Trenchless Pipe Repair
In a nutshell, Trenchless Pipe Repair means we can restore your failing sewer pipes and water lines efficiently and effectively, without tearing up your property. A variety of advanced techniques are at our disposal to ensure that your property stays in tact while we repair your pipes.
The most common form of trenchless pipe repair is called “Cured In Place Pipe” Lining or “CIPP” for short. CIPP lining is where a new pipe is created “within the existing pipe” utilizing only one or two points of access. A saturated felt that is impregnated with epoxy resins creates the structural strength of new pipes without damage to structures, floors, hardscape, or landscaping. The process has been in use now for well over 25 years.
There are two primary types of CIPP applications; The ‘pull-in-place’ (PIP) method and the ’Inversion’ method. Pipe Restoration Solutions specializes in both methods. After our due diligence, we will determine the best application for your property. With both types, the liners are custom built for your pipes.
The “Pull-in-Place” lining application starts with a felt liner soaked in epoxy and pulled into place through the system. When the felt liner is in place, a rubber bladder is expanded internally using air pressure to help the epoxy adhere to the interior of the pipe. A pull-in-place application can be used through 45° and 90° angles. Pull-in-place application also allows you to line certain pipe sections as opposed to the entire length.
The other common method of CIPP lining is “Inversion”, which is a more traditional technique, where the liner rolls out from the point of entry as it is filled with water, air or steam. Once cured-in-place, the end and connection points are trimmed to allow for water flow.
Millions of linear feet of piping have been saved using “Cured in Place Pipe” lining. Whenever possible, we work to eliminate waste and unnecessary use or destruction of resources.
