You Get What You Inspect, Not What You Expect: New Standards for Testing Water Tightness of Cured-In-Place Pipe

electro-scanNew standards for testing the water tightness of CIPP have arrived.  If you plan CIPP projects, write specifications, install liners, or are responsible for reducing infiltration, you won’t want to miss this important webinar.

Participants Learn About:

1. How Municipal Agencies can measure CIPP effectiveness (“water tightness”) in Gallons Per Minute

2. How to specify FELL to certify rehabilitation projects, including allowable Leakage Rates

3. Case Studies

NASTT’s Sealing a Collection System Webinar

NASTTUtilities seeking to reduce Inflow and Infiltration from their wastewater collection systems have learned the hard way that it is not enough just to rehabilitate manholes and publicly-owned sewer pipes: the entire system needs to be restored, especially failing sewer laterals. The webinar will focus on proper techniques and materials for the renewal of lateral services using CIPP technology, with a special emphasis on restoring the connection of the lateral to the mainline sewer in accordance with the industry standard, ASTM F2561.

Industry experts from the NASTT membership will be presenting this complimentary webinar:
Larry Kiest, Jr., LMK Technologies, LLC
Jeff Maier, C&L Water Solutions, Inc. (Moderator)

Best Value Engineered Design for a Sealed CIPP Collection System

LMKThere are several requirements for a successful rehabilitation project. First it is necessary to seal the entire collection system. Case study after case study has shown that repair/replacement of only main lines results in less than 50% of the infiltration removal. Manholes, and most importantly sewer laterals that connect businesses and homes to the main pipes, also need to be rehabilitated. Second, the collection system needs to be sealed and as watertight as possible. Third, the project must be sustainable, capable of performing over the long term, for the next 50-100 years.

Larry Kiest, President, Founder and Chief Technical Officer and Rick Gage, Vice President of Sales discusses: The Challenges • The Trenchless Process • The Ultimate Long-Term Solution

SIPP – Systemic Faults & Next Level Solutions to Survive Pressure Pipe Failure

SippTechThis webinar will identify and explore lining faults that are systemic to the SIPP (Sprayed in Place Pipe) industry. The presenters will demonstrate how these lining faults prohibit most all current SIPP lining materials from surviving host pipe failure in pressure pipe systems, as well as to why some of these faults reduce hydraulic capacity.

This webinar will then focus on next level engineered solutions for preventing these faults to provide a fully structural SIPP or Class IV lining system with significantly increased hydraulic capacity in any pipe diameter pressurized system.

Manhole Rehabilitation: Understanding Why Hybrid Epoxies are Replacing Calcium Aluminate

CaldlinerManhole protection and rehabilitation has traditionally included either cementitious liners (particularly calcium aluminate and pure fused calcium aluminate) or epoxies for severe conditions resulting from H2S. These options have forced owners to either spend more money on costly, complex, specialized epoxy systems to improve performance or settle for the sporadic performance of the less expensive cementitious liners.

Seven Critical Design & Construction Considerations for Relining a Drainage Structure

ContechAn accurate condition assessment of the existing structure helps determine what will fit inside and also helps determine how urgent the situation is. Knowing the age and performance history of the structure is helpful too. Inside access is critical – looking at a structure from the ends or from the outside of a manhole will not give you the whole picture.

Direct Relationship Between Transients and Wire Breaks


The webinar will address the issue that transient activity within water pipelines causes wire breaks in pre-stressed concrete cylinder pipelines (PCCP). The seminar will then go on to discuss how the cause of the transients can be determined and how, by avoiding the transients, owners can reduce wire breaks and reduce the risk of pipeline failure.
