Home / Types of Pipe Lining and What You Need to Know


If you need a plumber in Riverside for any kind of plumbing problem, you may be thinking you are in for a messy and disruptive experience. Not necessarily. We are among the few pipe lining companies in Riverside, CA, that offer cured in place pipe (CIPP) services to get your plumbing in working order quickly without mess. We are experts at trenchless plumbing repairs for residential and commercial buildings in Riverside and the surrounding areas. We offer four types of pipe lining:

  • Cured-in-place is the most popular and the one we use most often
  • Pull-in-place requires two holes and the liner is pulled into place
  • Pipe-bursting breaks apart the old pipe, so a new pipe can be inserted
  • Coating the inside of the pipe by spraying a thick epoxy coating on the inside of the existing, damaged pipe

What is CIPP?

CIPP pipe lining in Riverside, CA, is also called trenchless plumbing, which requires no digging up your garden or driveway. We provide cast iron pipe lining and sewer pipe lining. The process involves a textile liner tube that is combined with liquid resin. The saturated liner is inserted into the damaged pipe and cures to a hard state inside the pipe. We then pull the liner out and the resin creates a smooth, seamless new pipe that is strong and covers any leaks. We custom make our liners to be suitable for the shape of any pipe.

What Does Trenchless Mean?

In the past, when your sewer line or other parts of your plumbing leaked, it was necessary to dig up the pipe to get a visual to fix it. This may mean digging a long trench through your front or backyard to find the problem. Trenchless allows us to fix your leaks without digging long trenches. We can dig in one spot and view the length of the damaged pipe with a tiny camera. We can see where the leak is and any tree roots growing inside the pipe.

Benefits of CIPP Trenchless Repairs

Digging up the ground to find plumbing problems is a long, labor-intensive process. During this time, your water and toilets will stop functioning. If you have expensive landscaping, it could be ruined and your hardscapes, walkways, and driveways will need to be replaced. It may be unsafe for children, pets, and visitors to have a dug-up yard. We can avoid all of this with cast iron pipe lining or sewer pipe lining. Other benefits are:

  • We can reline almost any kind of pipe, including concrete, PVC and clay
  • The liner is very strong and may last more than 50 years
  • The work is quick and may be done in less than a day
  • The liner covers cracks, cave-ins and broken pieces for no more leaks
  • CIPP is less expensive than traditional excavating

We are among the top pipe lining companies in Riverside, CA, that have decades of experience in CIPP and trenchless plumbing services. We can provide sewer pipe lining or cast iron pipe lining in a small section of the leaking pipe or throughout your whole plumbing system. We offer 24/7 emergency service, so there is no reason to wait and allow leaks to create water damage to your home or business.
