Nu Pipe was used to rehabilitate a failing HVAC system in a 37-storey condominium tower on the Toronto waterfront. The galvanized 8-year old HVAC pipes had been eaten through by glycol, creating pinhole leaks. The patented Nu Pipe epoxy coating was blown in to the existing lines to protect them in-situ. www.nuflowtech.com
