I&I repairs

Is I&I washing away your bottom line?

You are a city or county engineer or superintendent dealing with inflow and infiltration across your system that is adding 

hundreds, maybe thousands, of gallons of water to your treatment volume. Even if your system isn’t at or near capacity, treating all that extra water costs money, money you desperately need for other expenses.

 

You could do nothing. The infiltration probably isn’t doing too much damage, though it is
possible that voids are forming around your pipes where the leaks exist.

 

But what is the cost of doing nothing?

Let’s look at a real example. A mid-sized city in Ontario had a stubborn, gushing leak into a
manhole to the tune of 1380 liters or 364 gallons per hour. That’s 12.1 million liters or
3.2 million gallons every year. For more than five years. Using a conservative figure of $3 per gallon for treatment, that adds up to $9600 per year that could be spent on much needed maintenance—including sealing leaks—or other budgetary needs.

 

What is the solution?

The Ontario city had certainly tried to stop the leak. Several contractors tried over the years,
to no avail. The now-skeptical municipality agreed to try chemical grouting with our Prime Flex 920, a hydrophobic polyurethane that filled the void behind the manhole and created a watertight curtain. The persistent leak was sealed in an hour. Their investment was recouped in less than five months.

 

Prime Flex 920 is one of multiple products from Prime Resins that you can have in your arsenal to fight I&I. Whether you need to curtain grout a manhole, seal fine cracks in a potable water tank, stop manhole or pipe leaks prior to lining, or seal culvert joints, Prime Resins has a product that meets your needs.

 

Weeping leaks , hairline cracks

AR 800

Acrylate, very low viscosity, low toxicity, elastomeric gel, primarily for geotechnical applications, NSF/ANSI 61.5 compliant for potable water use

AR 870

Acrylate, very low viscosity, low toxicity, elastomeric gel, primarily for geotechnical applications, NSF/ANSI 61.5 compliant for potable water use

Prime Flex 900 XLV

Hydrophilic polyurethane, single-component, extra low viscosity, NSF/ANSI 61.5 compliant for potable water use

Prime Flex 900 MV  

Hydrophilic polyurethane, medium viscosity, single-component, for medium to wide cracks

Prime Flex 920

Mainline and lateral grouting

PR10 ACLM

A super low viscosity acrylamide grout that yields a gel upon reaction. Available as granules or liquid, the grout solution is as thin as water, allowing PR10 ACLM to follow infiltrating water for sealing leaks or to deeply penetrate soils for soil stabilization. The gel time is adjustable from a few seconds to several hours. The cured grout provides an economical water barrier or soil stabilizer. Seal leaks in sanitary and storm water mainlines, pipe penetrations, laterals, lift stations and manholes. Stops leaks in tunnels and mines.

 

 

Gushing leaks

AR 800

Acrylate, very low viscosity, low toxicity, elastomeric gel, NSF/ANSI 61.5 certified for potable water use, primarily for geotechnical applications

Prime Plug

Hydraulic cement product to stop water flow prior to crack injection

Oil-free oakum

Oil-free jute roping

 

 

Void fill and soil stabilization

Prime Flex 910

Very low viscosity, hydrophobic, single-component polyurethane resin that reacts with moisture when injected into soil to form a rock hard, water-tight mass. Used to stabilize loose soil or sand, stop underground water flows and seal leaking seawalls.

Prime Flex 920

Used for permeation grouting of loose soils to consolidate soil particles and increase the load-bearing capacity.

AR 800

Very low viscosity, hydrophilic grout that produces an elastomeric gel with variable set times. This
three-component resin is used for leak sealing and soil consolidation.

Prime Flex 985 LX10

Hydrophobic polyurethane, low viscosity, two-component, ideal for wet conditions. (Does require specialty equipment, so contracting may be preferred.)

Prime Flex 985 LX20

Hydrophobic polyurethane, low viscosity, two-component, ideal for wet conditions. Double the expansion
capacity of 985 LX10. Certified NSF/ANSI 61.5 compliant. (Does require specialty equipment, so contracting may be preferred.)

Prime Flex 985 5.0

Cartridges: Hydro insensitive polyurethane, low viscosity, two-component, high strength/ high density, bonds with concrete
