Instructions for installing a Spartan Patch Complete pipe patch kit are below. You can also watch the Installation Video for a step by step guide. Please read ALL instructions before beginning.


Step 1: Inspection and Preparation

    • Inspect the damaged area with a sewer camera
    • Clean the pipe with sewer cleaning tools to remove roots, debris or other objects that could prevent proper installation
    • Inspect a second time to verify that pipe is clean


Step 2: Measure the Repair

    • Insert camera into pipe and position the camera head at the center of the damaged area
    • Mark camera cable with tape at the pipe entry point


Step 3: Prepare the Packer for Test Install

    • Slide a protective sleeve over the packer, ensuring the packer and sleeve lay flat with the folded edges aligned
    • Securely tape the protective sleeve to the leading end of the packer. DO NOT tape to the air fitting end
    • Connect the packer to the flexible push hose using the push lock fitting until you feel it connect
    • Secure the fitting with lock clip and tape the connection to prevent unintentional disconnection
    • Tie a knot and tape the pull rope to the packer under the protective sleeve on the air fitting end
    • Confirm rope is securely attached


Step 4: Transfer the Measurement

    • Position the camera head at the center of the packer
    • Transfer the tape mark from the camera cable to the push hose


Step 5: Perform a Test Run

    • Twist 6 wire ties around packer and protective sleeve, squeezing packer tight with each tie
    • Trim excess wire ties to ½ inch
    • DO NOT install fiberglass onto the packer at this time
    • Insert packer assembly to the point of repair using tape mark as a guide. DO NOT inflate
    • Remove assembly and check for damage to sleeve or packer


Step 6: Replace the Protective Sleeve

    • Remove protective sleeve and ties from packer
    • Replace protective sleeve as outlined in Step 3


Step 7: Assemble Packer & Components

    • Attach regulator assembly to push hose
    • Turn regulator dial counterclockwise until you feel it stop. This prevents air from prematurely inflating packer


Step 8: Test the Equipment

    • Using regulator, slowly inflate the packer in correct size test pipe to 5 PSI
    • Wait 5 minutes and check for air leaks in packer or any connections
    • Deflate packer using vacuum assembly
    • Ensure packer and sleeve edges are aligned and flat
    • Disconnect regulator from push hose and set aside


Step 9: Prepare the Patch

    • Lay out plastic work surface, packer, fiberglass patch and resin bag on a flat surface
    • Remove resin from outer bag and remove clip to remove aluminum pouch
    • Mix resin thoroughly until it’s a consistent peanut butter-like color (Note start time)
    • Pour half the resin on fiberglass patch and spread with spatula until fully saturated
    • Flip fiberglass and repeat on second side
    • Lightly scrape off excess resin with spatula
    • NOTE: Depending on the size of the repair, you may not use the entire bag of resin


Step 10: Load the Packer

    • Insert packer into fiberglass and center patch on the packer
    • Secure patch tightly with wire ties, using 4-5 equally spaced on the patch and 2 on both ends of packer. Trim excess to ½ inch


Step 11: Inflate the Packer

    • Insert packer assembly into the pipe using the tape mark from the previously determined measurement
    • Connect regulator and inflate packer to 5 PSI
    • NOTE: The wire ties will release as the packer inflates, allowing the patch to be pressed against the inner surface of the pipe
    • Allow for sufficient cure time as instructed on cure chart
    • Monitor gauge throughout the curing process for proper air pressure


Step 12: Deflate the Packer

    • Use vacuum assembly to deflate the packer after the patch has fully cured
    • Remove the packer using the pull rope. DO NOT use push hose
    • Once packer is removed, inspect the repair with your sewer camera

Your Spartan Patch Complete pipe patch is done!


  • Installer must examine and determine whether the pipe is structurally sound for this product. Consult factory if necessary.
  • The resin used in this system is ambient cure and is greatly affected by temperature. Store in a cool place.
  • Working and curing time will be affected by temperature. Mixing temperature recommended at 70°F. The warmer the resin the less working and curing time! The colder the resin the more working and curing time.
  • Ensure that the packer is protected in accordance with the installation instructions before wrapping the resin-impregnated patch around the packer.
  • If the damaged pipe is not cleaned of sharp edges the packer could be punctured.
  • This is a tested and proven system. Use ONLY Spartan Patch System Components.
