CIPP is a method that can be used to rehabilitate existing pipes such as sanitary sewers, storm drains, and pressure pipes.
The method can be used to line circular pipe and a variety of noncircular pipe such as egg shapes, ovoids, and box culverts. In this post we cover how CIPP works, liner materials, installation methods, and cost benefits.

It's doing millions of dollars worth of damage each year and the problem does not seem to be going away anytime soon.
As cities grow and expand, the flow to wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), also known as publicly owned treatment works (POTWs), increases. Many times, if preventative measures aren’t taken, the WWTPs can reach and exceed their capacity. What happens then?
When a treatment plant reaches or approaches 90% of it’s hydraulic or organic design capacity, Rule 327 IAC 4-1-3 states that IDEM will notify the operator that a Sewer Connection Ban may be necessary. The Town of Greentown, Indiana experienced these issues during the past decade. Town officials engaged with Wessler to make major improvements to their collection and waste treatment systems.
6 Steps to Performing a Smoke Test
As Benjamin Franklin is famous for saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” The health of your sanitary sewer system is similar to our personal health. We take measures to stay healthy by getting a flu shot, going to the doctor for an annual checkup, eating well-balanced meals, and exercising 30 minutes daily. We hope by being proactive with our health maintenance, we will prevent illness. The same is true for your sewer system. If you maintain your sewers, you can minimize costly repairs.
