PipePatch - CIPP Trenchless Point Repair

PipePatch | An Environmentally Sound Alternative To Underground Pipe Rehabilitation

The Tool For Your Trenchless Toolbox

Source One Environmental’s (S1E) Pipepatch offers a No Dig, trenchless pipe rehabilitation system for small and large pipe diameters up to 72". By creating environmentally sound alternatives, PipePatch is established as the leading trenchless technology for the rehabilitation industry throughout the world.  An alternative to  ‘dig and replace’ methods, the PipePatch product line challenges traditional pipe repair methods as a 'trenchless excavation' that is an efficient, long-lasting solution to repair multiple infiltrations in one day.

PipePatch utilizes the Cured-In-Place-Pipe (CIPP) process to eliminate the need for digging by creating a pipe within a pipe with minimal change to the original diameter. Through this process, not only does our trenchless technology cure the infiltration, but improves the performance of the storm or sewer system.

S1E has established a team of trenchless technology consultants that focus on working with our customers to proactively solve every day infrastructure problems. The entire PipePatch product line is fostered by the standards of exceptional service and material that is guaranteed by S1E.

Sectional Point Repair

Imagine a surgeon inserting a stent into a heart artery. These stents enable weak arteries to continue flowing normally and prevent the heart from future problems. Much like a stent, PipePatch’s proactive approach provides a structural point repair within a pipe. When compared to digging or lining an entire pipe, the PipePatch No Dig system only repairs areas that require rehabilitation—saving time, investments, materials and hours of labor. PipePatch is able to efficiently make multiple repairs, remain environmentally friendly and may only require as little as one factory trained installer by utilizing trenchless technology. As infrastructure constantly requires maintenance, a point repair is the number one solution for structurally rehabilitating pipes, allowing customers to allocate their time, funds and resources elsewhere.

Structural Integrity

PipePatch exceeds the CIPP Specification ASTM F1216 and restores structural integrity to damaged pipes. This Specification requires materials to be tested for a 50-year minimum service life, verifying that PipePatch is long-lasting and effective in ending infiltration. Because PipePatch creates a pipe within a pipe, the fully cured resin and fiberglass serve as a structural barrier between the interior of the pipe and the exterior environmental conditions. Additionally, many PipePatch products meet NSF and ICC-ES-PMG specifications. PipePatch’s trenchless technology has been tested and proven to withstand pressure, extreme conditions, and time to ensure that the pipe is rehabilitated and preforming exceptionally for years to come.

Increased Flow Capacity

Compared to other point repair systems, PipePatch provides the smallest pipe diameter reduction when rehabilitating pipes with trenchless technology. After PipePatch is fully cured, the material is just 1/8” thick--minimally altering the original diameter. PipePatch’s smooth interior and tapered ends typically improves flow capacity and overall performance of the pipeline, along with providing exceptional corrosion and abrasion resistance. Because of its thinness and smooth qualities, the integrity of the pipe is not compromised and can continue to flow normally. 

Training & Consulting

S1E has made a commitment to each customer to deliver quality products and service. Our consultants work hard to pass along their expertise to customers and provide unparalleled access to our team at jobsites.  Although PipePatch can only be installed by factory trained installers, S1E offers free on-site certification to municipalities, contractors, plumbers and more who have purchased the PipePatch System. This training helps our customers understand the installation process and gain the experience to preform PipePatch successfully in the future.

Our commitment does not stop after training and we frequently work with our customers on jobsites. Because of our knowledge of the rehabilitation industry and products, we offer a for-fee consulting service that sends our team to jobsites for successful product troubleshooting and installation for extreme CIPP situations. While we are not the installer, we will provide proactive ideas and solutions to make the job a success.
