What Is Pipe Bursting?

This method of trenchless pipe replacement entails pushing a specialized bursting head into the affected pipe. The bursting head has a pipe attached to it, which is pushed in place as the head breaks up the damaged pipe, pushing the debris into the surrounding soil.

Finding the Damage

Before we carry out the trenchless pipe bursting process, our team must frist locate and determine the severity of damage to the pipe. Once the inspection is complete and has confirmed that the pipe is indeed damaged and is a good candidate for the pipe bursting procedure, our team can then proceed to the next step.

Cleaning the Pipes

Since we’d need to push a pipe bursting head into the affected pipe using hydraulics, we want to make sure that the apparatus can slide on through smoothly so we can get optimal results. We are able to achieve this by making sure that the interior of the pipe is clean and free from obstructions. Drain cleaning is also done when we are performing trenchless pipe repair services as well.

Benefits of Pipe Bursting

Pipe bursting is safe and cost-effective. You’ll reduce labor costs on yard repair that come with traditional methods that involve excavation. You also won’t be exposed to dangerous elements such as mold and asbestos. Pipe bursting is also relatively fast since you eliminate the need for excavation that can take several days.

Morevoer, pipe bursting is environmentally friendly as it does not produce waste products that need to be disposed of at a landfill.
