Trenchless Pipe Bursting Services

If you have been searching online for pipe bursting contractors near me, this article is for you. It is a bad day when you realize your sewer line pipe has burst and that you will need to have it replaced as soon as possible. On the upside, even though the replacement of buried sewer pipes sounds like a tough job, it can be done much more easily these days with the trenchless pipe bursting method.

What is the Trenchless Sewer Pipe Replacement Method?

With the trenchless sewer pipe replacement method, a traditional trench does not need to be constructed to expose the broken sewer line pipe or to replace it. This means less work, no dirt all over the place, less harm to the environment, and most importantly, it will save you money in the long run.

Even though it is stressful having to deal with a pipe bursting situation, the broken pipe can be replaced with a new one that is either of equal diameter or even larger by simply pulling the new pipe through the old one and fragmenting the broken pipe.

With the older, traditional method, repairing a punctured or broken sewer line meant at least one week of excavation work along with time to lay the new pipe and then repair the damage that was caused by digging into the ground. With the trenchless sewer line replacement method, known as pipe bursting, it makes it possible to replace the broken pipe with much higher quality pipes without the mess that the traditional excavation would have caused.

The trenchless sewer line pipe replacement method means that a cone-shaped bursting head will be run through the old and damaged sewer line pipe. The bursting head then breaks apart the old pipe while pulling the new pipe into place at the very same time. Although the trenchless pipe bursting method is not always feasible in every type of situation, it is very much the preferred and ideal method for most situations.

Benefits of the Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement (Pipe Bursting) Method

Although the trenchless pipe bursting sewer line replacement method will still require a little bit of digging, it is way less than the traditional method of sewer line replacement. There will only be a small amount of ground disturbance which is super easy to deal with and will leave no significant impact on the environment or your gorgeous landscaping and property.

Less digging –  With sewer line pipe bursting services, only two small access holes are required to be dug, which saves you the time it would take for a traditional trench to be dug with way less mess and disruption to your property.

Reduced costs – when you replace your sewer line pipe with the pipe bursting method, it will cost you about 40 percent less than the traditional excavation and pipe lane methods. You are also not going to incur costs from having to clean up the dig site or repair any damaged landscaping or damage to your lawn.

Improve the lifespan of your sewer line pipe – your original sewer line pipe was more than likely made of either concrete, clay, PVC, or cast iron, which are all very prone to breaking as well as to becoming punctured. With the trench list sewer line replacement method, the pipe will be made of either high-density polyethylene or HDPE which is much stronger than traditional pipe materials and is guaranteed to function without any issues for nearly half of a century.
