Definition - What does Lining With Inserted Hose mean?

Trenchlesspedia explains Lining With Inserted Hose
One method for rehabilitation of a defective pipe is to use a hose liner. A reinforced PVC hose liner is highly flexible and easy to handle. It is durable and leak-resistant, as well as economical.
To convey fluids under pressure, a lining with an inserted hose can be pulled into a host pipe. Once installed, the hose is inflated to conform to the walls of the pipe. Special fittings are used on the ends to secure the lining to the pipe.
