The very first step in performing a successful sewer epoxy pipe lining rehabilitation, you need to know the condition of the sewer line. What type of pipe is currently there? What is the condition of the pipe? What size is the pipe? Are there any bends in the pipe? Are there any cracks? Holes? These questions can be answered by running a waterproof drain camera down the sewer or drain pipe and inspect the condition.
After a visual inspection of the drain or sewer pipe, the pipe will need to be cleaned to help create a nice smooth liner.
To start the process we measure out a felt liner and bladder.
We then measure and mix a two-part epoxy which is then poured into the felt liner.
A roller assembly is used to saturate the felt liner with epoxy. The liner is then inserted and rolled into an inversion tank. This tank will insert the liner into the pipe using air pressure. Essentially, the liner is blown into place.
The new inserted liner will take the shape of the host pipe. Then a calibration tube, which holds air pressure will be used to hold the felt liner in place. This calibration tube is inserted into the felt liner in the same way the felt liner is inserted into the pipe. It will hold air pressure and remain in the pipe, until the felt liner is cured.
We then set up our hot water boiler system to help cure the liner. Using a hot water boiler system will decrease the cure time from 5 hours to just one hour. Once cured we remove the calibration tube and equipment and what’s left is a nice new seamless piece of pipe that is extremely durable and comes with a 50 year warranty.
The sewer epoxy pipe lining process is a great way to save a ton of money on property reconstruction. This method is much less disruptive than traditional “dig up and replace” methods.
