Brinks Services and CuraFlo of San Diego reports it recently completed cleaning and restoring the hot and cold water pipes and the water circulating system with its epoxy lining at The Villas of San Luis Rey Condominiums at 5048-5094 Via Manos in Oceanside.
The complete hot and cold water system is copper, which is experiencing pinhole leaks due to the effects of water corrosion, deterioration from soil and electrolysis.
Epoxy pipe lining is a process that cleans and lines corroded metal plumbing systems while adding an interior epoxy coating -- a pipe within a pipe -- that seals and protects pipe interiors from further corrosion and water contact.
The epoxy flows into and through all pits, crevices, pinholes and fractures, bonding to the cleaned and prepared walls of the pipes.
With 48 tri-level units, the $225,000 job is one of the largest epoxy-lining projects ever undertaken in North San Diego County.
There are 12 one-bedroom, one-bath units; 36 two-bedroom, two-bath units. Representing the condominium was Judith Stalder, CMCA, of Morning View Associates, LLC.
