Everything You Need to Know About the Cured in Place Pipe Liner

One of the most common repair methods used by plumbers, in order to repair the damage on pre-installed pipelines, is to use a cured in place pipe liner. Basically, this is a small section of a jointless pipe, that has a pipe inside it (a pipe within a pipe). The diameter of the pipe starts from as little as 0.1, and can go to a maximum of 2.8 meters, which makes it applicable for almost any kind of pipeline nowadays. It is one of the most widely used rehabilitation methods in the world today, and is used in numerous different applications, ranging from gas, to chemical, and water pipelines.

The Process

If you notice clear damage on any of the existing pipelines in your house, you should call a plumbing company . The company will first send over an employee to inspect the pipe and take measurements. After the cured in place pipe liner has been made to measure, the company will insert a resin saturated felt tube into the pipe. The whole process is trenchless, so little to no digging will be required for the process. This is one of the main reasons why the process is so commonly preferred by homeowners. Nobody likes watching a landscape truck rolling over their garden, and uprooting the soil, just to locate a single pipe.


After the cured in place pipe liner has been installed, the company will use a miniature CCTV camera in order to check whether it has been fitted correctly or not. Water will be run through the pipes in order to check whether the pipelines are intact after the repair work has been completed. You can also follow them on Twitter for more information.
