Pipe Renewal Technologies

Janssen Process is a no-dig remedy that addresses the underlying cause of lateral connection failures: inadequate bedding and structural support. Fast-curing resins are robotically pressure-injected into the cavities around a lateral, to create bedding that permanently eliminates root intrusion, infiltration and voids. It also seals the liner to the mainline at the lateral interface, preventing seepage between the two. Using the Janssen Process, a single truck renovates more laterals per day than conventional methods. 866.936.8476,
