Sewer Pipe Bursting

To satisfy the rising demand for sewer lateral replacements or sewer repairs, plumbers are turning to trenchless lateral replacement. Trenchless sewer repair or replacement can spare you the unpleasant side effects of open-cut lateral sewer repair or replacement. Pipe bursting is a well-established method for trenchless replacement and repair of worn out and undersized sewer pipes. An existing sewer pipe is replaced size-for-size or up-sized with a new pipe in the same location. The technique is the most cost effective when there are few lateral connections, when the old sewer pipe is structurally deteriorated and beyond repair, and when additional capacity is needed.
