Pipe lining might seem like new technology but the professionals at Pipe Surgeons have been providing the best trenchless pipe lining in Port St. Lucie, FL for 40 years. The days of messy entrenching techniques have been going away for decades, and for good reason.
The Bad Old Days
Pipe repairs used to mean large digging operations outside, and torn up walls inside your home or business. At the very least, it meant inconvenience for up to several days. At the worst, the hazardous conditions and materials meant having to shut down your business or move out of your home until the repairs were complete. Then there's the thousands of dollars in added expenses to repair the damage to your walls, floors, and landscaping.
The first step toward a better way to repair pipes, and one that is still used by some pipe lining companies, was called Pipe Bursting. This process still involved digging down to the head of the pipe, but no longer required trenching. A heavy duty cable was then pulled through the pipe, followed by a head piece that would break up the old pipe while pulling a new liner behind. The main disadvantage to this system was difficulty with sharp angles and the need to then go back through and cut holes for any connecting pipes in the system.
The biggest breakthrough came when Cured-In-Place-Pipe(CIPP) lining was developed. This advanced system uses quick curing resins to allow seamless repairs in the cast iron pipe lining process. Best of all, it can be done with almost zero impact on your business day or home life. The process is done from readily accessible points in your pipe system and takes hours, not days, to complete.
There are additional advantages to using CIPP pipe lining to repair your old pipes. The material is soft when first installed, which allows it to maneuver through even 90 degree angles with ease. It can also be pre-cut to account for access to connecting pipes. If the plans to your plumbing aren't available, or easily measured out, a robot can be sent down the pipe lining after it has cured, and cut out the necessary holes with absolute precision.
