It Started with Air Ducts and Mushrooms

Agricultural engineer Eric Wood first developed the concept of what is now commonly referred to as trenchless pipe lining in 1970. Also referred to as cured-in-place piping or CIPP, it's an approach to interior pipe repair that Wood developed so he could repair ducts for his mushrooms in a way that was less invasive.

Pipe Bursting Solved Aging Infrastructure Problems

Trenchless pipe replacement involving what's known as pipe bursting came along in the mid-1970s. The idea to break up an existing pipe and replace it with a new one in the same space was inspired by a need to replace aging pipes quickly and efficiently. Today, pipe bursting continues to be a minimally disruptive way to restore damaged or collapsed pipes.

Trenchless Solutions in the 21st Century

Trenchless sewer repair became increasingly accessible once original patents expired and other companies were free to improve upon this technology. By the time the 21st century arrived, trenchless services were much more accessible. This trend continues today as even more homeowners and business owners discover the many benefits of restoring pipes with little or no digging.
