Advantages of Pipe Bursting
As a "no-dig process", pipe bursting is the perfect solution for a municipality looking to increase the capacity of its water supply pipes or to replace corroded and leaking sewer pipes. All of this is possible without extensive excavation and all the other costs of surface restoration. Because its trenchless, pipe bursting is the preferred method for replacing old pipes in urban areas where disruption to surrounding utilities, local residences, businesses and the environment are a consideration. An added benefit of using HDPE plastic pipe for pipe bursting is its suitability for non-pressure applications like sewer lines. Because of its smooth inner walls, HDPE pipe assures high gravity flow rates and minimizes the chances of developing stoppages.
