Curing During Active Infiltration: Which Cure Works Best?

Posted by Jordan Fues on Nov 3, 2021 3:47:41 PM

How Infiltration Affects CIPP Installation

Cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) installation is made more difficult by active infiltration, which occurs when groundwater seeps through cracks, joints or manholes into sewer pipes. New CIPPs should be tight-fitting and jointless to seal off any possible points of entry for infiltration. Unfortunately, CIPP does not eliminate infiltration from entering the existing host pipe. Infiltration is dangerous to the installation process because too much flow can wash the resin off of the new liner and/or prevent the liner from installing correctly. However, the type of cure used for installation can make a difference in the effects of infiltration.

What CIPP Testers Do

Posted by Allison Symonds on Aug 20, 2021 5:55:08 PM

When a pipe rehab crew installs a CIPP liner, they typically do the job in just a few hours, and then move on to the next project. But that’s not the end of the story. CIPP is designed to last for decades, and the wastewater systems that use it need to be confident in its efficacy. In most cases, installers are required to submit a sample of every liner installed for third-party testing. Only once testing is complete and the results are approved and reported is the job really “done.”
