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.
