Plumber’s Choice: Cured-in-Place Pipe Lining

Here at Anta Plumbing, we are pioneers in cured-in-place piping technology. It is our number one choice in wastewater pipe repair, and we frequently recommend cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) repairs for rehabilitation and repair of force mains, storm drains and sanitary sewers. We can install new jointless pipes within your existing pipes without the need for digging trenches.

Toronto plumbers use different names for cured-in-place piping, including CIPP, epoxy sewer lining, trenchless pipe lining and no-dig pipe lining. It doesn’t matter what you call it – the most important thing to know is that CIPP offers a more environmentally friendly option with minimal invasion, and the structural strength of a brand new pipe. It is becoming the number one modern piping solution among plumbers Toronto and all over the world.

Why Toronto Plumbers Suggest Cured-in-Place Piping

Pipes become damaged when tree roots infiltrate the sewer through cracks in search of nutrients and water. At the same time, when left unattended, these roots cause blockages and sewer backups. Your Toronto plumber will suggest installing cured-in-place piping that helps to contain the flow within your pipe, which also prevents external elements from entering through cracks and joints.

CIPP can restore structural integrity to your damaged pipes. Since CIPP has no joints, the flow capacity is also improved. It has a smooth interior which is abrasion resistant.

One of the more affordable methods of sewer repair, your Toronto plumber may recommend it over more conventional methods. Taking into consideration the costs associated to digging trenches, it’s easy to see why plumbers in Toronto and everywhere around the world consider cured-in-place piping the number one solution to sewer issues. There is no trench digging and restoration required, and there is less traffic congestion and social costs.

Plumbers in Toronto Enjoy the Flexibility of CIPP

CIPP is a flexible option, in both the installation method and the curing process. Plumbers in Toronto can pull your new pipe lining in place using water, air or steam.

City of Toronto licensed plumbers use ISO-certified materials and work according to the city’s codes and regulations.

Where do Plumbers Use CIPP?

Epoxy pipe lining can be used to replace underground pipes without causing any disturbances to surface materials on your roads, driveways, landscaping, porches, parking lots, sidewalks, floors or electrical and gas lines.

How Will Your Plumber Install CIPP?

When you call your City of Toronto licensed plumber, he will first evaluate your lines using video sewer inspection equipment in order to see what exactly needs to be done to resolve the issue. Anta Plumbing’s master plumbers will check whether your pipe meets the minimum engineering requirements for epoxy pipe lining.

Once we have established that it can be done, we will clean the sewer thoroughly using our hydro jetting drain cleaning equipment to remove any dirt, grease, mud and tree roots from the pipes.

We will then pull the CIPP in place and perform the epoxy cure with special resins. This creates a seamless, smooth pipe-inside-a-pipe. The newer pipe is the better pipe; roots cannot enter the CIPP jointless pipe. Since deposits cannot adhere to the inner walls of the new pipe, calcification can no longer occur.

The best news is that, in the majority of cases, the entire process is performed below the ground, meaning that your floors, landscape and hardscape remain in tact.

Anta Plumbing are experts in cured-in-place pipe lining and we can help you install new epoxy pipes on both your vertical and horizontal pipes.
