‍I passed a trailer last week that advertised a particular pipe bursting process. No where was the contractors name, just a trenchless process. The graphics depicted the equipment manufacturers process and touted how great their trenchless solution to clogged drains was. I wondered why the contractor didn’t promote himself but then it came to me. […]

Good News On Life Expectancy Of CIPP

Good News On Life Expectancy Of CIPP

A new study just released demonstrating that CIPP appears to have a much longer design life than the 50 years the product touts as a design life.

Drain Cleaning – The Only Fix?

Drain Cleaning – The Only Fix?

“You guys that are promoting lateral lining and pipe bursting are trying to sell a product that isn’t needed.

Failure – To Quit Or Grow Are Your Two Choices

“Don’t be afraid to fail!” That’s what everyone tells you. It sure doesn’t feel good to fail. Failures usually cost you something, money, pride, status, credibility among other things.
