What is cured-in-place pipe lining?
Cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining basically inserts a new pipe into the old, damaged pipe, smoothing over damage and joints. It is the method of choice for rehabilitating deteriorated underground sewers and pipes because it is fast, cost-effective and efficient. This is a trenchless technique, which allows us to repair and rehabilitate pipes without digging up your land.
How does CIPP lining work?
CIPP lining uses a flexible tube, impregnated with resin, which is inserted into the pipe and inflated until the liner is flush with the existing pipe wall. Once in place, the resin is left to cure either at ambient temperature or with the help of hot water, steam, or UV light.
That might sound straightforward, but it takes considerable skill to prepare the lining and ensure that it is in the right place before it begins to cure. McAllister’s specialist CIPP teams have been installing liners for decades. Talk to us about installing it on your property.
