Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! And for a fraction of the cost! Most plastic and PVC pipe used today has a life expectancy of approximately 50 years – you get the same life expectancy from today’s pipe lining products. Specific applications and products vary depending on use and conditions in either case, but as a general rule, you can expect the same life span for a pipe lining project as you can from a new installation.

The fact of the matter is that ALL rehabilitation solutions have inherent strengths and limitations. The cost of these trenchless technology pipe lining systems can vary greatly depending on each application. Gemini Pipeline Rehabilitation Solutions, LLC are pipe restoration experts and have experience with a multitude of pipe lining products, installation methods & technologies.

The different types of pipe lining products include CIPP (Cured-In-Place-Pipe), Pipe Bursting, SIPP (Spray-In-Place), Sliplining, and Compressed Fit or Swagelining.

CIPP involves inserting a resin-saturated felt tub in the host pipe. After the tube has been installed inside the existing pipeline, it is then pressurized and cured. Learn more »

Pipe Bursting involves using a bursting tool attached to the front of new pipe that is pulled through and simultaneously breaks apart the existing host pipe. Learn more about Pipe Bursting »

SIPP (Spray-In-Place) pipe lining involves spraying a coating onto the inside wall of the host pipe.

Sliplining involves installing a smaller diameter liner pipe inside a large diameter host pipe. Types of liner pipe materials include HDPE, PVC, FRP, nylons, composite piping, fire hose style liners, steel, and more depending on operational requirements & budget. Learn more about Sliplining »

Compressed Fit or Swagelining involves radially compressing liner pipe that has a diameter equal to or larger than the inside diameter of the host pipe with a static die or roller reduction box. While the liner is compressed, it is pulled through the host pipe. Note: HDPE is the most common material but Nylons and other materials are available for high temperature applications.
