Pipe bursting is a trenchless method of replacing buried pipelines (such as sewer and water) without the need for traditional trenching. "Launching and receiving pits" replace the trench needed by conventional pipe-laying.
In general, pipe bursting is accomplished by the advancement of a cone-shaped bursting head through an original or host pipe that, due to its geometry, translates forward thrust into radial expansion forces. These radial expansion forces overcome the host's pipe's tensional and shear strength capabilities and subsequently burst or split the pipe.
Attached to the rear of the bursting head is the new line that is simultaneously installed as the bursting head advances and bursts the old pipe.
Pipe lining is a trenchless option to replace your sewer. We use the old sewer line as a host; resin is inserted into the sewer line along with a balloon. The balloon is inflated and forces the resin to coat the entire pipe.
Air is piped through the balloon, allowing the resin to cure in place. The balloon is then removed, giving you a new, seamless solution.
