Amid the anticipation of an upcoming football season, an Alabama university found itself facing an unexpected challenge. 

Preparations for the upcoming football season were in full swing. Maintenance and cleaning of the stadium sewer lines was a part of the routine, but upon closer inspection of the plumbing system it became evident that some of the lines needed more extensive attention. 

Three specific lines were the most troublesome. The initial pipe ran directly beneath the field, right along the 50-yard line. With plans already underway to replace the sod, the maintenance crew replaced the pipe without any problems. The situation was a bit more intricate for the other two pipes, so they sought the expertise of a local NuFlow Certified Contractor, Premier Services. 

The Premier Services team conducted a thorough assessment of the pipe conditions. The 8-inch concrete pipes, encased 10-12 feet deep beneath layers of concrete and rebar within the stadium’s breezeways were dangerously close to collapsing. Premier Services presented their findings along with a project proposal to line the pipes. With the new school year and football season starting in the next month, the school deemed it an emergency and approved the project right away.

The Premier Services team got to work by cleaning the pipes to prepare for the pipe lining. A NuFlow trainer was on site to offer job support as well. By utilizing existing access points in the plumbing system, the team shot a 143 foot and a 90 foot line with a NuTube Inversion Single Sluice, without any excavation or destruction to the stadium. They followed with a robotic cutter to reinstate the lateral connections. 

The entire pipe rehabilitation project, from initial camera to final inspection, took just eight days to complete. The customers were happy that they didn’t have to tear up their stadium or face any delays before football season. As proud season ticket holders themselves, the team at Premier Services couldn’t have been happier with the success of the project. 

NuTube Inversion equipment is engineered to the highest possible standards with the finest German craftsmanship, and is third-party tested to three times its working pressure. Each piece of equipment is constructed with the operator in mind, creating user-friendly and durable equipment that enables full control of the lining process along with enhanced safety features. 

NuFlow provides their network of Certified Contractors with the highest quality materials, technology, and know-how to repair the worst pipe system failures imaginable. All NuFlow equipment comes with comprehensive training and the 24/7 job support that NuFlow is famous for.
