How Does Trenchless Pipe Bursting Work?

During trenchless pipe bursting, 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 physically removing it. Modern pipe bursting can be completed in a matter of hours. The replacement pipes can last up to fifty years. This technique is a wildly popular sewer replacement method. With trenchless pipe bursting, there is not a lot of disturbance to your yard… no trench… just a small access hole.

This simple and efficient process has made pipe bursting one of America’s preferred pipe replacement methods and has created national awareness of trenchless technology. Many homeowners and sewer industry professionals like Thomas & Galbraith Heating, Cooling & Plumbing prefer the pipe bursting method when applicable.

Diagnosing Sewer Line Problems with Trenchless Technology

Sewer line clogs can be caused by a number of things. A camera inspection can show the cause of the clog so that you can learn how to fix the problem instead of just treating the symptom by unclogging the drain. When the diagnosis of your clogged drain requires a repair or replacement of an underground sewer pipe, we know that you don’t want to disturb your property any more than necessary. That’s why our sewer repair and replacement crews are trained in the use of trenchless technology. By choosing trenchless technology when it is applicable, the sewer repair or replacement can be done with minimal disturbance to your property.

Is Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement Right for Me?

With 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 any repairs to any city-owned property or main sewer lines. This can range from a few thousand dollars to $20,000 or more. Trenchless sewer pipe replacement can help you avoid the disruption and costs associated with digging long trenches in your yard and tearing up landscaping, hardscaping, driveways and other structures that are commonly in the way when replacing damaged sewer lines. 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. Trenchless methods for homes have been around for about 15 years, but many homeowners are still not aware of this option. Depending on where you live and the condition and configuration of your pipes, trenchless sewer line replacement might be your smartest option.
