Sewer Pipe Bursting
Trenchless sewer pipe bursting is a modern method of replacing sewer line pipe with minimal digging of the property surrounding the sewwer line.
Pipe Lining vs Pipe Bursting
Pipe lining is not always a possible option however. For instance, if the damaged pipe has any joints or has collapsed, the pipe liner will not be able to be put into place. If that is the case, pipe bursting can be performed instead.
Pipe Bursting is a Trenchless Sewer Repair Method
Pipe bursting is another one of the common trenchless sewer repair techniques that involves pulling a large, cone- shaped bursting head through the damaged pipe. The bursting head fractures the existing pipe so it can be extracted. As this is being done, a new pipe is simultaneously pulled into place.
While pipe bursting requires two holes to be dug at either end of the damaged pipe instead of the one hole needed to conduct pipe lining, it is still a far less invasive form of sewer pipe repair that will leave more property around the pipe intact than traditional methods.
Trenchless Pipe Bursting Saves Time and Money
Pipe bursting saves money in almost every case because it eliminates digging around the entire sewer line. There is a cost savings since jobs can be done more quickly.
