Sewer & drain pipe relining allows for partial sewer replacement without excessive costs of property intrusion or digging in some cases. Fix your sewer line before the problem gets worse.
Pipe Resin Relining Method - Pipe Patch
The increasing rate of sanitary and storm sewer deterioration requires an efficient and cost-effective rehabilitation solution. PipePatch’s CIPP cured in place point repair trenchless technology replaces the need for contractors to carefully dig while maneuvering around utilities to unearth the area in need of repair.
By using PipePatch’s CIPP cured in place point repair trenchless technology methods, you are reducing the high costs associated with traditional dig methods of pipe rehabilitation. Costs such as replacing existing surfaces like sidewalks, pavement, landscape, brick pavers, sod and so on.
PipePatch’s CIPP cured in place point repair trenchless technology also eliminates the negative impacts on the daily life and activities of people, businesses, homes and traffic in the area. Undesirable noise and environmental pollution are also eliminated with PipePatch’s CIPP cured in place point repair trenchless technology.
Cured-in-Place Pipe (CIPP). CIPP Cured-In-Place Point Repair is a process where a liner is inserted into a pipe impregnated with a thermosetting resin, which is expanded and cured to form a tight-fitting liner within the host pipe, a pipe within a pipe. The CIPP process incorporates the existing pipeline into the finished product to produce improved performance of the original pipeline. Although cure times vary due to host pipe material and temperatures, PipePatch typically cures in 1 to 3 hours.
Point Repair. Point Repair is a cost saving process of lining only the areas that require repair versus lining the entire length of pipeline. Bellows' point repair system not only saves material costs but also man-hours. Depending on the pipes diameter, PipePatch requires only 1 to 3 technicians to complete a repair and can often times be completed through existing cleanouts or toilet flanges.
Structural Integrity. A PipePatch completed by Bellows restores structural integrity to damaged pipes and exceeds Specification ASTM F1216 for Cured-In-Place-Pipe (CIPP). This Specification requires our materials to be tested for a minimum service life of 50 years. Our fully cured resin serves as a barrier between the damaged pipe and the flow, or as a stand-alone pipe.
Increased Flow Capacity. PipePatch provides the least reduction of all point repair methods used to rehabilitate pipes. When cured, PipePatch is only 1/8 inch thick. The smooth interior of our product with tapered ends typically improves flow capacity. The smooth interior also provides excellent corrosion and abrasion resistance.
Pipe Relining Advantages:
PipePatch Resin. PipePatch point repair utilizes a patented non-hazardous resin that is odor-less, non-flammable and cures in the presence of water. With outstanding bonding properties to most materials and resistance to 63+ chemicals and oils the PipePatch point repair resin requires no special transport or disposal considerations.
PipePatch Liner. The key design consideration in CIPP liner installation is the ability of the cured-in-place pipe to withstand buckling. Buckling occurs due to persistent loads from ground water, soil, and live loads, which causes the pipe to creep reducing its capability to resist external pressures. The resin and lining tube type combine to determine potential buckling. There are generically two types of lining – non-reinforced and reinforced liners. PipePatch point repair uses a fiberglass reinforced liner to avoid any potential buckling.
Time frame of PipePatch repairs. Typically most residential sewer replacement projects take 5 to 7 days to get the new line in place and then an additional 3 - 5 days for all the concrete, slurry, and asphalt to dry and harden. The good news is we've perfected our Pipe Patch method and in some cases we can make the patch repair in under 6 hours. Our field experts will of course review a detailed schedule with you prior to starting the project.

Composting Helps Prevent Drain Clogs
From an environmental standpoint, composting saves global warming gases roughly equivalent to all the CO2 one’s washing machine produces in 10-12 weeks! The rich nutrients that come from composting are for the most part all your plants/garden need. Most hardware stores have compost bins to buy. Or you can go even greener and and less expensive by using a large milk carton with the top cut off. SInce the containers are waxed, they resist microbial growth. | more
