The installer was able to successfully line the drain pipe without issue and quickly, using CIPP lining, start to finish in one night. Check out what our customer had to say!

The staff was very professional and knowledgeable. After set up, they started the project at 9:00 pm on a Wednesday night, and we reopened that area of the hospital at 11:30a the next morning. It was a remarkable accomplishment, 95 feet of drain line relined in 14 hours. I would recommend the company without any hesitancy and would use them again if similar circumstances arose." --Hillcrest Hospital Henryetta CEO

Founded in 1831, and Ohio's second-oldest liberal arts college, Denison University is a private, coeducational, and residential four-year liberal arts college in Granville, Ohio. Denison is situated on 931 acres of rolling Ohio hills with a 350 acre Biological Reserve and the historic Denison Golf Club.

Trenchless Potable Pipe Lining
The NSF 61 approved Neofit®+Plus Potable Pipe Lining System is a non-invasive option for leaking underground water services with inside diameters from 1⁄2" to 2". The Neofit®+ liner forms a continuous barrier between the existing pipe and drinking water in up to 300ft sections in any type of pipe, including copper and lead.
A homeowner from Pittsburgh, PA contacted a Certified Flow-Liner installer in hopes to find a non-invasive way to rehabilitate the existing water service line that was found to have dangerously high lead content.This particular water line was over 150ft long and at a 35ft decline to the curb stop. The traditional dig and replace method would have required a lot of excavation, but also a lot of demolition to the foundation and existing concrete structures on the property.With minimal disruption, the Certified Neofit®+ installer successfully lined the existing lead service line, making the homeowner's potable water safe for drinking (and showering) again.
"Your expert Neofit®+ lining installation has made an unlivable building back into a house.Before the lining, the lead was so high that even showering was not recommended. Now, the water is drinkable. (So say the lead tests --and it tastes great!) Given the long lot, the slope, the curving path of the pipe, the proximity to sewer and gas lines, the multiple step walls (and the resulting shallow and deep spots), I'm so very glad you could line the existing pipe. Digging it would have been a logistical nightmare. Another big plus: not having to disturb the old foundation in any way. I hope Pittsburgh and surrounding municipalities turn to Neofit®+ as a default option in dealing with our many lead service lines, and also with mains in need of lining. I wish you much success and many more jobs. I would recommend the Neofit®+ process with great pleasure to anyone." — Satisfied Customer in Pittsburgh, PA
