Many professionals continue to make big bucks on trench pipe repair. There is a lot of misinformation around CIPP methods. Many people still have no clue it’s even an option. It is critical to be familiar with the available solutions to ensure you are choosing the best one for your needs.
CIPP is cured in place pipe. It is a liner material that is slipped inside of a pipe and then cured and adhered to a pipe. The result is a long-lasting and durable solution. The liner is very slim and will not disrupt the flow of the pipe.
One of the greatest advantages of CIPP is the ability to insert the liner without extensive trenching or digging. In fact, there should be little to no digging for CIPP repairs. Instead, the materials are inserted using a utility hole or an access point. The only digging necessary is to reach these points.
