The Process and Benefits of Trenchless Pipe Lining

trenchless pipe lining
Posted on: 12 Dec 2013

Out with the old and in with the new; trenchless pipe lining offers dig free options for sewer pipe repair. In the last few years, innovation in pipeline work has allowed contractors to inspect, repair, and clear pipelines without disturbing ground. This saves the homeowner or business owner a lot of cash since repairs can be preformed without ripping up concrete walkways, driveways, or foundations.

The Process Of Trenchless Pipe Relining

New technology has allowed the contractor to rehabilitate pipe made of cast iron, clay, PVC, HDPE, ABS, and concrete using cured-in-place piping methods. Once the pipe is thoroughly inspected using CCTV technology, it is cleaned and the surfaces are prepped for epoxy. The damaged pipe areas are then measured and the product needed is cut to length. The pipe liner is then coated with a heavy duty resin epoxy. The new pipe is then inserted into the damaged pipe using an air pressure inversion device. The pipe liner and epoxy are given a few hours to set and dry. Once the pipe is secure, it is again ready for service.

The key advantages to using this method of repair include but are not limited to:

  • No dig repair so less ground around your home or business is disturbed.
  • The new lining seals any abnormalities within the pipe that may have gone unnoticed such as small cracks or holes.
  • The trenchless repair system takes less time and in turn is more affordable than the traditional dig and replace method.
  • The process smooths out offsets at pipe connections for better flow.

Replace Pipe

chilled water system repair virginiaWhen it comes to replacing pipe, no dig trenchless technology offers many cost saving and time saving advantages. When compared to traditional dig and replace jobs CIPP pipelining can be a viable alternative.

Depending on the surrounding areas, depth, traffic and value of the surrounding landscape and infrastructure, there are advantages to both.

If the pipe lays in a shallow area mostly covered by dirt in an out of sight area, digging up and replacing the pipe will most likely be the best option.

We can provide references to many plumbing contractors in the area if this method is advantageous.

Using CIPP to Replace a Pipe

  • CIPP offers the ability to minimize down time.

If your pipe is located in a high traffic area this may be a major concern for either your business or residents.

CIPP can replace a pipe within a matter of hours.

  • CIPP will increase flow.

Since there are no joints and no areas of weakness, infiltration and exfiltration along with concerns of joints causing backups is completely eliminated.

Electrical wires have nothing to get hung up on and waste will continue to flow smoothly.

CIPP Can Save You Money

All in all CIPP can save you money since there is usually only a three to four man crew required.

There are many less safety hazards involved.

Equipment and materials are all contained inside of trailers and no heavy equipment is necessary.

Sewer Lining Can Save Time, Money And Effort

Ask any commercial property owner who has ever had to have his or her sewer pipes replaced and you are likely to get a horror story. That is because if older properties need their sewer pipes completely replaced, it can be a long, expensive and messy process.

Luckily, some companies have recognized that a great many owners of businesses and commercial properties are not ready to deal with the cost and hassle of such drastic repairs and have begun working with products like sewer lining.

To put it in layman’s terms, sewer lining is performed by blowing or pulling a flexible resin sheath into a broken or damaged pipe. Once in place, the resin sheath hardens, or “cures.” For this reason, sewer lining is sometimes called “cured-in-place pipe.”

Sewer lining is not the right remedy for every situation in which a sewer pipe is broken or damaged, but in the circumstances when it a realistic options, it is often significantly less expensive than the traditional dig-and-replace sewer pipe method. As you can imagine, it also creates far less mess and hassle because yards do not have to be dug up and landscaping does not have to be moved.

At Dynamic Drain Technologies, we are able to offer sewer lining repair services to many Virginia and Maryland property owners. If you are interest in learning more about whether you are a good candidate for this approach, please do not hesitate to contact us at your earliest convenience.
