Epoxy Pipe Lining Basics

Epoxy Pipe Lining Basics
Epoxy pipe lining is a form of pipe rehabilitation that’s been steadily gaining popularity in the industry. Pipe lining companies like Nu Flow AK utilize this method to fix broken pipes from the inside, and its efficiency and reliability make it one of the most sought-after repair options on the market. If you are considering trenchless pipe lining in Bellevue, WA, consider reaching out to Nu Flow AK.

Here’s a rundown of basic information on epoxy pipe lining.

How Epoxy Works

Pipe lining companies begin the process by assessing the extent of the pipe damage. The lines are then cleaned, followed by inserting a flexible tube with epoxy resin into the damaged pipe. Next, we inflate the resin-coated tube until it fits snugly against the pipe’s walls, then we leave the tube to cure overnight. When the resin hardens and dries, it creates a “pipe within a pipe,” which renovates your damaged piping and protects it from future damage caused by corrosion, leaks, and cracks.

Benefits of Epoxy Lining Pipe Repair

  1. It takes less time than other forms of pipe repair, which means lower costs for you and less disruption to your life. For instance, CIPP lining involves fewer toxic fumes than other materials used in pipe repair, so there’s no need to evacuate or suspend business operations during the procedure.
  1. After installation, epoxy pipelining will protect your pipes from further damage for more than 50 years. This means that you can rest easy knowing you won’t have to worry about them again anytime soon.

How it Differs From Traditional Pipe Repair

Traditional dig-and-replace methods entailed open-cut methods. Unfortunately, this often results in extensive damage to the surrounding property and landscape. The labor cost is also substantial, as is the cost to repair the landscape once the excavations are done. Trenchless solutions such as epoxy pipe lining and cast iron pipe lining, on the other hand, offer an alternative method that is far less invasive.

Instead, we can repair the affected pipe without digging up the ground surrounding it by accessing existing entry points or sewer cleanouts.
