Advantages of Pipe Bursting
The pipe bursting technique is an effective method for replacing buried water, sewer, drain, and gas lines. In the past, removing underground pipes involved digging trenches in your yard. This is time-consuming and creates a big mess on your property. Pipe bursting enables our Los Angeles plumbing experts to replace pipes in a much shorter amount of time and with significantly less damage to your property.
Bursting can be used for many pipe materials, including:
- Cast iron
- PVC pipe
In addition, pipe bursting is generally less expensive than traditional methods used for pipe replacement. The cost of excavating the ground and the time required for digging trenches are avoided with the use of this innovative technology. Your job will be completed faster and for less money with the use of our pipe bursting method.
The Installation Process
A constant tension winch is used to guide the pipe bursting tool through the host pipe. The tool then bursts the old pipe underground and a new pipe is pulled through. The tool is an expanding device, known as an expander head. As it moves through the pipe, the expander head breaks up the old pipes into small fragments.
