ISCO Industries
Finally, there’s a no-dig solution to culvert lining and culvert rehab. The Snap-Tite Culvert Lining System is an intelligent, cost-effective solution. Snap-Tite rehabilitates a failing culvert lining system without the need to remove the existing deteriorated pipe. The Snap-Tite System actually outperforms the concrete and corrugated metal it rehabilitates. Lightweight, flexible and durable HDPE has an indefinite service life. 800.345.4726, or

Hobas centrifugally cast pipe is ideal for sliplining because of its high strength-to-weight ratio and smooth surface. Superior hydraulic characteristics provide maximum flow recovery. Most U.S. cities have used Hobas pipe in new construction and rehab for critical installations including storm and sanitary sewers, other corrosive environments and potable water. It can be installed by a variety of methods. Contractors prefer its leak-free, push-together joints and standard 20-foot pipe sections that reduce installation time and costs. 800.856.7473,

Underground Solutions
Underground Solutions Inc. (UGSI) provides infrastructure technologies for water and sewer applications. UGSI’s Fusible PVC pipe products, including Fusible C-900, Fusible C-905 and FPVC, utilize patented technology to produce a fused monolithic, fully-restrained, gasket-free, leak-free piping system ideal for trenchless (horizontal directional drilling, pipe bursting and sliplining) or conventional “open-cut” installations, and are available in 4-inch to 36-inch diameters. 858.679.9551,

SaniTite HP Sanitary pipe has been specifically/engineered for the gravity flow sanitary sewer market. The bell and spigot joining system provides an added factor of safety for design/engineers by including polymer reinforced bells and double gasket spigots on every stick of pipe. Advanced polypropylene resin technology and an exclusive triple wall design (30-60 inches) provides enhanced pipe stiffness, beam strength and joint integrity making HP sanitary the logical choice for your gravity flow sanitary sewer project. 800.821.6710,

With the ability to make custom diameters, Flowtite can create the optimum pipe size to match the inside diameter of the existing pipeline. This will provide the maximum flow capabilities while still permitting ease of installation. Standard Flowtite pipe can be pushed into place even with low sewer flow conditions. The Allowable Push or Jacking Loads will vary based on the pipe wall thickness. Flowtite pipe also can be made in joint lengths from 10 feet to 40 feet, benefiting in reduced installation pits and installation time. 225.658.6166,

CONTECH Engineered Solutions
DuroMaxx 80 ksi steel reinforcing provides the strength; pressure rated polyethylene resin provides the durability. The pipe is designed with a smooth inner wall for outstanding hydraulic capacity and provides the properties you can count on for long-term service and performance in the most demanding environments. DuroMaxx provides the lightweight, low-cost structural advantages of traditional HDPE with none of the disadvantages. With a smooth inner wall for outstanding hydraulic capacity, DuroMaxx provides the necessary properties for long term service and performance in the most demanding of environments. It is available in diameters ranging from 30 to 120 inches and manufactured in standard lengths of 14 or 24 feet with both bell and spigot and welded coupler joints. 800.338.1122,
