CIPP sewer relining is a pipe repair technique that was patented in the 1970s, and is still one of the most commonly used techniques for pipe repair and rehabilitation. What is CIPP and why is it still one of the most popular repair techniques almost 40 years after its creation? What is CIPP? CIPP is an acronym, which stands for cured-in-place-pipe. It is a ‘trenchless’ pipe repair method, meaning that repairs to a damaged pipe can be affected without having to dig up the pipe or expose it to air. It is accomplished by inserting a felt tube that has been saturated with resin into the damaged pipe. Once the tube is in place, it can be ‘inverted’ or expanded to fit the interior of the pipe by filling it with either air or water. After inversion, the new pipe skin is cured with hot water, steam, or UV light, creating a new hardened pipe within the damaged original. Because of its great versatility, it has been used on sewer, water, gas, and chemical pipelines since its invention. Why is CIPP useful for sewer relining? Unless your home is very new, chances are the sewer line that connects your home to your septic tank or local sewage system is made of cast iron, clay, plastic, or some strange combination of the three. Cast iron pipes are susceptible to rust and corrosion, due to the nature of the material, and clay pipes are often cracked or broken by tree roots or underground rodents searching for water. In most traditional sewer pipe repair we would need to dig up a section of your yard, usually between your home and the street, and manually replace each section of pipe. This is costly, and leaves your yard looking terrible. By using CIPP sewer relining techniques, the same repairs can be completed without tearing your yard to bits. Conclusions CIPP sewer relining is one of the most cost effective ways to repair a damaged sewer line. You could pay for someone to dig up your yard, potentially doing costly damage to steps, decks, or other home additions, or you could have us utilize CIPP sewer relining and get the same fantastic repair work completed for a fraction of the price.
