How it Works
Our pipe bursting technology allows you to replace and upsize underground pipe systems while avoiding the amount of excavation required by traditional methods. This no-dig process simultaneously inserts a new pipe in place of the old one with minimal surface disruption.

This is done with the use of a bursting head, which is attached to the front of a new pipe and leads the way by splitting open old pipes. These pipe fragments then create a new underground cavity that allows for larger pipes to be inserted in the location. This method not only saves you money but also:

  • Reduces damage to the site
  • Allows above ground traffic to flow as usual
  • Increases productivity and reduces job time
  • Provides a safer work environment
