Pipe Bursting: The Ultimate Solution to Avoid Digging Up Trenches
Pipe leakage is a common and a serious problem a homeowner faces. It can result in basement flooding, damages to your home, and health problems.
Replacing pipes is strenuous work—the traditional method at least. It is costly and time consuming. However, there is a better way to replace pipes without having to digging up trenches—pipe bursting.
How it Works?
Pipe bursting, as the name suggests, involves bursting of old and worn out pipes. The way it works is two holes are cultivated on either side of the pipe; one end is attached to a pipe bursting device, while on the other end, there is a pull rod attached to the device.
The pipe bursting device also has the new pipe attached to it. The device is then passed from one side to the other. The device bursts the old pipe and pulls up the new in its place.
This method is a whole lot more convenient for replacing water lines, sewer lines, and drainage lines, without having to mess up the area.
Here are some of the benefits of pipe bursting:
Requires less manpower
Digging trenches is not an easy task. It requires heavy machinery as well as back breaking labor. Since pipe bursting requires no digging, there is no need for heavy machinery.
Doesn’t cause damage to property
Digging up trenches can cause a lot of damages to trees. In some cases, your property may sustain some damages as well.
It is extremely cost-efficient, because it saves professionals the hassle of extracting, laying and then filling the trench. In the traditional method, you might also need to spend money on clearing up afterwards. In case your lawn is affected, you will need to spend on landscapers, soil, plants, etc.
Digging up trenches exposes you to a lot more health issues, such as mold and asbestos that resides underground. It also makes your water supply vulnerable to contamination.
It improves your plumbing
In the pipe bursting method, you either get the same or bigger size pipe. This improves your plumbing system in general.
