Why CIPP on Vertical Pipes

Utilizing CIPP (cured-in-place piping) in horizontal pipes, is increasingly common. Instead of replacement, CIPP offers rehabilitation of existing pipes. The same benefits for using CIPP with horizontal pipes can be applied to vertical pipes, as well. Use cured-in-place pipes to save time, money, and your building.


Save time

CIPP saves you time on vertical pipe repairs. The curing process can take 4 to 12 hours on average. Some very large pipes may fall outside of this average. Even if a large project exceeds the average, CIPP still represents a significant savings of time. Lining and curing the pipe will be quicker than replacing every pipe. This is especially true of interior pipes that are inside the walls, or deep underground. These pipes would have to be excavated before repairs could begin. Once the pipes were replaced, restoration would further delay the return of business as usual.


Save money

Replacing vertical pipes is often an expensive proposition. However, cured-in-place piping reduces the overall cost of the project. While CIPP may occasionally cost more foot by foot, CIPP doesn’t carry the same associated costs. CIPP for vertical pipes removes the need to open up walls, in order to access the pipes. This allows your business to reopen sooner, as CIPP takes less time to install, than replacing your pipes. Moreover, CIPP is known to last for longer periods of time. Opting to rehabilitate and reline your pipes gives you thirty or more years of fully functional vertical pipes, and cuts down the cost of future repairs. 


Save your building

Replacing corroded and broken pipes can be almost as damaging to your building as leaving them in place. You may be required to open walls to reach pipes, or dig deep trenches to replace pipes that run deep. Trenchless pipe repair technology prevents this necessity. Using CIPP to rehabilitate vertical pipes protects your building from excavation and damage. CIPP is being used on historically protected buildings with increasing frequency, for this very reason. Even if your building isn’t a protected historical sight, you can still preserve it. 

The benefits of CIPP apply not only to horizontal pipes, but vertical pipes, as well. Relining your vertical pipes saves on time, money, and the condition of your building. Reach out for an estimate and Q&A session today.
