Trenchless Pipe Bursting – Sewer Line Replacement Technology

Sewer pipe bursting is the method of replacing an sewer line with minimal excavation. Pipe bursting involves installing a new sewer pipe while simultaneously breaking up the old pipe with a machine called a bursting head.

How Pipe Bursting Works:

At both ends of the existing sewer line two small holes are made. Then a heavy cable is fed through the old sewer line. After the cable is fed through the entire sewer line, it is attached to a cone shaped tool called a bursting head. The bursting head is securely fastened to a brand new sewer pipe on the other end. A powerful winch then pulls the cable and the attached new sewer line through the old sewer line causing the bursting head to spear head the old pipe, easily breaking it up into small pieces, and simultaneously pulling the new sewer pipe in after it.

Pipe Bursting Saves Homeowners, Businesses, and Cities Millions of Dollars

Traditional sewer line replacement methods involve excavating the entire length of the old sewer pipe. In scenarios where the sewer line runs under streets, buildings, and other structures these would need to be dismantled and dug up, costing thousands of dollars in additional construction costs. With the more advanced pipe busting technology, only a couple of access points are required to be dug up at each end of the old sewer line, and the new pipe is pulled through the old pipe underground. The result is a faster repair job, reduced costs, and landscaping, yardss, buildings, structures, and streets are untouched.

Trenchless Pipe Bursting Is Flexible

Pipe Bursting has been used on everything from an average home to very large and difficult commercial or municipal projects with old sewer pipe lines as wide as 56″ in diameter and several hundred feet in length with exceptional results. In addition, the new pipe being installed called be wider in diameter than the old pipe being replaced to allow for future growth. Best of all, pipe bursting saves homeowners, business, and municipalities thousands in construction and excavation costs.
