What is Pipe Bursting?

Pipe bursting is a no-trench process of replacing buried pipes for water, natural gas and sewer pipes. This method allows plumbers to replace damaged pipe without having to dig a construction trench and rip up the ground.

Some common tools needed for bursting pipe include:

  • Expander head
  • Bursting head
  • Pulling units
  • Hydraulic equipment
  • Fusion equipment

When you burst pipes without the right equipment, it will result in messy, labor intensive work that may not be satisfactory for business or homeowners. The right process requires the right tools since you are precisely breaking and expanding of the existing buried pipe while simultaneously replacing it with a newer, higher-density (HDPE) polyethylene pipe underground.

Pipe Bursting is a Non-Invasive Alternative

Busting pipe is done with machines that split your existing pipe below ground. The bursting head is pulled through to split the existing pipe while dragging a new pipe inside behind. The new structure replaces your existing pipeline, similar to a traditional trench, but without the removal of any soil or pipe. Anytime you use pipe bursting or pipe splitting, you avoid any need to for heavy digging equipment. You can also burst or split pipe to size up your pipeline and increase the capacity flow though.

Our pipe bursting process starts with a cone-shaped burst head that is slightly larger than the new replacement pipe,. We initiate the process by dragging the head through the existing pipe. Forcing the oversized head down the existing pipe causes the old pipeline to split and make way for new piping. While our burst head is pulled through the host pipe, the destruction creates a larger cavity for the new “product pipe”. In the final stages of our bursting process, the product pipe directly follows the bursting head as it is pulled or pushed into the newly formed pipe cavity.
