Pipe Bursting

Difficult sewer repair work can be very disruptive for property owners. All of these issues can be avoided if you opt in for the appropriate trenchless sewer repair. Before, your only hope of repairing that broken sewer line was to use traditional methods. Thanks to trenchless technology and effective pipe bursting methods, you can now choose pipe bursting as the better alternative. At the heart of modern sewer line repair and replacement is pipe bursting. What is it and how does it work?

Pipe Bursting Trenchless Repair

Pipe bursting may be employed for when your existing pipes are severely damaged. It’s the process of putting new pipes in place via a machine insertion into the old, damaged pipe, further fracturing it and sending the components into the soil area. First, the head “bursts” or bullets through the existing sewer line, then it drags the new line into place. This newer method fixes problem pipes that are old, undersized or worn out; it may also be utilized for sewer, gas and water lines.

Most property owners prefer trenchless sewer repair than traditional sewer line methods because of the following reasons:

1. Costs

Pipe bursting typically costs less than traditional line and pipe repair for many reasons. Not only is less heavy equipment needed, but less technicians are required to tackle issues when pipe bursting is used. Part of the reason that regular methods are so expensive is the excavation needed to inspect and begin work. As long as your pipes aren’t laying under a body of water, railway, or other challenging environment, you can expect to spend significantly less by opting for pipe bursting.

2. Landscaping

Some homeowners aren’t very concerned about the appearance of their lawn, either because they live on a large parcel of land without nearby neighbors or aren’t under the restrictions of an HOA. However, those who have to meet HOA guidelines or who are located close to their neighbors often worry about how pipe and water line repairs will impact their property’s aesthetics. Pipe bursting doesn’t require much digging or the placement of large holes in your yard. Instead, a small opening will be made for the purpose of inspecting the area with a camera, and once your contractor is ready to begin repairs the entry underground will be kept to a minimum.

3. Efficiency

Traditional methods of pipe rehabilitation often result in homeowners having to go days and days without a properly functioning water or sewer system. If it’s of utmost importance that you be able to get back to your daily routine as quickly as possible, pipe bursting is the best type of repair to choose. This is especially the case for owners of commercial buildings and retail stores, as damaged lines can significantly impact a business.

4. Environmental Concerns

Hands down, pipe bursting is the eco-friendlier option when compared to older sewer line repair techniques. Pipe bursting doesn’t call for any toxins or chemicals to be placed into your system, and it’s also the least disruptive to the environment surrounding your property. In addition, the pipe used to replace the damaged line is usually made from an environmentally safe material, such as HDPE. These more resilient pipes don’t leach chemicals or contaminants into the water and ground. The pipes also last longer, which prevents future sewer line problems and leakage.

5. Long Term Solutions

Few commercial and residential property owners want to keep dealing with repairs every few years. Pipe bursting is a method that is reliable and cost-effective in the long run. The materials used to complete repairs are highly durable, and the process itself results in a long-lasting solution that can hold up for decades.
