Non-Destructive Pipe Repair Solution for Oceanside Complex

Pinhole leaks plagued this Oceanside, California, condominium complex for several years. After spending tens of thousands of dollars on temporary fixes, management knew that a long-term solution had to be implemented. Nu Flow was able to provide the customer with a proficient repair that prevented the destruction of the residents’ units.

Project: Use Nu Line to rehabilitate the leaking copper potable lines without having to dig up the pipes and replace them.

Site: Vista Way Village is a condominium complex in Oceanside, California. The complex is composed of 30 two-story or three- story buildings, each with 8 to 10 units. The property includes some ocean views and immaculate landscaping.

System: The entire potable system in all of the buildings. The pipe lines are made of type M copper, which is a thin and less durable metal pipe. The pipes’ widths range from 1/2" to 1.5". The pipe system is located under slab and in the ceilings throughout the condominium units.

Problem: This condominium complex had been plagued with pinhole leaks for several years. Repairing the leaks one-at-a-time cost the complex more than ten thousand dollars per year. The customer was determined to find an effective, long-term solution that would cause as little disruption to the residents as possible.

Circumvention: A traditional repipe repair would have been much more intrusive and destructive than Nu Flow’s in-place solution, and that is precisely why the customer did not choose a repipe. Replacing the pipes also would have cost 15-20% more.

Replacing the pipes also would have cost 15-20% more. “I had a great experience working with
