Nu Flow’s patented lining system is manufactured at our 16,000 square-foot manufacturing plant in Ontario, Canada. Epoxies for drain, sanitary and storm lines meet or exceed the physical properties set forth in ASTM F1743 for CIPP rehabilitation and ASTM F1216 for Inversion rehabilitation. Nu Flow’s liner enhances the structural strength of host pipe and acts as a stand-alone pipe within a pipe, meeting or exceeding ASTM D790, D638 and D543 Standards. The life expectancy of Nu Flow’s liner is over 50 years and can be installed in pipeline with diameters from 2 inches to 8 inches and custom 10 inches and above.
Nu Flow’s drain and sanitary lining system has been successfully used in two primary types of applications: the ‘pull-in-place’ (PIP) method and the ’inversion’ method. Nu Flow specializes in the PIP method, where the liner is pulled into place, filled with epoxy and cured in place. The greatest advantages to the PIP method versus Inversion is the ability to line multiple 45° and 90° angles and the option of lining specific sections of pipe without lining the entire length. The other most common method of CIPP lining is Inversion, which is an alternate, less innovative technique, where the liner rolls out from the point of entry as it is filled with water, air or steam and, once cured-in-place, the end and connection points are trimmed to allow for flow.
Millions of linear feet of drain and lines have been saved using the pull-in-place process. We realize every building and project is unique and Nu Flow installers have the experience and technical knowledge to meet your specific needs, regardless of the depth of the pipe or corrosive nature of the environment.

Cured in-place pipe (CIPP) restoration can be used on a variety of piping applications including above and underground piping for non-potable water systems, potable
water systems, HVAC and sanitation piping systems. In-place pipe liner applications accommodate a variety of pipe sizes and will clean and line pipe down to 1/2 inch in
diameter and up to 10 inches.
Cured in place pipe (CIPP) lining is a way of relining the inside of pipes using a long fabric tube which is typically made out of fiberglass or polyester. The long flexible
tube is first wet out or saturated with a resin which is self-hardening by a chemical reaction, or heat is used to harden the resin. The heat is delivered through steam
injection or hot water.
The applications are almost limitless, including:
- Roofing drains
- Fuel transport
- Potable water systems
- Storm Drains
- Filtration systems
- Sanitation water systems
- Under-road piping
- Petrochemical facilities
- And many more
Valentine engineered two liner solutions to specifically handle straight pipes as well as pipes with multiple bends and elbows in both large and smaller diameter pipe
systems. Between the two technologies, Valentine offers complete no-dig installation through existing cleanouts. Valentine technologies repair all kinds of pipelines
from cast iron to orangeburg. The liners seal to the host pipe with no annular space. Among the many features, Valentine's technology handles corrosive
environments, repairs around 90 degree bends and spans void pipe sections, all without creeping or shrinkage. Valentine's technology can line from 4" (80mm) to 6"
(150 mm) pipe in one operation. Valentine's patented expandable material gives installers the capability to change diameter sizes any where in the line. Our change of
diameter tube gives you a full strength liner in both sizes without compromising the integrity of the pipe.
All of Valentine's lateral rehabilitation techniques can be launched through cleanouts. These patented techniques keep digging to a minimum which saves money.
Valentine's systems can also start and stop anywhere in the line which again can save significant money while enabling technicians to fix problems anywhere in the line
at any length.
The Valentine Infinity Inverter is a pipe-lining system that involves the roll-out from a single-entry access point of an epoxy-saturated liner that cures in place inside
the host pipe forming a strong, protective structural pipe. The Valentine Infinity Inverter continuously feeds tube so you are not limited to the length of tube you
can invert in a single application.
Valentine uses inversion in situations where it is more effective and efficient than the Valentine pull-in-place method.
LATERAL CONNECTION LINERS
Valentine's lateral lining products are ideal to remotely fix damaged pipe anywhere in the line. Our products are user friendly and easy to install. All of our products can
be installed via the clean out. These products can save you time and money compared to the alternative of replacing pipes completely.
