CIPP lining, or cured in place pipe lining, is a method of pipe restoration used in existing pipe repair. This process is done to preserve current pipes that have been damaged by leaks, cracks, intruding roots, and rust. It increases the lifespan of a pipe system while also possibly preserving building structures and causing little to no damage to property.
Commercial Cured In Place Pipe Repair - CIPP
Commercial and Industrial Cured in place pipe lining repair services. The trenchless pipe lining or sewer pipe lining is a preferred method used to rehabilitate damaged pipelines. The CIPP trenchless pipe liner technology is versatile and can be used for various pipeline systems, including cast iron pipes, abs, PVC, HDPE, clay, Orangeburg, metal and/or concrete pipes. Cloud 9 Services, Inc. is a leader in the Orlando, Florida area providing its customers with cured in place pipe repair “CIPP”.
The cured in place pipe liners are made of tubular layers. They are non-woven felt with an exterior polyurethane coat. A CIPP wet out is when the resign mixture is saturated into the felt. The felt then acts as resin carrier adding flexibility to the liner.
Once the wet out is completed, the CIPP is moved to the installation site. When the cured in place pipe liner has arrived, it is positioned into the host pipe. Then, the cured in place pipe liner is fully inflated by water or air pressure. Once completed, the tube cures in place.
Perhaps the strongest aspect that Cloud 9 Services, Inc. brings to its customers is the diversity in pipeline rehabilitation. While Cloud 9 Services, Inc. does focus on cured in place pipe-line repairs, we are committed to a full system renewal. Cloud 9 Services, Inc has the capabilities for cleaning the pipeline, video inspections, slip-lining, lateral rehabilitation, hydro excavation, and more!

Cured In Place Pipe Lining Process
For more than 10 years, Cloud 9 Services has been a leading company and expert underground utility contractors. Our team specializes in utility construction, repairs, and maintenance. Over the years, we have developed and expanded our services. One of those services is cured in place pipe repair also known as CIPP or trenchless pipe lining and repair.
CIPP is the latest and most popular technology used to repair pipes. This process is used to fix deteriorated pipes using minimal disorder to the environment.
Commercial Cured in place pipe lining is one of the most efficient ways to get the job done. The CIPP restoration process involves a trenchless technology. Cured in place pipe lining does not need excavation in order to rehabilitate a damage or broken pipeline. Many times the liner can be inserted through an existing access point or manhole.
Recently, Cloud 9 Services teamed up with Picote Solutions and Perma Liner for a cured in place pipe repair at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, also known as NASA.
Our work with NASA consisted of lining a 40 year old pipe that was 8” x 150.
What does the process of CIPP look like?
When our team is on site of a CIPP we inspect the pipe using our video pipe inspection technology. Once we determine the location of the damage, the liner is inverted using water or air pressure.
Next, an epoxy resin felt tube is placed into the damaged pipe from an access point, whether through a manhole or excavation. The liner is then pressurized and shot into the pipe system. Then, we inspect the pipe system once again to make sure the liner is placed properly. We then place pressure for the resin to harden and form a tight fitting and jointless new pipe.The Picote Coating System is quite simple. It is attached to a coating pipe and the solid epoxy resin cartridges begin to pump. This forms what we call a “pipe inside of a pipe”. The new pipe is much stronger and durable.
How powerful is the coating?
The coating placed inside the pipe system provides a damp-proof, corrosion resistant, wear-resistant and non-corrosive lining. Several coats can be applied to the same pipe. This ensures that the system is fully protected and strengthened. The powerful coating enhances the longevity of the pipe. On average, a cured in place pipe is made to last up to 100 years.
Cast Iron PipeLiner
Cast Iron Pipes that are exposed to waste water will deteriorate over time.
Trenchless pipe repair addresses the problem by inserting a strong epoxy cure into the pipe so that it sticks to the inner walls. This will create a hardened liner, serving as a pipe inside the old cast iron pipe, rehabilitating the old system to save on replacement costs.
Sleeves For A Sewer Pipe
Trenchless sewage system repair work is an approach of repairing sewer pipes that returns the interior framework of an existing pipeline without untidy and disruptive digging. The entry opening of a pipe is the center of all inner repair work. A video pipe inspection of the pipe system is done to identify the actual damages. An epoxy saturated felt sleeve is put into the damaged pipeline. The sleeve is inflated and develops the new piping.
To draw the liner with the wanted place, two access factors are needed: one to feed the lining as well as one to pull it through. Air is presented into the pipe to open the sleeve and also hold it versus the internal walls of the pipeline until it dries in position. After the pipe is cured, a follow-up video assessment is done to confirm the pipe is fixed properly.
Cured in Place Pipe-lining Installation
We use a 3 step process at Cloud 9 Services, Inc
First- We inspect the pipe-lines with a self- working, HD sewer video camera. This allows us to not only measure the pipe but also see the extent of the damage. After the inspection is completed, we create an action plan to repair all pipe problems
Second- Once we properly assess the damage and propose a solution we thoroughly clean the lines using our high-pressure water jetter and special tools to remove FOG (fat, oil, grease); dirt & mud; tree roots; debris; etc.
Third- After the pipe is cleaned we line the pipe. We pull a new CIPP liner in place and saturate it with an epoxy cure. The liner will then inflate causing the pipe to cure in place. The end result is the creation of a strong, smooth and seamless ‘pipe within a pipe.
Benefits of Cured in Place Pipe-lining
The repaired pipe is better and stronger:
Roots cannot penetrate the new “jointless” pipe and calcification won't stick to the inner walls of the epoxy barrier-lined pipe.
