Greg Ward with American Electric Power had this to say about our application of HydraWrap to protect and strengthen their infrastructure, “First let me commend HydraTech’s Work. We have had no further leakage since your repair. The tunnel was inspected last year and no issues were found.”
HydraTech attended the Ohio Stormwater conference and displayed HydraTite and HydraLock as reliable trenchless repair methods for stormwater systems. Caleb Rutledge and Jennifer Williams both ran the booth and discussed how HydraTech can rehabilitate aging systems and help avoid costly replacement.
A new low-cost solution to leaking joints. HydraLock is the rehabilitation option for non-man-entry pipes. Each seal is custom-made for your project.
The anchors connecting a tank to the piers on which it rested had been removed and reinserted. This raised concerns of the piers’ structural integrity and reinforcement options were being evaluated. Two layers of fiber wrap were the chosen solution.
We train our field crew on everything that HydraTech does, over and over and over. The goal is to keep everyone working well together, develop and implement fresh ideas, and ensure that each employee is well-rounded.
There is a tendency for companies to utilize formal training programs to educate their employees. As this is a very constructed teaching method, it can be a costly and time-consuming means of disseminating information.
The challenge was to find an economical and efficient solution to eliminate further damage from severe joint separation within 36″ and 48″ storm pipes at SR 48 over the Great Miami River in Dayton, Ohio.
The engineer searched for a repair that would eliminate the leak and HydraTite’s customizability made it the preferred solution.
7 seals installed over previous repairs that had failed to eliminate the leak. It took two days to install these seals which will protected against infiltration and exfiltration for a lifetime.
HydraTite can be manufactured with a test valve that can be used to quickly test whether a seal has been properly installed and ensure there is no leaking. Many of HydraTech’s projects include air testing each of the seals after they are positioned over the joint or point of repair.
HydraTech was onsite for only two days to install these 7 seals. Previous repairs had failed to eliminate the leak, and so HydraTite was installed directly over the previous attempts. The pipe will be protected against infiltration and exfiltration for a lifetime.
Improvements to two major transportation corridors in Southwest Nevada required the relocation of a section of 84” water main. This relocation demanded a change in pipe profile grade, in combination with lateral offsets. A watertight seal was needed at the joints where the existing pipe met with the new pipe.
An HOA in Florida was repeatedly experiencing sinkhole issues due to the inflow (I&I) ofgroundwater and soil at the pipe joints of a 53” X 34” reinforced concrete pipe (RCP) stormwater drainage system.
The installation of 20” 304SS piping resulted in joint welds being out of compliance with ASME. The piping contractor needed a solution that complied with both owner specifications and ASME’s design codes.
HydraTech has been working on miles of cast-iron pipes below Buffalo New York for about a year now. The first two phases of the project are complete with approximately 350 seals being installed during these phases. The third and final stage will start soon, which is expected to include the installation of 160 seals.
A four-inch crack had formed in a reinforced concrete pipe (RCP) near a joint where this pipe connected to a steel pipe. As a result, there was an active leak in this 30” pipe that raised concerns of the crack growing, contaminating the potable water, and creating voids around the pipe leading to eventual total system failure.
Madison, a field service technician for HydraTech, explains the project in Buffalo. She discusses the specifics of what has been completed and what the next portion of the project will include.

An active mine had diverted the flow of water over a 10-foot by 6-foot box-shaped tunnel and the water had found its way into a joint. The resulting leak was threatened the limestone conveyer that ran through the center of the tunnel.
Carbon fiber wrap is a cost-effective and convenient material to utilize for bridge strengthening. The installation typically requires little to no demolition, traffic control, or reconstruction compared to other methods.
HydraTech is making time for team-building activities in 2022. Starting in February, we have set the first Friday of every month as a day all employees can attend a potluck lunch.
The engineering firm decided to use a mechanical clamp and wanted to reinforce the clamp to provide additional service life and protection. The HydraWrap Subsea Composite Repair system was selected to reinforce the clamps due to its capabilities of providing a structural reinforcement: its ability to cure in submerged and wet environments, and its ability to contour to the profile of the pipe and clamp.
HydraTech aims to get HydraTite on as many State DOT’s Product lists as. It can go on. The goal is to encourage DOTs to use this longer lasting solution over dig and replace or grout repair methods. This video outlines the demo preformed for ALDOT as part of the product approval process with that state.
HydraTech has been working with State DOTs for years but now efforts are being made to get HydraTite on approved product list. Every state’s approval process is different and Alabama required an in person demo.
The Chief Engineer decided to repair the failed pipe elbow utilizing a 4” Marine HydraWrap elbow kit, a Design Approved by the American Bureau of Shipping for shipboard piping repairs.
