repair be required, they have all the equipment needed to fix the problem as soon as it arises. There is no need to source products or find a specialist to carry out a repair.

Away from wastewater treatment plants, several water utilities companies have also began keeping the Contractor Case on their vans, allowing their contractors to carry out emergency sewer pipe repairs whilst out on the road.
