Epoxy Manhole Repair Specialists in Forth Worth, Dallas, Texas

After decades of pipe failures and sewer backups, America’s wastewater infrastructure is deteriorating and experiencing corrosion. Many municipalities are combating this issue by rehabilitating corroded and leaking manholes that intake I/I and damage the overall system. Because manholes can account for up to 30% of unnecessary groundwater, organizations have recognized that rehabilitating manholes are essential to restoring the entire wastewater system.

Epoxy Coating Manhole Rehabilitation & Lining Sewer Manholes

Microbiologically Induced Corrosion (MIC) has been determined as a primary problem in most sewer systems. This occurs when bacteria combines with ‘sewer gas’ and produces a sulfuric acid. Extremely corrosive to concrete, steel and other metal, once the acid begins to damage the manhole, it can completely lose its ability to function properly.

With manhole rehabilitation on the rise, coatings have proven to be a beneficial product in fighting MIC and restoring manholes. Coatings create a barrier between the manhole and the acid, thus protecting the environment and adding overall service life to the system.
