Pipe Bursting

Pipe Bursting

If your sewage system has been compromised due to breaks, cracks, offsets or other severe problems, pipe bursting might be the solution for restoring your wastewater system with minimal interruption.

Pipe bursting is a trenchless pipe technology that uses a hydrolic pulling to machine to pull a new pipe through an existing pipe.

After an entry and receiving pit are dug, a specially-engineered device called an expander head is inserted into the failing pipeline. The head bursts the damaged pipe as it moves through the existing pipe and pulls a new HDPE pipe in its place.

Professional pipe bursting can replace ANY kind of damaged pipe, Commercial and Residential:

  • PVC and other plastics
  • Clay
  • Cast iron
  • Orangeburg pipes

Conventionally, replacing old sewer lines could take days, causing you to leave your property. Plus, it’s considerably more expensive. With today’s trenchless technology, jobs can take only hours, and require minimal digging.

  • Undisruptive
  • Minimal digging
  • Professional results
  • Keep your residence or business up and running
  • Cost-efficient in the short- and long-term
