Over 1000km of Aquapipe® with 60,000 service connections have been installed over the past two decades throughout 500 towns and cities in North America and Australasia.

Aquapipe® is composite material i.e. woven polyester jackets (with a polymeric membrane bonded to the interior to ensure watertightness) and a specialist epoxy resin. It is available in any pipe internal diameter from 100 – 630mm diameters for pressure main pipelines

Structural Capacity

Aquapipe® is designed and installed according to ASTM F 1216 and ASTM F 1743 Standards. It is designated as a Class IV fully structural liner when compared to the AWWA M28 structural classification. This means that Aquapipe® is a stand-alone structural liner that can withstand all dead and live loads and internal pressures, including vacuum, without the help of the residual strength of the existing pipe. If the host pipe is depressurized, Aquapipe® will resist the external dead and live loads. The maximum burst pressure of Aquapipe® is greater than 50 bar


Aquapipe® is certified by NSF/ANSI Standard 61, UL, NQ 3660-950, AS/NZS 4020 and is a WRAS approved product (BS6920)


Aquapipe® is impregnated onsite with specialist epoxy resin and is then pulled in place through the host pipe. The Aquapipe® liner is shaped by pushing a pig through the liner using water pressure and then cured with circulating hot water (CIPP)

Service Connections

The service connections are reinstated from within the pipe using a remote controlled mechanical robot. A closed-circuit television (CCTV) system is used to monitor the operation. Watertightness is preserved by the resin that surrounds the threaded cavities of the service connections and ensures a tight bond with Aquapipe®
