What is Trenchless Pipe Bursting?


Continuous use and age can cause even the most durable piping material to degrade over time. After decades of removing wastewater and delivering water to your home, the sewer line can develop cracks. Those small cracks can lead to weakening or a collapsed pipe. Traditional pipe repair work meant days of digging a trench through your yard to remove the old pipe and install a new line. Not only would you face the cost of pipe repair, but you would also be left with a hefty landscaping bill.

Fortunately, USA Pipe Repair uses an advanced pipe replacement method that eliminates the need for tearing up your yard. With trenchless pipe bursting, our technicians can replace underground pipes in a timely manner without days of digging.

Pipe bursting is a technique that allows our highly skilled technicians to eliminate the old pipe while simultaneously laying a new pipe in the path. With trenchless technologies, we’re able to complete this job with only two access holes rather than excavating your entire lawn. One access hole is used as an entry point for the bursting head. The head is guided through the old pipe, shattering it along the way and pushing pieces of the pipe into the surrounding soil. While breaking apart the old pipe, the bursting head is simultaneously leading the way and laying the new pipe. The newly laid pipe will last for decades.

Benefits of Non-Intrusive Pipe Repair for Your Richmond Property

Richmond pipe bursting is considered one of the most effective plumbing repair options for pipe replacement. The primary benefit of choosing pipe bursting over another repair option is there’s no loss of internal diameter for your pipes. The flow of water and waste won’t be restricted by smaller pipes. Secondly, the condition of the old pipe has virtually no effect on the pipe bursting process as it will be destroyed during the repair.
