That's a big problem, as health risks and other problems are much worse when it's unsanitary water that's leaking. If you're planning on rehabilitating your laterals, the easiest way is to rehabilitate the pipes using lining techniques. Read More

Regardless of who we are, we all have specific services in our homes, and one of the most important is our water control pipes—sewer, rainwater, and so forth—that often are made of cast iron. Sitting water on the roof and raw sewage are risks to our building and to our health. But what happens if a leak develops in one of these pipes? In a residential situation, that’s just the gutter for rainwater, and that’s easy to fix. But what if one of your sewer pipes develops a leak? Or, in a high-rise, what if your rainwater pipe from the roof develops a leak? That runs right through your building, and any leak means that the units inside of your high-rise is at risk for water damage—condominiums, offices, anything in between! Read More

Lateral pipe lining is a trenchless technology method used to rehabilitate the main sewer pipe coming from your house and connecting to the city sewer.  It uses the same cured-in-place pipe technology that cities and municipalities have been using for decades to fix their main sewer pipes with out having to dig them up.  This technology has been leveraged in the smaller pipe market for the last 15 years by companies like Express Sewer and Drain to fix smaller pipes (2" - 6" in diameter) for residential customers.  This means we can fix your old sewer and create a new "pipe-within-a-pipe", with little or no digging, and that will last for the next 50 years.

It all started in 1971 in London, England when a man named Eric Wood had a leaky pipe under his garage. To eliminate the need to dig up his entire garage floor to repair the pipe, Wood invented a cured-in-place pipe lining (CIPP) renovation method. He named the process insit u form, which derives from the Latin meaning “form in place.” On January 29, 1975, Wood applied for patent number 4009063, with the patent for cured-in-place pipe lining granted on February 22, 1977.  Insituform Technologies commercialized the patent, and brought the technology to the United States shortly thereafter. Since it’s inception in 1971, it is estimated that 50,000 km of cured-in-place pipe lining has been installed worldwide! Read More
