Repair Sewer Lines with Pipe Bursting

Pipe Bursting

Affordable Plumbing & Heat utilizes the most advanced pipe bursting technology to repair broken, cracked, or failing sewer lines. Pipe bursting is a great alternative to completely excavating a damaged pipe because it requires no open trench and is therefore much more cost effective.

Affordable Plumbing and Heat has the technology to use trenchless methods like pipe bursting to repair commercial and residential sewer lines. We have reliable and innovative pipe bursting systems. No two projects are the same. Our dedicated team of experts will work with you in order to develop customized solutions to meet your needs. Professional pipe bursting is often considered the “final solution” for severely damaged and fully compromised sewer systems.

As the animation above demonstrates, pipe bursting, uses a launching and a receiving pit to repair damaged sewer lines and there is no need for backhoes and other costly excavation equipment and repair.

Most often pipe bursting is used when the original sewer line has become so overcome by age and deterioration that it no longer can handle the capacity it was designed to sustain.

Why use Pipe Bursting?

Pipe Bursting is an effective and affordable way to replace damaged sewer lines. Some minor excavation may be necessary so that our technicians and plumbers can gain access to the existing sewer line. Once our work is complete your sewer line will be completely repaired and will also meet all current city codes. This is an important fact since many of the sewer lines in our area are over 100 years old and therefore have never been brought up to current city code standards.

More efficient and safer than traditional digging replacement operations, today’s trenchless pipe bursting methods make use of mechanically applied force and high-grade bursting heads.

We utilize this method whenever possible to repair sewer lines because instead of digging to create a trench and excavating the land, we only have to create less damaging launching and receiving pits. Trenchless pipe bursting is significantly more efficient than traditional digging replacement. It is also safer and more cost effective.

Our tools are designed to handle even the toughest pipe bursting jobs with exceptional performance with features that you will not find on competitive models.

Pipe bursting is an environmentally friendly project because it reduces the amount of excavation and associated surface disruption.
