Cured-In-Place-Pipe lining has been in use in the United States for the last four decades. It is an approved and chosen method to rehabilitating cracked, broken and failed sanitary sewer pipes. Lining is less expensive and more efficient than traditional replacement methods. The lining process can be used to rehabilitate virtually any type of pipe including; Clay, Cast Iron, Orangeburg, PVC, ABS, HDPE, Concrete Pipe, etc.
USA Pipe Repair’s Pipe Lining Installation Process
- The damaged pipe is cleaned and inspected.
- A measurement is then taken so the pipe-liner material can be cut to length.
- The 100% epoxy resin is then mixed and poured into the liner material impregnating it.
- The pipe-liner is then loaded into the launching unit.
- Then the pipe-liner is inserted into the pipe through an inversion process that utilizes air pressure.
- This literally turns the pipe-liner material inside out which allows the resin to bond with the host pipe.
- The resin cures within 3 hours.
- The pipe is put back into service.

USA Pipe Repair uses materials that are third party tested and certified by NSF and IAPMO. They also exceed standards and specifications set by ASTM F-1216 which require a minimum design life of 50 years. In addition to this our materials are environmentally safe.
Our pipe-liner materials consist of two layers of flexible needled felt and one layer of scrim reinforcement. The tubular liner material is fabricated to a size that when installed will expand and tightly fit the internal circumference of the original pipe. The outside layer of the tube is coated with a 2mil thick Polyvinyl Chloride finish.
Pipe lining is a versatile, efficient solution for a variety of problems and a variety of pipes. Pipe lining can seal cracks and holes, seal bottomless cast iron, fill missing pieces of pipes, smooth out big off-sets, root damaged pipes, root drain vertical pipes, seal storm drain lines, help prevent infiltration/exfiltration, prevent root intrusions, improve flow capacity, and seal joint connections.
Our process is relatively simple. First, we clean and measure the damaged pipe. A measurement is taken so the pipe-liner material can be cut to length. The epoxy resin we use is mixed and poured into the air bladder liner material, which is then loaded into the launching unit that allows the liner to go smoothly into the pipe. The pipe liner is then inserted into the pipe through an inversion process, which turns the air bladder inside out, plastering the epoxy resin to the inside of the pipe. Because the pipe was cleaned, the epoxy cures smoothly. The epoxy cures within three hours and immediately after curing, the pipe can be put back into service.
This pipe lining service can be completed on residential, commercial, industrial, and municipal properties and buildings. USA Pipe Repair uses materials that are third-party tested and certified by NSF and IAPMO. We exceed standards and specifications set by ASTM F-1216, which require a minimum design life of fifty years. In addition, all of our materials and equipment are environmentally safe.
