On occasion, pipe bursting can threaten other utility lines buried nearby and in these cases, CIPP, or cured-in-place-pipe, is used. During the process, a single access pit is dug and a flexible tube is pulled through your existing broken pipe.  This flexible tube is coated in a high-tech material that hardens into a strong, new pipe. The tube is inflated and presses against the old pipe, essentially forming a new pipe within the old pipe.
