Home / Types of Trenchless Pipe Rehabilitation and How They Are Done

Trenchless pipe rehabilitation in Atlanta, GA offered by Federal EC has made repairing sewer pipes faster, easier, and more efficient. With trenchless solutions, inconveniences like rubble piling up on roads, sidewalks, and driveways are now a thing of the past. Moreover, trenchless processes do not require digging holes through the ground to access the damaged pipes. 

The best part? There are actually many methods to the trenchless pipe lining process. Here are your options.

Cured-in-Place Pipe

Cured-in-Place Pipe, also known as CIPP pipe lining involves placing a flexible felt liner within a damaged pipe. The liner, made up of fiber-reinforced fabric, is inflated with resin or epoxy and then inverted into the old pipes. Heat is then applied to “cure” liner and make it adhere to the structure of the host pipe, leaving a seamless, more durable pipe-within-a-pipe.

Pipe Bursting

Pipe bursting is a trenchless pipe rehabilitation method that can be done without removing the old pipes. It involves using a bursting head, which is pushed through the damaged pipes, busting the pipes, and pushing the broken particles into the surrounding soil as it creates space for a new pipe that is installed, making it ideal for infrastructure projects such as storm drain rehabilitation.

Grout-in-Place Pipe

Grout-in-Place Pipe is a trenchless pipe lining method that uses high-density polyethylene liner (HDPE). The HDPE fabric is inserted and grouted at damaged places of the pipes, hence the name.

Mechanical Spot Repair

Instead of replacing the entire pipe, mechanical spot repair rectifies pipes that have collapsed, or portions that have breaks, cracks, fractures, or any other type of damage.

Trenchless methods are especially useful for underground utility construction purposes, making them the preferred method of pipe rehabilitation by commercial property owners and facility managers everywhere.
