A Brief History of Trenchless Pipe Lining

pipe lining process

The Pipe Medic team uses the latest technologies and state-of-the-art equipment to take on any plumbing jobs our clients trust us with. Trenchless pipe lining is one such technology that we rely on so we can continue providing optimal trenchless pipe repair in Marietta, GA and the nearby areas.

Unlike traditional excavation methods, trenchless pipe lining is a minimally invasive pipe restoration solution which allows us to leave our clients' yards undisturbed. Trenchless services also save our clients money in the long run, are more environmentally friendly, and do not require us to invest in excavators or utilize a big crew for the job.

Also referred to as cure-in-place piping, the first instance of trenchless pipe replacement was developed by agricultural engineer Eric Wood in 1970. The need for a trenchless alternative arose when the 230ft air duct for his mushroom bed needed to be repaired.

In the mid-1970s, another trenchless sewer replacement approach emerged, known as pipe bursting. This method allowed plumbers to break up the existing plumbing lines and insert new ones in the same place.

The expiration of the patents on different trenchless sewer repair approaches allowed different companies to improve on the technology, making it easier and more accessible for use in commercial and residential plumbing.

Today, trenchless pipe lining is one of the most sought after pipe rehabilitation solutions in the market. With a wide range of applications, contractors and property owners alike can benefit greatly from this particular pipe repair method. Moreover, trenchless pipe lining can be done in as little as a day. This means that businesses don’t have to suspend operations and households can proceed with their routines as usual.
