Repiping VS Perma-Liner
There’s a HUGE difference between the two…which could mean thousands of dollars!
Never heard of it? Read on to find out what the differences between repiping and perma-lining are and how it could help transform your next project.
What is Perma-Liner?
Perma-Liner is a trenchless pipelining system. This state-of-the-art repair system offers the most cost-effective solution to repairing broken and damaged pipes and sewage lines. Perma-Liner’s system is able to restore buried pipelines to better than new conditions in a matter of a few hours (that’s right, just a few hours, not days).
The best part? All of this can be done without digging up and destroying your landscape, asphalt, or excavating…meaning that it can potentially save you thousands of dollars.
What’s the Process?
Cummings Plumbing Heating and Cooling continues to search for cost-effective ways to service our clients. We know and understand that you work hard for your money and believe that we should provide you with solutions that are going to exceed your expectations.
Perma-Liner has been available since 1999; however, due to the cost associated with investing in the technology and equipment, very few plumbers provide service. In fact, we are proud to be one of just three companies in the entire state of Arizona that offers Perma-Liner solutions to our customers. That’s right, there are only three companies that currently offer this state-of-the-art technology that has a cost-savings of thousands to its customers.
So what can you expect?
- When you call us, we’ll send one of our Perma-Liner trained technicians out to your home to create a scope of work and give you a quote for the cost to do the job.
- Once you approve the quote, we’ll schedule an appointment that works for both parties.
- On the day of your appointment, our team shows up with our Perma-Liner trailer and equipment (the trailer is about 23′ in size – quite impressive). Once we get the equipment positioned, we start the process.
- The CIPP (Cured In Place Pipe) process starts with scoping out the line with a high definition camera. This is where we look for any obstructions like roots, debris, build-up, etc. We make note of all of this so that we can proceed with the next step.
- The next step is to bore out all of the obstructions and make the pipe look as nice as possible. This helps to ensure that when we put in the Perma-Liner, everything will cure properly.
- The pipe is then measured and fitted for the lining.
- Our technicians will prepare the lining and resin for installtion. Once the lining has been prepared, it is then inserted into place.
- A steam cure process then takes place to solidify the lining and bond it to the existing pipes.
- After everything is said and done, the equipment is removed and the pipes are scoped one final time to ensure that everything looks correct.
Just like that, you have practically brand new pipes in a matter of hours. What a difference it’ll make to your home’s plumbing.
When it comes to deciding on whether to repipe or use Perma-Liner, the choice is pretty obvious.
- Permit is likely required for repiping
- Must excavate and dig up existing pipe
- Disturbance of current landscaping/asphalt/driveway
- Process typically takes 4-5 days
- More expensive because extra equipment needed (like digging cranes)
- Eyesore after project completed
- No permit required since no pipes are being replaced
- No excavating/digging required – if any, it will be very minimal
- No disturbance of current landscaping/asphalt/driveway
- Entire process takes about 4-6 hours
- Jobs are customized to needs of customer (pipes can be perma-lined in small sections or the entire pipe – depending on need)
- Location is not disturbed and left pretty much the same as before the project started
