Our Expertise

Pinhole leak prevention for condos and commercial buildings

Left unmanaged, the soft water flowing through the copper pipes installed in Vancouver condominium and commercial buildings can quickly corrode pipes and lead to pinhole leaks. In turn, this causes mold, stains and other damage.

The Hytec Water Management System protects against soft water corrosion by continuously placing a microscopic protective coating of natural minerals on the inside of copper pipes. It also achieves the ideal water pH balance between acidity and alkalinity, without compromising water safety or quality. The result is a robust anti-corrosion system offering:

  • Long-lasting protection against copper corrosion
  • Low cost insurance against expensive repairs
  • Ongoing, reliable water management

“We have known about problems with piping in the lower mainland for over 20 years and there have been a wide range of responses to these problems including tearing out all of the piping buildings and putting in new pipes.
