The reconnecting of drains after lining sewer pipes is a major stumbling block in the acceptance of the no-dig renovation techniques. A fitting and robotics have been developed to solve this problem without digging up the existing connection. The solution is based on the expansion of a thermoplastic connector by means of heat and pressure. The five step installation process requires the use of specially designed robot units.
