Sewer pipes on the ground awaiting installationIf you’re having trouble with your residential or business property sewer line, you may need repairs. One possible solution is sewer pipe bursting. Trained technicians use this trenchless sewer repair method to replace old or damaged pipes without extensive excavation. Restore safe wastewater flow from your house or company while minimizing disruption and mess. Arrow Sewer & Drain performs pipe bursting services for sewer line repairs throughout north and central New Jersey, including Somerset and Middlesex counties. Here, we explain the pipe-bursting method.

What Is the Pipe-Bursting Method?

This trenchless sewer repair method uses modern robotics to insert a new pipe where the old, damaged pipes are laid. Arrow Sewer & Drain uses state-of-the-art equipment to help make the process as efficient as possible. This method works with most pipes, including clay, cast iron, concrete, plastic, copper, and fiberglass. There are no chemicals used in sewer pipe bursting, and the process doesn’t generate any fumes. It’s usually a quick fix, too, with most procedures taking just one or two days to complete.

How Is Pipe Bursting Performed?

We start by using a camera inserted into the sewer pipe system to examine the condition of the existing pipe. By discovering where blockages are located and the layout of the old pipe, technicians can determine the best way to approach the job of pipe bursting to replace the sewer pipe system. Once the plan has been set, Arrow Sewer & Drain can get to work. A small amount of digging opens up access at either end of the project.

The new pipe, of the same or similar diameter, is pulled through the existing pipe using robotics. A specialized head placed on the end of the pipe helps break open the old pipe, which is pushed aside by the new pipe. Once the new pipe is laid in place, wastewater service can be restored, and home and business owners can resume normal activity.
