Commercial Plumbing: What is Pipe Coating?
When dealing with commercial plumbing, it is important to know what pipe coating and pipelining is. Commercial plumbing is typically done on a larger scale because it requires a bigger space than that of a traditional home.
Pipe coating and pipelining are two important parts of installing or maintaining plumbing within a commercial space. If you’re interested in learning more about this process, then you may find this information to be helpful. We address what each is, how it works and the importance.
Commercial plumbing: pipe coating and lining
Plumbing within a commercial space involves a lot more work than a traditional home would. This is typically due to the size and capacity of the space. Both pipe coating and lining would then also require more work to install.
What is pipe coating?
Simply put, pipe coating is the process of restoring drain and sewer lines. It is known to be safe, effective, green and quick! A special plumbing resin is applied to the interiors of the lines through the use of a special rotating plumbing brush. The brush will essentially paint the interior lines in order to coat the entire thing.
The resin that is applied to the interior pipes will eventually harden and turn into a coating. This coating is referred to as a pipe within a pipe because the resin hardens and adds another layer of protection inside.
What does the pipe coating process involve?
The plumbers will do a video inspection of the pipes to prepare for what they’re dealing with. Some commercial spaces require a lot more coating than normal, just based on their size. The video inspection will allow the plumbers to determine how much coating is necessary.
After the inspection, a thorough cleaning of the pipelines must take place so that the coating resin will be effective. The cleaning also allows for the removal of any blockages or obstructions.
Why have pipes coated?
When dealing with a commercial space, most people consider quick and efficient plumbing options because they have more room to cover. With pipe coating, there isn’t a need for replacements because the new resin coating will act as a brand new interior.
It is important for drain and sewer lines to remain clean so that there aren’t clogs, bursts or other plumbing issues. Over time, pipe lines can get old and cause problems, but with routine pipe coatings, this is less likely to happen.
