CIPP as a Preventative Measure for Commercial Pipes

Many times, we don’t think to take care of a problem until it’s too late. This can be especially true when it comes to pipes. New pipes are made from smarter materials that withstand conditions much better than before. However, if you own an older building, the pipes used were made from materials that wear out over time. But the good news is that you don’t have to wait until you notice water pooling or pipes bursting to update the system. Preventative measures can be taken by using CIPP. It’s an easier process than you might imagine.

How CIPP Works

A CIPP, or cured-in-place pipe, is a flexible pipe liner that is both jointless and seamless that acts as a pipe within a pipe. It’s essentially a liner that covers the walls of your existing pipes. This strengthens weak joints and repairs wall damage. It can be used on pipes that are 2 inches in diameter up to 110 inches in diameter.

Stay Open for Business

If an older pipeline bursts, the pipe needs to be replaced. This requires extensive effort generally by digging large trenches and opening walls such as you see in traditional pipe repair methods. This type of repair interrupts the operation of business due to disruption of the usually quiet and safe environment. CIPP, on the other hand, does not require this level of business disruption. This way, the building can undergo its update without closing business temporarily.

CIPP Is More Economical

CIPP is a cost-effective alternative to disruptive traditional pipe repair or replacement. Because it lines your existing system and can be performed without digging trenches, it costs you less in two ways. First, by being a much less invasive and faster process and, second, by allowing you to continue running your business as normal. This way, your business can continue to make money while CIPP provides the most economical solution to your problem.

Have an Inspection Done

An inspection is always performed before CIPP installation. This is done by cameras and laterally launching robots to rigorously inspect your pipe system. It closely inspects any perceived flaws. At Industrial CIPP, we can investigate large and small pipelines. Our cameras allow us to visually show you the current condition of your pipe system. You’ll be able to see for yourself how CIPP lining would prevent compromised pipes from worsening.
