San Diego, CA, August 22, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Nu Flow recently provided a non-destructive pipe rehabilitation solution for the equally innovative, world-renown science laboratory, Salk Institute, in La Jolla, CA. Nu Drain was utilized to line and restore the campus’ aging underground sewer main in-place, which prevented any damage to the laboratory campus’ brilliantly beautiful architecture.
“We are pleased that we did not have to resort to tearing down walls or digging up a trench through occupied historical walkways,” said Tim Ball, the Senior Director of Facility Services for the Salk Institute. “We were up and running in a couple weeks as opposed to a couple months.”
Approximately 300 feet of a 4”-wide underground sewer main was lined using Nu Flow’s patented, non-invasive process. The pipe line runs about 10 feet beneath luxurious travertine tile blocks that make up the floor in the outdoor corridors. These tiles, being the originals from the research institute’s 1960s construction, would be very expensive and difficult to replace.
Nu Flow’s unique and eco-friendly drain line technology, Nu Drain, was used to line and protect the underground main from forming cracks, buildup or root intrusion in the future. This Pull-in-Place solution was accomplished by using existing access points, which prevented any destruction to the campus’ architecture, a messy construction site and disruption to the campus’ normal operations.
Instead of a messy, time-consuming and disruptive recipe, this customer chose Nu Flow’s innovative solution. Nu Flow is proud to have saved the famous Salk Institute a significant amount of money, time and inconvenience. Instead, the great minds at the institute can put that money and time toward their lifesavings projects, such as curing cancer, AIDS and diabetes.
