We removed this segment of pipe from a recent pipe replacement project to show you how our unique cured in place pipe repair can make a pipe as badly damaged as this one operate like its brand new.
Our cured in place pipe liner has now been applied to the corroded pipe and been allowed to set. As you can see, it's molded itself to the pipe's original shape and attached to the sides of what remained.
As these photos show, the pipe can function as well as it did originally. This pipe was just entirely repaired for a fraction of the cost of a replacement.
We can clear this nasty scale buildup from cast iron pipe by relining.
First we clean the copper pipe, then we blow in the epoxy which coats the pipe and prevents further problems with electrolysis and erosion. this process can be performed in copper, iron and galvanized pipe from half inch up to two inch pipe.
The only thing holding this pipe together is the calcification that has built up over the years.
Before lining this pipe. It first has to be completely descaled and hydro jetted. This process takes the most time in the lining process.
This is a picture after thoroughly cleaning the pipe and installing the liner. The pipe is better than new, with increased flow rates and an expected 100 year life span.
Orangeburgh pipe was manufactured from the late 40's to the early 70's. This pipe is called fiber pipe because it is actually made from fiber and pitch. Although it has lasted for many years, roots do invade the pipe at the joints and also the pipe will delaminate.
This pipe has a root pushing in that is almost blocking the entire pipe. Our pipe bursting process for repairing sewer lines only requires two small entries. One next to the house and one at the property line in the alley, saving the yard!
