Cure-in-Place Piping (CIPP) at a glance

Cure-in-place piping is a relatively new technology that aims to repair failing pipes (from small residential water pipes to massive city sewer mains) instead of going through the cost and labor intensive process of digging up and replacing old systems. It does so by inserting a flexible, new felt liner inside existing pipes (a “pipe within a pipe”) and then curing it in place to create a safe and long-lasting replacement all without any digging or road closures.

Benefits of Cure-in-Place Piping (CIPP)

  • Minimally invasive: CIPP is a trenchless repair method, so it avoids the need for extensive digging and disruption to your property that traditional pipe replacement requires. This saves time, money, and hassle.
  • Faster installation: Because there’s no excavation involved, cured-in-place piping can be installed much quicker than traditional methods. This can get your plumbing system back up and running faster.
  • Cost-effective: By eliminating the need for heavy equipment and labor associated with digging, CIPP can be a more cost-effective solution compared to traditional pipe replacement.
  • Long-lasting repairs: CIPP liners can create a strong, durable pipe that can last for decades, depending on the material and application.
  • Improved pipe functionality: CIPP liners can create a smooth, corrosion-resistant interior surface within the old pipe, which can improve water flow and reduce the risk of future leaks and blockages.
