The disadvantages of C.I.P.P. lining include its inability to correct for insufficient slope in a sewer line, as well as the inability to rehabilitate sewer lines that have reached a point of catastrophic failure. Fortunately, a skilled professional should be aware of these obstacles prior to drafting a repair solution.
How much does C.I.P.P. lining in Prescott cost?
The cost of C.I.P.P. lining in Prescott can vary significantly from project to project.

One method involves pulling the epoxy sleeve through the host pipe, while the other involves inverting the epoxy sleeve into the host pipe. The method used depends on whether or not the path of the sewer line is straight, as well as how any secondary lines that tie into the main sewer line will be addressed. Knowing which method to be used certainly influences the project price. Some companies have the technology to rehabilitate an entire sewer line in one contiguous piece, and then cut out openings in the epoxy liner for secondary lines after it has cured. This service greatly influences a project’s price! Generally speaking, one can expect to pay anywhere from $4,000.00 to $11,000.00 for C.I.P.P. lining in Prescott.
