WE FIX PIPES
Trenchless Underground Pipe Restoration
Trenchless Pipe Lining Boston, Massachusetts
zero-dig sewer repair methods
We fix sewers without excavation. Boston Pipe Lining Company can fix your sewer using our ZERO-DIG trenchless pipe restoration methods. You don’t have to dig up your old pipes to fix them. We can reline your sewer lines no matter how bad the damage is.
Pipes often suffer deterioration and corrosion when buried in the ground. Fixing the problem could mean digging up the pipe or constantly flushing it, but this is a rather costly approach. Instead, we use the CIPP (Cured in Place Pipe) repair technique. The CIPP method is so effective that it can fix all structural integrity problem a buried pipe would ever have.
We are saving America’s underground infrastructure one pipeline at a time. Boston pipelining can repair virtually any diameter pipe without digging them up. This is just one of may specialized services we offer in the greater Boston area. Book a service call today or browse our full suite of services here.
As you can see from the before & after renderings, the new pipe is created within the old existing host pipe. The new liner material is installed using a continuous inversion process with our inversion drum. This gives us the ability to reline any diameter pipe at any length.
before you begin
Familiarize yourself with some of the terms we use
Pipelining Repairing old pipes with new inserts
Pipelining is the summary of making new pipes within old pipes without digging up the old pipe. In most cases pipelining can be completed in one day without the loss of services or utilities above ground.
CIPP Cured In Place Pipe
This term means cured in place pipe. The epoxy resin we add to the liner is cured (or hardened) using steam or ultraviolet light and it forms the new pipe.
Liner New pipe installed in old pipe
Often we refer to the new pipe inside the old pipe as a liner or pipeliner. This is often a roll of woven liner material that is hollow on the inside. This is what you most often see when we show our machine with the liner coming out of the nose. Epoxy is impregnated into this tube to form the new pipe.
Cal Tube The balloon that presses the liner into the host pipe
a Cal tube or calibration tube is inserted into the new pipe liner and expanded to press the new liner to the host pipe walls while the epoxy is curing in place.
The first step in the pipe restoration process is to inspect the existing pipeline
Upon arrival, we will inspect your existing underground pipelines with our specialized sewer camera. This sewer camera is attached to a long armature that provides a live feed to our technicians. We can take a full video of the existing pipe and share it with you so you can see the damage prior to commencement.
All obstructions in the pipeline are cleared and removed
Roots, debris, or any other type of obstruction is removed and cleaned from the existing host pipe. We ensure the pipe is as clean as possible prior to beginning the pipe rehabilitation repair.
We measure pipe diameter and length to be repaired
Measurements of the pipelines diameter, depth and length are taken. The liner and calibration tube is then cut on the job site according to acquired measurements.
We mix the appropriate amount of resin for your specific repair
Resin is mixed for your pipe’s specific measurements. The resin is used to impregnate the new pipe liner that will eventually become your brand new pipe.
The newly measured & mixed liner is loaded into our inverter
We install the new pipe liner using our inversion drum or inverter. This is manually loaded and uses air pressure to shoot the new pipe liner into your bad host pipe.
The new pipe liner is inserted into the existing host pipe
The liner is then inserted into the existing pipe using directional hoses and inversion heads. These ensure proper insertion.
the new liner is shot downstream into the host pipe
Air pressure then inverts inside out allowing the resin to bond and seal with the existing host pipe. The calibration tube acts as a ballon to keep the liner in place as it cures.
service is restored and a new pipe lives within the old host pipe
Once cured, the calibration tube is removed and the pipe is ready for service. Thus creating a virtually brand new pipe within the old host pipe.

before & after
These images of a pipe cutaway tell the story of what cured-in-place pipelining means. They illustrate a failing pipeline with root intrusion, corrosion or even breakage. The lower pipe illustration shows the same pipeline with a rehabilitated relined and sealed new pipe liner. This is the core of our business and could mean the difference between costly excavation and rebuilding of infrastructure versus a simple day of No-Excavation pipe repair solutions.
Our patented cured-in-place pipe repair systems provide you with a solution to failing underground sewer and pipelines. Our extensive line of trenchless pipe repair systems can rehabilitate pipes ranging from 2″ – 48″ in diameter.
In addition to our underground pipe repair solutions, we also offer a wide array of vertical pipe repair solutions for high-rises, simple residential applications or industrial and factory facilities.
If you have a failing pipeline please reach out to us and chat with one of our highly skilled relining experts. That call could save you thousands of dollars on your broken pipe repair project.
