Sewer lines that have been severely crushed, have become broken and segmented over time, or that incorporate numerous bends and connections may not be suitable for pipe relining or other similar repair techniques. In those cases, trenchless pipe bursting in Philadelphia, PA, may be a viable option for replacing the damaged pipe.
Trenchless pipe bursting requires a series of small pits to be excavated but does not necessitate a long, continuous trench to completely uncover the entire length of the pipe. This means that pipe bursting technology in Philadelphia, PA, is also an excellent solution for replacing a damaged pipe that runs under a building or roadway or that is located in a similarly inaccessible area.
What Steps are Involved in the Trenchless Pipe Bursting Process?
At Pipeshark, our trenchless pipe bursting services in Philadelphia, PA, are performed by destroying the old, damaged pipe with a drill bit as a new pipe is pulled in behind it. The pieces of the old pipe are pushed aside into the surrounding soil to make room for the replacement pipe, and the soil then settles back into place.
The procedure is conducted by our pipe bursting contractors in Philadelphia, PA, using a small pit on each end of the pipe for staging the necessary equipment and may also require one or more holes along the path of the new pipe used to gauge the depth and direction of the drilling equipment for proper placement.
