PipePatch Saves Tax Payers Money

Author Info

“The Town of Grand Island repaired an 8-inch pipe buried 13 feet deep. The line was only 6 feet from the edge of East River Road and about 25 feet from the river, under an 8-inch cast iron water main, about 4 feet underground. If the town had gone with a conventional repair, instead of the PipePatch, we estimated that it would have cost taxpayers over $10,000, including the cost of driving sheet piling to protect the road from collapse while we made the repair and replacing the resident’s driveway. In that one repair, we saved enough to pay for the system. And I still have three patch kits available for future use. Plus the entire process – from start to finish – took just four hours.”
