Fluid Plumbing Usage and Long Term Preservation.
ELIMINATING THE EFFECTS OF MOISTURE ON PIPE SURFACES
and preserving metal:
in this case it's copper surfaces in severe moisture conditions.
Case Study - Moisture sweating on copper soldered pipe.
The pictures shown below were taken a year and a half after completion of a new installation of pipe. The pipe was run from the replacement of a frozen ball valve to the water filter and softener in a basement with rock walls. This is the second summer since, with severe condensation and sweating on the cold pipe surface as water comes up from the well. For six months of the year, from May through October, This pipe sweats 24 hours a day and the water dripping on the floor of the basement makes it look like there are leaks in the pipe, but there are none.
The pipe was sprayed with USA Fluid at the end of the installation and it has preserved the copper and kept it in mint condition. See the close-ups below taken over the span of the pipe run.
||This is the Tee Joint where the water line comes up from the well feed and ball valve. Almost no corrosion is on the solder joint, even with all this sweating all this time. Without USA Fluid by this time the entire fitting would be green with corrosion.|
||Here's an overall view of the copper line that runs along the wall to the filter. It looks as good now as when it was put in.|
|A further close-up of the pipe and the sweating. You can read the labeling on the pipe from when it's manufactured. USA Fluid has preserved this pipe. It's in a state of suspended animation against corrosion. ALL Metal - Brass, Copper, Iron, white metal will remain in New condition when sprayed in this manner with USA Fluid.|
