The CuraFlo Engineered Flow Lining System® is our proprietary process for restoring small diameter (1/2″ to 4″) water pipes using our flagship CuraPoxy® epoxy formula.
When our pipe repair process is complete, water pressure/flow is restored (often improved), leaks are eliminated, and your pipes are protected from future corrosion. Here are the key steps in this pipe repair process:
First, our certified technicians disconnect valves and hook up hoses.
Then pipes are dried with pressurized hot air, supplied from a compressor.
Next, pipe interiors are gently “sandblasted” with specialized particles to remove all debris and mineral build-up and prepare the internal surface of the water pipe for bonding with the epoxy.
Our specially formulated epoxy, CuraPoxy®, is then blown through the pipes using a vortex of air to transport the epoxy, to evenly coat the interior, creating a seamless, permanent, protective barrier.
Hoses are disconnected and CuraPoxy is allowed to cure 5 hours.
New fixture valve/fittings are installed and final testing is performed. This testing ensures no water leaks remain and that full water pressure/flow has been restored to the system.
Lastly, water is turned back on and service is restored.
