Misconceptions About Pipe Bursting

drain cleaning in Newton, MA

Pipe bursting is a method of replacing underground pipes that do not require excavation. It entails forcing a bursting head through the old pipe, breaking it apart, and pushing it out of the way, while simultaneously pulling in a new pipe to replace it. While this procedure can be extremely effective, there are also several misconceptions surrounding this method of trenchless pipe lining in Worcester, MA. New England Pipe Restoration debunks these below:

Pipe Bursting is Not Ideal for All Pipes

One common misconception is that pipe bursting can only be used for small-diameter pipes. Like CIPP pipe lining, pipe bursting can be used for all sizes, from small residential to large commercial and industrial pipes.

Another misconception is that pipe bursting is only suitable for certain types of pipes. While it is true that pipe bursting is most commonly used for replacing old, damaged, or broken pipes made of materials such as clay, concrete, and PVC, it can also be used to replace other types of pipes, such as steel and cast iron pipe lining.

Pipe Bursting is an Invasive Process

A third misconception is that pipe bursting is a highly invasive and disruptive process. Pipe bursting is a relatively non-invasive method of pipe replacement as it does not require excavation and only causes minimal disruption to the surrounding area.

Pipe Bursting Can Only Be Done When the Pipe is Severely Damaged

Another misconception is that sewer pipe lining is only suitable for pipes that need to be in better condition. In reality, pipe bursting can be used to replace pipes in good condition, upgrade to a more durable material, or increase the diameter of the pipes for increased flow capacity.

Pipe Bursting is Unreliable

Finally, some people may believe that pipe bursting is a new technology and, therefore, unreliable. However, this method has been used by pipe lining companies for over 30 years and has proven to be a safe and effective method of replacing underground pipes.

Pipe bursting is a highly effective and efficient method of replacing underground pipes without excavation. It works for pipelines of all sizes and materials, is non-invasive, and takes a fraction of the time it would take to replace them using standard excavation methods.
