How Long Does Epoxy Pipe Lining Versus Cured-In-Place Pipe Lining Last?
C.I.P.P Versus Epoxy Pipe Lining - Which One Lasts Longer?
There Are Two Popular Types Of Trenchless Pipe Lining!
Our technology has been around since 1997. Most people don’t know about it, but it is called cured in place pipe lining (older technology), and epoxy pipe lining (newer and better). It simply installs inside the old pipe. It doesn’t matter if there are holes and cracks; it fills those in.
Both have a minimum engineered life of 50 years. Our warranty is 50 years to match the engineered life. When we’re done, we make a video recording of all the light pipes. We upload them online and send you one email with your 50-year transferable warranty, which means it can go to somebody else who buys the home in the future. You also receive the videos in that email, and you’ll receive a payment for the invoice. It takes about four days to do.
How long does trenchless epoxy pipe lining last? Well, this is the most beautiful thing of it all. Maybe you’ve gone to Home Depot when you’ve bought epoxy glue, the two-party epoxy where you mix part A and B together. They react together and heat up, and it turns into rock.
When we install epoxy pipe lining inside a pipe, there are literally two tubes of chemicals that get mixed together and pumped into the pipe, and it will harden inside the pipe between one hour and three hours, depending on which speed epoxy we use.
It cannot degrade with acids, alkaline or volatile chemicals like acetone, so it is expected to survive at least 100 years.
What Are The Steps In Trenchless Pipe Lining?
Trenchless epoxy pipe lining is a process used to rehabilitate existing cast iron pipes without the need for traditional excavation methods. Here’s how it works:
Inspection: The first step in the process is to inspect the pipeline to determine the extent of the damage and identify any blockages or obstructions that may need to be cleared.
Cleaning: Next, the pipeline is thoroughly cleaned using high-pressure water jets or other specialized equipment to remove any debris or buildup.
Lining Preparation: After cleaning, the pipe is inspected again to ensure that it is clean and free of obstructions. Then, the epoxy resin liner is prepared according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Lining Installation: The epoxy liner is inserted into the pipe and positioned using a specialized inversion system. The liner is then inflated and cured using hot water, steam, or UV light.
Inspection and Testing: Once the liner has cured, the pipe is inspected again to ensure that the liner is properly installed and that there are no leaks or other defects.
Restoration: The final step is to restore the pipeline to its original condition. This may include repairing any connections or fittings, as well as restoring any landscaping or pavement that was disturbed during the installation process.
Overall, trenchless epoxy pipe lining is a cost-effective and efficient way to rehabilitate pipelines without the need for excavation, making it an ideal solution for a wide range of applications.
How Much Does Epoxy Pipe Lining Cost?
So how much does it cost to reline pipes for a 2,000 square foot house instead of replacing the pipes?
It’s between $17,000 and $20,000. If you were to excavate the floors to physically replace the pipes it would take about two months and you would have to pay between $50,000 and $70,000.
It only takes 3 days to line the pipes, and we email you copies of the final videos of the re-lined pipes with your 50-year transferable warranty and your paid in full invoice. You get that all in one email. You can never lose any of that, and you can just forward that email to somebody who buys it properly in the future.
