Trenchless Water Line Replacement Technology – How It Works
Pipe bursting is a trenchless method of replacing underground sewer, water, or natural gas pipelines without having to dig trenches throughout the yard. There is a launching and receiving pit dug where the new pipe is fed in and out, eliminating the need for full length trenches.
The pipe bursting machine is set in the receiving pit and is connected to the pipe at the entry via a cable. The machine pulls the new water pipe into the line. In the process of pulling the new pipe through, the old pipe is broken apart and the new pipe replaces it.
Once the new pipe has been pulled entirely through, our technicians connect the new water pipe to the water main line, the entry pits are filled back in, the city inspects the line to make sure everything meets code, and you’re back in business!
Why You Should Consider Trenchless
It can be difficult to make an accurate assessment regarding water line problems without excavating your property. However, excavating is a unsettling technique that can potentially cause damage to your property, and it is very labor intensive.
- Shorter project completion time
- No damage to landscaping and infrastructure
- Ideal for sewer and water lines
- Proven technology
Proactive Sewer & Drain can help you avoid this disruptive process with our Trenchless Water Line Repair and Replacement services. When the scenario is right, the trenchless method can be used instead of excavation. The trenchless “no dig” technology allows you to replace your water line without digging up your driveway, yard, landscaping, lawn and sidewalks.
Will Trenchless Work at Your Property?
Since there is no major excavation work being done, the trenchless method can be used in virtually any scenario. We have never encountered a situation where we could not perform a water line replacement using the trenchless system at a home or business.
