Pipelining vs. Replacement Options

When your pipes start to deteriorate or become clogged in an industrial setting, you have several options for the repair or replacement of your pipes. This can be very disruptive and costly for your business. Traditionally, a trench will be excavated parallel to the damaged pipe for access.

Due to the amount of labor involved in excavation, the expense for traditional pipe replacement can quickly become very costly.

Another viable option in industrial settings that has been growing in popularity for over a decade is pipelining. Pipelining is also known as cured in place pipe, or CIPP. CIPP is a type of trenchless pipe repair, a process that involves minimal, if any, excavation. CIPP is also far less expensive than traditional pipe replacement methods and can be much more beneficial for a variety of reasons.

What is CIPP?

While CIPP is extremely technical in nature, it’s not terribly difficult to understand. CIPP initially involves a sewer camera inspection. A drain camera operator will open a drain line to inspect the damage using a robotic mobile camera. If any blockages are discovered such as tree roots, dirt, or broken pipe, those items are cleaned out and removed so there won’t be any interference with the CIPP. After the cleanout process is completed, a tube or felt liner, consisting of polyester or another material that readily absorbs resin has coats of resin applied and rolled onto the liner ensure it adheres.

Once the resin adheres to the tube or sleeve, it’s then inserted into a damaged sewer line by pulling it through. Once inside, it is “blown up” using an inversion process that involves air pressure, in turn, the epoxy resin then bonds with the broken pipe, or also known as the host pipe. The pipe lining is cured or hardened into place, allowing water to flow smoothly to the main sewer line.

One of the best reasons to use pipelining in industrial settings is the fact that there little to no excavation required because the liner is inserted from a currently existing access point. The fact that there no excavation, or trench needed, is where trenchless sewer repair or replacement originated. There is absolutely no need to dig up your grounds, parking lot, foundation, or sidewalks.

On average, the expense is generally half of what a traditional pipe replacement would cost, and disruption is so minimal it keeps is your business and production at the highest capacity possible. That’s why it’s the option most industries lean toward.

Top Reasons to Choose CIPP Trenchless Pipe Lining


1. Lower Installation Costs

Opting for the traditional trench replacement might sound like the affordable choice for pipe replacement, but the costs vary according to certain factors. Those same factors are what make pipe lining the most affordable option. CIPP is a much faster process, which greatly reduces the cost of labor and equipment. This is due to the fact that there is no excavation.

2. Works for Many Types of Pipe Damage

CIPP pipelining has very big advantages such that it works with any size of pipe. Pipe size should not be of any worry. In almost any situation, a CIPP repair will work. Pipe damage due to corrosion, age, root intrusion or rust can be fixed with the liner. Metal pipes with corrosion can be lined as well as cracked plastic pipes. You can have a brand-new pipe by just placing the liner in place and the damage disappears. If a pipe has completely collapsed and the liner does not have anything to bond to is the only time trenchless technology cannot be used.

3. Long-lasting Solutions

There is a good chance you already have some type of damage to your sewer system, if your business is located in an older building. The older the building, the more likely you are to need some type of sewer repair since every type of plumbing material has an "end date".
