Sewer Pipe Bursting: A Trenchless Sewer Replacement Method

Sewer Pipe Bursting By Hoffmann Brothers In St Louis, MO

Sewer pipe bursting is a trenchless pipe replacement method that eliminates the need for excavation, minimizing the disruption to your property, inside and outside the home[1]. Unlike traditional excavation methods, which require digging up sections of your yard and basement, sewer pipe bursting offers a more efficient and less destructive solution.

Sewer and drain pipe bursting involves digging entry and exit points, one near your home’s foundation and the other near your property line. The new pipe is then mechanically pulled and burst through the old pipe underground.

Trenchless Pipe Bursting Benefits

The bursting replacement method offers multiple advantages over traditional trenching methods:

  • Minimizes property damage: Trenchless pipe bursting eliminates the need for extensive excavation, protecting your landscaping, driveway, yard, and possibly even your swimming pool from damage.
  • Saves time and money: Fewer labor risks and costs associated with yard excavation and significant savings by avoiding digging expenses
  • Long-lasting results:50 year pipe guarantee.

Determining if Sewer Bursting is Right for You

When choosing replacement options for your sewer, bursting is a suitable option for various types of sewer line repairs and replacements, including:

  • Cracked, bellied, or fully collapsed pipe: If your sewer line has developed cracks or even has fully collapsed, sewer bursting can often effectively replace and burst through the damaged sections.
  • Root invasion: Tree roots can infiltrate and damage sewer pipes, leading to blockages and potential sewage backups in your home. Bursting offers a long-lasting solution.
  • Sewer line material: If your home is over 30 years old and has cast iron or clay pipes, it may be time to look into replacement options before the line cracks or collapses.

If you are experiencing sewer line issues, it is crucial to contact a qualified plumber to assess the situation and determine the most appropriate repair or replacement methods. Sewer and drain professionals will evaluate the extent of the damage, the type of pipe material, and the locations of the sewer line to determine if pipe bursting is the best solution for your home’s needs.
