Utilizing CIPP (cured-in-place piping) in horizontal pipes is becoming increasingly common. Instead of replacement, CIPP offers rehabilitation of existing pipes. The same benefits for using CIPP with horizontal pipes can be applied to vertical pipes as well. Use cured-in-place pipes to save time, money, and your building.
CIPP saves you time on vertical pipe repairs. The curing process can take 4 to 12 hours on average, though some very large pipes may fall outside of this average. Even when a large project exceeds the average, CIPP still represents a significant savings of time. Lining and curing the pipe will be quicker than replacing every pipe. This is especially true of interior pipes that are inside the walls, or deep underground. These pipes would have to be excavated before repairs could begin. Once the pipes were replaced, restoration would further delay the return of business as usual.
Replacing vertical pipes is almost always an expensive proposition. However, cured-in-place piping reduces the overall cost of the project. While CIPP may occasionally cost more foot-by-foot, it doesn’t carry the same associated costs. CIPP for vertical pipes removes the need to open up walls, in order to access the pipes. Because of this, CIPP takes less time to install than replacing your pipes, allowing your business to reopen sooner. Moreover, CIPP is known to last longer than most traditional pipe repair. Opting to rehabilitate and reline your pipes gives you thirty or more years of fully functional vertical pipes, and cuts down the cost of future repairs.
Save your building
Sometimes, replacing corroded and broken pipes can be almost as damaging to your building as leaving them in place. You may be required to open walls to reach pipes, or dig deep trenches to replace pipes that run deep. Trenchless pipe repair technology prevents this necessity. Using CIPP to rehabilitate vertical pipes protects your building from excavation and damage. For this very reason, this technique is being used on historically protected buildings with increasing frequency. Even if your building isn’t a protected historical sight, you can still preserve it the same way.
The benefits of CIPP apply not only to horizontal pipes, but vertical pipes as well. Relining your vertical pipes saves on time, money, and the condition of your building. Reach out for an estimate and Q&A session today.
