What is a pipe liner?

Some underground pipes are not severely broken but may suffer leakage from bad joints or cracks. A liner is a plastic sleeve, which is pulled into the pipe to seal it from any further leakage. This method doesn’t require the actual digging up of the line to install. It is however, more expensive.
