With a commitment to providing residential and commercial customers with an ideal option for permanent sewer line repair solutions, we have extensive experience in pipe bursting in Ventura County.

A method of trenchless sewer line replacement, pipe bursting is often the most cost effective and least intrusive method to restore services quickly. After performing a sewer camera inspection, we can determine if pipe bursting is ideal to avoid excavation of landscaping and/or concrete.

How Does Pipe Bursting Work?

Unlike traditional sewer line replacement, pipe bursting does not require full excavation of the existing damaged line. With two small access points at the beginning and end of the line, our team will use top of the line pipe bursting equipment to install a brand new sewer pipe in place of the old line without disruption.

Once access is created, we feed a heavy duty steel cable affixed with a bursting head into the line. Attached to the other end of the cable, a pneumatic jack system is hooked up to specialty equipment to break up the damaged line while it is in ground.

As the cable is fed into the line, we insert the flexible, seamless, and incredibly durable High Density Polyethylene pipe (HDPE) into place of the old line. Our pipe bursting crew has extensive training in making the process seamless from start to finish.

Pipe Bursting Benefits

Pipe bursting has many benefits as a trenchless alternative to sewer line replacement. It can be used in pace of dig-ups, pipelining, and sewer line section repair.

  • Minimal Disruption – Pipe bursting requires only a small amount of disruption to gain access to pull the new pipe into the line. There is no excavation required that would require landscaping or concrete repair once the installation is complete. There is also no need to remove the damaged sewer line as the bursting thoroughly breaks up the pipe so it can be left in the  ground.  
  • Cost Effective – Without the need to excavate the old damaged sewer line, pipe bursting is a cost effective solution. Pipe bursting eliminates excavation costs and repairs, as well as the time involved in traditional sewer line replacements.
  • Long Lasting – The new line installed with pipe bursting is highly durable and long lasting. HDPE pipes are seamless, meaning it will warranty against future root intrusion and breaks.
  • Quick Replacement – In many cases, pipe bursting can be completed within one or two days by eliminating excavation time, removal of the old damaged line, and new installation. Depending on the length of line to be replaced, pipe bursting will allow for quick restoration of sewer facilities for businesses and homeowners.

Highly recommend!!!! I've had my unfortunate share of emergency plumbing needs and seen my fair share of plumbers. City Plumbing and Rooter by far has been the best experience I have had. They are prompt, honest, and do exceptional work. What more can you ask for? I have a young toddler who is all over the place and they even cared to ensure all the equipment was clean and not any type of hazard to her while they worked. Their attention to detail is clear not only in their work, but also how they handle their relationships and clients over all. I will never call anyone else again!

I don't always leave a 5 star review but, I give credit where credit is due. I called City Plumbing to see when they can come out and assess/fix a kitchen leak and the whole experience was seamless and professional from there on. Their staff was nice over the phone and they sent Paul within the hour. Paul was very pleasant & thorough with his diagnoses of the situation. You can tell he's very passionate about what he does, and very knowledgeable. He explained everything and answered all my questions in a way that I can understand. He was able to find the root of the leak and give me options for the types of repairs that can be made. Within couple hours, my leaky plumbing issue was fixed. I was very impressed with their services and recommend them to anyone in the area!

This review is long over due as we had City Plumbing and Rooter out to our place about 4 months ago to unclog a drain. I had to be sure and give these guys 5 stars as they cleared our drain in record time and also uncovered other major plumbing issues in our yard. The crews work was impeccable. They replaced my line and left my yard looking just as it did before they started their work. I will be recommending City Plumbing & Rooter to all of my family and friends.

City Plumbing and Rooter was great. We contacted them after 7:00 PM and they came out within 30 minutes on the same day. Excellent response from the beginning. We had a shower/tub combo that was not draining and received a quote and they came out and fixed our problem for the price quoted. Very professional and friendly. I highly recommend.

Paul and his crew were great! They came out on a Sunday to help us with a serious leak from the auto fill valve for our pool. They also assisted us by installing some shut off valves and regulators to reduce the water pressure. These guys were great, hard working and did great work.
