Patch Repair Lining for Specific Pipe Repairs
Similar to other forms of Cure-In-Place (CIP) Pipe Lining, Patch Repairs can be used on both residential sewer lines and larger sewer mains to permanently eliminate a variety of recurring problems such as roots, infiltration, and cracks. The difference is a Patch Repair is installed only in small sections of pipe (3-6 feet long) to permanently eliminate issues at that specific location. Thuro uses quality lining material with a life expectancy of 60-100 years.
How does a patch repair work? A resin saturated tube is wrapped around an inflatable bladder and pushed into place inside the existing pipe and then hardens, leaving behind a smooth and durable pipe repair.
Cost Effective Repair Option
Out of all trenchless repair options available, Patch Repairs are the lowest cost and simplest to install. By only applying the repair to the exact location of the problem.
Patch Repair liners don’t just block out roots and water infiltration but also greatly increase the strength of the host pipe. In larger diameter pipe additional layers of fiberglass can be added to add even more strength. This can be required for specific problems such as holes or missing sections of pipe. Installing a Patch Repair liner can add years of life to an existing pipe by adding strength and restoring missing and damaged sections.
Simple, Quick, Permanent
Residential Patch Repairs can often be installed through cleanouts, with zero outside excavation, and can be completed in just a few short hours. In main lines they are installed from the manhole or other line access. CIP Patch Repairs can be used as permanent solutions to recurring blockages, root related backups, and various forms of pipe damage.
