“I was against this stack lining project before it started. I didn’t think it was going to work. Now that I’ve seen the whole process, I’m a big supporter. I’m really impressed, it’s just so much less disruptive than a stack replacement.”Chief Plumber, Multi-story Residential Complex
“I used to think about this issue every day. I haven’t thought about it now in over a year.” - Director of Facility Maintenance, School Division
“The alternative would have been a massive project. I don’t even want to think about how disruptive and costly it would have been. You guys really bailed us out on this one.”Project manager, Senior Care Facility
“I love innovative companies like Revive Pipes. Your service is so much less invasive than the old way of doing things and it actually saves us money.” Facility Maintenance Manager, Multi-story Residential Complex
I’m so glad that I didn’t have to approach all of our tenants and tell them we need to do another construction project in their space.”Property Manager, Commercial & Retail Management Company
“We’ve been fighting with this drain for years now. We’ve probably had ten other contractors look at it before [Revive Pipes] and nobody else was able to fix it. I can’t believe the other contractors contributed to the problem by breaking equipment off inside of the pipe and leaving it there. I’m really impressed that you were able to retrieve their equipment and fix the root of the problem.” Director of Facility Maintenance, Senior Care Facility Organization
“After [the other CIPP lining company] ended up cutting holes in the wrong place in the pool deck and not fixing the problem, I was pretty skeptical about [Revive Pipes]. You guys did a great job and the fact that you didn’t need any holes cut in the pool deck is awesome. The pool would have opened at least a month late if it wasn’t for [Revive Pipes]” Project Manager, General Contractor
“Because of the proximity of the pipe to the foundation, replacing the pipe would have been a big undertaking. I got a couple of quotes to replace the pipe, but they were so expensive we had to find an alternative.” Project Manager, School Division
“It would have been a huge job digging down to replace the sample line. I don’t know how we would have done it. The facility is in a low spot and the water table is so high in this area we would have had to be continuously pumping out a lot of water.” Power Engineer, Power Generation Facility
“If your solution hadn’t worked, we would have had to permanently close the elevator. We probably would have had to close the second floor in that wing of the facility as well because the staircase is so narrow.” Facility Manager, Historic Government Building

NuFlow Installer | Revive Pipes has been Nu Flow's exclusive Nu Drain, Cured in Place Pipe (CIPP) installer in Alberta for the better part of the past decade. The high profile sewer rehabilitation projects that we have completed inside of buildings in Edmonton and Calgary have forged Revive Pipes reputation as an elite installer in Nu Flow's worldwide network of licensees of the Nu Drain system.
Nu Flow has been a world leader in developing and manufacturing patented Cured in Place Pipe (CIPP) systems that are uniquely suited for rehabilitating wastewater systems inside of buildings. Sewer systems inside of buildings are significantly more complex than systems outside of buildings for many reasons including:
Smaller pipe diameter
Multiple bends in the pipe
Multiple branches of varying sizes connecting to the pipe being lined.
The area above and adjacent to the pipe is occupied by people living or working
Nu Flow developed a patented Cured in Place Pipe (CIPP) liner assembly that uses a pull-in-place (PIP) installation method unlike most Cured in Place Pipe (CIPP) assemblies that use an inversion installation method. The pull-in-place system used in conjunction with Nu Flow's patented Nu Drain system allows us to install liners in many situations without excavating floors or demolishing walls to create access points.
The Nu Flow, Nu Drain system has the flexibility to also be installed from a single access point in some situations when a second access point is not available. Nu Flow Cured in Place Pipe (CIPP) liners can be pushed into place in situations where Cured in Place Pipe (CIPP) inversion contractors would likely have to create an excavation point for their access. Access points that we can install Nu Flow Cured in Place Pipe (CIPP) liners from include cleanouts, roof vents, toilet closet flanges and manholes.
The Nu Flow system can also form around ninety (90) degree elbows and bends without stretching and thinning of the lining material in the outer radius of the liner. This characteristic ensures the structural integrity of Nu Flow's Nu Drain liner is maintained throughout the bend, unlike an inversion liner.
The pull-in-place (PIP) installation method allows Nu Flow liners to be accurately placed, often with an inch of accuracy in a sewer pipe system. Cured in Place Pipe (CIPP) inversion systems suffer from inaccuracies and uncertainty in where liners will terminate in the sewer pipe. Because of the stretching fabric used with inversion lining and the difficulty in measuring liner distances around bends, inversion liners will often terminate at an unintended spot in the sewer system. This can leave part of the sewer pipe unlined or the inversion liner could go too far and block a branch connection or travel into a main pipe, blocking the main sewer line. Revive Pipes uses Nu Flow's patented Nu Drain system in these situations to remove the uncertainty of where the liner will terminate and ensure the sewer pipe is lined properly.
Nu Flow Cured in Place Pipe (CIPP) liners can be used in point repairs that are hundreds of feet from an access point on either side of the section of sewer in need of repair. In situations where all of the pipe except for a small section is in good condition, an installation of a Nu Flow spot repair avoids disruptive excavation or demolition.
As the exclusive Nu Flow, Nu Drain licensee in Alberta for nearly the last decade, Revive Pipes has the experience and technical ability to install Nu Flow Cured in Place Pipe (CIPP) in complex sewer configurations inside of buildings.
