The ABC of Sewer & Drains – Pipe Bursting
While pipe bursting may sound like a catastrophic failure of a plumbing system, it’s actually one of the least destructive ways to repair a home sewer line as part of a process called trenchless sewer line repair.
Instead of digging up the yard to repair the sewer line, a very strong cable is pulled through the damaged section of piping and attached to a conical pipe bursting head. Behind this head is a new section of piping. As the pipe bursting head is pulled through the old piping it is broken up and the new piping is being pulled through the old pipe bed.
Pipe bursting is an ideal pipe replacement process for clay, steel and concrete piping that ranges in diameter from 75mm up to 300mm and in lengths up to 100 meters. New MDPE or HDPE piping can be installed in short sections or one continuous length.
