Pipe Bursting & Trenchless Technology

Pipe bursting is a trenchless method of replacing buried pipelines (such as sewer, water, or natural gas pipes) without the need for a traditional construction trench.

Advantages include:
  • Replaces Size for Size or Upsize. (liners are always smaller than the host pipe)
  • New HDPE Pipe is Fused together, so no chance for I & I on new pipe.
  • This is Pipe Replacement in Place. Not a repair as with Liners.
  • Replace Laterals or Main Lines
  • Simplifies installation of new utility lines
    • Gas
    • Water
    • Sewer
    • Phone
    • Power
    • Cable
  • Speeds replacement of existing underground lines by destroying and replacing old pipe
    • Follows existing utility path
    • No need to move surrounding utilities
    • Reduces excavation costs up to 90%
    • Environmentally friendly with minimal surface disruption
