Residential Cast Iron Trenchless Pipe Lining Under Slab Without Excavation
We receive hundreds of calls every week from homeowners who are frantic because their plumber did a video inspection of their sewer lines and insists the slab in the entire house has to be excavated, or that trenching under the house has to be performed for pipe replacement. The cause is always the same, cracked or broken cast iron or clay pipes, often with roots inside.

Residential Pipe Lining Explained In 3 Minutes
But DO Your Sewer Pipes Need To Be Re-Lined?
Are you experiencing frequent sewage backups? Do you have to repeatedly pay the drain rooter company to unclog your drains? If so, you most likely have tree roots growing in your sewer pipe that grow back after the rooter company leaves, or you have cracked cast iron pipe where the bottom floor has rusted through to the soil. The remaining rough edges of cast iron keep catching on debris causing repeated blockages.
Are Your Sewer Lines Leaking Or Emitting Odors?
Cracked or broken cast iron allows sewer water and odors to escape, and allow termites to enter your house. The only permanent way to solve the problem is to replace the broken or cracked sewer pipe, or to install a new physical inner pipe lining.
No matter whether you have cast iron sewer pipes that are cracked or have missing pipe floors or clay sewer pipes with entire sections missing, sewer pipe lining is designed to form a new load-bearing durable inner pipe.
So What Exactly Is Drain Pipe Lining?
The new inner pipe lining is a long special fabric tube that has been wet out or saturated with a resin that hardens by itself within 2-4 hours. The new inner pipe only reduces the pipe diameter by about 5%, so flow is not affected, and the pipe lining material has a 100-year engineered life and typically comes with a 50 year warranty.
50-Year Engineered Lifespan! HTS Materials Testing & Quality Control
In order to maintain the materials approvals by the ASTM, EPA, NSF, IAPMO etc., our liners and resin are randomly sampled at the manufacturer without prior warning, and taken back to HTS Materials Testing in Houston, where the resin is mixed in the right ratio and applied to our liners.
Then they test the physical strength (see below), chemical resistance, heat, cold, environmentally friendly factors etc. to ensure that all the minimum standards are being maintained. From this the lining has an estimated 50 year lifespan. The factors tested are:
- SAMPLE COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH (psi)
- ASTM D 695 TENSILE STRENGTH (psi)
- ASTM D 638 TENSILE ELONGATION
- ASTM D 638 FLEXURAL STRENGTH ( psi)
- ASTM D 790 FLEXURAL MODULUS ( psi)
- ASTM D 790
Here Are The Testing Results
How Strong Is The New Inner Pipe? See Violent Video Below!
The final new inner pipe is designed for load-bearing pipes that are located under roads, railways and building footers. If, for example, a section of clay or cast iron sewer pipe is missing, the new inner lining is designed to be a stand-alone pipe.
Pipe lining is the modern alternative to pipe replacement!
- In fact, pipe lining IS pipe replacement
- The new lining that is installed inside the old pipe is as strong as new pipe
- Has a 50-year warranty
- Only reduces the internal diameter by 5%
- Only takes 3 hours to install
Let’s not forget, since pipe lining requires no excavation, it is cleaner, less invasive and much faster than repiping the old-fashioned way.
Which Pipes Can Be ReLined?
Pipelining, also known as Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) is used for clay pipe replacement, cast iron pipe repair, HVAC pipe repair, storm drain replacement, golf-course overflow drainage pipes, drinking water lines, and sewer pipelining of sanitary sewer pipe.
What Type Of Warranty Comes With The Pipe Lining?
Sewer pipe lining comes with a 50-year materials and labor warranty.
How Much Does Pipe Lining Cost?
Trenchless pipe rehabilitation costs much less than a sewer repipe project. Re-lining 4″ cast iron pipe typically runs $125 per ft. outdoors and around $175 per foot under structures like buildings.
