Pipe Bursting Services in Tacoma, WA

Insta-Pipe - Pipe Bursting

Sometimes, no amount of slip lining or other repair efforts will save a failing pipe. If you do have to end up replacing the entire pipe, though, why not kill two birds with one stone? You don’t have to dig up the entire pipe, and you don’t even have to wait for the pipe to be removed before installing the new one. Pipe bursting is an incredibly effective way to get rid of failing pipe. It’s trenchless, as the remains of the pipe don’t actually need to be dug up and the new pipe at the same time, saving you time and installation costs

How Pipe Bursting Works

Pipe bursting is a method for both removing the old pipe and simultaneously installing its replacement. This is done by forcing a large expander head down the old pipe. The expander head breaks up the old pipe into fragments, and moves them out of the way. Even if the pipe is made of a harder material like iron or copper, it can be split by the expander head. As the head moves through the old pipe, it drags the new pipe along behind it. By the time the head reaches the end of the old pipe, the new pipe is already laid.

When to Schedule Pipe Bursting Services

Generally, pipe bursting is reserved for situations where the pipe is too far gone for any other solution to work. Usually, the pipe has corroded into uselessness, or is infested with so many tree roots that it can’t be cleaned out properly, or has so much lime scale buildup that it would be cheaper to replace the pipe entirely than to get rid of the deposits. These are the situations where pipe bursting shines. If you need to replace your pipe, you might as well do it as cost–effectively as possible.

Why You Should Schedule Pipe Bursting Services

There really isn’t a faster and more efficient way to accomplish both tasks at the same time. If you tried to accomplish the same thing without pipe bursting, it would take more time, more people, and quite a bit more money. This is why pipe bursting has been rapidly gaining in popularity among both plumbers and property owners.
