Pipe Bursting

Using trenchless pipe replacement technology, SSC Boring are experts in trenchless sewer line repair and pipe bursting.  This service is the ideal technique to use for the replacement of utility lines such as gas, water, sewer, telephone, and power.  Our Pipe Bursting efficiently bursts clay, concrete, cast iron, and PVC pipe. Pipe bursting is a trenchless sewer replacement method where a large cone shape head is hydraulically pulled by steel cable through the old sewer line, breaking apart the old pipe underground while at the same time pulling into place a seamless HDPE pipe that is the same size or larger than the old pipe. SSC Boring is the recommended contractor for trenchless pipe replacement with many years’ experience in pipe bursting and sewer pipe repair.

Typical Applications for Pipe Bursting:

Rehabilitating or enlarging sewer or utility lines.

Sewer pipe repair or utility line repair.

Description:

Pipe bursting trenchless sewer replacement is the most effective way of taking out a smaller water or sewer line and replacing it with one that is slightly larger. This can be achieved by using trenchless pipe replacement. In this technique, a new pipe is secured to a pipe bursting tool that uses air pressure to break up the old pipe sending fragments into the surrounding soil as it simultaneously drags the larger replacement pipe into place. Watertight fittings are then installed at lateral connections to minimize inflow and filtration.

Limitations:

Established pipes must be of a fractural material (iron, clay, cement).

Considerations:

  • Follows existing pipe path
  • Preferred technology for up sizing pipes
  • Reduces excavation and restoration costs
