• No destruction to your landscape and very little disruption of your normal routine.

  • Significant cost savings over other methods such as sewer replacement.

  • CIPP restores structural integrity, prevents root intrusion and increases flow capacity.

  • The Trenchless Process is warranted for the as long as you own your home.

Trenchless technology has created an alternative to sewer drain replacement commonly referred to as Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP). CIPP is where a pipe is created “within the existing pipe” with special epoxy resins creating the structural strength of new pipes without damage to structures, floors, hardscape, or landscaping. The process has been in use now for over 25 years. There are two primary types of applications, the ‘pull-in-place’ (PIP) method and the ’inversion’ method. Fletchers specializes, in the ‘pull-in-place’ (PIP) method, where the liner is pulled into position where need, filled with epoxy, cured into place and then the job is complete. The greatest advantage to this method, versus inversion, is that Fletcher’s can structurally epoxy line multiple angles and provides the option of only lining the area in need of repair. Fletcher’s does NOT have to line entire length of the pipe from the point of entry to the point or needed repair which means significant cost savings and flexibility.

The other most common method of CIP lining is Inversion, which is an alternate, less innovative technique, where the liner itself rolls out from the point of entry as it is filled with water, air or steam and once cured-in-place, the end is trimmer to allow for flow.

The Trenchless process consists of three steps. First the lines are evaluated with sewer cameras to determine what’s needed to resolve the problem. Next lines are cleaned and then the liner is pulled into place. The end result is the creation of a smooth and seamless ‘pipe within a pipe.’ However, the newer pipe is better. Roots cannot penetrate the new “jointless” pipe. Calcification can no longer occur because the deposits will not adhere to the inner walls of the new epoxy barrier-lined pipe. Best of all, the whole process is done above ground, which means landscape, hardscape, and floors remain undisturbed.

Millions of linear feet of drain lines have been saved using the pull-in-place process. Fletcher’s installers have the experience and advanced technical knowledge to meet your specific needs, regardless of the depth of the pipe or corrosive nature of the environment.
