a.   Perform pre-lining video inspection immediately prior to insertion of the wet-out tube.

b.   Insert the wet-out tube through an existing manhole or approved access.

c.   Ensure the tube is continuous between manholes with no joints.  A single tube may span several manhole reaches as allowed by the equipment, properties of the CIPP, and time limits imposed by sewage flows to the host pipe.

d.   Insertion of CIPP indicates acceptance of the host pipe conditions and the suitability of the liner inserted into the host pipe.  Repair any failure of CIPP liner due to inadequate cleaning, groundwater infiltration, or defects in the liner system at no additional cost to the Contracting Authority.

 

2.   Inverted Heat-Cured Liner:

a.   Prior to installation of the liner, place a temperature sensor on the bottom of the host pipe to monitor the temperature of the outside of the liner during the curing process.  Place sensor at the termination point or location most distant from the heat source.

b.   Insert the wet-out tube into the inversion device or standpipe with the impermeable plastic liner on the outside of the tube.

c.   Turn back the end of the liner to form a cuff and secure the cuff to the inversion device or standpipe.

d.   Apply air pressure or hydrostatic head as required to invert the tube into the host pipe with the impermeable liner on the inside of the pipe.

e.   Apply lubricant directly to the tube or pour lubricant into the standpipe during the inversion process to reduce friction.

f.    Maintain and adjust pressure as necessary to invert the tube from the point of insertion to the point of termination and to hold the tube tight against the wall, producing dimples at service connections.

 

3.   Pull-In UV Light Cured Liner:

a.   If CIPP manufacturer recommends the use of a sliding foil for the existing pipe conditions, provide sliding foil which covers the lower third to lower half of the pipe circumference.  Pull sliding foil into place.

b.   Fold the wet-out liner in half and pull into place through an existing manhole.  Monitor pulling speed and tension to avoid exceeding the manufacturer’s recommendations.

c.   Pull 1 to 2 feet of excess liner into the termination manhole.

d.   If the product is sensitive to elongation, measure the overall elongation of the tube after pull-in.  Ensure the elongation of the tube is less than 2% of the overall length of the segment specified by the manufacturer.

e.   Expand the resin-impregnated tube as necessary to hold the tube tight against the wall, producing dimples at service connections.

f.    Perform CCTV inspection of the inflated liner prior to initiating cure.  Confirm alignment and fit prior to initiating cure.  Make corrections as necessary to provide a finished liner free of wrinkles and defects.

 

D.   Curing:

 

1.   Heat Cured:

a.   Maintain consistent pressure, as recommended by the liner manufacturer, until curing is complete.  Increase pressures to compensate for external ground water, if present.

b.   Cure liner using circulating heated water or steam.  Ensure the temperature is sufficient to affect a cure in all sections of the pipe.

c.   Monitor and log the temperature from the sensor placed between the impregnated tube and the host pipe.

d.   Initial cure will occur during heat up and is achieved when exposed portions of the new pipe appear to be hard and sound and the temperature sensor indicates the liner has reached the temperature necessary to effect a cure in the resin.

e.   After initial cure is reached, raise the temperature to post-cure temperatures and hold for a period of time as recommended by the resin manufacturer.

f.    Cool the new pipe to a temperature of 100°F for water cure and 113°F for steam cure before relieving the internal pressure within the section.

 

2.   UV Light Cured:

a.   Automatically record the time, rate of travel of the ultraviolet assembly, pressures, and amount of lamps in operation for each CIPP segment as documentation of correct curing of the fabric tube.

b.   Maintain consistent pressure, as recommended by the liner manufacturer, until curing is complete.

c.   Draw the multi-lamp ultraviolet curing assembly through the pipe at a consistent, predetermined, speed that allows for cross-linking/polymerization of the CIPP resin.

d.   Adjust air pressure during curing as necessary to hold liner tight to the wall.  Maintain pressure by adjustment of the outlet valve.

e.   Remove the temporary internal calibration hose installed by the manufacturer after curing is complete.

 

E.   CIPP End Seal Installation:

 

1.   Hydrophilic Gasket Sleeve:  Install sleeve according to ASTM F 3240, sleeve manufacturer’s published recommendations, and the following:

a.   Do not install sleeve in host pipe more than 24 hours prior to CIPP lining.

b.   Clean the first 6 inches of the main pipe to remove debris and visible grease deposits.

c.   Install metal retaining clip at the leading edge of the sleeve.  The metal clip may be held in place with adhesive tape if desired.

d.   Install the sleeve in the main pipe so the leading edge is no more than 6 inches inside the end of the main pipe as measured from the manhole wall.

e.   If the main pipe has a diameter of 18 inches or larger, utilize anchor screws to hold the sleeve in place.

 

2.   Expansion Band System:  Install system according to manufacturer’s published recommendations and the following:

a.   After installation of the CIPP liner, trim the end of the liner squarely a distance of 2 to 6 inches from the inside face of the manhole.

b.   Clean the exposed face of the main pipe to remove debris and loose resin.

c.   Slide the rubber gasket into the pipe, centering it over the end of the liner.  Ensure one expansion band will seat against the liner and the other will seat against the main pipe.

d.   Expand the expansion bands using a hydraulic expansion tool approved by the band manufacturer.

