Who We Are

LiquiForce is a leader in no-dig pipeline rehabilitation for the clean water, waste water and other pipeline systems. Our unique, green pipeline rehabilitation systems provide new pipe standards and durability (50-100 years) for pipes 10 centimetres (4 inches) to 6 metres (20 feet) in diameter.

Our state-of-the-art pipeline rehabilitation process significantly reduces pipeline repair time with minimal disruption and decreases repair costs. Our green, no-dig technology helps reduce carbon and water footprints from the repair process.

From the point of distribution to user, and back to collection and treatment facilities we are a one-stop no-dig, pipeline service provider offering complete pipeline system inspection, assessment, rehabilitation and maintenance.

Think: non-invasive robotic surgery for pipeline systems.
