Sewer Pipe Bursting Repair


Pipe Bursting RepairSewer pipe bursting is another method for replacing your sewer. This method is used when the sewer line is not in good enough condition to use the liner method.

Bursting a sewer line is quite a bit different than a liner. It requires 2 holes and plenty of room to use this method. With pipe bursting we will excavate 2 holes, one at each end of the sewer replacement. Once the holes are excavated we will send a very strong cable through the line and connect it to the HDPE pipe (High Density Poly Ethylene) and the other end connects to the hydraulic bursting machine. On the pipe side a cone shaped head is attached (so that when it is being pulled through it will break the existing line) and moved out of the way so the new pipe can take its place. When pulling a line over 20’ in length we use a fusion machine to connect 2 pipes together. It makes a very strong connection without the use of couplings. We always try to use the liner method, as it is less expensive than pipe bursting.

No matter which method we use, you are in good hands and we will make sure your job is completed properly every time so you will no longer have sewer issues.
