Pipe repair can prove terribly destructive. It may cause the whole drain line repair necessity. When most people think about the concept of pipe repair, they envision tearing up the landscape to get to the water pipes, heavy equipment, labor costs, and a damaged bank account.

An Explanation of the Pipe Lining Process
The relining process has two different piping install solutions, one of which is the Pull-in-Pipe (P.I.P) method, which is, in turn, much like the inversion process. Essentially, Pull-in-Pipe solutions and the inversion process have similar steps involved in the process of completion.
Property owners, as well as managers, know all too well the havoc and problems that rainwater leader pipe work and sewer drainage pipes can cause. Both rainwater leaders and sewers develop troublesome leaks that can cause a backup. The presence of a backup is because of one or more causes including
- pipe work age
- intrusive tree roots
- movement of the ground.
Property owners are dealing with costly damages, in fact, the costs can reach millions each year, all because of crumbling and decaying municipalities’ infrastructures underground.
The damage leaking sewage creates is not limited to outdoors and the destruction of property, but it brings health risks with it as well. It can end up contaminating any area it encounters, particularly with harmful bacteria and molds. When a sewer backs up it can force contaminated wastes into the nearby beaches, waterways, and streets.
The specific technology is Cured-in-Place Pipe or CIPP for short. The latter technology allows a professional to form a pipe inside an existing, damaged pipe.
The CIPP has a unique epoxy resin that helps in creating new pipes and there is no need to damage landscaping, streets, sidewalks, interior walls, floors, or building structures to install this highly innovative technology. The CIPP process of installation has proven successful for two and a half decades now. The two methods of installation are the Pull in Place, or PIP for short, and the inversion method.
P.I.P – The Pull-In-Place Method
The pull in place method of pipe repair is the following:
- Two holes or access points need to be created, one at each end of the pipe.The access points will allow a professional to feed the cure in pipe through the existing pipe underground without any further damage to the landscaping on the surface. One hole allows the line to be feed and the other allows it to be pulled into position. At times, however, only one access is created – this requires the inversion process of installation.
- An epoxy-saturated liner is pulled into the correct position inside the existing pipe. The pipe is cured in place and the new pipe is flawless, allowing for the flow of water and waste once more.
Professionals for have used the pull in place process successfully so long now, no doubt, millions of linear feet in new, sturdy drain lines have been installed without an issue. Please note that every repair situation is unique and every project and building requires a full assessment to determine the best pipe repair solution. A professional installer can discuss the trenchless technology solutions available to you and provide you with the technical expertise to address your needs, no matter how corrosive the environment or how damaged the pipe work.
