Pipe Bursting Services

Pipe bursting is a trenchless method of replacing buried pipes including collapsed sewer lines, water, and gas lines without the need for a traditional construction trench.

Pipe bursting may also be used to replace smaller pipes with larger ones, also known as “upsizing”. Additionally, pipe bursting is a great way to replace orangeburg sewer lines!

We’re excited to be using this technology for our clients in the Cedar Rapids, Dubuque, Waterloo, and Iowa City areas.

How Does Pipe Bursting Work?

The process of pipe bursting includes breaking the old pipe while pulling the new pipe into place.

It might sound strange, but bursting pipes is actually a very effective method for repairing. Pipe bursting is a procedure of pipe repair, that doesn’t involve digging trenches, and is also great for replacing damaged orangeburg pipes. Our experienced team uses specialized tools to intentionally break the existing pipe using mechanically applied force. 

This results in pipe fragments being forced into the ground while pulling a new pipe in and replace the original one.

The Benefits of Pipe Bursting

Less Damage to the Job Site

Traditional pipe replacement requires heavy equipment to dig trenches on your property which requires time and money to repair. Pipe bursting avoids this type of invasion and mess!

Reduced Trench Settlement

When traditional trenches settle, pavement does too, which can cause damage that is unsightly and inconvenient to walk on. These problems are avoided using trenchless pipe replacement and repair.

More Environmentally Friendly

Traditionally digging up old pipes that contain unhealthy mold, asbestos, or other toxic substances can often contaminate the soil and groundwater. Pipe bursting reduces this concern.
