What Is Trenchless Pipe Bursting?

For good reason, this technique is a wildly popular sewer replacement method. A replacement pipe is affixed to a bursting head and pushed through a small access hole into an existing, damaged, underground pipe using a pull rod or hydraulic power. The base of the bursting head is larger than the existing pipe which causes the existing pipe to break apart as the bursting head moves forward. The new pipe is pulled behind the bursting head, taking the place of the old pipeline without having to dig it out of your yard. Modern pipe bursting can be completed in a matter of hours. With trenchless pipe bursting, there is not a lot of disturbance to your yard… no trench… just a small access hole. The replacement pipes can last up to fifty years.

Because the process is so simple and efficient process pipe bursting has become one of America’s preferred pipe replacement methods and has created national awareness of trenchless technology. Many homeowners and sewer industry professionals like Mr. Plumber prefer the pipe bursting method when applicable.

Is Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement Right for Me?

Trenchless sewer pipe replacement is the best option for avoiding the disruption and costs associated with digging long trenches in your yard and tearing up landscaping, hardscaping, driveways and other structures that are frequently in the way when replacing damaged sewer lines. For traditional trenching, you’re often forced to pay to dig up the street in front of your home, for traffic to be rerouted, and for repairs to any city-owned property or main sewer lines. The cost for all of this work can range from a few thousand dollars to upwards of $20,000 or more. Trenchless options for sewer line replacement have been around for about 15 years, but it’s still not a well-known option amongst homeowners. A trenchless replacement can cost 30 to 50 percent more than conventional digging in some cases, but it can still be more cost effective because you’re not spending thousands of dollars in additional restorative work. Depending on where you live, as well as the condition and configuration of your pipes, trenchless sewer line replacement might be the smartest option for you.
