The pipe bursting method of trenchless technology involves pulling a new pipe through the damaged water or sewer pipe. The new pipe, which is made of polyethylene, is pulled through the damaged pipe using a high powered pulling machine, while concurrently breaking the outer pipe. Pipe bursting normally requires access holes at both ends of the pipe to be replaced. The new polyethylene (PE) pipe is electro-fused in sections to become one continuous whole, seamless line. PE pipe is much smoother, more resistant to abrasion, and will not be damaged by microbiologically induced or chemical corrosion. The benefits to pipe bursting include fewer labor hours, undisrupted property, and easier clean up as well.
Clog Pro happily offers directional drilling as a method of trenchless sewer and water pipe replacement. Directional drilling enables us to drill through all types of soil, without causing any disturbance to natural habitats, gardens, walkways, sidewalks or play areas. This technology allows us to replace your damaged water or sewer pipes quickly and efficiently while being environmentally friendly, resulting in the least amount of disruption to your home’s surrounding areas.
Trenchless Pipe Replacement
Trenchless pipe replacement is a relatively new technology in plumbing that can be used for both water line replacement and sewer line replacement. This technology began to be used in residential plumbing decades ago, but many homeowners do not know of its existence.
The basic concept of trenchless technology is that precision drilling is used to locate where the plumbing pipe is located, and then a new pipe made of polyethylene is pulled through the old pipe using a special machine. In the Portland, Oregon, and Vancouver, Washington metropolitan areas, Clog Pro provides expert water line replacement and sewer line replacement services using trenchless technology.
Here are some benefits of using trenchless pipe replacement:
- It’s usually cheaper than digging up pipes because fewer hours of labor are needed.
- It’s less invasive than digging and does less damage to yards and landscaping.
- It doesn’t leave a large mess to clean up.
How Does Trenchless Pipe Replacement Work?
Directional drilling is used in both water line replacement and sewer line replacement. This is a method of drilling that is extremely precise and can be done in all types of soil as well as through rock. It can be done near flower beds, sidewalks, etc. without causing damage.
Pipe bursting is the term used to describe the installation of polyethylene pipe right where the damaged pipe was located. A pulling machine breaks the old pipe while simultaneously pulling the new polyethylene pipe through. The individual sections of the new polyethylene pipe are fused so that they become a single, seamless pipe. This makes it less susceptible to breaks. Moreover, pipes made of polyethylene are less susceptible to damage from chemicals and microbes than pipes made of other material.
