Pipe Bursting Glen Allen, VA

Glen Allen Sewer and Drain Replacement

Pipe bursting is a useful means of replacing a faulty pipe without the need for destructive trench digging. Our team at Environmental Pipes Cleaning only provides our Glen Allen customers with trusted, professional, and safe methods of pipe replacement. By purposefully and carefully fracturing a pipeline beneath the surface, there’s no above-ground disruption required. Using specialized tools called the Grundocrack and the Grundowinch, our team of skilled experts can break and replace pipes with ease.

The Need for Pipe Bursting

Pipe bursting can be a great solution when deterioration or breakage occurs in underground pipelines, including sewer lines. Because of the force involved and the wreckage that ensues, pipe bursting cannot be used in interior plumbing, but rather on pipes below the surface. Though pipe bursting technology can be used throughout Glen Allen, it is an especially effective in urban and commercial settings. Using pipe bursting can avoid the need for jackhammers and concrete replacement when pipelines run beneath sidewalks, driveways, or roadways. However, any residential, commercial, and municipal property may be a candidate for the use of pipe bursting; our team will be able to recommend its usage once they arrive onsite.

How We Replace Your Glen Allen Sewer and Drain Pipes

Though the pipe bursting system is highly specialized, the steps to complete the process are quite simple. At an entry point (such as a manhole), the Grundocrack tool is inserted inside the pipeline. Once in place, it is equipped to hammer its way through the existing host pipe with incredibly effective force. The Grudowinch is placed at an exit point where at tether helps to guide the Grundocrack through the pipeline with care and precision. While simultaneously breaking up the pipe, the Grundocrack also pulls through a brand new replacement pipe, usually made of High Density Polyethylene (HDPE). This pipe bursting system is the only trenchless solution that makes it possible to actually insert a larger pipe in place of the existing faulty one. Because of the variable size of the equipment, pipe bursting can be used on lines with a diameter anywhere from 4” to 36”. And since the tools can handle up to 150’ at a time with ease, our team has used pipe bursting on lengths up to 2000 lateral feet.
