Lateral Sewer Line of Century-Old Home Restored with Nu Drain

Nordic Mechanical Services Ltd. (NMS) has built a reputation as the leader in the HVAC services industry for Northern Alberta. When NMS became a Nu Flow Technologies licensee in 2016, it provided the company with the opportunity to fix pipes in place without destruction by using Nu Drain Cured-in-Place Pipe Lining technology. NMS used this technology to restore a century home’s sewer lateral line without disruption.

Site: A home built in 1911 in the Old Strathcona neighborhood of Edmonton, Alberta.


System: The residence’s sewer line consisted of 4-inch-diameter clay and cast iron sections that traveled to the main city line. Since the first section of pipe was underneath the home’s foundation and the remaining was under finished landscaping, the homeowner was looking for a no-dig plumbing solution.

Situation: Misaligned pipe connections lead to excessive tree root infiltration that ended up blocking 60 percent of the lateral sewer line. The homeowner of this century home wanted no disruption and no demolition within the house or outside landscaping since the home was recently updated. When comparing the cost difference between a traditional dig and replace, they chose Nu Drain CIPP lining, which was a cost efficient solution and avoided digging to renew the system. 

Solution: NMS was chosen to provide the CIPP service. NMS used existing access to the sewer lateral to inspect the line and clean the buildup and root intrusion by using pneumatic cutting tools. During this project the pipe lining process was completed with zero disruption or damage to the home or landscaping.
