Pipe bursting is a proven method for trenchless buried pipe (sewer, water or gas) replacement, when the existing pipe has become damaged. This process involves replacing the existing pipe size for size or increase the pipe size in the same location as the original pipe.
This technique is the most cost effective way for deteriorated pipes or when more capacity is needed.
BENEFITS OF PIPE BURSTING
No trenching involved means minimal disruption of existing infrastructure.
Pipe size can be increased along the same route.
Can be more cost effective given project conditions.
Faster installation than open cut, especially for deep pipe.
Minimal dewatering necessary in wet conditions.
Minimizes social costs such as traffic diversions, etc.
