Expert Solution for Unique Pipes
Guests at a luxury hotel on the Las Vegas Strip started complaining of gurgling and slow drains, and occasional odors, putting the hotel’s reputation (and revenue) at risk. SPT’s team of pipe experts cleaned the pipes with a cyclonic method specifically made for the hotel’s unique piping system. A follow up camera inspection showed the pipes were clean and clear, and the rooms were put back into service.
The maintenance staff tried to fix the ongoing problems by snaking the drains and even considered tearing out walls and replacing the pipes, but their hard work did little to fix the problem. The facilities manager was left scratching his head about how to fix the problem until he called SPT.
After a review of the building’s Sovent plumbing system, they realized that most complaints were concentrated on the same vertical stack of piping, and because of Sovent’s unique fittings, traditional methods of cleaning were unlikely to solve the problem.
The solution specific to this type of plumbing system is Total Pipeline Cyclonic Cleaning. Unlike other methods, cyclonic cleaning uses a vacuum to create a suction through an access point at the bottom of the stack. A mild aggregate is then introduced into the drain, creating a “sandblast” effect on the inside of the pipe. Within a week the job was complete and didn’t require opening up walls or ceilings. A follow up camera inspection showed the pipes were clean and clear, and the rooms were put back into service. Following the cleaning, customer complaints regarding the plumbing in those rooms dropped to zero. The project was so successful that SPT was contracted to apply the process to 100 more drain stacks over the next three months.
Following the cleaning, customer complaints regarding the plumbing in those rooms dropped to zero.
