The article offers information on the use of the process called CentrilPipe, also known as centrifugally cast concrete pipe (CCCP) by the Sabine River Authority (SRA) of Texas for fixing its siphons. It states that the siphons had cracked and were leaking for which SRA decided to go with cured in place pipe (CIPP) which did not work. CentriPipe was adopted in which spincaster and automated retrieval system is used to apply grout to pipe interiors.

    When water shortages occur, toilet water-saving becomes an effective way to solve the problem. We developed a new method that utilizes the accumulated flow rate to predict the flushing performance and to obtain design data for the development of high-efficiency toilets. The results showed that...
