NuFlow Authorized Licensee
At Drain Doctor Plumbing Specialist, we offer the leading patented plumbing technologies that allow us to repair and replace pipelines in the most effective way possible. Our team at Drain Doctor specializes in Nu Flow technology because it does not require old methods. In the past, traditional methods of drain repair and replacement involved harmful trenches across residential and commercial properties leaving home and business owners with damage to their landscape, driveways, parking lots, and sidewalks that would leave them with extra costs that stemmed outside of their budget. At Drain Doctor, we will never damage your property or leave you with surprise fees.
NuFlow vs Inversion
Nu Flow technology is beating out traditional pipe repairs and replacements when it comes to saving customers invaluable time and money. At Drain Doctor NY, our company is a proud, authorized NuFlow provider capable of helping customers repair or replace their broken sewer or water pipes with efficiency.
Nu Flow has several methods called pull-in-place pipe lining, and the epoxy coating system. Before starting the project, technicians must be able to determine if the pipe system in question is non-pressurized or pressurized to come up with the appropriate solution.
Nu Drain Technology For Non-Pressurized Pipe Systems
At Drain Doctor NY, our capable technicians utilize Nu Flow's structural lining process to fix up aged, broken, or cracked pipes that aren't pressurized. This type of trenchless service is compatible with the rehabilitation of storm drains, sewer mains, kitchen drains, lateral lines, chemical piping, industrial piping, and many other types of plumbing systems .
The sanitary and drain lining procedure can be divided into two methods: the pull in place method and the inversion method. Our technicians are fully trained to conduct PIP processes where needed. Pulled in place describes the actual procedure of putting the liner inside the ailing line, filled with epoxy and cured to take the place of the broken line.
Inversion is a no-dig repair method that's rolled out from any accessible point of entry while simultaneously being filled with steam, air or water. After the curing process, the connection and end points are trimmed to allow optimal flow. It's a method that works best for pipes that are laid out in a straight line.
Advantages Of The NuFlow Lining System Over The Inversion Method
Nu Flow has developed a special CIPP liner procedure that makes use of a PIP, or pulled in place installation. This is different from the usual method that uses the older inversion technique.
Today, thousands of feet of drain lines have been rehabilitated using the patented NU Flow procedure. Our trained technicians can have the pull in place system ready and combine it with the Nu Drain system for unimpeded liner installation, all without having to excavate your lawn, yard, or garden.
The Nu Drain procedure can typically be carried out via a single access point. The Nu Flow cured in place liner is then inserted in place. This procedure is more efficient than contractors who use the inversion method in their CIPP process as there's no need to create a new access point.
Nu Drain Structural Integrity Is Maintained On Pipe Bends and Elbows
Nu Flow liner technology is recommended when there's a need to rehabilitate wastewater systems inside properties, which is often more complex than systems found outside buildings. The entire pipe structure will more often than not contain multiple pipe bends, angles and elbows. Moreover, there will be multiple branches where pipes of different diameters converge together.
Nu Flow technology can be applied to pipe bends and elbows up to an angle of 90 degrees. The same trenchless procedure can be done to repair lines that have an angle of 45 degrees, all without compromising the liner material and the structure. The liner that replaces your old pipe will be significantly stronger than previous pipe allowing for long-term durability.
Eliminates The Need To Use Inversion CIPP Systems
Inversion CIPP invariably stretches the liner fabric, which adds to the difficulty in having to measure total distance whenever there's a bend in play. Inexperienced technicians will often make the mistake of having the liner terminate in an incorrect place, which leaves the section unlined. Or, the inversion liner can be overextended causing it to block any branching connections.
The Nu Flow system has the advantage as it is more accurate than inversion CIPP. In the hands of an expert technician, the repair can be accurate down to an inch in sewer pipe systems.
Small Piping and Nu Flow
If the problem is found in small-diameter piping systems, Nu Flow's pull in place system will perform better as it can provide greater coverage as needed. The trenchless technology allows technicians to line pipe systems that range from 25mm branch lines to the 65 mm ones.
Nu Flow Equipment, Tools, and Technology for Spot Repairs
The NuFlow Cured In Place Pipe liner may be utilized for spot repairs that span hundreds of feet via an access point located near the plumbing system. There are times when only a small portion of the entire sewer or water main is in bad shape; in these cases, a Nu Flow repair can do the job without the need to dig up or excavate along the line. The lateral lining products offered by Nu Flow allow our technicians to repair small areas or full sections anywhere in the line and above the ground. Once the liner is inserted, our capable technicians have full control of where it goes with accuracy without ever needing to dig up lawns, yards, walls, and flooring.
The NuFlow Cured In Place Pipe (CIPP) System
The trenchless process creates a new structural pipe within the existing line and at the broken or damaged section of the system.
