When you learn that your underground pipes need to be replaced, you’re probably wrought with worry thinking about the cost, the mess, and the inconvenience that you’re going to have to contend with. Thanks to advances in modern plumbing, however, there’s a better way to replace those damaged underground pipes, and it’s known as pipe bursting.
Pipe bursting is an innovative way to replace underground sewer and pipe lines. The method involves digging out the damaged pipe into small pieces and replacing those pieces with new ones. First, two small holes are dug into the ground on either side of the pipe that has to be replaced. Next, a metal cone is interested into one of the holes and pulled through the existing pipe. As the metal cone passes through the pipe, a new one is pulled behind it; hence why this method is also referred to as “pulled-in-place” pipe installation. Once the new pipe is in place, it is connected to the water or sewer main or water line and the holes in the ground are filled.
Pipe bursting offers several benefits over traditional underground pipe replacement. For one thing, because there’s no excavation involved, it’s much less invasive and much less destructive. This means that landscaping, hardscaping, and other above-ground structures aren’t disturbed. Another major benefit of pipe bursting is that, unlike traditional methods of replacing damaged water and sewer lines, there’s no foul odor to deal with. It’s also a much faster and safer method, and because the new pipes are comprised of either PVC or high-density polyethylene (HDPE), materials that are much more durable than clay and cast iron pipes, the results are long-lasting.
In addition to the above-mentioned benefits, pipe bursting is more cost-effective than traditional underground pipe replacement methods. Since there’s no excavation and there’s minimal disruption to above-ground surfaces and structures, which eliminates additional repair costs. Furthermore, the fact that it’s a faster and safer method helps to keep the costs down, too. With so many benefits, it’s easy to see why pipe bursting is the method that Long Island Sewer and Water Main uses to replace damaged pipes, and why this innovative approach is preferred among Long Island property owners.
