Types of Cured In Place Pipe Lining and Epoxy Pipe Restoration Methods That We Utilize In New York

All throughout New York State there are literally hundreds of thousands of miles of various kinds of pipes ranging from ½” to 60″ in internal diameter that have overtime deteriorated and need replacement. These pipes may be rusted cast iron drains underneath homes or buildings, or they may be clay sewer pipes that have cracked, or concrete culverts that have deteriorated due to hydrogen sulfide corrosion, or corrugated metal culvert drains that have rusted allowing sand  infiltration which creates sinkholes in the surfaces above them. In addition, small diameter potable water pipes and large diameter water mains suffer from corrosion like any other pipes and have to be replaced after a number of years.

In all these cases to replace the pipes, excavation of concrete slabs, road surfaces, walls of high-rise buildings, factory floors, railway train tracks etc. has to occur at great expense to society and property owners. Factories have to stop production, homeowners have to move out of their homes for a few weeks, high rise building tenants have to go stay in hotels, and restaurants and shops have to quit selling their products and services. Once excavation has replaced the pipes, the decorative surfaces have to be restored which includes new tile, wood, asphalt, marble or landscaping. Also, furniture and equipment has to be taken out of storage and moved back into the property.

So it is no surprise that about 40 years ago alternatives to pipe excavation and replacement were developed, originally in Europe and Japan where the structures were older and the excavation of historic cobblestone streets for example was not an option. At first large diameter pipes were rehabilitated. The technology was easier to develop and install for larger pipes believe it or not. The small diameter pipes from 4” down to 2.5” were more complicated to rehabilitate and so be patented processes only became available about 15 years ago. Despite the fact that small diameter pipe lining has been around for more than a decade, most people don’t know that it exists.

Today various types of pipe rehabilitation are available under various names such as “cured in place pipe lining” or “CIPP”, “epoxy pipe lining”, “trenchless pipe lining” or simply “pipe lining”. They do vary somewhat in materials and installation and so it is best you call us for a free site visit to determine the most appropriate technology for your situation.

Benefits Of Pipe Lining

Benefits of pipe lining vary depending on the type of pipe lining being used. The material can be structurally so strong that it is designed to be a stand-alone, load-bearing pipe that can be underneath roads or railways or building footers and can support the weight above it even if the old host pipe has completely disintegrated. All types of pipe lining are designed to prevent excavation so they are much expedient than the old methods of pipe excavation and replacement, much more cost effective, and tenants and homeowners and property owners can stay during the installation instead of having to go live in a hotel and move all their furniture and pets into storage. In addition, depending upon the type of pipe relining, any pipe can be rehabilitated whether it is gravity fed, pressurized or even a vacuum type pipe.
