Epoxy Pipe liner Sample

 

The Peerless Plumbing Sewer and Drain Repair uses an Nu Flow “Nu Drain” in-place pipe restoration process is an economical and efficient alternative to traditional plumbing pipe system replacement. Our Nu Drain epoxy pipe restoration system technology allows us to restore aged, corroded piping systems in-place to a “better than new” condition without the use of chemicals or mechanical devices. The Epoxy liner installed into the pipes interior will seal and protect the system from further deterioration, dramatically extending the systems life. The process can be used on a variety of pipe materials, which includes clay, concrete, metal, Iron, Steel, PVC, and fiberglass.

Peerless Plumbing’s pull in place structural liner process is unique and patented. This non-destructive procedure residents and workers to continue with their daily activities, preventing displacement, business closure and pipe system downtime.

This innovative, cured-in-place-pipe (CIPP) system creates a long term, structural pipe inside the existing host pipe system without digging or destruction to to buildings or landscape. The pipe system is rehabilitated to a better-than-new condition with an increased flow rate, eliminated weakened joints, sealed cracks and eradicating the chance of groundwater pollution. Our structural lining technology is best suited for pipe 3/4″ to 12″ in diameter with specialty applications available for larger Pipe systems.

    Peerless Drain & Sewer Repair & Pipe Restoration General work sequence

Step 1: Pipe system diagnosis and set up

Expose existing access points or create access points. The existing pipe system is inspected for integrity and breaks in pipe using a drain camera. Corrosion roots and missing sections in the pipe are located. Temporary bypass drain piping provisions are installed as necessary.

 

Pipe Restoration stepsStep 2: Pipe Cleaning

Debris, roots and corrosion are removed from the pipes using a Nu Flow pneumatic cutting tool. A wide variety of different cutting heads can be selected for use depending on the type of system and the severity of the buildup inside. The pipe is restored back to it’s original diameter.

 

Step 3:  Pipe Lining

An epoxy-saturated felt liner with an internal bladder is pulled through the cleaned pipe system, using the existing access points. The bladder is inflated, which pushes the epoxy liner along the internal circumference of the pipe. This liner can bend through elbows, Ts and Wyes.

 

Step 4: Cure and system Evaluation

The epoxy cures within hours. The bladder is removed, leaving a strong, seamless, structural pipe within the host pipe. This protective liner will prevent future failures. A final leak test and inspection is informed.
