Interior view of a sewer lineTrenchless sewer repair is an effective method of repairing sewer pipes. It doesn’t involve destructively excavating and removing large portions of flooring, foundation, and walls to expose the system’s pipes. Several methods can be used, including cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining.

Arrow Sewer & Drain is proud to offer cured-in-place pipe services and other drain repair and cleaning offerings to residential and commercial clients throughout north and central New Jersey. Here, we detail the timeline of CIPP lining and how long you can expect it to take.

What Is CIPP?

CIPP delivers efficient, long-term solutions for property owners with damaged underground piping systems. Professionals use CIPP repair methods on pipes that are at least 80 percent intact.

This trenchless sewer repair method is effective on aging sewer, water, gas, and industrial pipes. It can extend their lifespan by fifty years or more. CIPP involves installing new pipe lining directly inside the old, failing pipe without requiring excavation for removal or replacement. The newly installed pipe lining works to restore flow capacity, prevent infiltration, and protect against further corrosion. Furthermore, CIPP is often a cost-effective alternative to digging and pipe replacement.

Property owners can elect another trenchless repair method if the pipe is beyond repair. This is called pipe bursting. This method involves breaking the damaged pipe apart and simultaneously running a new one in its place.

CIPP Timeline

Many property owners choose CIPP over other methods because of how quickly professionals can perform it. Experienced and knowledgeable service providers, such as Arrow Sewer & Drain, can complete nearly all CIPP repairs in one day of work. 

CIPP procedure typically involves the following steps:

  • The failing pipe is inspected and thoroughly cleaned.
  • Professionals saturate an absorbent felt fabric liner with a thermosetting resin.
  • Through an access point, technicians insert the liner into the old pipe.
  • Professionals press the liner against the existing pipe’s inner walls with an inflatable bladder.
  • Technicians inject hot water to cure and harden the resin into a smooth, effective pipe liner.
  • Once the curing process is complete, technicians reopen the lateral connection points and reconnect the service lines.
  • Professionals seal the ends of the new liner and restore access points.
