If you’ve ever had sewer line or plumbing problems, you’ve probably had visions of a crew of plumbers tearing apart your front yard, landscaping, and plants. You may have even put off having any major plumbing repairs completed because you don’t want to deal with the headache — and significant expense — of having to re-do your property’s yard. Fortunately, there is a solution that doesn’t require excavation or major landscaping damage: CIPP, or cured-in-place pipe, plumbing. This advanced technology will allow you to not only have your sewer system or plumbing accurately and professionally repaired, but spare you the trouble of dealing with destroyed landscaping. Before you encounter major plumbing problems, here’s what you need to now about CIPP plumbing.
1.It’s technologically advanced.
CIPP plumbing is a form of trenchless pipe repair, which means it doesn’t typically require excavation in order to assess, repair, or replace your pipes. Video inspection makes it possible for plumbing technicians to peek inside your system and target just what is wrong with your lines and what needs repair or replacement. Then, new lines are fed through the old ones, removing the problem of having to dig up your old pipes and ruin your yard. As long as your plumbing is 60 inches in diameter or less, CIPP plumbing is a replacement option — most residential homes meet this requirement.
2.CIPP plumbing is a faster repair solution.
Part of the reason traditional plumbing repairs that require excavation are so expensive is because they take so long. It’s not uncommon for days to be required to replace pipes and sewer lines using traditional methods, especially when the weather is adverse. With CIPP plumbing, repairs and replacements can be completed within a day. This is especially beneficial when you need to have your system up and running again so you can get back to your normal routine.
3.It is landscaping-friendly.
CIPP plumbing installation doesn’t call for digging up your yard, which is one of the major drawbacks of traditional excavation to reach pipes and sewer lines. With a video camera inspection and less invasive repair and replacement options, CIPP plumbing is your best bet if you want to keep your yard intact.
4.CIPP plumbing is more affordable.
Because a large crew of workers is not required to install CIPP plumbing, it is less costly. Traditional plumbing repairs that require excavation are often so expensive not only because of the need for more technicians to be involved, but because of the pricey equipment that must be used. CIPP plumbing can be installed without traditional digging equipment, so it won’t cost you as much money. Cured in place pipe also takes less time to install — less time spent on repairs where labor is charged by the hour means more money in your pocket once the job is finished.
5.Cured in place pipe is versatile.
No matter how large your yard is or what structures are on it — such as sidewalks, gardens, roadways, or even gas lines — cured-in-place pipe can be installed without disturbing your property. It’s an excellent plumbing repair and replacement solution for small and large residential homes, and can even be used in commercial buildings. You’ll have more options when you opt to have CIPP plumbing installed, as opposed to the limitations that come with traditional sewer line and plumbing repairs.
