Columbus Zoo & Aquarium
"The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium is a world of adventure that does a world of good. The Zoo is home to more than 9,000 animals representing 650 species from around the globe." The Aquarium's Discovery Reef found that a system pipe was leaking. To avoid the high cost and great inconvenience of replacement, a certified Flow-Liner® installer was contacted to utilize trenchless technology.Flow-Liner's certified installer had to recruit a scuba diver for assistance in the initial televising of the pipe. The Flow-Liner® installer, using the CIPP inversion method, successfully lined the pipe. The project was completed with only eight hours of on-site labor, and finished over the course of 24 hours. "[Flow-Liner] saved us from having to completely replace and reroute the piping. This not only saved us money but also time, very convenient to use this procedure." -- Director of Facilities
Moffat Pipe - New Raleigh Convention Center
The new Raleigh Convention Center (2008), is a 500,000sqft event center complete with 20 meeting rooms, a magnificent ballroom, a large exhibit hall and the beautiful street level mezzanine. Several hundred feet of drain pipes were found to be in need of replacement. The customer was looking for an alternative to traditional dig-&-replace, so their general contractor contacted a certified Flow-Liner® Installer. Utilizing the Flow-Liner® Cured-in-Place-Pipe lining system,11 pipe segments using 20+ liners, varying in diameters 4" to 8", were successfully lined. Several of the segments included bends, and several branch lines were reinstated with the use of a robotic cutter. The general contractor, Moffat Pipe, and the facility employees were amazed at the procedure and further impressed as the crew completed the project ahead of schedule. -"If given the opportunity, our firm would use Flow-Liner® again." --Project Manager of Moffat Pipe, Inc.
Erie Affiliates - Dayton Federal Courthouse
A Flow-Liner® Certified Installer was contacted by General Contractor Erie Affiliates to implement trenchless technology at the Dayton Federal Courthouse. A leak in the cooling water supply line was discovered. The line ran underneath the parking lot, making this the perfect job for non-invasive trenchless technology. After cleaning the pipe, the Certified Flow-Liner® Installer successfully navigated several bends throughout the pipe and efficiently lined the entirety of the pipe without issue, despite the discovery of a significant belly in the pipe.
"Your crew came on the project and worked professionally and cleaned up after themselves. There was a problem with the existing pipe in that a "belly" in the line caused an excessive amount of water, but the men took care of it without complaint and completed the job in a timely manner." - Erie Affiliates
