What is pipe lining?
Pipe lining is a minimally invasive process which allows the rehabilitation of existing drainage pipe without having to tear it out and replace it conventionally. In short, pipe lining is accomplished by inserting an epoxy saturated felt tube into the pipe, inflating it and letting it cure in place. After the liner has cured, the result is a brand-new pipe within the old pipe. This new inner-pipe has a 50 year life use expectancy- that’s almost double of the pipes that are around these days!
The steps are simple:
An initial inspection of the pipe is performed by means of a high definition, full-color, and self-leveling sewer camera. This is the highest of technology in the pipe biz and it helps the professionals be even more accurate when it comes to sewer systems. During this process we will measure the linear footage and diameter of your pipes as well as locate and document any problems.
The pipes are thoroughly cleaned utilizing hydro-jetting or mechanical methods. This process removes tree roots, blockages and scale buildup in preparation for lining. On occasion, sewer cleaning may be all that is required to remedy pipe problems such as slow drains.
After the pipe is cleaned and excess debris is removed, the pipe can now be lined. The felt liner is measured and cut to the dimensions of the pipe such as length and diameter. The liner is saturated with a two-part epoxy and inserted into the pipe either by the Inversion Method or the Pull-In Place Method. After the epoxy has cured, the bladder is removed and a brand new pipe is left in place inside the existing one.
The benefits of trenchless pipe lining are endless and include but are certainly not limited to:
- No digging or destruction