 

F.   Service Reinstatement:

 

1.   Do not leave sanitary service blocked for more than 24 hours.

 

2.   Reinstate active service lines from within the main with a CCTV camera and remote cutting tool.  Do not reinstate inactive service connections.

 

3.   Machine the opening to full size of the service connection opening area.  Ensure the bottom of the liner opening and service line are flush.

 

4.   Ensure the opening does not have pipe fragments or CIPP fragments that may obstruct flow or snag debris.

 

5.   In the event that service reinstatement results in a liner opening greater than 100% of the service connection opening, or damage to the service connection occurs, install a CIPP service repair to cover the over-cut service connection at no additional cost to the Contracting Authority.

 

6.   If service connection cannot be reinstated remotely and requires excavation complete according to the local plumbing code at no additional cost to Contracting Authority.

 

G.   Inspection:

 

1.   Perform CCTV video inspection of completed CIPP lining, including observance of reinstated service connections.  Provide copy of video inspection to Jurisdiction.

 

2.   Ensure the tube is free of dry spots, lifts (spots cured away from the sewer), and delaminations.  Remove and replace deficient sections.

 

3.   If the CIPP does not fit tight against the original pipe at its termination point, seal the space between the pipes by filling with a resin mixture or hydrophilic seal compatible with the CIPP.

2.   Complete sewer joint and service connection testing and grouting according to the grout supplier and equipment manufacturer¢s published recommendations, ASTM F 2304, and ASTM F 2454.

 

B.   Equipment:

 

1.   Joint Testing Device:  Provide a joint testing device (packer), with means for introducing air under pressure into the void area created by the expanded ends of the packer against the host pipe and a means of continuously measuring, viewing, and recording the static pressure of the test medium and grout within the void area only.  Provide packer constructed in a manner to allow a limited amount of sewage to flow through at all times.

 

2.   Service Connection Testing Device:  Provide a service connection testing device with inflatable mainline end elements and a service line grouting plug that creates a void area extending beyond the main connection.  Use a service line grouting plug sized to match the diameter of the service being grouted with an effective sealing length of at least 18 inches, unless otherwise specified in the contract documents.

 

3.   Pumping Equipment:

a.   Provide positive displacement metering grout pump and hose delivery system capable of supplying a mixed volume of grout at a minimum of 3 gallons per minute and 30 gallons of uninterrupted flow within 10 minutes.

b.   Ensure pump system has sufficient discharge pressure (in excess of system pressure losses and groundwater) to deliver grout volume to fill void space within the gel set time of the chemical grout.

 

4.   Grout Tanks:  When using non-soluble additives, ensure grout tanks have mechanical mixing devices to keep additives in suspension.

 

5.   Measuring Equipment:  Provide means of measuring and recording the volume of mixed grout pumped for each grouted joint or service connection.

 

C.   Control Tests:

 

1.   Prior to beginning testing and grouting, perform a demonstration test in an above ground 8 inch nominal diameter test cylinder suitable to contain the full length of the packer and sustain the void test pressure.  For service line testing, provide an 8 inch test cylinder with 6 inch service tee to receive the lateral bladder.

 

2.   Equip the test cylinder with a pressure gauge to monitor internal pressure and a release valve to exercise a controlled release of pressurized air from the void area to test the packer under both sound and leaking conditions.

a.   With the void release valve closed, inflate the packer and air test the void at 7 to 10 psi.  Ensure the observed void pressure at the test cylinder pressure gauge is within + 1/2 psi of the test monitoring equipment.

b.   Crack open the release valve to simulate a small leak.  Ensure the pressure drop of the cylinder gauge is within + 1/2 psi of the test monitoring equipment.

 

2.   After entering each pipeline segment, but prior to commencement of joint testing, position the packer on a section of sound and clean sewer between two consecutive pipe joints and perform a pressure test.  Pressurize packer to between 7 and 10 psi and hold for a period of 15 seconds with a pressure drop of less than 1.0 psi.  Deflate packer and ensure that void pressure monitoring equipment drops + 1/2 psi of initial reading.

 

3.   If any of the control tests are unsuccessful, clean equipment of excess grout or make necessary repairs and retest.

 

D.   Sewer Main Joint Pressure Testing:

 

1.   Test joints at a target pressure equal to 1/2 psi per vertical foot of pipe depth plus 2 psi (not exceeding 10 psi).

 

2.   Position the packer within the pipe so the packer straddles the pipe joint to be tested.  Verify location via CCTV monitoring.

 

3.   Expand the packer ends to isolate the joint from the remainder of the pipe and to create a void area between the pipe joint and testing device.

 

4.   Pump air into void space until the pressure reaches the required test pressure.

 

5.   Stop the flow of air into the void space and observe the void pressure for 15 seconds.

 

6.   If the pressure is maintained with a drop of less than 1 psi, the joint will be considered as having passed the test.

