Pipe Bursting

Our best non-evasive, trenchless sewer line replacement method!

Pipe bursting is a trenchless sewer replacement method that involves breaking and expanding the existing buried sewer line while simultaneously replacing it with new high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe. 

HOW IT WORKS

PIPE BURSTING

  1. A small access hole is dug at either end of the existing pipe.

  2. A hydraulic bursting tool is inserted into the existing pipe through one of the access points.

  3. The tool has a bursting head that is slightly larger than the diameter of the existing pipe. As it is pulled through the pipe, it breaks apart the old pipe and pushes the fragments into the surrounding soil.

  4. At the same time, a new pipe is pulled into place behind the bursting tool.

  5. Once the tool has made its way through the entire length of the existing pipe, the new pipe is connected to the existing system.
