Certikin ePIPE – The Ultimate Solution To The Age Old Leak Problem


Detecting and solving swimming pool leaks is the bane of every pool operator’s life. Aside from the cost of losing heated water and chemicals, long term leaks can potentially undermine a pool’s foundation and any nearby buildings. Early leak detection and intervention is essential. Certikin has the non-invasive answer to pool and spa leaks in the shape of a brand new genius product called ePIPE. So, there’s no more digging up of the pool or spa surround to solve the problem – ePIPE is the simple and highly effective answer! ePIPE is epoxy resin coating which gives a solid layer to the inside of pipes providing a firm barrier to leaks.


All that is required is to identify (by pressure testing) which pipe run is leaking and let ePIPE do the rest. With an estimated water loss of 3,500 litres per day through leaking pipes, the cost of maintaining this London swimming pool was forcing the owner to shut it down during the recent hot summer. Even worse, the traditional dig and fix option was uneconomical and would have resulted in the pool still being out of service well into the autumn. Certikin was tasked with repairing the leaking pipes using ePIPE’s patented technology and the project was completed in just one and a half days with no excavations required. The happy customer, Paul Harris said: “I now have a pool to be proud of and enjoy. The whole job was carried out without the destruction that excavation can bring, which no one else could offer.”

and Nightfall 5207 are laid in the extensive walkway behind the spectator seating area that surrounds the venue’s 50m Olympic Pool as well as in an adjacent lighting room and judges’ meeting room. The circulation area involved Leeway’s skilled team of fitters installing a border using Verona’s dark blue hue which was cut in on-site, perfectly complementing the main field colour.

Ecopure – The Clear Difference In Filter Media


Waterco’s Ecopure Glass media is fast becoming the preferred choice by many leading swimming pool and aquaculture specialists alike throughout the UK and Europe. Manufactured from the highest quality glass type and processes ensures a product second to none in both quality and performance and is a true environmentally friendly alternative to sand.


Whereas some other media


may contain a variety of contaminants Waterco’s EcoPure media is chemically inert for superior purity and does not contain any crystalline free silica or heavy metals. Ecopure is more efficient than standard sand as it removes 30% more material and pollutants than sand, saving on backwashing and the resultant water, energy and chemical treatment costs. It is less susceptible to bio-fouling and channelling due to the product’s controlled particle shape; therefore reducing remedial action and again less chemical treatment to kill pollutants. Being less dense than sand, you require approximately 20% less media to fill the equivalent filter. Waterco Ecopure glass media is suitable for both domestic and commercial swimming pool applications and has been used in a variety of animal installations including seal pools, penguin pools, bird pools and equine pools to name but a few.
