Why Trenchless Solutions Make Sense for Orangeburg Pipes

Schedule Online

If your home is constructed between the mid-40s to the early 70s, chances are your plumbing system still uses Orangeburg pipes, which are made from tar and wood pulp. If this is the case, be sure to reach out to leading pipe lining companies like Zippity Split Plumbing for an in-depth inspection. 

While these pipes withstand corrosion and last for up to 50 years, they may fail as early as 30 years. That is because of their substandard waterproofing properties, leading to degradation along the way. Fortunately, an eco-friendly solution known as trenchless pipe lining in Scottsdale, AZ, can restore them to like-new condition. Read on as we share insight on how this can benefit Orangeburg pipes.

The Process

Before trenchless pipe coating, we will first assess the condition of your sewer lines using an advanced camera. Because Orangeburg pipes aren’t as durable as they are said to be, we need to see the extent of damage and determine if they are suitable for trenchless solutions.

Once the camera inspection is done, we will proceed with CIPP pipe lining. We will carefully insert an epoxy-filled flexible liner into your Orangeburg pipes. The liner will then cure and harden, creating a robust pipe that can last for several years.

The Advantages

Sewer pipe lining offers a less invasive approach than conventional and resource-intensive excavation. Using this technique, we can perform the rehabilitation process underground through a single access point, leaving your yard and landscaping intact. Thus, it’s a more efficient, environmentally friendly, and cost-effective solution.

If you’re experiencing frequent issues with your old Orangeburg pipes, seek help from the professionals at Zippity Split Plumbing immediately. We ensure a smooth-sailing pipe rehabilitation process by using modern methods like trenchless pipe bursting.
