Wastewater Treatment & Sewer Pipe Repair

SylWrap Leak Repair Kits and the Sylmasta Pipe Refurbishment System are used by wastewater treatment plants to repair and strengthen damaged sewer pipes, preventing the harmful and hazardous leak of contaminated water.

When pipelines fail in wastewater treatment works, the consequences can be severe. Leaks and bursts pose a danger to human health, are bad for the environment, and costly in monetary and reputational terms.

Companies who do not treat or dispose of wastewater safely can be hit with severe fines, not to mention the damage done to their name if they are responsible for a serious environmental incident.

There are many reasons why a sewer pipe repair might be required. Pipelines in wastewater treatment plants can burst or leak through wear and tear.

Contractors may inadvertently cut into a pipe, causing a breach. Most of the time, these problems come on suddenly, meaning that wastewater plants need to be able to react quickly.

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

All of these issues are avoided when wastewater treatment plants uses a SylWrap Pipe Repair Kit. Burst pipes can be sealed in under 30 minutes with pressure resistance to 30 bar without the need for any formal training.

This ease of application and rapid work time makes SylWrap ideal for fixing dangerous leaks as soon as they occur. There is no need to source replacement parts or hire specialist contractors; simply wrap the pipe for a permanent repair.

The most popular leak repair solution for wastewater management is the Contractor Case. Each Case contains enough products to carry out up to six repairs to pipes of all types and sizes.

It is stored easily on-site, meaning the wastewater treatment plant simply reaches for their Case to carry out a fast, live leak repair as soon as emergencies occur.

Prevention is of course better than a cure. The four-stage Sylmasta Pipe Refurbishment System protects, reinforces and strengthens pipes, extending their lifespan and reducing the chances of leaks and bursts in future.
