Relining 258 pipes at Sun City, main hotel
Sun City, Main Hotel (Sun Soho)
The Main Hotel at Sun City which houses the Gambling area was experiencing water damage from the 110mm PVC full bores on the 3rd, 5th and 7th floor which were leaking into some of the hotel rooms, restaurants and reception area of Sun Soho.
Sun City called Nu Flow to assess to full bores and advise on a solution.
Nu Flow camera inspected the full bores to determine which full bores were in need of relining. It was determined that 258 full bores were in need of lining. Nu Flow cleaned the 258 full bores and then proceeded to reline them with Nu Flow’s structural lining technology.
An epoxy saturated liner was pulled into each pipe. Within the liner is a rubber bladder which was inflated when the liner was in position. The bladder was left inflated until the epoxy had cured. Once the epoxy had cured, the bladder was removed leaving behind a ‘nu pipe’ within the host pipe.
The relining was done working from the full bores on the roof and the downpipe outlet at the bottom of the building thereby causing absolutely no damage or disruption to the hotel rooms, casino, reception and restaurants. Guests were able to continue with their activities unaware that the pipes within the columns and walls around them were been rehabilitated.
