California Chooses Nu Flow Pipe Retrofit During Remodel


When your pipes reach their expected useful life and begin to fail and leak, it may be a difficult task to access the system. In a situation where a pipe is located underneath or within a building, pipe replacement is not an optimal solution, as it causes disruption to ongoing operations. Nu Flow has the technology to rehabilitate pipe systems without digging trenches or access points by using their patented Nu Flow process. Project: Restore California State Office Buildings failing rain leaders. Customer: State of California, Department of General Services, which serves as business manager for the State of California. Site: California State Office Buildings 8 and 9 located in Sacramento, CA. System: Galvanized rain leaders on the exterior decks of the two 17-story buildings. The project included 120 five-foot segments and 120 ten-foot segments of 3 drain pipe. Each pipe extends from a surface drain directly into the concrete structure. Situation: Both office buildings had corrosion and buildup in the rain leaders, causing the pipes to leak within the concrete that encases the pipes. Traditional repairs would have required removal and reconstruction of a significant portion of the concrete building to access the pipes. A pipe retrofit from Nu Flow was chosen as part of an overall remodel of the building.

Retrofitting pipes without disruption to ongoing operations in the buildings is one of Nu Flows many advantages.

Solution: Nu Flow saved the customer from the cost and logistics of replacing the system, which would have caused extensive damage to the office buildings. First, Nu Flow removed all buildup and corrosion, returning the pipes back to their original diameter. Nu Flow rehabilitated the pipes with the patented Nu Flow process by pulling a seamless structural liner into place through access points on the outside ledge of each floor, greatly extending the pipes useful life. The work was performed around the schedule of the state workers to avoid disruption. Corrosion and leaks are common symptoms of a failing pipe system whether in commercial, industrial or 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.
