Common Misconceptions About CIPP Lining
CIPP lining, or cured-in-place-pipe lining, is a method used by pipe lining companies to repair old or damaged pipes without the need for excavation. However, there are several misconceptions surrounding CIPP lining that can lead to misunderstandings or misinformation. NuFlow St. Louis debunks these today.
CIPP Lining Causes Reduced Pipe Diameter
One common misconception about CIPP lining is that it reduces the diameter of the repaired pipe. However, this is not accurate. In fact, CIPP lining can improve flow capacity by reducing friction and preventing future buildup within the pipe. Additionally, the thickness of the lining used for trenchless pipe lining in St. Louis, MO, is carefully controlled to ensure minimal to no impact on the diameter of the pipe.
CIPP Lining Is Not Durable
Another misconception is that CIPP lining is not as durable as traditional pipe replacement methods. The lining we use for CIPP and sewer pipe lining is typically composed of resin and fiberglass, which is highly resistant to corrosion, leaks, and root intrusions. CIPP lining can also extend the lifespan of your pipes by up to 50 years, providing a long-lasting and solution for pipe repair.
