The Difference Between Epoxy Pipelining and Structural Pipelining
Pipelining is one of our most innovative services because it eliminates the need to excavate when making pipe repairs. Usually, only 2 access points need to be created to access the damaged pipes underground. This enables us to solve most drain line issues without tearing up your landscaping or replacing entire pipes. It’s a win win for everyone because it saves valuable time and money. Today we’re looking at two pipelining solutions offered by Perma-LinerTM, so read on to learn more.
For drain lines without damage, epoxy is a great material for preventing corrosion and leaks. With this eco-friendly method, epoxy is used to coat the inside walls of pipes. This relining is safe, durable and preserves the life of the existing piping.
With Perma-Liner’s Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) system, a new pipe is essentially created inside the old one. A resin tube is inserted into the damaged pipe and positioned using water or air pressure. It is then cured to form a corrosion-resistant, water-tight seal. This method works best in pipes with a diameter of at least 2 inches, which would be able to accommodate the new pipe.
