HBOI-SS-Piping

The replacement of water pump piping from schedule 80 PVC to stainless steel was recently completed at Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute (HBOI) at Florida Atlantic University in northern St. Lucie County, FL.

Farmer & Irwin along with Morganti Group provided the solution after HBOI reported repeated leaks and inconsistent pump activation. The replacement project included the re-piping of three domestic water pumps. The pumps are in constant operation providing the RO domestic water supply for the 32 buildings on the 144 acre campus. Since completion the water pressure remains constant and pumps run and alternate as designed providing consistent water pressure and extended pump service life.
