Our fully trained, licensed professionals have the pipe bursting equipment on-hand to deliver fast, efficient results and get your system repaired in no time. One of our specialties includes pipe bursting, a trenchless technique used for the replacement and rehabilitation of sewer and water lines, particularly in aging commercial, residential, municipal and industrial water and sewer line systems.

What Methods Do We Use?

Depending on your situation, there are several sewer pipe bursting techniques we can use to restore or replace your system such as lateral bursting, pneumatic pipe bursting or static bursting. During a traditional Hammerhead pipe bursting method, a technician uses a winch to pull a heavy-duty polyethylene pipe through an old pipeline of smaller or equal size. The pipe bursting tool is guided through the original pipe with the help of a constant-tension winch.

The broken or damaged pipeline is then split apart using a high-powered tool with a special bursting expander head that smashes through the old pipe while pulling the new replacement pipe into place. As the new pipe is fitted, the hole is enlarged as the rear expander head displaces host pipe fragments into the nearby soil. This procedure efficiently bursts cast iron, concrete, clay and PVC pipes.

Benefits of Pipe Bursting

Some customers may wonder what the advantages are of pipe bursting over the traditional digging of holes to repair a line. Here are a few benefits to consider:

  • Virtually eliminates damage to other underground facilities
  • Uses existing subsurface lane
  • Replace with the same size or larger pipe without open digging
  • Customers are never out of service for one day or so
  • Faster, quieter, cleaner and safer job
  • Installation is a capital investment
  • No maintenance costs like encapsulation or clamping
  • Reduces replacement costs and/or service transfers
  • Reduces mapping and property record changes
  • Major savings on reinstatement and excavation
  • Minimizes public and traffic disruption and inconvenience

As you can see, there are several reasons why you should consider pipe bursting and trenchless pipe repairs over traditional excavation methods. The technicians at Jet Speed Plumbing capitalize on these benefits and have the pipe bursting equipment available to get the job done right – the first time.
