Trenchless Sewer Repair: Pipe Bursting
Pipe bursting is a trenchless method of sewer repair or replacement that involves breaking up the existing pipe and replacing it with a new one. This method is typically used for pipes that are cracked, corroded, or otherwise damaged. When repairing sewers, new high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipes are installed alongside the current subterranean sewer line while it is being broken and expanded. No additional chemicals or other impurities are needed. This makes pipe bursting a particularly sustainable way of replacing sewers because of its extended lifespan and the use of ecologically friendly HDPE pipes.
Pipe bursting can be an effective way to repair or replace a sewer line without causing major damage to the surrounding landscape. However, this method can be more expensive than traditional methods, and it may require special equipment and training.
Benefits of Pipe Bursting
It requires less labor.
Since pipe bursting is a trenchless operation, there is no need to run heavy gear to dig up a lot of dirt, so it requires less effort overall. Contractors find this to their advantage as they no longer need to do the backbreaking work of shoveling dirt to get your project done.
Less Damage Results from Pipe Bursting
In addition, pipe bursting results in less damage to the area you’re working in, requiring less cleanup and less repair when the line has been fixed. In relation to this, we’d also want to stress that pipe bursting is a more eco-friendly method than other, more traditional forms of pipe repair. It is very uncommon for poisonous materials to be handled during excavation, and since there is no digging involved, there is little chance that these materials will end up in the water supply or anywhere else on the surface of the ground.
Pipe Bursting Is Safe
It’s a fact that excavations aren’t very safe. When you dig out mold and asbestos, which are dangerous substances that frequently live underground, you obviously put your health at risk. As a result, when you opt for the pipe bursting method, You avoid danger since the earth will not be dug up.
Pipe Bursting Is Associated With Higher Productivity
You may spend more time performing the necessary tasks more precisely and successfully since you are not spending as much time excavating and cleaning up your mess. Depending on the task, of course, pipe bursting techniques can repair up to 200 meters of pipe every day. This would mean that the project could be completed in less time and at a faster rate while maintaining quality.
Cost of Pipe Bursting Repair
There are lots of factors that affect the overall cost of repairing your sewer with pipe bursting. This includes the extent of damage, the duration of the project, the location, and, inevitably, the contractor’s labor costs. However, on average pipe bursting will cost about $60 to $200 per foot, so you can be sure that you will pay somewhere in the range of $3,500 to $20,000. Since pipe bursting entails replacing your pipes, this amount will likely go higher or lower depending on the length of the damaged pipe and how deep it goes.
Trenchless Sewer Repair: Cured In-Place Pipe Lining
CIPP is a trenchless sewer repair method that can often provide long-lasting results. In CIPP, a flexible liner is inserted within an already-existing pipe, inflated, and then dried and hardened inside the pipe by exposure to heat or UV radiation. In essence, the pipe’s current surface is created within the liner, giving it a smooth appearance that makes it look almost brand new.
Benefits of Cured in-place Lining
Compared to other sewer repair techniques, it involves little to no digging and takes a lot less time to accomplish.
More Effective Flows
Smooth and enduring, CIPP lining makes it simple for liquids and small amounts of solids to pass through the pipes. Nothing can catch on to the debris or cause it to slow down.
Limited Workforce and Equipment Requirements
A sizable crew of employees is not required for pipe maintenance. Furthermore, no huge machinery is required! About 2 employees can finish the job swiftly and efficiently.
