When sewers clog and fail it’s usually at unexpected times. Most people don’t budget for sewer replacements, and having them replaced is usually expensive. Thanks to modern technology, cured in place pipe, is an alternative to the costly traditional replacement.
What is cured in place pipe?
Cured in place pipe (also known as epoxy sewer lining or trenchless sewer replacement) is a technology that allows a contractor to insert a sleeve into your existing drain, without the need for tearing out your flooring, yard, patio, or landscaping. There are different installation methods with cured in place pipe (CIPP), but the result is the same. Once installed, the epoxy sleeve will act as a new pipe, within the old pipe.
Does it work for all drain pipes?
CIPP works in virtually any type of material. Including cast iron, clay, concrete, plastic, ABS, PVC, and orangeburg.
Does CIPP work for large and small piping?
Yes. CIPP lining can take place in piping from 1.5 inches and larger. As the pipe sizes get smaller, it does create access issues for successful CIPP lining. Checking with your contractor on the appropriate access necessary, will help determine if it’s possible in smaller diameter piping.
Does it work in all conditions of drain pipes?
The short answer is “no”. Being that the epoxy liner utilizes the old pipe as a host to give the liner its shape, if the existing pipe is distorted, it will prohibit the successful installation of the epoxy liner. After a thorough inspection of the existing drain pipe, a cured in place pipe contractor will be able to determine if the liner installation would be successful.
Are there contractors in Sedona that offer cured in place pipe sewer replacement?
Yes, but not many. Being this service is more specialized, you’ll find that not many plumbers offer the service.
Seeking out a specialty contractor is usually the best approach to find the right CIPP company.
What does CIPP lining cost in Sedona?
Although CIPP lining can save you money on reconstruction repairs, you will find that most sewer replacements involve spending thousands of dollars. Getting your sewer replaced is typically not less than $3500.00. In the Sedona area, plan on spending between $80 to $150 per foot for your average cured in place pipe installation.
