Aging lines, tree root intrusions, calcification, and ground movement can all cause sewers to leak and back up, leaving home and business owners with costly repairs. Not only are blocked sewer lines expensive, they also create health risks such as contamination from mold and harmful bacteria. Backups also cause sewers to overflow, spewing harmful waste into streets and waterways.
Pipe lining uses special epoxy to create a pipe within an existing pipe, providing the same structural strength as a new pipe. This technology avoids the damage to structures, floors, interior walls, sidewalks, streets and landscaping that many traditional methods cause. There are two primary types of applications, the ‘pull-in-place’ (PIP) method and the ’inversion’ method.
The ‘pull-in-place’ (PIP) method pulls the epoxy-saturated liner into position and cures it into place. In order to pull a liner in place, two access points are required; one that feeds the liner in and the other that pulls it into place. In some cases, there is only one available access point. In these instances, the inversion method must be used.
The ‘Inversion’ pipe lining method offers several advantages:
- Only one access point is required.
- Up to 200ft of liner can be installed in a matter of seconds
- Epoxy is laid against the pipe, adhering the liner to the pipe
Did You Know: Most large projects require a combination of the pull-in-place and inversion methods.
There are several benefits to pipe lining technology. It effectively:
- prevents root intrusion and stops leaks
- increases Flow
- prevents destruction of property
- has the same structural strength as new pipes
