How Does Trenchless Pipe Bursting Work?
This technique is a wildly popular sewer replacement method. A replacement pipe is affixed to a bursting head and pushed through a small access hole into an existing, damaged, underground pipe using a pull rod or hydraulic power. The base of the bursting head is larger than the existing pipe which causes the existing pipe to break apart as the bursting head moves forward. The new pipe is pulled behind the bursting head, taking the place of the old pipeline without physically removing it. Modern pipe bursting can be completed in a matter of hours. With trenchless pipe bursting, there is not a lot of disturbance to your yard… no trench… just a small access hole. The replacement pipes can last up to fifty years.
This simple and efficient process has made pipe bursting one of America’s preferred pipe replacement methods and has created national awareness of trenchless technology. Many homeowners and sewer industry professionals like Jarboe’s Plumbing, Heating & Cooling prefer the pipe bursting method when applicable.
