Portland Cured-in-Place Pipe Lining
How Does Cured-in-Place-Pipe Lining Work?
With cured-in-place-pipe lining (CIPP) property owners can say goodbye to costly and time-consuming pipe repairs. CIPP is a simple and effective solution for aging or damaged sewer lines that does not require digging.
What is Pipe Relining?
Pipe relining is a highly effective solution offered by Sewer Renewal Specialists in Portland to address sewer pipe issues without the need for extensive excavation. Our sewer plumbers utilize this innovative method to rehabilitate damaged or deteriorating sewer lines.
In essence, pipe relining involves the insertion of a specialized liner into the existing sewer pipe. This liner is typically made of durable materials such as resin-impregnated fiberglass. Once in place, it is inflated and cured, creating a brand-new pipe within the old one.
This process offers numerous benefits. First and foremost, it eliminates the need for disruptive and costly excavation, minimizing disruption to your property. Additionally, pipe relining is highly durable and resistant to future damage, ensuring long-term sewer system reliability. It's an eco-friendly option that extends the lifespan of your sewer pipes, making it a preferred choice for homeowners and businesses in Portland seeking efficient and sustainable sewer repair solutions.
The CIPP Process
Below you will find how CIPP works and the steps we take to perform this method of repair.
For CIPP, we:
- Clear and clean your current pipes, to ensure there are no obstructions.
- Inspect your current piping with our video technology to locate problem areas.
- Fit a flexible liner to the portion of your pipe that needs attention.
- Completely coat the liner in a resin that, once hardened, will essentially create a new, durable pipe inside of your existing one.
- Slip the coated liner into your pipe.
- Insert what is called a calibration tube, which will press the coated liner against the inside of your pipe.
- Fill the calibration tube with with hot water, which cures the resin.
- Remove the liner, and then re-inspect the pipe to ensure we have fixed the issue.

The primary advantage of CIPP is that we do not have to excavate your damaged pipes. This is why we refer to it as a form of “trenchless” repair. That we do not have to do any substantial underground construction work on your property has a host of benefits.
One of the most significant advantages of CIPP is that it leaves your property intact, cutting down on messes, damage, and any necessary recovery work after the service. Another great advantage of CIPP is its cost effectiveness.
As a trenchless solution, it follows that this technique requires less time and labor, reducing the costs that come with either of those things. CIPP also allows our team to cut down on material expenses, while still delivering results that last. This technology has proven it can stay strong for up to 50 years, making it well worth the investment.
You can eliminate time and hassle by turning to cured-in-place pipes (CIPP) when you have a pipe problem. Unlike traditional pipe replacement or repairs, this option is noninvasive and great for all homes.
What Are the Benefits of Cured-In-Place Pipes?
If you want to know more, then you read our four reasons why you should use cured-in-place pipes:
Alternative to an Expensive Pipe Replacement
One of the best things about cured-in-place pipes is that they’re an alternative to expensive pipe replacements. The installation process itself reduces the cost of labor associated with traditional pipe repair and replacements.
The CIPP method is inexpensive, and you also don’t have to worry about digging into your landscape or spending more money to restore the area.
Eliminate Potential Damage
With traditional pipe replacement, you’re at risk for landscape, structural, or flooring damage in your home. On top of paying for the replacement, you’ll have to pay for costly home repairs.
Fortunately, the CIPP process eliminates potential damage to several areas of your home because it doesn’t necessitate excavation. This means it doesn’t have the same risks as traditional pipe repair.
When you need pipe repairs or replacement, the process of completing everything is long. You must call a specialist, pinpoint the problem, and then deal with the aftermath.
It can be exhausting going through this ordeal. CIPP is more efficient because repairs can happen within a matter of hours, and it’s noninvasive! It results in less overhead, lower costs, and no extra chaos.
Remedy for Most Pipe Damage
Another great thing about CIPP is that it’s a remedy for most pipe damage. Whether it’s age deterioration, corrosion, fracturing, or root intrusion, CIPP can fix the problem!
Additionally, CIPP has a clear advantage over traditional pipe repair. It can handle even the most complex sewer systems without affecting a building’s elements.

What Problems can CIPP Address?
While it cannot solve every problem, there are many reasons to choose CIPP, and it is a great solution in most cases.
CIPP can address problems with pipes that are:
- Corroded: Both low pH and high oxygen levels can corrode pipes and make them susceptible to leaks and bursting. CIPP mitigates any problems with the weakened pipe by inserting what is essentially a completely new pipe inside of it.
- Ruptured: Tree roots frequently rupture sewer and water lines, but CIPP can effectively replace these damaged pipes, mitigating any current and future issues.
- Aging: CIPP can provide you with a complete line replacement without the hassle of excavation.
If you want to capture the advantages of this repair technique, contact our team. Through a thorough examination of your piping, we can determine whether CIPP is right for your property.
