Default Hitting the mark with super stretch liner.

I'll never try to hit the mark that close to the city connection again. Not with anything that says super stretch anyway. I'm glad we had the tools to cut the excess out of the city sewer. It was a nerve racking job. No pictures , I don't want any evidence of what a blocked city main with my name all over it looked like.

But at least you were covering the city main. Bonus!

how In the world that city main didn't back up is beyond me, all morning there was very little water running in it thankfully. had to leave the liner to set up all night cause I couldn't heat it and no back up in the city. Flooding a bunch of basements would have been a bad thing. And I thought the stressful thing about trenchless would be counting all the money. Wrong again

There's a few contractors (not even plumbers) that are trying to get into lining. Can't wait to hear all the stories of what they'll screw up on. If you had trouble, they sure as hell won't be able to figure it out.

Oh man I hope you are the only one that hears about it. I know of a few cities that banned liners because some idiot thought he can do it, looks easy and there is lots of money in it...

I hope this is not the case when the inspectors get pissed because 20 houses got flooded

No disrespect to the OP just talking in general from what I've seen in my area. Knowing what you are doing and having the tools is key.

I don't know what an OP is but I think it's me and no disrespect or offence taken. I'm not sure of what I'm doing and some of my equipment is questionable and you are 100% correct. Having the knowledge and the right equipment is the key. So far I've got neither I'm relying on being able to fix any screw ups with an excavator..... That I don't own and can't opperate so I would have to pay a bunch for. What a business model

Sometimes that's the only way to do it.
