Understanding Pipe Bursting Methods
Displacing old pipes can be removed in many different ways, and pipe bursting makes it possible to replace any pipe. But before we recommend pipe bursting as ideal the solution for pipe problems, we take our time to diagnose the problem and ensure that our customers make the final choice. Pipe bursting is a great method for fixing old pipes without needing trenches in the ground to access them. Modern technology gives us the capability to use jetter hoses with an attached camera and pipe bursting heads to easily replace old pipes. The benefits of this method include installing a new pipe with the same dimensions as the old one, as well as establishing better flow and support throughout the pipe.
- Static bursting. Static pipe bursting is a method implemented when a gas and sewer line needs to be replaced. This method reduces the need to dig trenches and is powered by a hydraulic power unit, offering an efficient solution for fixing these vital lines quickly.
- Pneumatic bursting. At Pipe Surgeons, we recommend pneumatic bursting if a large sewer, gas, or water line needs to be replaced and is powered by an air compressor.
- Lateral bursting. At Pipe Surgeons, our lateral bursting technique is one of the most popular solutions for plumbing complications. Lateral bursting is a trenchless method for replacing pipes, environmentally friendly, and cost-efficient. Most importantly, this method avoids releasing dangerous gases into the air and promotes safety and security.
