What Is Pipe Bursting?

Advanced Pipe Repair uses trenchless Cured-In-Place-Pipe repair to fix their customers pipes so they don’t have to deal with the drilling and intrusion of traditional construction trenches for pipe repair. Trenchless pipe repair is the repairing or replacing of pipes through the use of a machine that inserts a new pipe within the old one. This process is usually done from a rooftop or outside the building. Pipe Bursting is the term referring to the new pipe bursting the old one in order to replace the pipe on the spot. This method can be used for all types pipes: Sewer, water, or natural gas. This way your pipe is repaired right where it needs to be, without having to tear away its surroundings to locate it!

 

How Does It Work?

A strong cable is put at each end of the pipe with a ‘pipe bursting head’ attached to the cable. A strong winch at the one end pulls the pipe bursting head with the new pipe behind it through the old pipe. This allows the new pipe to break it and replace the old pipe.

Unlike many other types of pipe repair services, any pipe is qualified for pipe bursting. The diameter of the new pipe can be larger than the old pipe, even increasing flow if desired.  Another bonus of pipe bursting, is that the new pipe is stronger than one will receive with most pipe lining options.
