Increasingly, sliplining of compromised water pipelines with Fusible PVC is becoming the preferred method of rehabilitation for water lines in congested suburban centers.

Insituform Technologies Inc. plans to acquire The Bayou Companies and Corrpro Companies Inc. for a combined $216 million, which the company plans to finance with debt and through a public offering.

HOBAS pipe’s high strength-to-weight ratio, smooth surface and flush, push-together joints are ideal for sliplining.
