The Process of CIPP

Pipe Lining

Cured-in-place piping or CIPP is an approach to trenchless pipe lining in Honolulu, HI that our team here at Nu Flow South Pacific specializes in. The CIPP process is an alternative approach to excavation that restores the damaged pipe instead of replacing it entirely. If you’re not familiar with CIPP, or would like to know more before choosing it for your commercial property, here’s how it works.

Getting Started

Cured-in-place piping or CIPP lining is a trenchless repair method that involves placing a resin-filled liner into the existing pipe. In order to be able to do this, the affected pipe must be stable. For this reason, the first step in the CIPP process is to inspect the pipe. We do this with a non-intrusive camera inspection that produces real-time images.

Restoring the Pipe from the Inside

Once we know what’s going on inside the target pipe, the next step is to clean it and get it ready for the insertion of the liner. This part of the epoxy pipe lining process involves applying the coating and allowing it to cure within the pipe. The resin material usually cures within several hours, although it may take longer for more extensive CIPP repairs.

Confirming Everything Is All Set

Lastly, a final inspection is performed to make sure the host pipe is smooth, free of flaws, and ready to serve you well for many years. The coating we use is highly durable, which also reduces the risk of future issues with structural damage and tree roots. The CIPP method is versatile and also has cast iron pipe lining applications.
