Why is this better than any other way? Pipe bursting is the best method because you are getting a brand new pipe put in without the huge mess of trenching. Bursting is also a more affordable option than other options. It also saves on yard restoration, saves trees, plants, concrete, and anything in the way of regular excavation.
We pulled a new sewer line through old orange berg and clay tile pipe. We dug a small hole and avoided most of the parking lot.
We start with excavating a pit in the street and a pit in the basement. After both are safely excavated and the holes are ready, we fuse 4" HDPE pipe together until we have the right length. Next we run the cable through the sewer and hook it up to our bursting machine. Then the machine uses 30 ton of pulling force to pull the new HDPE pipe through the old sewer. Now we make our connections and backfill the holes.
Not every sewer needs to be replaced. With our cameras we have the ability to find broken pipe and locate the spot that needs to be repaired. This saves time and money rather than replacing the entire line.
Pipe patching is a non excavation way to fix a bad or broken spot in the sewer lateral. This is recommended when excavation is not ideal. Pipe patch is a resin based product when its cured it forms to the existing pipe leaving a smooth round patch. .
