Understanding the Pipe Lining Process

Trenchless pipe lining in Wyoming, OH is a fast, affordable way to restore pipes. It’s also a cost-effective solution offered by CME Pipe Lining for customers hoping to avoid conventional excavation work. Below, we explain the pipe lining process from start to finish.


The first step we take with what’s also known as cast iron pipe lining when older cast iron pipes are being re-lined is to inspect the pipe. Video equipment is used to look inside the pipe. We do this in order to:

  • Identify the source of the problem
  • Determine if the pipe is stable enough for lining
  • Check for other flaws and issues


The next step with sewer pipe lining is to clean the pipe. We do this to ensure the epoxy coating that’s applied with the liner will properly adhere to the pipe’s inside surfaces. A common method we use to do the pipe cleaning is hydro jetting, which is done with pressurized water.


Once the pipe has been inspected and cleaned, the actual CIPP pipe lining process can begin. This is when a felt liner is inserted into the pipe with the coating material. An inflatable bladder is used to help the liner properly fit against the pipe’s walls. After the coating has cured, the bladder is deflated and the liner is removed. The existing pipe is then free of flaws and ready to function as intended.
