New Technology

There is a revolution occurring in the replacement of sewer pipes and drain lines. Digging through your yard to repair a sewer lateral is becoming a thing of the past. With a small hole – about the size of a sidewalk square – at each end of the run, we can pull pipe from your home to the main line. And the run doesn't have to be a straight line because we can do up to three 45 degree bends in a single pull. We can even upsize a line from 4" to 6" to provide you greater line capacity.

How it Works

Pipe bursting is accomplished by pulling a bursting device through an existing pipe. This device shatters the old pipe and forces the fragments into the surrounding soil. The new pipe is attached to the bursting device and is thus pulled into place as the device advances.

Pipe Bursting and Trenchless Technology

Above: How to replace your hold or problem sewer pipe without tearing up your whole yard!

Getting Started

We diagnose the problem with FREE in-pipe video inspection.

  • The camera will verify location, condition, tie-ins if any, and the depth
  • It documents any problems with line, including sagging, roots, and/or breaks in the pipe
  • We then evaluate access for machinery and pipe bursting equipment
  • Locate Utilities
  • Set time line for the completion of the project

Advantages

  • Major excavation NOT required
  • Preserves your lawn, landscaping, patio, driveway and interior floor slab.
  • Fast and reliable
  • Less down time
  • Minimizes disruptions
  • Environmentally Safe
  • Proven Success
  • Save MONEY

How we replace your hold or problem sewer pipe without tearing up your whole yard:

  1. Small hole is excavated. New pipe is fused and fed through the old pipe.
  2. New pipe is attached to the bursting head which is pulled through the old pipe. The bursting head breaks up the old pipe while feeding the new pipe underground.
  3. Small hole is excavated and our Puller Unit is placed for operation.

Trenchless Sewer Repair

In the old days, breaking up your yard was hard to do. Now we just dig a small hole, replace the pipe, finish and clean up!
