Cleaning and repairing deteriorated water or sewer pipelines helps improve system efficiency and protects both your community and the environment. The task can be daunting and expensive especially when excavation is required.
SUEZ provides an innovative spray in place pipe lining rehabilitation (SIPP) process that scrubs underground pipes clean before applying an epoxy lining for in-situ pipe repair. Designed by Warren Environmental, the 2-part component epoxy material is ANSI/NSF Standard 61 approved for potable water supply. Once cured, the epoxy lining provides long-lasting protection to your sewer or water pipes, which helps reduce the frequency of maintenance and pipe replacement. This no dig pipe repair rehabilitation technology minimizes maintenance costs, and system down-time.
SUEZ’s spray in place pipe rehabilitation process consists of five steps:
Once cured, the spray-applied epoxy pipe lining creates an internal seal that prevents leaks and helps protect against future corrosion and biological buildup in your water main. This extends the pipes’ service life, helps reduce the frequency of maintenance, and increases the flow capacity for greater system efficiency.
SIPP no dig pipe lining repair technology can yield an estimated cost saving of around 20 to 30% when compared to direct replacement - digging up the entire length of the pipe that needs attention and replacing it all. Another benefit that transcends cost: the ability to minimize inconvenience to consumers by relining water pipes rather than digging them up and replacing them.
The SIPP pipe lining repair does not require road or sidewalk tear-ups often associated with water main replacement. With this no dig pipe repair process, it takes approximately 24 hours, to clean, camera, coat and cure a 500 foot section of pipe. Additional time may be needed for the disinfection process dependent upon these requirements. The epoxy pipe lining can cure within a 12-16-hour timeframe.
