What is trenchless pipe repair?

Trenchless pipe repair is a method of repairing sewer or storm pipes without destructively digging and removing large portions of flooring, foundation, and walls to expose the building's pipe system. Trenchless pipe repair restores an already existing failed or deteriorated  pipe by utilizing the existing structure as a base. Rather than by disruptive, costly, trench digging, followed by conventional pipe repair and subsequent restoration of impacted surfaces (floors, walls, foundation, cabinetry, etc.).

The term "trenchless" by definition simply means "without trenches." Traditional pipe repair involves digging a long, deep path directly though the foundation your building stands on, in order to get to the pipeline underneath. Though this practice was widely used throughout the 20th century and into the present, it can jeopardize the integrity of your building's slab. It also creates the need for extensive and costly landscape and foundation repairs once the project is complete. Thanks to trenchless technology however, this is no longer a necessary risk or added expense. Trenchless pipe repair utilizes the existing pipe structure and reinforces the inside of it, this maintains the existing structure while also fixing the damage the pipe system has throughout. This means no digging and quicker repair times. Though upfront costs may seem to make trenchless pipe repair look more expensive, in the long run this method saves you money. 

Trenchless Pipe Relining Methods

  • Cured in place pipe lining (CIPP) : 

    • Cured in place pipe lining, also known as CIPP lining, is a method of trenchless pipe restoration used in existing pipe repair. This process is done to preserve the current pipes that have been damaged by leaks, cracks, intruding roots, and rust. It increases the lifespan of a pipe system for up to 100 years while also possibly preserving the building structures and causing little to no damage to property.

  • QuickLock Point Repair - 

    • The QuickLock point pipe repair system is constructed of a 316L stainless steel sleeve structural body, covered by a seamless EPDM compression seal. QuickLock sleeves can be installed with flow present due to the fact that the packer is hollow, allowing for the flow pass through. The QuickLock point pipe repair can be easily be installed with no cure time, because no resin is involved. ​Through the manhole, the sleeve is inserted into the pipe and delivered to the damaged section. The sleeve is mechanically compressed against the inner pipe wall. Using an inflatable packer, the sleeve is then expanded and permanently locked into position.

  • Sliplining : ​

    • Sliplining is one of the oldest methods of trenchless pipe rehabilitation of existing pipelines. It is used to repair leaks or restore structural stability to an existing pipeline. It is completed by installing a smaller, "carrier pipe" into a larger "host pipe", grouting the annular space​ between the two pipes, and sealing the ends. The most common material used to slipline an existing pipe is high-density polyethylene (HDPE), but fiberglass-reinforced pipe (FRP) and PVC are also common.

  • Internal Pipe Coating :​

    • Professional installers use internal pipe coating to repair an existing sewer pipe that has started to leak into surrounding soil. To prepare the area for treatment, they will completely drain the pipes to get rid of any water. A thick epoxy coating is sprayed on the inside of your pipes to permanently seal the leaks and cracks throughout the pipeline.​

Sliplining vs CIPP :

At the core sliplining and CIPP lining are a very similar process. They both install a new pipe inside your old one and give you a functional new pipe without having to dig up your old one. Considered trenchless pipe repair, CIPP or sliplining are great for your landscaping and finances. However, CIPP is the preferred method for several reasons

Sliplining is grouted :

Sliplining involves threading a smaller pipe through your existing one, or "host", pipe. The ends are then sealed with a grout so that there's only one solid line between the old pipe and new entrance. This seal is heavy and may pose difficulty if it breaks down.

CIPP lining, or cured in place pipe lining, enters the host pipe as a flexible felt liner soaked in a mixture of epoxy and resin. This allows it to conform to the shape of your host pipe. If your pipe has suffered some pressure and is no longer perfectly round, CIPP can adapt to the shape that it is. Once the liner is in place, hot air is forced through the length of the pipe. It easily hardens into a brand new pipe.


Differences :

  • Sliplining puts an entire already made pipe inside your other pipe. This pipe has less flexibility than a cure in place pipe. It's also more difficult to get a custom size of premade pipe than it is to make a custom size felt liner. If your pipes are of unusual size, it may be more difficult to slipline them than to have CIPP installed. 

  • CIPP doesn't rely on grout to form a seal around the pipe. CIPP doesn't have to be flush with the host pipe to be effective. This also allows smaller access ports for CIPP installations.

  • Sliplining pre-dates CIPP. Slip lining got started in the 1940s while CIPP didn't come along until 30 years later, beginning in the 1970s.

  • CIPP technology is more up to date. It uses technology that wasn't around when sliplining became popular.

  • One drawback of sliplining is that you will be losing a lot of the space in your pipe. Sliplining requires a lot of space to work. This drastically reduces the size of the pipe that you have to work with. Many industrial sites can't afford to lose the amount of space that slip lining gives up. CIPP, on the other hand, is much thinner. The resulting pipe is strong enough that you can get a large, strong pipe that's only 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. 

In the end CIPP and sliplining have the same goal of trenchless pipe repair. However, CIPP is a more modern, flexible process that requires less work. Moreover, it lets you keep your pipes closer to their original size.

Why Choose Trenchless Pipe Repair?

Trenchless pipe repair has a multitude of benefits alongside it being a no-dig method. Some of those benefits include: 

  • Greater Time Efficiency :

    • Expert professionals can carry out the trenchless pipe repair method in as little as a few hours and bring your pipes back to almost new condition. You get to save time and spend it on what matters most.​

  • Cheaper :​

    • Lining pipes save commercial and industrial properties up to 75% in costs as compared to replacing the old pipe with a new one. The cost of labor goes down as less hours are needed to compete the trenchless process​. In upfront cost comparisons the price of traditional repair is less than or equal to that of trenchless repair solutions. However, with traditional pipe repair solutions there are a number of additional costs, when compared to the trenchless repair solution, that can dramatically hike up the price and become a more timely and costly endeavor in the long run.

  • Versatile :​

    • You won't have to worry about your old sewer system being made of traditional materials such as concrete, cast iron, orangeburg, or clay. Trenchless CIPP technology​ works for all kinds of pipes and since the lining conforms to the shape of the host pipe, any shape (oval, rectangular, etc.) can be repaired and restored.

  • Zero-Digging :​

    • Trenchless pipe repair is the preferred method because it requires zero digging. Since the job is completed without having to excavate the property it will save the property owner time and money.​

  • Eco-Friendly :​

    • Cloud 9 Services, LLC is proud to use materials that are friendly to the environment to cause as minimal environmental damage as possible.​

  • Durable :​

    • The strong epoxy cure 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 the system is fully protected and strengthened. On average, this coating is made to last up to 100 years.

Can Trenchless Pipe Repair Always be Performed?

Trenchless pipe repair works on a case by case basis and the current state of your pipeline will determine if trenchless pipe repair is an option for you. For example, if the pipeline is collapsed or the damage is too extensive then trenchless pipe repair methods may not work. Also, while trenchless methods are usually more cost-effective that may not always be the case. In those scenarios utilizing traditional pipe repair methods might be the most cost-effective solution.
