What Tools And Equipment Are Used For Pipe Lining?

Thanks to new technology, sewer and drain specialists can repair pipes without damaging landscape or racking up expensive repair costs. It’s a revolutionary development in the industry. So, if you’re interested in learning what tools and equipment are used for pipe lining, check out this comprehensive guide.

What Is CIPP?

Cured in place pipe lining (CIPP), is a trenchless restoration method that repairs pipelines. CIPP is an efficient alternative to traditional pipe replacement that doesn’t cause structural, landscape, or flooring damage to a home. CIPP can remedy pipe damage like deterioration, corrosion, root intrusion, or fracturing. And this is all possible with the right material.

Drain Camera

A drain camera is a small camera attached to a flexible rod that travels down a pipe to inspect the drain. It can pinpoint the exact location of damage, clogs, corrosion, or roots in the drain. Specialists can see what the camera observes on a smart device or screen. Drain cameras are excellent diagnostic tools that aid in the trenchless pipe lining process.


A hydro-jetter is a hose with a 360-degree nozzle that goes into the drain. High-pressure water blasts through the nozzle and clears clogged debris. Hydro-jetter technology gets rid of stubborn blockages and is more effective than snaking a drain. This technology ensures the breakdown of debris and clean drainpipe walls.

Picote Pipe Cleaners

Picote pipe cleaner is another technique for removing clogged debris in a drain. Picote pipe cleaners are efficient powerhouses that glide down drains and successfully clear out waste. Designed for fast and effective drain cleaning, this tool gets the job done.


Perma-liner technology plays a significant role in pipe lining because it completes the work of a pipe replacement without digging or landscape damage. Essentially, perma-liner is a “pipe within a pipe.” After clearing the drain, specialists install the liner inside the existing pipe, and it seals off any damage like cracks or holes.
