When a customer’s sewer line needs restoration, one of their top questions will be about the lifespan of the line after the repair procedure. At Thermoform, we proudly offer long-lasting solutions that provide reliable service for decades.
Let’s take a look at the impressive lifespan of our PVC liners vs. CIPP liners.
Our PVC fold-and-form liners have an impressive lifespan of 50 years. We’ve thoroughly tested our materials and installation processes to guarantee that these products reach their full potential. In a civil engineering study of plumbing systems, researchers who tested the thickness, strength, surface hardness, and crack resistance of different types of pipe liners found that PVC fold-and-form pipe liners can hold up to extreme stresses and have no problem reaching their five-decade service life.
Thorough Testing and Consistent Manufacturing
In our manufacturing facility, we test every batch of PVC and resin before we use it. During the manufacturing process, we keep sampling and testing to make sure that our finished product has the necessary strength, resistance, and hardness to handle extreme environmental conditions. We measure and inspect every PVC fold-and-form liner before we ship it. This allows us to deliver consistent products to your company each time you place an order.
Importance of Correct Installation Technique
Installation technique is a critical factor when it comes to the lifespan of PVC fold and form pipe liners vs. cured in place pipe liners. Our fold-and-form liners don’t require any mixing. This means there’s no risk of over- or under-mixing that could affect the service life of the liner. Even the newest technicians on your team will be able to properly install our liners.
All over the United States, aging plumbing infrastructure means that plumbing contractors and companies are in high demand for sewer line rehabilitation. PVC fold-and-form pipe liners provide an excellent value and many decades of reliable use.
