Waco, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mr. Rooter and ACE DuraFlo Systems announce an exclusive agreement that allows Mr. Rooter franchisees to expand their menu of services with the addition of miniE®, an epoxy pipe restoration technology.
MiniE® was created as a service tool allowing a single operator to restore a section of pipe in a matter of hours as opposed to restoring the entire home's piping system, which typically takes several days.
"Our primary focus is to exceed our customers' expectations," said Mary Kennedy Thompson, president of Mr. Rooter Corporation. "Adding the miniE® system to our menu of services keeps us ahead of other plumbing repair companies and deepens the level of service we provide our customers."
ePIPE® is a patented system that applies an epoxy barrier coating inside an existing piping system. ePIPE is designed to protect against leaks, enhance water flow and stop the leaching of heavy metals such as lead and copper into the water supply.
"The miniE® program was developed in response to the growing demand from our customers and the plumbing industry," said Al Dee, president of ACE DuraFlo Systems. "Consumers have been asking ACE DuraFlo for an in-place ePIPE® restoration program aimed primarily for the restoration of failed piping sections or the restoration and protection of failing single water lines within a building."
Established in 1970, Mr. Rooter is the largest all-franchised, full-service plumbing and drain cleaning company in the world with approximately 300 franchises worldwide. Recognized by Entrepreneur magazine among its "Franchise 500" and Franchise Times Top 200, Mr. Rooter franchisees provide services to both residential and commercial customers. Mr. Rooter began franchising in 1974 and is a subsidiary of The Dwyer Group, Inc.
