What is Pipe Lining or CIPP?
Pipe lining (aka pipe relining) is an excavation-free method to repair those corroded pipes without destroying your landscaping. It is using a trenchless process and relining broken or leaking pipes that are underground. Cured-in-place piping (CIPP) is a process of repairing and restoring existing pipes using liquid resin and textile liner. Another popular option is using an epoxy resin, like what we use with Perma-Liner.
Brands We Offer
At Spartan Plumbing, we strive to offer the best products to our customers. For repiping, we offer two specific brands that have proven to be effective options for your home. These include:
Max Liner is a CIPP pipe liner to reline vertical and lateral pipes. It provides a better solution than digging the pipes and replacing them with massive disruption to the yard and home. Max Liner is inserted into your existing pipes so you can repair them without actually replacing them. This means no need to dig into the yard or cut into your walls.
Call (520) 617-1000 or contact our team to see if Max Liner is the right repiping product for your needs.
NuFlow is one of the best choices for trenchless sewer repair. We are pleased to provide this product to help you fix your pipes. It works for both pressurized and non-pressurized systems, making it an option for most types of piping in your home. Using your existing access points, which means no need to dig a trench, we can use NuFlow to repair pipes failing due to copper pinhole leaks, corrosion, structural failure, and even root intrusion.

Pull-in-Place Pipe Lining
Pull-in-place pipelining is a type of relining product that pulls a new pipe liner inside your old pipe. The new liner is water-tight, and it fits directly inside the existing pipe. Before it's installed, the liner is soaked in epoxy to soften it. It is then pulled into place, where it is allowed to cure and harden. You are left with a functional pipe that works just like the old one without leaks and problems.
Small-Diameter Pipe Relining
If your problem pipes have a small diameter, you don't need to worry. CIPP pipe relining can be done on small diameter pipes just like large diameter pipes. You don't need to tear out large sections of your home's wall or floor to access the pipes because our plumbers can reline them regardless of the diameter.
If you have small diameter pipes that have sprung a leak, let our plumbers help with pipe relining. Call (520) 617-1000 to learn more about small-diameter pipe relining service.
Benefits of Pipe Lining
Because this technology is less invasive than trenching, you’ll receive many benefits from this method of pipe restoration. Here are a few of the perks:
- Lower cost: No renting an expensive excavating truck, paying labor for the excavation operator, or replacing your landscaping.
- Time saved: Generally, pipe lining at a home or a small commercial location takes a day rather than disrupting you for days.
- Better than cast iron: The material used is stronger than your old cast iron pipes. In fact, it lasts for up to 50 years!
- Less mess: You won’t be left with a yard to repair when we are done.
- Quieter: Skip the noise of the heavy equipment. The quieter installation is less disruptive to your day.
What’s the Pipe Lining Process?
Because pipe lining is a relatively new technology, we are often asked about how the pipe lining process works. Take a quick look.
1. Conduct a Video Inspection
Before we begin the process, we do a video inspection. Our technician will review the images sent back to him to determine if the pipes are blocked by grease, sludge, tree roots, or any other obstruction.
2. Use Water Jets
We use a high-pressure water jet to flush away any blockages. We cannot insert the liner until the area is free of obstructions.
3. Conduct a Second Video Inspection
After we flush, your technician will double-check to ensure that all obstructions have been blasted away by the high water pressure. This gives us a “clean slate” to work with.
4. Take Measurements
Once the area is clear of debris and the technician has decided that pipe lining is a feasible option, your technician will spend some time doing careful calculations to determine the amount of liner and resin needed and set up to install your new liner.
5. Insert the Liner
We will use special equipment to insert the liner materials into your existing pipes.
6. Cure with Air Pressure
The technician will use air pressure to cure the liner into a hardened, permanent solution to rid you of your pipe corrosion problems. Once the curing process is finished, you are immediately able to use your water system.
5 Signs You Need Sewer Drain Pipe Lining
Not sure if you need sewer drain pipe lining? Here are 5 common symptoms of deteriorating sewer drains:
Sewer Backups or Blockages
Slow draining toilets are often caused by a backup farther down the line. You don’t see the problem, but it’s lurking below.
The smell of sewage is abnormal. It means that you’re about to have big problems. Act fast to prevent huge headaches!
Formation of Mildew
Mildew needs moisture to thrive. A mildew spot on the wall in the vicinity of a pipe indicates moisture buildup.
Water Drains Slowly
If your sinks or showers drain slowly, and you’ve attempted to free the line of hair or soap scum, you may have another underlying issue like a tree root disrupting drainage.
Mice, rats, and insects can gain access to your home in tiny cracks in the sewer pipes. If you’ve been keeping up with regular exterminating but can’t stop the invasion of pests, look to your sewer pipes as a possible weak point.
