Nu Flow Retrofit Is Cure for Aging Inside Infrastructure
Over time, all drain systems develop problems, begin to fail and require attention. Replacing those pipes comes with the need to dig through floors and foundations or to cut through walls to access the pipes, which can be very time-consuming, costly and disruptive. However, this can be avoided with a pipe retrofit from Nu Flow. Nu Flow Pipe Retrofitting is a non-invasive procedure that creates a new pipe inside the existing piping system with no destruction to the surrounding building or landscape. Project: Nu Flow completed a pipe-lining project for Shands AGH Hospital in which Nu Flow used their Pull-in-Place liner to retrofit the sanitary drain system. Customer and site: Shands AGH, an 80-year-old, 367-bed hospital in Gainesville, Florida. System: Sanitary drain pipe system with significant portions under the hospital’s intensive care unit. The system consisted of 256 feet of 12” mainline sewer pipe with seven connections, 160 feet of 8” pipe with ten connections, 100 feet of 6” pipe with six connections and 100 feet of 4” lateral sewer pipe. Situation: The piping system was badly corroded with limited access since the majority of the system was running under the hospital’s intensive care unit. Re-piping was not an ideal solution for this problem as it would have required significant demolition and would have been disruptive to patients and staff. Solution: Nu Flow restored the entire system using the structural drain liner. The piping system was first jetted clean to restore the pipe’s capacity. A pull-in-place structural liner was then inserted in the existing pipe with the patented Nu Flow process, preserving the structure and avoiding reconstruction. Throughout the project Nu Flow worked a schedule to accommodate the hospital and to avoid occupant displacement. Nu Flow also took care to protect the surrounding structure which avoided any negative impact of the ICU.

The patented Nu Flow process avoids the need to dig or rip out walls to retrofit your pipes. With multiple piping solutions we can rehabilitate any pipe, anywhere.

Pipe corrosion in pipe systems is common in commercial, industrial and residential buildings. Whether you are experiencing problems now or are interested in preventing the inevitable failure of your plumbing system, Nu Flow is available to restore your peace of mind.
