Pipe Rehabilitation - What To Know Before You Get Started

Many pipe systems can’t stand up to the yearly wear and tear that comes with frequent use. As time moves on, it’s necessary to rehabilitate and repair the pipes. Old pipes break down over time, and it can be time-consuming to find ways to locate where the repair needs to be done, to decide which sections of the pipe need to be replaced, and where to find qualified companies who can carry out the job. However, you have our guarantee that Advantage Reline is the go-to source for pipe rehabilitation. Through our focus on trenchless pipe rehabilitation, we ensure that your pipes can last for decades to come and that they’ll be safe for you, your family, and the environment. 

Why Pipe Rehabilitation?

The biggest reason for rehabilitating pipes is because they can’t stand up to the needs of daily use. Whether it be curing water to your home, or from your home, some issue prevents your pipe system from working the way it should. The natural question might be, “if the system is in really bad shape, why not just replace it?” The main reason most clients choose pipe rehabilitation instead of pipe replacement is due to costs incurred and time spent. When you choose to replace your pipes, you’re dependent on bringing large pieces of equipment to replace large pieces of pipe. It takes time to find and locate which sections of pipe need to be removed, what to replace them with, when to begin excavation, ensuring that the excavation complies with city and county regulations, as well as carrying out the excavation and replacement. 

We feel like our clients don’t want to deal with the issues of checking compliances, excavation, and waiting for the job to get done. We know there’s a faster and easier way of getting things done. That’s why Advantage Reline specializes in Trenchless Pipe Rehabilitation. 

How Does Trenchless Pipe Rehabilitation Work?

As the name suggests, Trenchless Pipe Rehabilitation makes sure that you don’t need to worry about the excavation process. We supplement the existing pipe infrastructure with lasting repair processes to make sure that pipes can last. We primarily carry out our Trenchless Pipe Rehabilitation through two different methods: Sprayed-In-Place Pipe Repair (SIPP for short) and Cured-In-Place Pipe Repair (CIPP for short). Both of these processes of trenchless rehabilitation rely on different epoxy-based resin linings to strengthen and seal the pipes from damage. 

In a SIPP rehabilitation process, we first thread a small camera through a small hole in the ground and inspect the repair area. We keep an eye out for fractured pipes, invasive roots, and large dirt clods within the pipes. Once we’ve surveyed the full scope of the damage, we thread a small spray apparatus through the hole and begin to coat the walls of the pipe system with our patented sealant. This seals up small cracks in the pipe and protects them from expanding.

A CIPP process begins similarly through a manual inspection through a miniature camera feed, however, the biggest difference is through the lining which we use to cure the pipes. For a CIPP Trenchless Pipe Rehabilitation, we thread a large insert, inflate it, and cure it in place through steam or UV light depending on the severity of the damage the pipe system already sustained. This insert helps to fill in larger sections of missing pipe that may have completely corroded, which will help the pipe system maintain its integrity and shape and continue to function. 
We stand by both of these pipe rehabilitation methods, and we stand by the fact that our quality of work is unmatched. We go so far as to certify that your will repair will last you with a 50-year lifetime warranty. We want to make sure that you feel peace of mind and trust that your pipes will work for you, and we know that Advantage Reline will make sure you feel that after we rehabilitate your pipes.
