Pipe lining of existing and aging underground infrastructure is an expensive and major challenge that municipalities and engineers face on a daily basis. These underground infrastructures, which include water and sewer systems installed 50 years ago, have been subjected to deterioration due to corrosion, cracking, joint separation, sediment buildup and root penetration, which often leads to damaging sewage overflows that end up threatening to contaminate your community’s water source.

So how strong is PipePatch? Two men use a sledge hammer to try and break PipePatch.
