Trenchless technology has revolutionized the way that pipe replacements are performed. Our pipe bursting technique is one of the many convenient trenchless services that we offer and provides a safe and effective way to replace a variety of pipes without digging up your property. Traditional repairs are a thing of the past with modern techniques like pipe bursting.
When is Pipe Bursting Needed?
No one wants to discover a plumbing problem, and that is particularly true when your plumbing problem requires extensive repairs or even replacement. When damaged pipes are present, our technicians work directly with you to recommend the ideal repairs for your unique circumstances. Pipe bursting is necessary when our trenchless pipe repair methods are not sufficient to fix the damaged section of pipe. This type of damage can occur when tree root invasions or corrosion have compromised the structural integrity of the pipe or even caused it to collapse.
Understanding the signs of damaged pipes will help you mitigate the impact to your property, so give us a call at the first sign of water damage, recurring clogs, increased utility bills, and changes in water pressure.
How is Pipe Bursting Performed?
Our knowledgeable technicians will typically begin with a camera inspection to identify the precise location, length, and condition of the damaged area. Drain cleaning may also be used to clear out tree roots, mineral buildup, or other obstructions to get a clear picture of your pipeline.
When pipe bursting is necessary, our equipment only requires two small access points. A bursting head is fed into your existing pipe and driven through the damaged section to break it apart. A new, durable section of pipe is pulled into place directly behind the bursting head. Once the pipe is installed, the equipment is pulled out at the other access point and the repair is complete.
Benefits of Trenchless Pipe Replacement
Pipe bursting is a versatile procedure that has changed the way we perform pipe replacement. Benefits of the technique include:
