What is the CIPP pipe relining process?

The CIPP pipe relining process involves the impregnation of a flexible pipe lining with specially formulated resin, which is then pushed into a damaged or ageing pipe. Hot water or steam is then put into the pipe, which expands the CPP lining and ensures it sticks to the inside of the old pipe. This method results in a 'pipe within a pipe' scenario, as can be seen below.
