Cured in Place Lining (CIPP)

Cured in Place Lining (CIPP) is a trenchless technology used to rehabilitate existing pipelines without the need for excavation.  Instead of removing and replacing the damaged pipe, a new pipe is created within the existing pipe by applying a resin-saturated liner that is then “cured in place”. CIPP has many benefits, including:

  1. Cost-effective: CIPP can be less expensive than traditional methods of pipe repair and replacement because it eliminates the need for excavation and can be completed quickly.
  2. Minimal disruption: CIPP can be completed with minimal disruption to the surrounding environment, as there is no need for excavation, which can be particularly beneficial in urban areas where the disruption caused by excavation can be significant.
  3. Durability: The resin-saturated liner used in CIPP is typically made of strong, durable materials that can last for many years, providing a long-term solution to pipe rehabilitation.
  4. Improved flow: The smooth interior surface of the new pipe created by CIPP can improve flow and reduce the likelihood of blockages.
  5. Environmentally friendly: CIPP is an environmentally friendly method of pipe rehabilitation, as it reduces the amount of waste produced by traditional excavation methods and can help to prevent leaks and other environmental damage caused by damaged pipes.

Overall, CIPP is an effective and efficient method of rehabilitating damaged pipelines that can offer significant benefits over traditional methods of pipe repair and replacement.
