What Is Trenchless Pipe Bursting?
When many people think of trenchless techniques, they typically imagine something like pipe lining, where a sleeve is fitted inside a problem pipe to rehabilitate it. However, for problems such as significantly damaged pipes, collapsed pipes, or even short sags or bellies, pipe lining simply doesn’t work. For advanced problems where an entire length of pipe has to go, Pipeshark recommends pipe bursting in Bryn Mawr, PA.
To put it simply, pipe bursting is a process where the old pipe is broken up and pushed aside as a new pipe is installed at the same time. With a trained and certified technician from one of the top pipe bursting contractors in Bryn Mawr, PA at the helm, it’s straightforward.
How Does Trenchless Pipe Bursting Work?
A steel cable is run through the old piping and a pipe bursting bullet-shaped head is attached to the cable. The new piping is then attached to the back of the pipe bursting head. A hydraulic cable puller then draws the bursting head through the old pipe breaking it up and installing the new pipe in its place.
