Pipe Bursting


If your sewage system has been compromised due to breaks, cracks or other severe problems, pipe bursting might be the solution for restoring maximum performance to your wastewater system. With our experienced professionals at the helm, work will be completed with speed and precision.

What Is Pipe Bursting And Its Benefits?

Pipe bursting is a trenchless technology, meaning experienced technicians don't have to perform excessive excavation work on your property. That means no mess and no stress. Perhaps more importantly, it means no expensive or intrusive digging, ensuring you, your family and employees can go about your day with little or no interruption.

Professional pipe bursting can replace ANY kind of damaged pipe, including:

  • PVC and other plastics 
  • Clay 
  • Cast iron
  • Orangeburg pipes
  • Copper

After an entry point and receiving pit are cleared, a specially-engineered device called an expander head is inserted into the failing pipeline. The head fragments the damaged pipe as it moves through it. A new pipe, attached to the back of the head, is immediately laid in its place, leaving only perfect, clean-running lines behind.

Conventionally, replacing old sewer lines could take days, causing you to leave your property. Plus, it's considerably more expensive. With today's trenchless technology, jobs can take only hours, and require minimal digging.  

  • Undisruptive
  • Minimal digging
  • Professional results
  • Keep your business up and running

  • Maximum productivity, with minimal staff and low overhead

Pipe bursting is so successful and cost-effective that municipalities all over the world have turned to it to complete public sewer systems. You can be sure that the process is being done by highly-experienced, journeyman plumbers who constantly stay atop industry advances.
