Pipe LiningPipe Lining

Pipe Lining is a process used for repairing and replacing cracked, leaking, backed up, and damaged sewer lines. Using a “no-dig” trenchless process to avoid yard excavation, sidewalk destruction, or digging up trees, sewer lining involves inserting new epoxy-saturated pipe tubing into existing pipes, inflating the tubing, and curing it into place with hot air, steam or Bluelight LED technology. This results in a new seal lining the walls of existing pipes, replacing broken piping with the potential to last for decades.

How does sewer pipe lining work?

Most often targeting the replacement of clay piping, cast iron, concrete, plastic, and PVC pipes, the trenchless pipe lining process involves these steps:

  • Sewer Camera Inspection – To confirm the position of cracks and compromised pipes
  • Cleaning Existing Pipes – Removing debris and other blockages
  • Measurement of Existing Pipes
  • Preparation of Tube Replacement – The replacement pipe tubing will typically be a felt tube made of fiberglass, polyester, or similar materials
  • Epoxy Impregnation & Inversion of Tubing – The tube piping will be saturated or “impregnated” with an epoxy-resin and then flipped or “inverted” inside-out using an advanced inverter drum so that the epoxy-resin will be on the outside of the tubing, allowing it to be affixed to the walls of the existing pipes
  • Inserting Tubing Throughout the Compromised Pipes – The tubing will slide throughout the walls of the piping system until in place and ready for curing
  • Curing of Tubing – This is what creates the new seal. Using popular technologies — traditional hot air or steam curing (4-12 hours drying time) or Bluelight LED curing (up to 5 times faster), all moisture is drawn out and the pipes can solidify in place
  • Sewer Flow is Returned to New Pipes – Service to pipes can be restored once the curing process is complete.

    Does that work for pools?

    Can this be used for copper piping for a residential property, instead of a repipe ½ to ¾ copper pipe?

    The main drain pipe in my pool is leaking. Right now it’s plugged at the bottom of the pool so it’s fine at the moment but if the plug is removed I lose about 3″ of water every 24 hours. The main drain is about 20 feet from the pool pump. Can you line this pipe? It’s 1.5″ PVC pipe. Can you give me a ballpark estimate of what it would cost?

    What’s the smallest line this can be done to? I have a three quarter inch ac drain line that’s broken/closed .

    Newer PVC sewer pipe connects to cast iron pipe near house. That pipe is probably compromised, old and recently needed to be snaked. We will be installing new driveway soon, would it be better to dig it out and replace with PVC to street or would this lining process be sufficient to prevent future issues?
