How Our NJ Pipe Bursting/Pipe pulling Service Works

trenchless sewer repairPipe bursting is designed to completely push out and eliminate severely damaged sections of sewer pipe, replacing it with a new pipe.

Our sewer company in NJ begins most sewer repairs with sewer video inspection, which confirms the nature and location of the problem.

A cable is then attached to a specialized piece of hydraulic or pneumatic machinery known as a bursting head. The bursting head has a conical shape, and fractures the old pipe apart completely. The back of the bursting pipe is connected to a new section of pipe.

As the old pipe is destroyed and pushed away, the new pipe is pulled along behind it.

There are several main types of pipe bursting used for trenchless sewer repair:

  • Pneumatic pipe bursting. Pneumatic pipe bursting uses pulsating air to burst the old pipe by driving the bursting head forward. This creates a repetitive “hammering” effect, with a winch cable keeping the head pressed against the wall of the pipe.
  • Hydraulic expansion. Hydraulic heads open and close as they move through the old pipe.
  • Static pull. This type of pipe bursting doesn’t involve specialized moving parts in the head; rather, it’s simply pulled though the pipe by a segmented drill rod assembly.

When is Pipe Bursting Used in NJ?

Pipe bursting, unlike pipe lining, is used for trenchless sewer line repair of pipes that are too damaged to simply be patched over with a liner. A typical repair job will involve replacing up to 400 meters of pipe, but pipe bursting has been completed successfully over much longer distances. In a few cases, soil which is too dense or below the water table can be an obstacle to successful pipe bursting, since significantly more force is required. Soil that’s too loose can also prove difficult, so when considering pipe bursting for sewer pipe repair, contractors will take soil qualities into account.
