5 Benefits of Pipe Bursting to Replace Buried Pipelines

If you’ve ever had a broken sewer pipe, then you know the sinking feeling of knowing your yard may be destroyed in the repair process. Trenches are typically dug in your yard to assess the problem and make repairs. It’s an unsightly process that leaves you with a muddy mess of a lawn.

But did you know that there may be an easier solution? Pipe bursting is a no-dig sewer line replacement option for some broken pipes.

The pipe bursting process is a method that companies like Advanced Trenchless Solutions use to replace your pipes without digging. And there are more benefits to pipe bursting than keeping your lawn intact!

What Is Pipe Bursting?

Pipe bursting is a trenchless repair process that replaces a broken or deteriorating underground pipe. In this method, an extension head attached to new piping is forced through your current pipes, which causes the old pipes to burst while replacing it with a new pipe at the same time. This method is more of a long-term solution to your piping problems.

There are a few limitations to pipe bursting. The section that needs repair must be at least 15 feet long. Or if your pipes are already collapsed or improperly graded, this method may not work.

Benefits of Pipe Bursting

We’ve already mentioned the most obvious benefit to pipe bursting: no trenches dug in your yard. But there are other benefits as well.

Pipe Bursting is Less Disruptive

The pipe bursting process is much less disruptive than traditional methods. Pipe bursting is a less dangerous work site, does not disrupt the local wildlife, and is safer for pedestrians, vehicles, and other commuters.

It’s also less disruptive for your neighbors and yourself.

Pipe Bursting is Environmentally-Friendly

Since pipe bursting is a lateral sewer line replacement option, it means less construction and fewer emissions.

Pipe bursting also allows for trees and other plants to remain in place during the process, rather than having to rip them out.

Plus, pipe bursting is likely the only way to replace pipes in wetlands areas, according to the EPA.

Pipe Bursting Provides Bigger Pipes

Since pipe bursting requires actually forcing the old pipe open enough to break, the new pipe that comes in behind allows for more hydraulic capacity.

This means your pipes are not narrower, which can sometimes happen in processes like pipe lining.

Pipe Bursting Works on Many Kinds of Pipes

Most types of existing pipe options can be burst through this process, such as cast iron, clay, Orangeburg, concrete, and Transite.

Some pipes that do not work with pipe bursting include HPDE, while ductile iron and reinforced concrete can be difficult to burst.

Pipe Bursting Work With Any Pipe Condition

In most cases, the condition of the existing pipe doesn’t matter with pipe bursting.

As long as the cable can be pulled through the pipe, a pipe can be burst and replaced with a new pipe.
