Trenchless techniques are an excellent choice for homeowners who need to replace piping without ruining your landscapes, sidewalks and driveways, and also for municipal managers who are faced with installing new infrastructure where traffic or existing facilities present an obstacle.

Trenchless rehabilitation methods are generally more cost-effective than traditional exhume (dig) and replace methods. Trenchless rehabilitation refers to such construction methods as pipe bursting for for the repair, rehabilitation, or replacement of existing buried pipes and structures without excavation.

Pipe Genie innovations are the result of ten years of development by industry professionals who know what the end-user requires to ensure that jobs are completed most efficiently... no matter how tough the job!
