Few advancements have had as profound an impact as cured-in-place pipe lining (CIPP).

At CPI Service, we’re proud to offer comprehensive CIPP services to homeowners in the San Jose, CA area, providing a reliable, efficient, and long-lasting solution to a wide range of plumbing issues. Let’s delve into the details of how CIPP works, the materials involved, and why it’s the preferred choice for trenchless pipe repair.


Cured-in-place pipe lining, commonly abbreviated as CIPP, is a trenchless rehabilitation technique used to repair existing pipelines without the need for excavation. This method involves inserting a flexible liner into the damaged pipe, impregnating it with a resin, and curing it in place to form a new, seamless pipe within the existing one. CIPP is suitable for a variety of pipe materials, including cast iron, clay, PVC, and concrete, making it a versatile solution for both residential and commercial plumbing systems.


The CIPP Process:

  1. Inspection and Assessment: The first step in the CIPP process is to conduct a thorough inspection of the existing pipe using a high-definition camera. This allows our technicians to assess the extent of the damage, identify any obstructions or blockages, and determine the suitability of the pipe for CIPP lining.

  2. Pipe Cleaning: Before the CIPP liner can be installed, the existing pipe must be thoroughly cleaned to remove any debris, scale, or buildup. High-pressure water jetting equipment is used to flush out the pipe and prepare it for lining.

  3. Liner Installation: Once the pipe is clean and prepared, the CIPP liner is inserted into the damaged section of the pipe using a specialized inversion drum or winch system. The liner is made of a flexible material such as felt or fiberglass and is impregnated with a resin that cures when exposed to heat or ultraviolet light.

  4. Inflation and Curing: Once the liner is in place, it is inflated using air pressure or water to ensure a snug fit against the walls of the existing pipe. The resin is then cured using heat or ultraviolet light, causing it to harden and form a new, structurally sound pipe within the old one.

  5. Testing and Final Inspection: After the resin has cured and testing is complete, a final inspection is conducted to ensure that the CIPP lining is free from defects and properly bonded to the existing pipe. This ensures the long-term durability and reliability of the repaired pipe.


Materials Used in CIPP:

  1. Resin: The resin used in CIPP lining is a key component of the process. It is typically a two-part epoxy resin that cures quickly when exposed to heat or ultraviolet light. The resin is impregnated into the CIPP liner before installation and hardens to form a durable, corrosion-resistant barrier within the existing pipe.

  2. Liner: The CIPP liner is typically made of a flexible material such as felt or fiberglass. It is designed to conform to the shape of the existing pipe and provide a smooth, seamless surface for the resin to adhere to. The liner comes in various thicknesses and diameters to accommodate different pipe sizes and configurations.


Benefits of Cured-In-Place Pipe Lining:

  1. Minimally Invasive: CIPP lining requires minimal excavation compared to traditional pipe repair methods, reducing disruption to landscaping, driveways, and other structures on your property.

  2. Cost-Effective: While CIPP lining may have a higher upfront cost than traditional excavation, it often proves to be more cost-effective in the long run due to reduced labor and restoration expenses.

  3. Durable and Long-Lasting: CIPP lining creates a seamless, corrosion-resistant barrier within the existing pipe, extending its lifespan and reducing the likelihood of future leaks or failures.

  4. Versatile: CIPP lining can be used to repair pipes of various materials, sizes, and configurations, making it a versatile solution for a wide range of plumbing issues.

  5. Environmentally Friendly: CIPP lining minimizes the environmental impact of pipe repair by reducing the amount of excavation and disruption to the surrounding ecosystem.
