This garden-style apartment community in Tuscon, AZ was suffering from multiple catastrophic leaks in the supply piping system, due to defective polybutylene piping. The repeated leaks were causing almost $200,000 in repairs annually for the property, leading management to hire SageWater for a complete replacement of the supply system. Our in-house crews removed the defective polybutylene, and installed a new CPVC piping system, without having to displace residents or interrupt water service. Our team also performed drywall and paint repairs, completing the project on-time and on-budget.
