In past eras, the first response to the broken and torn was to mend and patch. Curiously, pipes and plumbing are exceptions to that rule. Complete overhauls and replacements characterize the industry’s approach to broken plumbing. Such an approach obviously has drawbacks: lawns and concrete are dug up, businesses are shuttered until construction concludes, and costs quickly mount. Under these circumstances, a relatively new method called pipe relining, which is sometimes known as Cured-in-Place Pipe (CIPP), is gaining popularity.
