Debunking Common Misconceptions About CIPP Lining
Cured-in-place-pipe or CIPP lining is a popular method of repairing old and damaged sewer lines without having to dig up the existing landscaping. At NuFlow St. Louis, we offer this solution as part of trenchless pipe lining in St. Louis, MO. Despite being a common procedure, there are still several misconceptions surrounding this repair method. We dispel these myths below:
CIPP Lining is Similar to Pipe Replacement
While the end-result of CIPP lining is similar to pipe replacement, wherein homeowners are left with a like-new pipe interior that’s both strong and durable, these two processes are not the same. With pipe replacement, the damaged pipe is excavated and removed from the sewer system, allowing the replacement to be installed in its place. With CIPP sewer pipe lining, the damaged pipe is cured with epoxy, sealing any cracks or leaks and reinforcing the existing pipe.
CIPP Lining is Expensive
CIPP is cheaper than traditional methods of repair offered by pipe lining companies. Since traditional repair and replacement requires excavating your lawn to access the damaged area, this method is more tedious and labor-intensive. Additionally, homeowners would have to spend extra on restoring their landscape once the repairs are completed.
CIPP Lining Requires No Excavation
While CIPP pipe lining is a trenchless method of repair, there is still some digging involved in its process. That said, this is limited to two small holes that serve as an entry and exit point into your sewer system.
