New Technology – Applied In Place Pipe (AIPP)

The problem we have with applying our CIPP products to drain, waste and vent piping, primarily inside the building walls, floors and ceilings is multiple tie ins and multiple dimensions. Trying to use a woven or […]

Why Did My Liner End Up In The Main?

Why Did My Liner End Up In The Main?

Original Post from 2 years ago, but got the question again, so I’ve updated and republished it. “I shot a liner today, thought I measured very carefully after measuring my camera marks, and cut my liner accordingly. My question is why did my liner that I carefully measured, end up 6″ into the main?”   […]

What Are You Advertising? Your Capability Or A Supplier’s?

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. While many claims are made by other technologies that claim to have a better mousetrap than tried and true sewer lining developed in 1970/1971, this study shows that post […]
