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.

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.
