Certain preparations must be made in order for the renovation of plumbing by using the Repiper method to be effective, secure and of good quality.
The buildings’ plumbing is first inspected by using a video camera to analyse its remaining service life and the condition of the system. By analysing the video, an assessment can be made to conclude whether further measures are required or not.
In those cases where sliplining will be implemented, planning begins on how the work will progress. The goal of the work planning is to schedule the work, based on the prerequisites of the object, so that it can progress smoothly, quickly and with minimal disruption to the tenants.
Cleaning the buildings’ plumbing
During the lifespan of a buildings’ plumbing, deposits get stuck on the insides of the pipes. Prior to sliplining, buildings’ entire plumbing are being cleaned.
Preparations of the workplace
Before beginning the sliplining, it is important to prepare the workplace. This means having access to electricity, water and air, and to make sure that the work areas are covered with protective material and tools and machinery are in place.
Get the linings ready
The curing plastic used in the process consists of two components: one resin component and a hardener. When the two components are mixed an irreversible chemical process begins that hardens the plastic.
The felt-reinforced flexible lining is then soaked with the ready-to-use curing plastic before it is set to be installed in the buildings’ existing, old plumbing.
