When evaluating pipe lining solutions, it’s important to keep in mind that not all pipe lining methods are created equal. In this blog post, we’ll discuss our process and the factors you should consider to ensure you choose the most suitable option for your specific needs.
We kick off our process with a thorough evaluation of your current pipes. Employing cutting-edge technology, we capture precise measurements and assess the condition of your property’s pipes. From there, we craft a streamlined plan to address and repair any damaged sections.
What To Look For
Material Compatibility The lining material must be compatible with the type of pipes you have (e.g., cast iron, PVC, clay, concrete). Compatibility is extremely important for long-term effectiveness.
In this industry, ASTM F1216-22 inversion method with robotic reinstatements and ASTM F1743-22 pulled-in-place method with robotic reinstatements are approved pipelining methods. Two unapproved methods are gapping and coating. These methods do not have any approved codes or standards.
The company you choose must comply with international and local regulations, installation methods, and codes. Request that the installation company you are considering provide you with their manufacturer installation guidelines.
Gapping Vs Lining
Continuous trenchless pipe lining that our team utilizes adheres to manufacturer installation guidelines and international and local codes, providing a continuous liner that will not lift , separate or damage your pipes and building. Gapping method does not meet manufacturer installation guidelines, international or local codes and voids the manufacturer’s warranty.
Coating Vs Lining
Coating a pipe with epoxy resin is not a structural solution and is not an approved method for pipe lining repairs. This method is not covered under international or local codes and does not have an approved manufacturers installation guideline.
Choose Your Solution Well
It’s crucial to look for solutions that are efficient, minimally invasive, and implemented with minimal disruption to your operations. Trenchless pipe lining (that our team utilizes) causes minimal interruption and we do not need to dig trenches through your property in order to remove and replace the existing broken sewer pipes.

Compliance with Standards
Ensure that the solution you choose complies with industry standards and regulations. This includes standards set by organizations such as ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) ASTM F1216-22, ASTM F1743-22, and other local regulatory bodies.
References and Case Studies
If your pipe lining solution provider doesn’t have references or case studies listed on their website, request them. Real-world examples of successful installations can give you confidence in the effectiveness of the solution.
Installer Experience and Training
Ensure that the installation is carried out by experienced and properly trained professionals who have an updated annual Qualified Installers Manufacturer Certification ( the Manufacturers approve the annual re-issuance of certificates). The expertise of the installation team is crucial for the success of the pipe lining project.
License and Insured
Ensure the installation company you are considering is a licensed plumbing contractor within the State of Florida by checking the DBPR (Department of Business and Professional Regulation) and that their license number is attached to the name they advertise with. Request their certificate of insurance and proof of workers’ compensation.
