Understanding Pipe Bursting

Understanding Pipe Bursting

Pipe bursting is a minimally invasive trenchless pipe replacement technology that involves fracturing the old, damaged pipe and driving in a new high-density polyethene pipe. No digging is involved, and no chemicals are added, meaning no mess and no further damage. If you are considering investing in this sustainable method of trenchless sewer repair in Everett, WA, Nu Flow AK can help.

Here is a basic guide to help you get a better understanding of how this trenchless pipe replacement method works.

Equipment Used in Trenchless Sewer Replacement

Trenchless pipe bursting is an effective and reliable technology for replacing cast iron, PVC, and clay pipes. The method involves introducing special equipment known as an expander head into the old and faulty pipe. We then push the expander head through the damaged pipe, fracturing it into pieces to make room for the new replacement pipe.

How Long Does the Pipe Bursting Process Take?

One of the leading advantages of any trenchless sewer replacement service is that it can be completed within a few hours or half a day at most in some cases. This is primarily because the digging process is eliminated, allowing our crew to start the project right away.

How Much Do Pipe Bursting Services Cost?

The cost of our pipe bursting service depends on a variety of factors. However, to get the trenchless pipe repair quotes, the standard way of calculation is to multiply the going rate of the pipe by the total number of pipes used measured in feet. We also consider the extent of the damage and the complexity of the rehabilitation steps we have to carry out, plus the equipment that we used for the job. And of course, we factor in labor costs.

We try to keep the cost of services as reasonable as possible, and you can rest assured that you are truly getting your money’s worth. Contact Nu Flow AK today to schedule an appointment.
