CIPP is a sewer pipe rehabilitation process where liner systems are used to repair the pipes from inside out. A lining material is used to reinforce a faulty pipeline before it fails. The CIPP liner involves a tube made of fabric coated with resin that can adhere to the existing pipe and harden under heat.
Furthermore, this is a jointless repair from manhole to manhole, thus reducing opportunities for infiltration by eliminating existing joints currently in place.
There are numerous advantages to the CIPP process over conventional dig and replacing. To name a few, it is faster, less disruptive, more cost-effective and safer. Additionally, these repairs will extend the useful life of the pipeline to 75 years.
