What is Pipe Bursting?

Pipe bursting is a method of sewer pipe replacement. Unlike traditional dig ups, pipe bursting places a brand-new pipe in place of the damaged sewer line without excavation. This reduces time and cost, as well as saving concrete and landscaping. 

As an alternative to both traditional sewer line replacement and epoxy pipe relining, pipe bursting is ideal and cost effective. It is also a fast option, usually completed within one or two days, depending on the length of sewer line being replaced. 

Although it is a trenchless form of repair, pipe bursting does require some digging. Two small access points are accessed for the entry and exit of the sewer line to ensure our state-of-the-art pipe bursting equipment can accurately install the new pipe.  

The new sewer line used in pipe bursting is a durable and flexible High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) pipe. It is seamless, which guards against root intrusion and specially heat treated as it is being formed making it incredibly strong and long lasting. 

Bjc Plumbing Drain Services, Inc. Pipe Bursting – Bethlehem, PA

At the access entry point, our pipe bursting equipment will lower in a heavy-duty steel cable affixed with a pipe bursting head into the opening. As it is fed through the old and damaged sewer line, the bursting head, operated with a pneumatic jack system, completely breaks apart the old pipe. As it does this, it creates space for the new HDPE pipe while pulling the new pipe through and into place of the sewer line. 

The existing sewer line is demolished and left in the ground and a new high quality and seamless pipe is inserted into its place.
