Increasing awareness of deteriorating infrastructure systems has led to the development of a new pipeline reconstruction method which forms a tight-fitting, new PVC pipe within an existing pipe. This unique process can be used for reconstructing pipes ranging from 4-inch through 12-inch diameter for both municipal and industrial applications. The new PVC pipe provides structural support and isolates the existing conduit from further corrosion from the effluent.
