Depending on the specifics of your project, we recommend the method that will provide the optimal outcome, always bearing in mind factors such as complexity, sewer line direction, and the need to avoid unnecessary disruptions like street excavations.
In most common scenarios, we opt for the Cured-in-Place Pipe (CIPP) lining method. Also known as 'Pipe Lining,' this technique revitalizes damaged pipes by inserting a fiberglass tube coated with epoxy resin into the impaired pipe, inflating it like a balloon, and allowing it to harden. This process essentially creates a new 'pipe within a pipe.' The key advantages of CIPP include minimal disturbances to streets, sidewalks, and landscaping, along with the creation of a jointless and corrosion-resistant lining. However, bear in mind that CIPP decreases the pipe's internal diameter slightly from around 4 inches to approximately 3.5 inches.
On the other hand, Pipe Bursting involves the use of a bursting head inserted into the damaged pipeline, attached to a new pipe piece. Subsequently, the old pipe shatters and eliminates as the new one takes its place, essentially doing exactly what it sounds – 'bursting' your pipes. Despite the need for two excavation pits for insertion and removal, pipe bursting is a remarkable option for homes with outdated or undersized pipes. Unlike pipe lining, pipe bursting does not alter the water flow and maintains a 4-inch diameter. It's an essential factor for homes in areas susceptible to extreme weather conditions where larger pipes are required for efficient water management. In these cases, pipe bursting proves to be a financially desirable option with lower per-foot-cost, despite the increased digging requirements.
