Residential Trenchless CIPP Restoration
The Trenchless CIPP Pipe Restoration System is now available and affordable for Residential Customers. Cracked drain lines in your home’s foundation can be repaired without having to open floors inside your home to access those broken pipes. The CIPP System offers the homeowner substantial savings over traditional methods which require extensive repairs to the home after the pipes are replaced.
What is Cured-In-Place Pipelining?
CIPP is a technology developed to rehabilitate sanitary drains lines by fixing them from the inside out. In the old days, the only cure for cracked and failing drain lines was to tear open walls and floors to replace the piping, a very messy, time consuming and costly method. “Continuous Air Inverted CIPP Pipelining” is the wave of the future. Continuous Air Inverted CIPP lining is a straight forward concept. A felt tube constructed of interwoven fibers and coated with PVC gives the liner structural stability. A two part epoxy resin is then introduced to the material and evenly distributed. This process is referred to as “The Wet Out”. The continuous liner is then inverted into the host pipe by “Air”. Unlike the spotty adhesion problems of pull in place liners, FPS utilizes the Air Inversion CIPP process.
Example of CRACKED Fitting illustrates why the “stop and start” lining is money wasted when these un-lined and un-protected fittings are destined to fail.
The lining material is literally turned “Inside out” during installation, allowing the resins to now make 100% contact with the host pipe. Once this full length continuous liner is in place, a bladder-like calibration tube inside of it is inflated to a sufficient pressure to compress the liner against the host pipe. This allows a 100% water tight seal as it fills cracks, holes and splits in the host pipe. The resins then “set up” and harden during the “Curing” process. Once the Curing process is complete, the bladder is then deflated and removed. Rather than merely having sections of your pipe lined, like the stop and start method or the problems of pull in place liners, this Air Inverted continuous CIPP Liner is a “pipe within a pipe” forming a continuous full length and STRUCTURAL repair. The laterals are now re-instated by an optically guided robotic cutter. After completion, the client now has a continuously lined pipe from top to bottom that will last for many years to come.
