How does pipebursting work?
Pipebursting is a way to replace damaged or broken pipelines without having to dig the traditional ditch. Instead, two access holes are dug, one on each end of the damaged pipe. From here, we feed the new pipe into the first access hole with a bursting head attached to the front. The bursting head and new pipe are pulled through, breaking up the existing line in the process. The old, broken line gets pulled out the other end and the new line is left in its place. This method of pipebursting leaves the home with a brand new main line, with the same diameter as before and no trench in the yard.
