What is the Difference Between Epoxy and Structural Pipelining?

Pipelining is one of our most innovative services because it eliminates the need to excavate when making pipe repairs. Usually, only 2 access points need to be created to access the damaged pipes underground. This enables us to solve most drain line issues without tearing up your landscaping or replacing entire pipes. It’s a win for everyone because it saves valuable time and money. Today we’re looking at two pipelining solutions offered by Perma-LinerTM, so read on to learn more.

Epoxy Pipelining
For drain lines without damage, epoxy is a great material for preventing corrosion and leaks. With this eco-friendly method, epoxy is used to coat the inside walls of pipes. This relining is safe, durable and preserves the life of the existing piping. Ideally, the pipe would need to be between 2-30 inches in diameter to be able to accommodate the liner.

Structural Pipelining
With Perma-Liner’s Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) system, a new pipe is essentially created inside the old one. A resin tube is inserted into the damaged pipe and positioned using water or air pressure. It is then cured to form a corrosion-resistant, watertight seal. Again, this method works best in pipes with a diameter of at least 2 inches, but we have applications that can handle pipes larger than 28 inches.

Can You Benefit From Pipelining?
We are always looking for ways to improve wastewater repair methods, and this one is a true homerun. Wind River Environmental is proud to be one of the few companies in the New England area to offer these groundbreaking (or should we say non-groundbreaking) pipelining services. Before paying excavators to do any digging or purchasing expensive drain replacements, let our technicians determine whether you are a candidate for one of these trenchless solutions. Contact Wind River Environmental Today.
