What is Trenchless Pipe Bursting?

Sewer lines are very resilient, but there will be times when repairs are needed. For the longest time, the only way that a plumbing contractor could repair or replace sewer lines was if they dug trenches in a person’s yard. This is not only very damaging to someone’s landscaping and hardscaping, but it also costs a lot of money. However, with innovations in the industry, repairing or replacing a sewer line is non-invasive and less expensive.

There are a number of different techniques that are use for sewer line repair and replacement; one of these pertinent and viable alternatives is pipe bursting. Pipe bursting is a full repair and replacement method that eliminates the hassle of large-scale digging, and cuts back on labor costs.

How Does Pipe Bursting Work?

Trenchless pipe bursting for a Rockville, MD sewer is completed using small entrance holes, allowing access to your damaged pipes, through which a bursting head and replacement pipe (physically attached to one another) are fed. Next the head’s sturdy, conical frame physically fragments and pushes away the damaged, existing pipe. In its place, an all-new pipe is laid.

Why You Should Consider Trenchless Pipe Bursting

With trenchless repair, you don’t have to hire an entire crew to come out and excavate your pipe system, which can lay four to six feet below ground. The entire pipe bursting process takes place underground and is completed through small entry holes. There are some other benefits to this process that aren’t as often discussed, such as the fact that trenchless pipe bursting is a much safer process for your home and drinking system.

This process avoids the potential for mold, asbestos exposure, and other possible pollutants. There is a reduced trench settlement, which means your lawn recovers faster from this invasive procedure. Best of all, pipe bursting guarantees pipe performance for decades to come. New pipes are almost universally guaranteed to perform at their peak ability for over half a century.
