Serving Ontario Canada

A well-known solution for many water pipe problems...

Toronto, Laval, Montreal, Peterborough, and many other public drinking water suppliers apply a food-grade mineral onto existing drinking water pipes serving all their customers.

LEaC Shield also prevents pinhole leaks by...

Continuously coating the inside of your water pipes with a food-grade mineral.

The LEaC Shield Process:

Step 1: Provide a free assessment of your building's water distribution system. This assessment is completed in one day.

Step 2: Issue a Report which will describe typical pipe leak problems. The report shall provide the cost to implement a solution tailored to your building's unique conditions. This report is provided in 1 week.

Step 3: Implement our program. This involves: a) adjusting water flow rates by installing balancing valves and modifying water pumps (only when truly needed), b) adjusting water temperatures (when beneficial), and c) installing our equipment; often within 1 week.

Benefits of the LEaC Shield Program:

Installation can happen very quickly; usually in one eight-hour period.

Water leaks are quickly stopped for the remaining life of your building. The life-time cost to prevent leaks is 25% of the cost to replace or epoxy coat your pipe. The initial investment to prevent leaks is 3% of the cost to epoxy coat or replace pipe. No need to significantly deplete your Capital Reserve Fund.

Excess Lead contamination within a building's copper pipe is eliminated.
