What is Trenchless Pipe Repair
Over the past few years trenchless pipe-lining has become a preferred method used to rehabilitate damaged pipelines. This trenchless technology is not only one of the most efficient methods but it is also versatile and can be used for various types of pipeline systems. Some of those pipeline systems include cast iron pipes, abs, PVC, HDPE, clay, Orangeburg, metal and/or concrete pipes.

Trenchless pipe repair is also known as cured in place pipe lining. It uses a zero dig technology to rehabilitate sewer pipes without digging up the area.
What are the benefits of trenchless pipe repair?
Zero Dig Technology
Trenchless pipe repair can also be very beneficial. To begin with, as previously stated it uses a zero dig technology to repair the damaged pipes. This means that disruption to the surrounding area will be minimal and routines will not be interrupted.
Trenchless pipe repair is also more cost effective. Since, it doesn't require digging, this means that workers do not have to dig up the area around your home, business, or property. The cost of this can range anywhere from a couple thousand dollars to over $10,000.
New Pipe will last longer
The trenchless pipe liner is made of tubular layers. It is a 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 a 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. These liners can then last anywhere from 50- 100 years.
How is trenchless pipe repair done?
1. Use Video Pipe inspection to determine what the root issue is.
2. Clear out the pipeline to ensure that nothing can hinder the CIPP process.
3. Measure pipe to see how much material is needed
4. Prepare for pipe lining by mixing the resin
5. The process now begins of inserting the liner. We pull a new CIPP liner in place and saturate it with an epoxy cure, and allow the liner to inflate.
6. Curing begins and the new CIPP is more durable than the original.
Once the new trenchless pipe is settled, our team will inspect the inside of the pipe with our video camera. This step ensures the repair meets our high standards and requirements of CIPP.
