What is a Municipal CIPP?
A municipal CIPP, or a cured in place pipe, is a type of trenchless pipe repair that is used to fix damaged or compromised portions of a municipal pipe. Municipal CIPPs can be installed for several different types of pipes that range in diameter from some of the smallest to the largest, and the technology is compatible with many different types of materials. The trenchless technology allows for the structures above the surface such as sidewalks, roads, and landscaping to remain in place while the sewer is repaired, which is a distinct advantage in municipal areas.
The CIPP is installed on the specific area that needs a repair
One of the main reasons why municipal CIPPs are commonly used for municipal sewer repairs is the fact that they are very specific. They are installed only on the specific portions of the sewer line that need a repair, while the rest of the pipe can be left alone. This results in significant cost savings, and in many cases this type of repair is preferable, because the majority of the sewer line may be intact. Other repair methods may be necessary if larger portions of the pipe are damaged or need to be replaced for any reason.
Municipal CIPP installations result in minimal ground disruption
In many municipal area it is essential to avoid traffic disruption as much as possible. This is essential for the safety of the public and to ensure that business can continue as usual while the repair is being made. Municipal CIPP installation sites are much smaller than traditional pipe repair sites which require massive excavations in some cases. This allows CIPP projects to be finished much faster than traditional pipe repairs, and labor costs are significantly reduced while the speed at which the project is finished greatly increases.
