Pipe Bursting is the most effective form of trenchless pipe replacement. Using a pipe bursting machine, we can replace any existing pipe in the ground with a brand new pipe without digging a trench. It is also possible to upsize a pipe using the same method. This is the recomended way of replacing pipe when the pipe lays under lawns or landscape or pavement.
In situations where there is no existing pipe in the ground, piercing tools are used. These are sometimes refered to as missiles or moles. This method bores a hole in the ground which a pipe can be pulled through. These are common when the desired path of a pipe or utility line is under a no-dig area.
Trenchless Pipe lining is a a cured in place pipe . This method uses a resin-saturated felt tube made of polyester, fiberglass cloth suitable for resin impregnation, is inverted or pulled from access point. If there is root intrusion or a simple crack in the pipe, pipe lining is the way to go!
