What is Pipe Rehab?

Methods of Non-Invasive or Minimally Invasive Remediation:

CIPP LINING: This method allows the installer to install through a single pit or cleanout all the way to the sewer main in the street without excavating a second pit at the main. Resin is mixed, inserted through saturation into a tube and launched into the existing pipe where it is inflated and held till cured leaving a new pipe inside the old one.  Learn More about the Quik-Shot for this method. 

AIPPR COATING: When smaller diameter pipe has tie-ins from other piping, this method applies poly urea to the wall of the existing pipe building a composite with the existing pipe to a fully habilitated better than new pipe. Learn more about the Quik-Coating System for this method.

PIPE BURSTING: This method may be used to replace existing pipe with HDPE pipe. Two pits are opened, and HDPE pipe is pulled following the lignment of the old pipe.

The Choice is Yours

When your sewer backs up because of root intrusion, scale or corrosion you have some choices to make:

  • You can defer fixing the problem by setting up a scheduled cleaning program to stay ahead of the continued root growth or scale until the line inevitably collapses.
  • You can decide to dig up the old pipe and lay a brand new pipe from the house to the street.
  • You can line the pipe with the CIPP lateral lining method, but this method cannot be performed after a collapse.
  • You can coat the pipe with the AIPPR Coating process to address piping with tie-in issues.