Our technicians start with the mapping of your drain or sewer pipe system via high-end fiber optic cameras that transmit real-time images onto a viewing monitor located above the ground. This camera inspection procedure is important as we can obtain invaluable data regarding the condition, depth, and material of your sewer or water line quickly and accurately. The contraption is small enough to be able to get to any point in your plumbing and around angles, bends, and corners. In a short amount of time, our technicians will be able to find the source of the problem and its specific location inside the system. We will be able to measure the correct length of liner, thanks to the information provided by the inspection.
Then comes the drain cleaning procedure. Over the years, sewer lines and water mains accumulate calcified matter and deposits inside their pipes, eventually causing clogs and significant loss of pressure. Internal pipe diameter is greatly reduced due to the debris, but a good hydro jetting procedure can restore your system so that the inside of your pipes are as clean as possible.
A liner is coated with special epoxy resin and inserted into the existing pipeline. Once the contraption is in place, an artificial bladder fills the liner with air and makes it press into the walls of the original pipe. In just a few hours, the special epoxy hardens, effectively forming a new pipe within the host pipe.
The Nu Flow CIPP system resolves common sewer and pipe issues such as tree root intrusion, backed or clogged pipes, failures associated with non-pressurized pipework, and caved-in lines.
Nu Line Technology For Pressurized Pipe Systems
Nu Line trenchless technology can repair pressurized pipelines that are often used as water mains, conduit piping, compressed air systems, HVAC systems, grey water systems, potable water systems, and fire suppression.
Our professional technicians can map out the pipe system in question. We also find pinhole leaks via compressed air testing. Afterwards, we conduct a comprehensive cleaning procedure to remove any and all buildup, restoring the original diameter and flow in the process. The special epoxy resin is prepared and inserted via clean, compressed air pressure.
The epoxy is allowed to stand for a few hours in order to harden. It forms a solid protective barrier in the line where applied, effectively sealing the leaks, cracks, and defects in the line.
Nu Line for pressurized systems can resolve the following common pipe problems:
- Joint failure
- Pinhole leaks
- Pipe corrosion and discoloration of water
- Mineral deposit buildup that impedes flow
Nu Line technology can also be used to strengthen existing pipe structures even if there are no leaks or broken lines.
Why Nu Flow Technologies Are An Excellent Way To Repair Pipes
Traditional methods of sewer repair are considered a major headache for homeowners and business owners alike. It's expensive, disruptive, invasive and most of all, digs up precious landscaping, yards, lawns, and gardens. The property owner will also have to worry about putting the landscape back to where it was once the repairs are completed.
Trenchless technology's main draw is that there is hardly any digging required to fix broken pipes and therefore less disruption and reduced landscaping costs. What's more, it can rehabilitate ailing pipes in areas that will prove to be difficult for traditional plumbing repair. Broken pipes under slabs may be repaired remotely without any damage to the floor. Your interior structures and home exterior will be left untouched as well.
Trenchless repair offers minimal downtime for businesses and minimal disruption to daily life and business operations. When used in multistory living spaces, the residents won't need to find another living accommodation or relocate just because the pipes need to be fixed. Our technicians can perform the repair above the ground right next to the pipe where families or tenants are residing. Moreover, the repair process is quickly performed since digging is kept to an absolute minimum. Potential loss of profit and downtime is minimized or prevented altogether.
No trenches means it's safer for the individuals who are involved or affected by the problem. Without a long, deep trench, the chances of an accident or a mishap becomes almost non-existent.
Epoxy pipe lining via Nu Flow system won't create any landfill or any carbon emission as it's being made. This trenchless procedure is proven to leave the smallest footprint when it comes to job sites. Massive digging just to fix a length of pipe can prove to be harmful to your property and the surrounding infrastructure. Our technicians make use of a wet-out procedure to further reduce waste generated during the repair. No digging means there's no need to hire heavy machinery and trucks to get the sewer system back up and running. The entire process uses far less resources than other traditional plumbing repairs.
Nu Drain is a versatile technology that can be employed on a variety of different pipe diameters ranging from 3/4 inch to 12 inch pipes or larger. The Nu Flow system is ideal for restoring pipe systems, even those that have lots of bends, angles, and corners. Moreover, this trenchless technology can reline plumbing pipes, water lines, and roof drains on several types of pipe materials.
Clients save a massive amount of time and money when they opt in for the Nu Flow system. The absence of a trench means you won't have to have the resulting mess cleared up afterwards. For small line issues, a spot repair can be the perfect solution.
Nu Flow Offers A Durable Solution to Pipe Problems
Nu Flow liner meets all industry standards in safety and performance. The new flow liner not only fixes common pipe problems, but also prevents the same issues from happening in the future.
- A smoother interior. The cured section will have a smoother material which improves flow and prevents clogs from happening.
- Seamless and jointless. Seams and joints are the weakest link as they are prone to loosening or invasion by tree roots. The new material is very difficult to penetrate.
- Your system's life is prolonged. The new pipe acts as a standalone system and will last for 40 years or more.
- Resists corrosion. Epoxy pipe lining is the best solution for leaks, root intrusion, corrosion, calcification, and breaks in your pipes. Without deposits there won't be accumulation of debris and as such, calcification problems are minimized.
