Bowman Lateral Reinstatement Cutter

Pipelines wear and tear over time. Sometimes it is due to normal use, other times weather wears it down, such as extra or not enough water. Other times, a tree root may disrupt the line of the pipe. In any case, pipelines do not last forever, and your pipeline may be in need of a fix. If your first thought is the safety of your lawn, then there is no need to worry. There are plenty of trenchless technologies for your piping system that will not tear up your lawn. Minimal holes may be dug, and each system is different. Lateral reinstatement cutting is a form of trenchless technology. But what is it?

CIPP Piping

CIPP piping stands for cured-in-place piping. This type of piping is one of many ways to instill trenchless rehabilitation in already existing pipelines. There are no joints or seams, and it is cured with a pipe inside of the existing pipe, giving it double the protection. CIPP rehabilitating applies to water, sewer, gas, or chemical pipelines.

CIPP lining begins with a polyester tube saturated in resin. It is pulled into the damaged pipe, and is thus more environmentally friendly than digging and completely replacing a pipe. This means less intrusion to the surroundings, and less manpower to make a completely new pipe. The resin is cured with steam to become tight-fitting and without joints itself. Additional seals to the lateral connection are needed in the future for maintenance. This is where the lateral reinstatement comes in.

Lateral Reinstatement

Any CIPP pipe line will need lateral reinstatement eventually. Lateral reinstatement is like a bicycle kickstand; the pipe is still working but the lateral reinstatement gives it balance. A CIPP liner must first be installed, with open lateral sewer connections to help restore services to its previous quality. The lateral reinstatement thus restores services to lateral connections.
