Pipe replacement can seem like a huge headache. Traditional excavation pipe replacement requires digging a trench on your property the length of the damaged area. The process often leaves the property owner with reconstruction expenses associated with filling in the trench. However, our team at Snowbridge, Inc. utilizes trenchless pipe bursting technology to replace your pipe without the excavation.
What is Pipe Bursting?
Don’t let the name fool you! Pipe bursting is a modern technique for pipe replacement which eliminates the need for invasive trenches and heavy equipment. The pipe bursting process can be completed from a convenient location on your property. The necessary equipment is sent down your pipeline to the section that needs to be replaced. A drilling head is inserted into your pipes where it breaks apart the existing material and displaces it into the surrounding soil. Then a new, durable pipe is pulled into place and installed where the space was created.
Pipe bursting is the only type of trenchless pipe solution that will allow for the installation of a larger-diameter pipe. The convenient procedure can be performed on virtually any material of pipe, including outdated and decaying materials like Orangeburg or clay. We can use different techniques based on the diameter and contents of your pipe, so your knowledgeable Snowbridge Inc. technician can recommend the perfect solution for your home or business.
When Pipe Bursting is Needed
Pipe bursting is used in situations where your line is severely damaged or collapsed. We offer trenchless pipe repair methods, too, but sometimes the damage present in your system makes pipe replacement a more suitable option.
Plumbing can be damaged by misuse of your sinks, toilets, showers, or other fixtures. Improper usage can lead to a clog that puts added strain and pressure on your system. Particularly older homes may have pipes made out of fragile materials, or their plumbing system has simply fallen victim to corrosion or other natural deterioration.
Benefits of Trenchless Pipe Replacement
Pipe bursting has revolutionized the pipe replacement because of its minimally-invasive nature. By eliminating the need for digging an intrusive trench, our plumbing repair professionals are able to finish most pipe bursting procedures in a fraction of the time of traditional excavations.
With only small access points needed to complete your pipe replacement, pipe bursting will drastically reduce the overall impact to your property. Heavy equipment is not needed during the procedure, so our work area is much smaller and typically doesn’t intrude on your landscaping or other features. You won’t be stuck with expensive reconstruction costs or days of rebuilding after your repairs are completed. Our approach allows you to resume your daily routine as quickly as possible.
