Large-diameter pipes are essential for various industries and infrastructure projects such as water supply, sewage systems, and oil and gas transportation, among other things. Atlantic Pipe Services offers highly reliable CIPP pipe lining and other related services, including storm pipe inspection in Orlando, FL.

Our sewer pipe inspection and pipe lining team is often called in to address various issues concerning industrial pipes. In our experience, these are the most common issues that large-diameter pipes come across.

Pipe Misalignment

Improper installation, ground shifting, or temperature fluctuations can cause large-diameter pipes to become misaligned. Misalignment can lead to uneven stress distribution, leaks, and structural instability. Sewer pipe repair and proper installation techniques achieved with the help of laser profiling, including expansion joints and careful alignment, can help mitigate this issue.


Corrosion is a significant concern for large-diameter pipes, especially those that transport water or corrosive substances. Over time, exposure to moisture, chemicals, and other environmental factors can lead to corrosion, weakening the pipe walls and potentially causing leaks or bursts. Our storm drain maintenance technicians perform regular inspections, protective coatings, and other measures that can help mitigate corrosion-related problems.

Pipe Blockages

Blockages can occur due to the accumulation of debris, sediment, or foreign objects. These blockages can impede the flow of fluids or wastewater, leading to reduced capacity and system inefficiencies. Regular maintenance, including pipe cleaning and flushing procedures, can help prevent and remove blockages.

Leaks and Breaks

Large-diameter pipes may experience leaks or breaks due to various factors such as external damage, high water pressure, ground movement, or aging. Leaks can result in water loss, reduced system efficiency, and environmental damage. Breaks can lead to major disruptions, flooding, and costly repairs. Early detection through monitoring systems and routine inspections can help promptly prevent and address these issues.

Addressing these issues requires a combination of preventive measures, regular maintenance, and prompt repairs. Atlantic Pipe Services can help. Contact us today for an appointment.
