What is pipe relining with sleeves?

At Pepe Núñez, we specialize in trenchless pipe rehabilitation using the continuous lining technique. This revolutionary method not only effectively addresses common piping issues but also provides a less invasive and more sustainable solution. Below, we will break down everything you need to know about this innovative service.

What is continuous lining pipe rehabilitation?
Continuous lining pipe rehabilitation is an advanced process that repairs damaged pipes without the need for trench digging. Using a special sleeve, usually made of fiberglass, this method repairs pipes from the inside, creating a new, durable pipe within the existing one.

What is it used for?
This service is ideal for repairing pipes damaged by corrosion, tree roots, cracks, or displacements. It is particularly useful in densely populated urban areas where excavation can be problematic, as well as in historic buildings where preservation is crucial.

What are the advantages?
Choosing trenchless pipe rehabilitation with continuous lining offers multiple benefits:

  • No Digging Required: Forget about trenches and mess. This method does not require extensive excavation, which means less disruption and a cleaner process.
  • Speed and Efficiency: Rehabilitation is completed in less time compared to traditional methods, resulting in less inconvenience.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: By eliminating the need for trench digging, this method can be more economical than traditional repairs.
  • Durability: The lining used creates a new internal pipe that is resistant to corrosion and roots, ensuring a long-term solution.

What is the process?
The continuous lining rehabilitation process is carried out in four essential steps:

1.Inspection: We perform an initial pipe inspection using a specialized camera to locate and document any issues such as cracks, blockages, or tree roots.

2.Cleaning and Measurements: Pipes are thoroughly cleaned using high-pressure water or mechanical tools such as a milling robot, which removes all types of obstructions like cement or roots.

3.Sleeve Implementation and Placement: The type of sleeve and resin suitable for the specific needs of the pipe are carefully chosen. The sleeve is then impregnated with resin and inserted into the pipe using air pressure, perfectly adapting to the inside of the existing pipe. Finally, depending on the material, the resin is cured and hardened using ultraviolet light, solidifying the sleeve and completing the repair.

Who is this service for?

Continuous lining pipe rehabilitation is ideal for homeowners, property managers, and municipalities seeking an efficient and less invasive solution to repair damaged pipes. Whether dealing with domestic pipe issues or larger sewer systems, this method offers an adaptable and lasting solution.
