Aiming to prevent further deterioration and leakage of water and sewerage pipes, Aqualiner has developed their Melt in Place Pipe (MIPP). This patented technology consists of a sock insertion, which when heated, expands and melts onto the inner pipe and forms a solid glass-reinforced thermoplastic layer. This process can increase the longevity of existing pipes and is the only product of this type to be approved to be safe-for-use in drinking water pipes. The UK has more than 251,000 miles of water pipes, where almost 75,000 miles of pipes are classed as damaged. Aqualiner firstly plans to sell the initial equipment in return for a small profit margin, but the materials and consumables used in the process will be sold to the licensed contractor directly as a second income stream. The third source of revenue is derived from fees charged to International territorial licensors for any Aqualiner sales. The product has been developed with support from Anglian Water, Severn Trent Water and Yorkshire Water and is approved to be installed in US drinking water pipes.
