Pipe Bursting Service for Tampa, Florida Homes and Businesses

Problem:

Need to replace an underground pipe when an open dig is impractical.

Solution:

Replace original pipe using the pipe bursting method.

Application:

The subject pipe must be underground or under slab cast-iron, PVC, terra cotta pipe.

This technology is used for replacing underground pipe when it is impractical to do an open trench. The process involves inserting a steel cable into the old pipe. The cable is coupled to a metal bursting head which is attached to the new pipe. A powerful hydraulic puller slowly draws the new pipe along, bursting the old pipe out of the way as it goes.

This method is unique because it automatically removes any bellies in the old pipe and can increase the pipeline’s diameter if desired by simply dragging in a bigger pipe. For instance, an old three- inch drain can be replaced with a six- inch new pipe for added capacity and flow.

This technology is highly cost-effective in heavily landscaped yards and commercial areas. It can save tens of thousands of dollars when replacing pipe inside of buildings by eliminating floor-cutting and disrupting business. It is also used for pipe replacement under asphalt parking lots and roadways.
