Does anyone have any experience with relining pipes?

I need to fix a couple pinhole leaks in some older pipes in our farm house and someone suggested ePipe relining and told me to check out to get some info. I looked at the site last night and it looked good but am still unsure about the process. Anyone have any experience fixing their pipe leaks this way?Thanks for any input.

I really think it depends on how many leaks we are talking about? If its just a couple the above posters are right, but are you talking some serious leaks throughout the house that would require tearing up of walls, etc. the latter wild obviously be very costly and then you could look more into pipe restoration with relining. You can find some more info about what you're asking about here:

SOURCE: We installed a Grundfos MQ3-45B series pump in our

These pumps are activated by a flow valve on the incoming pipe. You should fine a small device, with a cable leading from it, attached to the incoming pipe on the pump. This device is a switch that is activated by the movement of a magnet that is held inside the pipe - the magnet is in a captive housing inside the pipe and is moved by the flow of water through the pipe. When a flow is detacted the magnet moves slightly within its housing and that activates the switch that is strapped onto the outside of the pipe.

So, either you are experiencing a flow that is unexpected or unknown (leaking outlet somewhere) or the intenal component of the flow switch is faulty, The latter can happen if some foreign material has got into your system and is causing the magnet not to fully return to the 'off' position.

You can disconnect the pump and remove the flow switch component to inspect and clean it. That process should be fairly intuitive.

If I can be of any further help please respond with a comment.

SOURCE: My Whisperflo pump has a leak in my PVC pipe from

The correct way to repair this is to repipe the line. If you can't do that, your local hardware may have an epoxy putty that will hold against water pressure. I would only recommend that if the leak is between two pieces of PVC piping. If the leak is where the pump meets the PVC, I would recommend repiping the discharge.

Is Washer Leaking From Soap Dispenser Drawer? Try this first!

There are a lot of times that some problems can be fixed very easily by the owner themselves and at no cost at all. This is one of them.
Some people experience that the soap drawer leaks from the front of the soap drawer dispenser on certain cycles, this can be caused by a couple of things but could just be a very simple fix which you should try first before calling a engineer.

MACHINE LEANING SLIGHTLY FORWARD: This is the main tip and FIRST CHECK anyone should do before going on to the next tips. If a machine is not level and leaning forward the water that is in the drawer while filling will be forced forward and can easily get past the drawer and leak down the front of the machine especially if the dispenser housing is slightly warped. If this is your experience then first thing to do is to check the machine is level. Adjust the front feet on the machine to raise the front making it level or slightly leaning back. This will cause the water to be forced to the back of the soap drawer dispenser allowing it to go in to the machine and not out the front of the drawer. Make this the first thing you do as it can be as simple as that.

If this has not solved your problem then check for:

EXCESSIVE WATER PRESSURE: Some people have very good water pressure in their areas (normally cold supply), if this is the case and you have a cut off valve in your system at the filling pipes (red&blue pipes, sometimes red&grey) then you just need to figure out which water is being pumped in at that time and then turn that valve off slightly (NOT ALL THE WAY!) only slightly and this will slow the amount of water entering the machine. This will cause the machine to take a bit longer to fill so the wash will take slightly longer to complete. So please bear this in mind if you have adjusted the water pressure! It won't be a new fault!

Older!! 1/2'' elec. drill,needs new cord mod.# 107.25332 or 25832

The drill you are referring to is called a compact drill and NO do not put a 2 wire cord in it. With it being all metal and that old the internal electrical parts are not constructed to withstand a failure that might injure you. Give me a couple big citys near location and I will find someone that can fix the problem. But just installing the cord is not really that big of a problem what I would worry about is the failure of the electrical components on that old of a tool. Let me know either way and I will try and help.

Noisy pipes with hot water baseboard heat

The natural expansion and contraction of the pipes due to the hot and cold water is what makes the pipes sing. I'm not aware of a fix without repiping.
