Trenchless Pipe Bursting
Pipe bursting, also called pipe splitting, is commonly used to replace failing pipelines and systems that are buried deep within the ground. It’s the ideal method when the pipe has gone beyond its limit and eventually collapsed in on itself. The installation method of pipe bursting is also suitable for large diameter water mains.
The trenchless process involves creating two small pits, one at the beginning and another pit at the end of the troublesome pipe. A bursting head with a slightly larger size than your property’s existing pipe is then pushed or pulled forward right into the pipe, in a motion that shatters the old pipe into pieces. This clears up space for placement of the new pipe, which is pulled into place following the bursting head and attached to both ends of the previous pipe.
For business owners, the no-dig aspect is such a useful factor, especially in traffic-dense areas where digging is an absolute hassle. Homes and families won’t be inconvenienced, and remain safe throughout the process.
