Pull-In-Place CIPP Liner VS Inversion CIPP Liner

“I’m confused. I was shopping for a lining system to install liners at the WWETT show but left not buying anything.  One vendor told me inversion was the only way to install liner as it would travel farther than pull-in-place, and another vendor told me that pull-in-place liner was better because it didn’t squeeze out […]
