The City of Atlanta performed several lab studies which led to a successful field trial. Previous treatment of zinc ortho phosphate left the distribution system clogged with corrosion tubercles and higher than desired lead / copper results. The studies using SeaQuest showed:

  • A 94% reduction in standing pipe loop lead release
  • A 60% reduction in standing pipe loop copper release
  • A 56% reduction in mild steel corrosion coupon rates
  • A complete cleanout of several sections of distribution pipe with no impact on water clarity

The results were achieved without the addition of lime or caustic to boost the natural pH.