 

7.   If the pressure drops more than 1 psi during the test period, the joint will be considered as having failed and sealing will be required.

 

8.   Deflate packer and verify the void pressure monitor drops to within + 1/2 psi of 0 psi.  Clean equipment if pressure fails to return to 0 psi.

 

E.   Service Line Pressure Testing:

 

1.   Test service lines at a target pressure equal to 1/2 psi per vertical foot of pipe depth plus 2 psi (not exceeding 10 psi).

 

2.   Position the testing device within the line segment to straddle the service connection.  Verify location via CCTV.

 

3.   Align the service bladder with the service connection.

 

4.   Apply air pressure to invert or inflate the bladder from the mainline assembly into the service pipe.

 

5.   Expand the packer ends to isolate the section of the service connection to be tested.

 

6.   Introduce air into the void area until a pressure equal to or up to 10% greater than the required test pressure is observed.

 

7.   Stop the flow of air into the void space and observe the void pressure for 15 seconds.

 

8.   If the pressure is maintained, with a pressure drop of less than 2 psi, the connection will be considered as having passed the test.

 

9.   If the pressure drops more than 2 psi during the test period, the connection will be considered as having failed and sealing will be required.

 

10.  Deflate packer and bladder and verify the void pressure monitor drops to within + 1/2 psi of 0 psi.  Clean equipment if pressure fails to return to 0 psi.

 

F.   Sewer Main Joint Sealing by Injection Grouting:  Perform joint sealing according to ASTM F 2304, equipment manufacturer, grout supplier, and the following:

 

1.   Position packer over the faulty joint and expand packer ends, isolating the joint with a tight seal.

 

2.   Pump two-part chemical sealant material into the ratio specified by the grout supplier.

 

3.   Continue to pump grout, in stages if necessary, until “refusal” is achieved.

a.   Refusal indicates the grout has flowed throughout the void, into the surrounding soil, forming a cohesive seal stopping further flow of grout.

b.   Under pumping conditions, void pressure will slowly rise as grout is forced into the surrounding soil and begins to set.  When void pressure spikes an additional 8 psi or more in a short pumping period of 1 to 5 seconds, the point of refusal is achieved.

c.   If a quantity of grout equal to 1/2 gallon per inch diameter of pipe size is pumped without reaching the point of refusal, staging may be required.  Staging is accomplished by repetitive cycles of pumping and curing until refusal is achieved.  Notify Engineer for approval before staging is attempted.

d.   If joint cannot be sealed by staging, abandon sealing operations at that joint and notify Engineer.

 

4.   Upon reaching refusal, stop grout pumps and allow grout to cure for 30 to 40 seconds.

 

5.   Deflate packer to break away the ring of gel formed in the void and move at least one packer length away from the joint in either direction.

 

6.   Ensure pressure gauge reads zero pressure + 1/2 psi.  If gauge does not return to zero clean equipment.

 

7.   Reposition packer over joint and retest at a pressure equal to the initial test pressure.

 

8.   If joint fails pressure test, repeat grouting and pressure testing procedure until the joint is sealed or Engineer determines grout consumption is too high and continued attempts to seal joint are abandoned.

 

9.   Remove residual sealing materials that extend into the pipe or restrict the flow.  Ensure sealed joint surfaces are left flush with existing pipe surface.  Remove residual grout material from manhole; do not allow grout to be flushed down the sewer.

 

G.   Service Connection Sealing by Injection Grouting:  Perform service sealing according to ASTM F 2454, equipment manufacturer, grout supplier, and the following requirements.

 

1.   Pump two-part chemical sealant material at the ratio specified by the grout supplier.

 

2.   Continue to pump grout, in stages if necessary, until refusal is achieved.

a.   Under initial pumping conditions, the void pressure will slowly rise to a range of approximately 2 to 4 psi.

b.   Continue pumping until there is a sudden increase to over 8 psi in a few seconds, indicating refusal.

c.   If a quantity of grout equal to 1 gallon per foot of service line bladder plus 3 gallons is pumped without reaching the point of refusal, staging may be required.

d.   Stage grouting by pumping additional grout equivalent to 1 gallon plus 0.25 gallons per foot of bladder, waiting 1 full minute and retesting.  Do not exceed two stages unless approved by Engineer

 

3.   Upon reaching refusal, stop grout pumps and allow grout to cure for 1 full minute.

 

4.   Deflate service packer, re-inflate, and repeat service line pressure testing.

 

5.   If the service connection test fails, repeat injection grouting and pressure testing procedures until service is sealed or Engineer determines grout consumption is too high and continued attempts to seal service are abandoned.

 

6.   Confirm flow after sealing of each service.  If a grout blockage exists, immediately clear the service of the blockage.

 

7.   A thin film of residual grout inside the service, which does not significantly impede flow, is a normal result of sealing and is not considered a blockage.

 

H.   Inspection and Reporting: Comply with ASTM F 2304 Section 12.9 as noted below.

 

1.   Inspection:

a.   Perform CCTV observation and recording of initial pressure testing, sealing operations (if required), and final pressure testing (if required) for each joint or service.
