Trenchless Pipe Bursting Services in Henrico, VA

At Environmental Pipe Cleaning, it is our goal to provide Henrico, Virginia customers with the most effective sewer and drain pipe replacement services possible. Pipe bursting is a specialized method of pipe replacement. By using highly effective tools called the Grundocrack and the Grundowinch, pipe can be replaced without having to dig an unsightly and inconvenient trench along the entire length of the pipeline. Because there is minimal above ground damage to be repaired, pipe bursting is often the most cost effective trenchless pipe replacement solution for our Henrico customers.  

Trusted Pipe Replacement Services

Using a single entry point, such as a manhole, the Grundocrack is inserted into the faulty underground host pipe. It’s designed to hammer through the pipe’s interior with extreme, localized force in order to fracture the pipe material. The shards of pipe are pressed into the nearby soil as the Grundocrack moves along the line with the help of the Grundowinch. The Grundowinch is stationed at an exit point where it pulls the Grundocrach through the pipeline on a strong tether to ensure that the Grundocrack doesn’t get off track. At the same time the brand new pipe, usually made of High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), is pulled along behind the Grundocrack. These tools can handle pipes ranging in diameter from 4” to 36” which allows pipe bursting to be used in a variety of applications. And since the Grundocrack and Grundowinch can handle 150’ at a time, pipe bursting can easily be done over a total of 2000 lateral feet.

Benefits of Pipe Bursting for Your Henrico, VA Pipes

Pipe bursting is a great solution for plumbing issues that involve pipe deterioration or breakage beneath the surface. Because of the force used and the pipe fragments that result from the pipe bursting process, this method is not used on interior pipes. Because our tools can handle a wide variety of pipe diameters, pipe bursting can be used on residential, commercial, and municipal piping. Though pipe bursting can be done throughout the Henrico area, it’s especially useful in urban areas where concrete or blacktop may be covering the pipeline. Using this trenchless technology avoids the need for jackhammers and concrete repair, which can end up being both costly and disruptive. The whole process is completed with care and precision by our trained professionals, and it’s the only trenchless solution that allows for a larger pipe to be used than what was previously there.
