Let’s focus on RESINATING LLC and the details of RESINATING’s new Fiberglass Expansion Liners.
To start, check out the TRA Press Release. RESINATING LLC replaced two failing layers of SIPP in a TRA manhole with a RESINATING Fiberglass Expansion Liner. The total SIPP age of the two layers was 7 years.
The photos in the Press Release tell the story. The quotes are testimony to the reality of using RESINATING Fiberglass Expansion Liners versus, in their case, SIPP in manholes. TRA, the Trinity River Authority, handles the collection and treatment of waste water for over 60 cities in Texas including Dallas and Fort Worth and serves millions of people.
RESINATING Fiberglass Expansion Liners are far superior to CIPP and SIPP solutions, any type of hand troweled polymeric material, or any type of slip liner and are certainly better than Trench and Replace.
RESINATING LLC can even rehabilitate most collapsed pipes. Read more about repairing collapsed pipe.
RESINATING Liners are able to strengthen manholes and pipes and seal leaks not only in RCP but also in clay pipes, FRP, PVC, brick or any other type of pipe or manhole.
RESINATING Liners can be made in diameters from 15” to 16’ with sections up to 18’ long.
RESINATING Liners can be fabricated in a broad range of shapes – cylindrical, elliptical, conical, domed, rectangular with squared or rounded corners, flat panels, etc.
RESINATING Liners can rehabilitate manholes and pipes in any shape or size and work around bends as well.
RESINATING Liners can rehabilitate manholes of any depth…80’ as an example, no problem.
Today, municipalities often go to CIPP or SIPP to address the rehabilitation of their pipes and manholes because the upfront price is sometimes lower or because there hasn’t been another option.
The money spent on a CIPP or SIPP option now will more than likely be lost money in a period of years.
CIPP and SIPP liners will likely need to be replaced by Resinating Liners to deal with continuing I&I flow.
The leakage data from Electro Scan’s March 11, 2020 webinar and Electro Scan’s April 16, 2020 press release make three important points. Read more in the CIPP Section of The Better Choice – Resinating Liners page.
- Having scanned 110,000 LF of CIPP liners in 2019, using its Patented low voltage conductivity technology, Electro Scan found over 14,000 leaks…that’s one leak every 7.85’ on average.
- Electro Scan found 84% of pipes had leaks after being lined with CIPP. The average leak was 11 GPM as calculated in the CIPP section of The Better Choice – Resinating Liners page. They also indicated that the leakage rate increased with age.
- That adds up to 10.5 Mil GPD/mile for relatively small average diameter pipe. If treating waste water costs $500/Million Gallons, that’s about $5,000/day. Larger pipes likely have more leaks/leakage.
CIPP is not leakproof…RESINATING Liners are a Better Choice.
Such leakage would not be seen in a pipe or manhole lined with RESINATING Liners. Backed by RESINATING’s 20-Year Warranty, RESINATING LLC will repair or replace any RESINATING Liners with leaks that materially and substantially affect their performance for 20 years after installation. Compare that to other warranties.
Photos of a Resinating Fiberglass Expansion Liner prior to it being inserted into a pipe or manhole and then one after it is bonded to the walls, in this case, in an RCP pipe, are below.
