Add trenchless tools and equipment to your fleet of drainage services.

Trenchless pipe rehabilitation is catching the world’s attention due to its performance and excellent benefits.

Trenchless technology is emerging as a game-changer for in the drainage and repair market as trenchless tools and equipment continue to be developed. Traditional methods have and are becoming increasingly disruptive, time-consuming, a major contributor to traffic congestions and most of all costly and detrimental to the environment. 

Trenchless methods and techniques are over coming these issues and redefining how we lay, repair, and maintain underground networks. As we continue to tackle replacing previous installations and repairing old materials, as well as the challenges of urbanisation and aging utility systems, this game changing and growing approach offers efficiency, sustainability, and minimal disruption.

The trenchless technology market is expected to reach a value of US$ 7.2 billion in 2028 (Find out more: Trenchless Pipe Rehabilitation Market Competitive Analysis:2023-2028 (

The increasing demand for sustainable and efficient drainage solutions is on the rise, making trenchless tools and equipment your next key investment to compete but also improve your range of drainage services. 

What are the benefits of trenchless pipe rehabilitation?

Trenchless methods have been used for over 40 years now and is now catching the world’s attention due to its various benefits while offering the repair, renewal, or replacement of existing underground pipeline with minimal or no excavation. Benefits include;

  • Lower Costs:trenchless technology can provide savings of up to 79% of the cost of traditional excavation installation methods.
  • Reduced Timeline:Pipe rehabilitation can be done in a matter of hours via trenchless technology as compared to days or weeks of disruption typically associated with traditional methods.
  • Safer for your Team:Reduces accidents on construction sites by 67%
  • Environmentally Friendly:Reduce socio-environmental costs by 80%
  • Major Applications:Can be used on water main pipes, wastewater pipes, gas pipes, sewer pipes, chemical pipes.

Trenchless pipe rehabilitation is continually growing and is now becoming easier, cleaner, faster and cheaper. 

There are several methods of no-dig pipe repair and pipe rehabilitation that are available in the market. CIPP is the most preferable methods used for the rehabilitation of wastewater pipes and is projected to remain the most dominant method in the years to come. 

Key Trenchless Technologies:

  • Cure-In-Place-Pipe (CIPP): CIPP is one of the most widely used rehabilitation methods for lateral sewers, storm lines and water mains, as curing lining within the existing pipe can eliminate infiltration add strength to a pipeline, prevent pipe delamination/scaling and prevent corrosion. CIPP methods offer pipeline engineers the option to significantly extend the life expectancy of an existing pipeline without the need to remove the old pipeline from its route, whether this is a buried pipe, a surface network, or a pipeline within a building.
  • Slip Lining:Slip lining methods are an alternative to traditional CIPP lining. Traditional slip lining requires access pits, large winching or pushing equipment, expensive pipe welding equipment, and additional labour and plant on site. However, with new innovations such as the Picote Flexi-Sliplining™ method, this does not require any excavation, having a small portable welding rig, lightweight materials, and being very flexible meant that all the works could be carried out from the existing chambers and utilising the ground space on site.
  • Spray-in-place Pipe:Renovate old or deteriorated drains and sewers to prolong the lifespan of an existing pipe. Once the pipe is cleaned, applying an epoxy resin coating provides a damp-proof, corrosion resistant, wear-resistant, and non-corrosive lining. Using brush coating system to spray in place pipe, contractors can repair and renovate entire piping systems for example apartments or blocks of flats with minimal disruption, avoiding costly excavation.

  • Pipe patch repair:Similar to CIPP lining methods, if you are only repairing or rehabilitating a short length of pipe, you could use a patch repair method with an ambient curing process. Ambient cure resins are used in short drag-in and inversion liners and patch repair systems. By using a simple 2 or 3-part resin system, the process of curing begins as soon as the components meet each other.
  • Mechanical point repair:Mechanical point repair systems are made from high-quality and long-lasting materials, such as EPDM rubber and stainless steel. The perfect alternative to patch repair, the install requires no curing time and releases no emissions or foul smells. With a swift and simple installation process, just like a patch repair, a mechanical point repair system, doesn’t involve excavation which helps reduce disruption and avoids any lane rental charges. The systems are an efficient method of sealing pipes that are damaged due to corrosion, displaced joints, tree roots and ground movement, and are manufactured to suit an array of pipe materials including concrete, steel, cast iron, plastic, and glass-fibre.


The market is mainly driven by the increase of spending towards infrastructure rehabilitation as well as the increasing push towards a greener future, the innovation and growing awareness of trenchless technology with various trenchless rehabilitation methods used to repair existing pipelines, is not only growing the marketing but each one can offer significant benefits both for the customer and for you as a business.
