What is Trenchless Pipe Lining?
Sewer pipe lining has its origins in a process called sliplining, where a smaller system of carrier pipes would be inserted and pulled through an existing damaged pipe to rehabilitate the sewer pipe system without the need for a full replacement. The most popular methods today for sewer pipe lining involve an initial sewer camera inspection to verify cracks or a compromised pipe. Once confirmed, a tube is inserted that has been saturated with epoxy, which then gets cured against the wall of the pipes using the latest Bluelight LED technology to seal the pipe lining into place.
This is sometimes referred to as CIPP Lining: Cured-In-Place-Pipe Lining.

New Bluelight LED Technology for Sewer Lining
The two most popular methods today for sewer pipe lining are the traditional heat method of using hot air to inflate an inserted tube. The epoxy lining gets cured in place and pressed against the walls of the existing piping to create a new seal and lining throughout the walls of the existing pipes.
At Hoffmann Brothers, we are proud to introduce the latest pipe lining technology: Bluelight LED sealing. Using Bluelight LED systems, our technicians can now cure the lining of pipes with even stronger accuracy and with increased speed, up to five times faster than the traditional hot air method.
This type of epoxy pipe lining is known as a trenchless pipe lining because it does not involve digging a trench in your yard for replacement. The new pipe lining creates a strong seal giving new life to the pipes with a lifespan that can last several decades. Call Hoffmann Brothers today to learn more about Bluelight LED pipe lining.
