Repair of an underground water main carried out using SylWrap Pipe Repair products

Water Industry Leak Repair

SylWrap Pipe Repair Kits are used by the water industry to make rapid live leak repairs to burst pipes and mains on supply networks as soon as problems are identified.

Permanent repairs which are pressure resistant up to 30bar can be made to pipes of any diameter and most substrate inside 30 minutes without the need for formal training. Water flow does not need to be turned off to carry out a repair, avoiding costly and disruptive interruptions to supplies.

The ease of application and flexibility of a SylWrap Pipe Repair Kit makes it a lightweight, more versatile alternative to heavy, bulky pipe repair clamps. The speed at which SylWrap is effective means pipes can be repaired quickly, reducing the amount of precious water lost.

With nearly 3 billion litres lost per day on the UK’s public network, the industry has been told by regulator Ofwat to cut leakage levels in half by 2050. Suppliers including Southern, Affinity and Anglian have subsequently approved SylWrap Contractor Cases to be carried on their vans.

Each Contractor Case contains enough products for making up to six live leak repairs. Whenever a leak or burst is logged, the engineer simply reaches for their Case where everything needed to make a permanent repair is stored.

Contractor Cases are also approved by suppliers in Mexico and Malaysia, where they are used on Kuala Lumpur’s vast pipe network. Repairs have been made to water pipes in further countries around the world.

All the products in the Contractor Case have WRAS Approval, meaning they are certified to British standards as safe to use on pipes carrying drinking water. The Sylmasta Pipe Rerfurbishment System is also used by water companies to extend the lifespan of older pipes.
