Trenchless pipe lining, is a minimally invasive sewer repair alternative to traditional repairs. Trenchless solutions can often be completed within a day, and can last over 50 years. However, there are a couple of factors which can affect the longevity of trenchless pipe lining in Charlotte, NC. Next Level Pipe Lining discusses these below:
Physical Conditions of the Pipe
Most pipe lining companies know that the pipes they are working with play an integral role in the CIPP process. Next Level Pipe Lining is no different, we look at everything from the physical attributes of the pipe to the overall condition it appears to be in. Some pipes are more susceptible to soil shifting and underground pressures, particularly the pipes which are larger-bore and longer in length. Therefore, these kinds of pipes require a thicker coating of epoxy to line its walls with and ensure it can withstand the natural occurrences happening around it.
Aging, corroding cast iron pipe lining can have a negative impact on the overall condition of the pipe, leaving CIPP treatment ultimately ineffective to the original pipe. So, it's always best to make sure the original pipe is in good condition before it undergoes the process.
Location of the Pipe
The pipe's location in the ground can also play a part in the lining's durability through hydrostatic forces and objects that may be sitting on top of the pipe above ground. Trees near the sewer line can potentially cause cracked pipes and leaks. For the sewer pipe lining job to last a long time, it's important to remove tree roots around it. It's also important to consider how deep the pipe is in the ground, because the deeper it is, the more pressures will act on it.
