What is Pipe Bursting?
The pipe bursting method is done by excavating 2 holes: one as a start/entrance pit and a second as an exit pit. Then we send a cable through the pipe. On one end there is a cone that splits the pipe, pulls it apart, and has a cone attached to the new pipe to replace the line. On the other end of the cable there is a puller set up that attaches to the cable, pulls the cone through the pipe, and slides the new pipe in behind the bursting cone.
This method can split cast iron, clay, transite, cement, and ductile iron pipes. We can use this method to replace lines under driveways, sidewalks, homes, highways, and other things that make traditional digging expensive or impossible. We are able to replace drain lines, water lines, sewer lines, and about any other line that would need to be replaced with this method. Call us now for an estimate!
