Curious about cured-in-place pipe? This overview will explain what it is, the advantages of using it, and how it can benefit your municipality.

 

What is Cured-in-Place Pipe?

Cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) is a trenchless technology used to repair and rehabilitate damaged or deteriorated pipes without the need for excavation.

It involves the insertion of a flexible tube coated with resin into the existing pipe. The resin is then cured using heat or UV light, creating a new, seamless pipe within the old one.

 

When to Use Cured-in-Place Pipe?

CIPP is often used to repair pipes that have been damaged by corrosion, cracks, or other types of wear and tear. It can be used on a wide range of pipes, including those made of concrete, clay, and PVC, and is suitable for both small and large diameter pipes.
 
 

Why Should You Use Cured-in-Place Pipe

CIPP is a cost-effective and efficient method of repairing pipes, as it allows for the repair of pipes without disturbing the surrounding soil or landscape.

It is also a faster process than traditional excavation and pipe replacement methods, as it does not require the removal and replacement of the old pipe.

 

Advantages of Cured-in-Place Pipe

One of the main advantages of CIPP is that it can be used to repair pipes that are located in hard-to-reach or inaccessible areas. Traditional excavation methods often require the excavation of large trenches, which can be difficult or impossible in certain situations.

CIPP, on the other hand, allows for the repair of pipes without the need for excavation, making it an ideal solution for pipes located under roads, buildings, or other structures.

CIPP is also a durable and long-lasting solution for pipe repair. The resin used in CIPP is resistant to corrosion and other types of wear and tear, which means that the repaired pipe should last for many years. In addition, CIPP is a flexible solution that can accommodate changes in the shape or size of the pipe over time.

 

CIPP is a Great, Cost-Efficient Solution

Overall, CIPP is a versatile and effective method of repairing pipes without the need for excavation. It is a cost-effective and efficient solution that is suitable for a wide range of pipes and applications.
