What is CIPP (Cured In Place Piping)?
CIPP, also called Lateral Lining, is a method we use if the pipe is still in a circular shape but has problems such as root penetrations, separations, is missing pipe, has misaligned pipes, infiltration, or is just rough. We clean the pipe so it is free of debris, and then we measure the distance we would like to “line.” At this point we cut a fiberglass sleeve and “wet it down” with epoxy/resin. We then fold it up and slide it into the pipe.
When it is located in the right location we inflate the liner. This takes the shape of a new circular pipe and covers the problem area, and also seals it from having any other problems. After the liner has dried we remove the inflatable tube from inside the liner, trim the ends if needed, and you are back in service.
We can use this process to line something as small as 12 inches up to hundreds of feet at a time. We can use CIPP on pipe as small as 1.5″ up to 24″ pipe. We can go through 90 degree bends, 45 degree bends, tees and wye fittings, and cut in services after we are finished, making a seamless pipe from one end to the other.
