WSIOL, Inc. uses the newest technology that has been tested and proven it works. The idea of encapsulating fresh pure drinking water from the source and delivering it was done in California in 1903. Now with 21st Century technology we can do it again with a slight twist. Under the sea.

The test case closest to WSIOL’s project can be seen in the Mediterranean Sea.

TRNC Water Supply Project

The project is unique in the world and was realized in 2013 after a long planning period. REINERT-RITZ was selected as a partner for the connection of the 500 m long PE pipes.

Municipal water systems that installed ductile iron pipe (DIP) 20 or more years ago are failing at an alarming rate. Cities like Duluth, Minnesota have been forced to address water main breaks and leaks with costly repairs to the DIP. And despite the financial investment, not to mention the time and inconvenience, these repairs are like putting a bandage on a proverbial compound fracture.

Large Diameter HDPE Pipe – What’s the big deal?

Large diameter pipe has been around for a while. It’s not new technology.

There is however a perception that large diameter HDPE is the smart phone of the telephone family. While HDPE does have numerous advantages that mirror the value of having an iPhone, the perceived youth of large diameter has a narrow world view to blame.


The Evolution of Potable Water Pipes

Ductile iron was first used in water supply networks in 1955. It replaced cast iron pipe, which dominated water conveyance for decades. Although the switch reduced catastrophic circular breaks and corrosion found with cast iron pipe, it did not eliminate these issues, as ductile iron still corrodes and breaks.
