We are excited to announce the new RIDGID Pipe Patching kits. Known for their ingenuity, the developers at RIDGID made their own systems for CIPP (cured-in-place pipe) patching. CIPP is a method used worldwide for repairing sections of broken or damaged pipes. This method is known for its quick return on investment, easy learning curve, effectiveness, and reliability, often lasting for decades. RIDGID provides everything needed to get started.
What is CIPP?
CIPP (cured-in-place pipe) patching is a practice of efficiently repairing damaged lines. It’s practical and cost-effective. CIPP is quickly becoming a frontrunner in trenchless pipe rehabilitation. Here is the process, more or less:
- Using a camera, inspect the damaged pipe, clear away any blockage and clean the line of debris.
- Navigate the Packer with the patch to the patch location, inflate the packer, and let the resin set for its set time.
- After the resin has cured, deflate the packer and remove it.
Work time can be as little as fifteen minutes but requires a minimum of 90 minutes for the resin to set. CIPP can be a profitable standalone business or a significant addition to businesses already offering trenchless rehabilitation.
What systems and kits does RIDGID offer?
RIDGID is offering four starter systems and four patch kits. The difference between a starter system and a patch kit is a starter kit has all the tools needed to perform the patch job, including the packer. While the patch kit includes the resin and the packer sleeves, they are sold separately, but each patch kit corresponds to a starter system based on pipe size. Ridgid’s smallest pipe patch system is for a 2-inch pipe with options up to 6 inches.
There are four different options for starter kits:
- 2-inch Pipe Repair Starter System (74658)
- 3-inch Pipe Repair Starter System (74663)
- 3 to 4-inch Pipe Repair Starter System (74673)
- 4 to 6-inch Pipe Repair Starter System (74683)
