The pool was leaking vast amounts of water at the rate of thousands of gallons per day. When pools leak you are faced with a myriad of problems.

In this case the trenchless pool technician identified the leak as it was coming from the main drain system, approximately a 40 - 45 foot long piece of pipe was located under five feet of solid concrete. Having five feet of solid concrete above the drain system was bit worrisome. Also the pipe was made out of a type of pipe called ductile steel or iron. Ductile iron pipe is a pipe made of ductile iron commonly used for potable water. Upon investigation it was determined the Downers Grove Swim and Racquet Club was losing a ton of money every day in the form of leaking thousands of gallons of water, not to mention all the chemicals they put in the water too. To get an idea of the amount of water being leaked out, this 190,000 gallons pool would would drop as much as four inches overnight.

This was a unique trenchless pool pipe lining repair, since it was under five feet of solid concrete there was only one chance to get it right. If this proved to be unsuccessful then the repair would involve jackhammering up the bottom of the pool. Once the pool was drain and there was a small opening to access the drain lines, the liners were inserted with the proper amount of epoxy resin. At this point the liners are allowed to cure in place or to harden against the interior of the old, host pipe. Once the liner have fully cure in place in about a 5 - 7 hour window the new pipes were ready to be inspected and water tested.
