Understanding the Intricacies of Pipe Relining: What are Your Options?
- Cured-in-place Pipelining (CIPP): A resin-saturated felt tube is inserted into the damaged pipe and it is then cured in place.
- Pull-in-place Pipelining (PIP): This involves positioning a new pipe within the damaged one and securing it.
The choice of relining method often depends on your specific situation, such as the degree of pipe damage and its accessibility.
Demystifying the Role of Different Pipe Relining Materials
- Epoxy resin: Renowned for its strength and adaptability, it works well with both CIPP and PIP methods.
- Polyester resin: An alternative to epoxy, polyester offers resistance to chemicals and water intrusion.
While the right choice depends on individual circumstances, it’s vital to consult professionals well-versed in these materials’ unique properties.
