How to Cut Down on America’s Water Waste

Dating back to Ancient Egyptian usage of copper pipes, humans have used water piping systems to transport water. Fast forward to modern America, where the country runs on over 2.2 million miles of water pipes. However, because the nation has so many pipes it can be hard to maintain this system.

In fact, America sees a water main burst around every 2 minutes, resulting in 6 billion gallons of treated water being wasted daily. These issues can be traced to the age of America’s water pipes. The Prestressed Concrete Cylinder Pipes (PCCP) and Ductile Iron Pipes (DIP) have a longevity between 50 and 100 years. However, due to rampant corrosion issues and maintenance difficulties, these pipes usually do not last until their full longevity.

Fortunately, a solution has arisen. Hobas’s Fiberglass Reinforced Polymer Mortar (FRPM) pipes can have a longevity of over 150 years, far more than any of its predecessors. They can also easily replace existing pipelines with minimal disruption to ensure America’s piping systems keep running. On top of everything else, they produce the lowest carbon footprint of any other piping system with only 579 kg of CO2/m. Ultimately, to cut down on water waste and carbon emissions, utilizing FRPM pipes are the way to go.
