Aquam’s Serline first to meet new water industry standard

Aquam’s Serline lead pipe lining technology is the first to meet new water industry standards (WIS) for the in situ lining of lead service and communication pipes.

The new WIS 4-02-03 for Operational Requirements: In Situ Polymeric Lining of Service Pipes was published in November 2016.

It examined Aquam’s Serline lead pipe lining technology, assessing the quality management system’s compliance with the ISO 9001 international standard, operator understanding of the WIS standard requirements, and Aquam’s Harrier vans compliance with the new standard.

The Serline system uses 3M’s 166L Rapid Setting Polyurethane/Polyurea Hybrid Lining resin, which can help utilities reduce the levels of lead in drinking water to meet the quality standards for allowable concentrations of lead.

Health and safety organisation NSF International independently assessed Aquam in March 2017 before gaining approval.

“I am delighted that Aquam is the first company to meet the new water industry standard on in situ lining of service pipes,” said Aquam Operations Director Simon Langley.

“This sets us apart from our competitors and will give our customers added confidence in Aquam’s Serline lead pipe lining system.”
