Common Questions About CIPP Pipe Lining

Home / Common Questions About CIPP Pipe Lining

Until recently, sewer line repair and replacement projects have been expensive and laborious. Fortunately, Federal EC offers pipe rehabilitation in Atlanta, GA, a more efficient repair method that doesn’t require excavation. Since most people aren’t familiar with this process, we often get asked countless questions about this method. 

Here’s what you need to know about CIPP pipe lining.

Question 1: What is Pipe Lining?

Trenchless pipe lining is a less invasive pipe repair method. While a traditional repair approach would require heavy-duty equipment and extensive excavation, trenchless pipe lining only requires digging up access points through which our technicians can perform the repairs entirely underground.

Question 2: How Does the Process Take Place?

The CIPP pipe lining process begins with a camera inspection that detects corrosion, breaks, and invading tree roots. A follow-up cleaning removes any instructions to the pipe. The pipe lining crew then inserts a flexible, resin-soaked liner inside the damaged pipe. This liner then cures and hardens to form a new, more resilient internal pipeline that seals all cracks and counteracts invading tree roots.

Question 3: What Types and Sizes of Pipes Do You Line?

Our technicians can treat lines of 2″ – 12″ in diameter with a length of 200″ or more, including horizontal sewer lines, roof drain systems, vertical sanitary stacks, and more. This also means that we can work on projects such as storm drain rehabilitation.

Question 4: How Much Does Pipe Lining Cost?

Although CIPP pipe lining can cost nearly a third more than traditional excavation, it saves you money in the long run. Tearing a yard comes with secondary consequences, including the cost, labor, and resources needed for yard rehabilitation and transportation of old pipes, but you don’t have to worry about that with CIPP. Moreover, re-lined pipes can last up to 50 years, saving you money in later repairs.
