Common Causes of Collapsed Arlington Pipes
Your Arlington pipes can become extremely damaged or completely collapse for a number of reasons. Some of the more common reasons that your pipe may have collapsed include having a system made of older pipes, the ground shifting and settling, erosion around the pipe, or tree root invasion. If you happen to have old pipes, such as galvanized steel pipes or Orangeburg pipes, these are known for their problems with corroding and collapsing over time. What matters most when you have a collapsed pipe, is that you get it fixed as quickly as possible.
How Does Trenchless Pipe Bursting Work?
When you have a sewer pipe collapse, it is important to get the pipeline fixed as soon as possible. A collapsed pipe does not allow your system to drain properly as well as allows sewage to backup into your home or business. As soon as you notice any type of problem with your pipes, it is essential to call a professional right away. A pipe collapse could cause damage to all of the surrounding pipes, plus your Arlington property.
In order to safely and effectively replace your pipes, we create two access points to conduct trenchless pipe bursting services. We create one access point where the pipe starts, and one access point where the pipe ends. Through the initial access point, we will insert a bursting head with a new pipe attached to it and using hydraulic power, the bursting head will be moved through your existing pipe. As the bursting head is pushed through the pipeline, it will break your damaged pipe into small pieces and push them into the surrounding soil. Once the bursting head is pushed all of the way through the pipe, the bursting head will be removed, a brand-new pipe will be in its place, and the new pipe will be fitted to your existing system. Our team will inspect your pipe once more, and we will refill the access point, restoring your Arlington landscape.
