Case-study Dunblane Estate

Relining pool pipes at Dunblane Estate

Site:
Pool at home in Dunblane Estate, Pomona ,Guateng System: 2 x 50mm PVC suction pipe networks, and 2 x 50mm PVC return pipe networks ,with a total length of 100m.

Situation:
A network of 50mm PVC pipes situated beneath stone tiling were leaking.

Circumvention:
The action of replacing the aforementioned pipes would result in chopping through the expensive stone tiles, as well as a section of the swimming pool. After the pipe replacement, the damage would need to be rectied, and the stone tiles replaced.

Solution:
By using Nu Flow’s potable water pipe relining system, Nu Flow South Africa was able to reline the pipe. Firstly, the pipe was sandblasted to remove any dirt and create a rough surface, for the epoxy to adhere to. The epoxy was then air-blasted throughout the pipe network coating the inside, this resulted in a barrier coating all the leaks, and inevitably sealing them. The pond and surrounding areas did not adhere to any damage ,as all work was done from existing access points.
