What kind of problems does NuFlow structural lining technologies address?

Group 8370 (2)

Aging and Corroded Sewer Lines

Most facilities/structures built prior to the early 1970s have sewer lines composed of primarily cast iron and clay. These lines are subject to cracking and rusting out at the bottom, which leads to root intrusion at the joints and cracks.

Root intrusion into sewer pipe systems is reported to cause 50% of all sewer blockages. Interference of trees into sewer systems is likely to occur in older systems and in cracked pipes. Factors that contribute to damage include older pipes with joints, shallow pipes, small-dimension pipes and fast-growing tree species. Cost associated with caring for root intrusion in the past has been expensive and laborious and unfortunately, is rarely a long-term fix.

NuFlow structural lining technologies protect against further intrusion in joints and cracks. Because of the nature of root intrusion, it is best to reinforce and protect pipes before major intrusions have taken place.

Ground Movement Affecting Pipe Integrity

Major seismic activity can cause breaks in sewer pipe lines, but more frequently, minor seismic activity causes cracking and structural damage at the joints.

The seamless, “jointless” nature of the NuFlow pipe lining method means not only is the existing problem solved, but the new, seamless pipe will avert future problems as well.

Calcification in Sewer Lines

Over time, sewer lines will calcify as calcium deposits from the water build up over time and create a coating that clogs up household pipes and drain lines. This is especially true for buildings with hard water due to its high levels of calcium.

NuFlow epoxy lining makes it impossible for calcium deposits to adhere to the interior walls of the new epoxy barrier pipe, preventing future calcification.

Where Can Pipe Lining Be Used? Just about Anywhere!

Corrosion and pinhole leaks are the main culprits in thousands of plumbing issues every year, from single family homes to multi-story commercial buildings. Older buildings are more likely to have copper water lines and drains made of cast iron, both subject to corrosion over time.
