What is CIPP lining?
The cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining is a process to rehabilitate existing sewer pipes, due to age, cracks or leaks. This rehabilitation is done to avoid having to replace the pipes and has been used for over 30 years throughout the United States and on numerous District projects.
How is the pipe lining installed?
The pipe lining process is a three step process:
Cleaning and Inspection: Prior to lining the existing sewer, it is cleaned using high pressure water hoses and video cameras to inspect the cleaning and record the condition of the sewer pipe.
Pipe Lining: The process starts with placing a flexible liner into the existing sewer. Steam or heated water is forced into the liner, pushing the liner tightly against the existing sewer walls. The heat causes the liner material to cure creating a new pipe within the existing sewer that is free of cracks and holes. During the installation, sewer flows are re-routed using pumps and hoses, to ensure sanitary service to customers.
Reinstating Laterals: Once the liner has been cured, the existing lateral pipes serving each home need to be cut open. This process is completed using a remote operated cutter and video camera.
Why line the sewer?
By lining the sewer, the District will avoid traditional replacement by excavation. This saves time and money.
What are the benefits of CIPP?
CIPP allows for pipes to be rehabilitated in place of traditional replacement that requires excavation and disturbs the surrounding neighborhoods and businesses.
CIPP is less expensive than replacing the pipe.
CIPP allows for an increased sewer flow capacity.
CIPP has a 50-year design life.
CIPP is completed in 1-3 days versus 6-9 months for traditional pipe replacement construction.
