There are several different methods for fixing old or damaged pipes. If a pipe has just sprung a simple leak, then a plumber can come and repair it without too much trouble. This process usually involves inserting a pipe about one size smaller into the original and applying expanding urethane foam crack filler in the space between the two pipes. However, if the pipe is either too old or worn-out, then it may need to be replaced. The most common cause of busted pipes is freezing water. When water freezes inside of your pipes it expands. Since pipes are not built to be flexible, repeated expansion and contraction will weaken the integrity of pipes and eventually, they will have to be replaced.
The most common method of replacing water pipes used to be trenching. This old-fashioned process requires digging up the defective pipe in its entirety, not just the damaged sections. Digging out pipes for trenching can be an extensive process, as the entire cylinder needs to be exposed. This means that even the bottom of the pipe must be fully excavated. Due to the painstaking nature of this method, trenching became far less commonly used after cured in-place pipe restoration was introduced.
What Exactly is Cured In-Place Pipe Restoration?
Cured in-place pipe restoration is a technique that can repair existing pipelines without digging out trenches to replace them. This method can renew and restore corroded piping systems by creating a long-term, structural pipe inside the existing pipe system. The rehabilitated pipe will come out better than new with an increased flow rate, sealed cracks, and no weakened joints to eliminate the risk of groundwater pollution.
Cured in-place pipe restoration also involves installing an epoxy liner that will protect the interior of your pipe from additional deterioration, thereby prolonging the life of your entire pipe system. This system is particularly useful when repairing clay, concrete, metal, iron, steel, PVC, and fiberglass pipe systems.
What Are the Advantages of Using Cured In-Place Pipe Restoration?
There are many benefits to cured in-place pipe restoration. Since this method does not require tearing up your lawn and uprooting any landscaping you might have in the area, it is significantly faster and more cost-effective than trenching. Digging out your pipes can take quite a bit of time/manpower, and once the process is complete homeowners have to pay to repair your lawn in any affected areas.
Trenching can also be quite dangerous without proper supervision from your utility company to mark the ground in areas where it is safe to dig. Contacting and scheduling a time to meet with a utility company supervisor so that they can inspect your lawn is yet another factor that makes trenching such a lengthy process. Another benefit to choosing cured in-place pipe restoration is that it is far more environmentally conscious than trenching. Digging up your pipes can do serious damage to the ecosystem in your backyard, especially if any toxins any discharged during the process.
