What is Pipe Bursting?
Pipe bursting is a trenchless method used to replace an existing pipe (such as sewer, water, or natural gas pipe) without physically removing it. More effective and safer than traditional, digging replacement operations, today’s trenchless pipe bursting methods use mechanically applied force and high-grade bursting heads.
How Pipe Bursting Works
This firmly-established technique is guaranteed to last for more than 50 years. A device enters inside the existing pipe and expands. When the device expands, the old pipe will burst. There will be two pits dug, one for the pipe’s insertion and the other for pulling the pipe.
What is Pipe Lining?
Pipe lining restores the pipe from corrosion, leaks, or cracks from roots. Lining is cost-efficient and less disruptive in comparison to replacing the entire pipe. Pipe lining also increases the lifetime of a piping system, preserves the building structure, landscape, and causes little to no destruction to the property.
How Pipe Lining Works
Pipe lining is also a trenchless method used to replace an existing pipe without physically removing it. A bendable tube coated with resin is blown into the damaged pipe and inflated. After the resin is hardened, it will be a pipe within a pipe, leaving behind a new, more efficient pipe within the existing system.
