Trenchless, Cured-in-Place Pipe Lining
Cured-in-Place-Pipe lining replaces pipes without the need to dig up walls, floors, driveways or landscaping. The CIPP process inserts a pipe within the old pipe, typically from a rooftop or from outside of the building, where the sewer service lateral comes out from under the building on the way to the sewer main line.
Sewer Mains Can Also Be Relined, In Their Entirety, Or In Smaller Sections.
The pipe lining technician will install the cured-in-place (CIPP) typically from one access point, and then it quickly hardens to provide you with a new pipe!
There are many types of pipe lining materials and processes. Some are structural, providing you with a thick and strong inserted pipe that replaces the damaged pipe. In addition, there are epoxy pipe coatings that harden to create a seal within the damaged pipe.
Different materials and epoxies are used for different reasons such as, the pH and temperature of the material moving in the pipe, or the type of damage to the pipe.
With innovative video technology, we’re able to locate the source and issue with your pipe or pipes, and determine which process and materials should be used to solve the problem.
Some Reasons Why Trenchless Often Makes More Sense
Can Be Up To 50% Cheaper
Save on traffic control, spoils storage, equipment access, utility support, site restoration and more.
The traditional method of open cut replacement creates lengthy trenches that run through local properties, over agricultural land, and disrupt local highways. Trenchless technology solves the problem of landscape destruction. Sewer line repair and the installation of new pipes is completed with minimal disruption.
Without the need for excavation, time is saved on the digging and refilling of trenches. The traditional process takes more time for site restoration, spoils storage, and traffic control.
Save Time And money Related To Survey And Design
Specifications vary for open cut methods of pipe installation. Detailed surveys of the ground need to be taken including the depth of the cut, the ground conditions, where the trenches will run, and also how much dewatering will need to take place to ensure that conditions are safe to work.
Encountering Fewer Unknowns In The Ground
A substantial percentage of the cost of open excavation comes down to excavating and replacing the ground during the process. With this, there are constant unknowns while digging up large amounts of ground that were previously untouched for a long period of time. By using Trenchless technology, less ground is disturbed and the chance of coming across an unknown variable is reduced.
Minimize Chance Of Disturbing Existing Utilities
Along with the issue of disrupting above surface activities, there is also the issue of disrupting existing underground utilities when digging trenches. With Trenchless technology we can install new pipelines and rehabilitate existing pipelines with limited to no disruption. That means traffic and business activities can carry on with their daily routine. It also reduces damage to existing paved surfaces, resulting in little to no disruption of daily life occurrences, such as people working and shopping.
Fewer Inconveniences To The Public Such As Noise And Air Pollution
Social costs are indirectly affected by open cut projects. These costs, usually under accounted for, play a big part in local communities. Trenchless technology keeps urban projects quiet and clean by reducing the amount of road closures and noise pollution. Air pollution that is produced in large amounts due to the use of digging and excavating machines is also reduced. Trenchless technology is a smart choice for urban communities.
