T.V. Diversified completes a difficult junction box rehabilitation in a short time frame.

Repairing and relining large sewer lines is always a serious undertaking, especially when the lines in question run underneath a Texas bayou. Repipe Texas, a national CIPP contractor, was working on such a project when they ran into a serious snag; after designing and installing a temporary bypass system involving six high-volume diesel pumps and four temporary lines, system engineers were surprised to discover that a critical concrete junction box was badly decomposed by microbiologically induced corrosion (MIC) and in danger of failing structurally.
