For years, Steve Allen was frustrated by his inability to effectively tackle what he believes is a large potential market for pipeline rehab work: lining vertical stack pipes that are failing in condominium and apartment buildings.
But all that changed when Allen — the owner of Allens Plumbing in Hawaii — learned about the tee liners made by Repiper AB, a Swedish-based company he ran across at a recent Water & Wastewater Equipment, Treatment & Transport (WWETT) Show. (The product is distributed in the U.S. by APEX CIPP Solutions and Pipe Lining Supply.)
Maxliner’s customer, Royal Flush Plumbing recently completed a CIPP lining job for St. Prius Church in Providence, Rhode Island. The church’s pipes had severely deteriorated. They were hidden behind marble and granite, and encased in concrete. Marc Watson, owner, Royal Flush said “It was a risky project. We didn’t know what we were going to find behind the walls.”
