Cured In Place Pipe (CIPP)

What is Cured-In-Place Pipe?

Cured, meaning hardened, is the key word in this phrase. You see, CIPP starts out flexible. We take a custom-fitted fabric tube (liner) and saturate it with epoxy. The tube is inserted into your existing pipeline – yes, the old faulty pipe – and navigated all the way through to the end. We then gently inflate the tube to the full diameter of the pipe and allow it to cure. Notice that word again – cure.

What started out as a floppy, gooey, tube is hardened by one of several means, ambient (natural, with time); UV light; steam; or other. In a nearly metamorphic way, the flexible liner transforms into a structural, sealed, solid form – essentially, a new pipe created within your old pipe!

By curing the pipe in place, there is no need to remove the old failed pipe. This eliminates the need for the destructive measures necessary to access the original pipe – trenches. Therefore, CIPP is considered to be part of trenchless technology.

Pipe Lining or CIPP

Pipe lining is cured-in-place pipe and CIPP is cured-in-place pipe. We use the terms interchangeably. At Pipelining Technologies, the vast majority of our pipe rehabilitation projects are installed via continuous inversion CIPP; this is structural pipe lining.

Advantages to Structural C.I.P.P.

The list of advantages to using CIPP (Pipe Lining) over conventional pipe repair methods is long. Some of our favorites are:

  • No destructive trench digging
  • No long-term water shutoff
  • Cost Savings of up to 30%-40%
  • 50-year life use expectancy
  • Possible increased flow
  • No displacement of residents (condos, businesses)

What makes trenchless sewer repair better than traditional sewer repair methods?

Trenchless sewer repair eliminates the need for large-scale destruction of floors and landscaped areas to conventionally replace the damaged pipes, the costs associated with replacing those surfaces, and limits the exposure to health and environmental risks created by major sewer excavations.

When is the city responsible for sewer lines and sewer backups?

Individual municipalities have varying rules regarding the line where private property (including underground drainage) becomes public property. Generally, your private sewer main, or lateral, becomes the responsibility of the city at the tap to the city sewer. Blockages and backups in the city sewer system can cause backups on private property, so identifying the location of the blockage is very important as it relates to responsibility.

How long does it usually take to do a trenchless sewer repair job?

In residential homes, a good rule of thumb is “one liner per day.” For example, if your home has a building main, two bathrooms, a kitchen and a laundry, that is five individual liners, hence five days of work. On large-scale commercial or high-rise condominium projects, more aggressive timelines are typical, with anywhere from two to four liner installations a day.

Is there a warranty on the work that is done and the materials?

Pipelining Technologies offers a full five (5) year parts AND labor warranty on every pipe lining job. This is four years more than a conventional Plumber’s one-year warranty and pipe lining carries a transferrable minimum fifty (50) year life-use expectancy.

Would we have to leave the home or business while the work is being done?

No. Pipelining Technologies works to stagger brief water shutoffs in a way that residential customers will have some facilities to use each day of the project. Since pipe lining can be performed in a much shorter timeframe than pipe replacement, there are typically only a few days of slight inconvenience in comparison to several weeks of water shut off with conventional pipe replacement.

Does trenchless sewer repair work on tall buildings such as apartments or condominiums?

Lining of vertical stacks in high-rise buildings is amongst the most cost effective and time saving applications of trenchless pipe lining, also known as CIPP, cured-in-place pipe. Conventional replacement of a vertical stack on a building of significant height can take weeks, even months to complete, and the residents are without water to the affected facilities for the entire time. Pipe lining can accomplish the same job in two days by lining from the roof continuously to the underground with little to no need to enter individual units.

3-Steps to Trenchless Pipe Lining

Video Inspection

We begin all pipe lining projects with a detailed forensic study of the existing pipe system by means of a HD video camera inspection. A digital copy of the video is yours to keep.

Sewer Pipe Cleaning

The sewer system is cleaned using hydro (water) jetting and/or a mechanical cleaning process that removes scale, buildup, debris, blockages and restores flow in the existing pipes. 

Lining & Reinstatement

Your cleaned pipes are lined with an epoxy saturated tube (liner). The tube hardens and the new structural line becomes stronger than PVC. Robotic equipment is used to reopen branch lines.
