Pipe Perfect: Swift and Silent Sewer Rehab in Fort Lauderdale

The wastewater pipes under an apartment complex in Hollywood, Florida, had to be repaired. Pipelining Technologies (PTI) rehabilitated the wastewater pipes in the building using BRAWO® SYSTEMS equipment. BRAWO® SYSTEMS provided on-site technical support for the installation of the BRAWOLINER® using the BRAWO® Magnavity SX light-curing system.


Technical details

  • Pipe size: 6” pipe (DN 150)
  • Length of the rehabilitated section: 68 feet
  • Rehabilitation method: Installation of the seamless BRAWOLINER® textile hose, cured by light
  • Difficulty: Only one access point available
  • Rehabilitation time after cleaning: under 60 minutes


Project sequence

  1. Preparation and cleaning: The wastewater pipes to be rehabilitated were first thoroughly cleaned to ensure optimum adhesion of the liner.
  2. Installation of the liner: The liner was inverted into the pipe through the single access point. State-of-the-art technology was used to place the liner exactly in the intended position.
  3. Curing with light: The liner was cured using special lighting technology. The BRAWO® Magnavity SX ensured that the liner cured quickly and evenly within 60 minutes.


Advantages and results

The trenchless renovation method brought considerable advantages:

  • Minimal disruption: By using only one access point and not having to carry out any demolition work, the tenants and residents of the apartment complex were hardly disturbed at all. There was no construction site noise to speak of.
  • Time saving: The entire refurbishment was completed in a very short time. After cleaning, it took under 60 minutes for the work to be completed.
  • Efficiency: The use of light to cure the liner meant that the rehabilitated wastewater pipe could be put back into operation quickly.
