Trenchless pipe lining is a technique of restoring aged, damaged pipes that works by placing an epoxy-soaked liner in your sewer line. It is an excellent choice for homeowners who want their damaged or aged sewer line repaired quickly using a minimally invasive approach. In this article, New England Pipe Restoration, professionals in trenchless pipe lining in Boston, MA, explain how the trenchless pipe lining repair process works.


Any repair procedure requires pipe lining companies to first assess the nature and degree of damage. The trenchless pipe lining repair method starts with a camera inspection of the sewer system.

Pipe Cleaning

After completing the camera inspection, the technicians begin the sewer pipe lining process by removing any substances blocking your sewer line. It could be a section of the pipe that has collapsed, debris that has been washed down the drain, or tree roots that have penetrated the line.

Measuring the Pipes

The next step is to take the measurements of the pipe to know how much pipe liner and resin mixture to use for the repair. The technicians then measure and mix the resin based on these measurements.

Liner Installation

After clearing the sewer line, we will begin the repair. There are several ways to achieve this. The first is CIPP pipe lining (cured-in-place pipe lining). In CIPP pipe restoration, we use epoxy to seal and fortify a broken pipe internally. A liner soaked in epoxy is placed in an old line, and using a unique inflation tool, we expand the liner and allow it to dry and adopt the contour of the pipe walls. Other trenchless pipe lining methods we offer include pipe bursting and slip lining.

Trenchless pipe lining is a technique for restoring old, damaged pipes without digging up and disrupting your landscape. To learn more about cast iron pipe lining or our other pipe lining solutions, contact New England Pipe Restoration today.
