Of all the methods of trenchless sewer repair, cured-in-place pipe lining (or CIPP) is probably one of the most convenient, and certainly one of the most impressive. With this technology, our Tacoma sewer repair team is able to repair a sewer line in a fraction of the time it would take to dig it up and replace it.
With all this being said, how can you be sure that sewer pipe lining is the right thing to resolve your plumbing damages? What makes CIPP better than other more traditional methods of repair?
Choosing CIPP for Sewer Repair
For many damages and plumbing emergencies that could possibly happen to your pipes, CIPP is the best possible solution. By utilizing trenchless technology, you will be able to save hundreds (if not more) on your sewer repair projects. You will also be able to get your pipes repaired in a matter of hours, as opposed to days such as with more traditional methods of sewer repair.
- Cured-In-Place Pipe Lining Is The Most Efficient Method of Sewer Line Repair
The reason CIPP stands apart from and holds more value than other traditional methods of pipe repair is primarily due to the speed and ease of the process. During the pipe lining process, an access hole is dug at each end of the section of pipe. A felt liner saturated with epoxy is then sent through via a high-pressure air jet.
Once the walls of the old pipe are successfully lined, an air bladder (similar to a balloon) is used to hold the newly formed pipe in place as it cures. The lining, and curing of the pipe can usually be completed in a matter of hours as opposed to the days it would take with more traditional methods of pipe repair.
- CIPP Offers Versatile Repairs for Almost Any Situation
CIPP lining takes pipe repair beyond traditional methods in the way that it can be applied to almost any type of pipe damage. The ways, and situations in which CIPP can be applied include but are not limited to:
- Cracking, fracturing, or corrosion of pipes
- Breaking due to environmental stresses (soil shifts, temperature changes)
- Poorly installed lateral pipe joints
- Root, or animal intrusion
- Missing sections of pipe
- You Save More Money With Minimal Digging
With traditional methods of pipe repair, digging is always required. This means you are paying for time, and backbreaking work that CIPP lining does not require. Long hours, along with tearing up your yard (resulting in landscaping repairs) can result in a large unforeseen dent in your plumbing budget.
With cure in place pipe, digging is kept to an absolute minimum. CIPP is done through very small controlled entry points that are extremely easy to fill once the job is complete. Not only do these types of jobs limit your landscaping repairs, but they also save you time and money when it comes to labor and digging costs.
All in all, CIPP lining is a good option for most situations.
