What We Do

Trenchless Pipe Solutions Performed by Pipe Bursting Experts

When you call Harts Plumbers, Electricians, & HVAC Technicians for a trenchless pipe solution for your sewer lines, our pipe bursting experts will arrive right away to dig up pipes that are cracked or broken and then run new pipes into areas that are not easily accessible, including under roadways, sidewalks, and your home. When bursting a pipe, we perform an expert pipe excavation before replacing the pipe with a brand new high-density polyethylene pipe. This type of pipe is non-toxic, environmentally sustainable, and resistant to corrosion and chemicals. Contact us today to discuss your sewer line options with a professional plumbing excavation contractor.

The Pipe Fusion Process by Pipe Bursting Technicians

Frequently, before a burst can take place, our pipe bursting technicians must first fuse several lengths of pipe to get the correct length. Pipe fusion is a simple process that involves using a heating element to melt and press two lengths of pipe together. The joint connecting the high-density polyethylene pipe, created with the pipe fuser, is stronger than the actual pipe itself. Once the correct length of pipe is achieved, the bursting head can be attached to the end.

How our pipe bursting experts get the job done right:

  • Bursting Head
    A bursting head is a semi-cone shaped tool (oftentimes with fins) that is used to break through an existing pipe. One end of it is attached to the new pipe, while the smaller end of the cone is attached to a cable that is run through the launching access hole. The unique shape and size of the bursting head, along with the hammering motion it makes, helps it break through the old pipe with ease.
  • Pulling Cable
    The bursting head is attached to the pulling cable. This cable must be strong enough to withstand being pulled through the old pipe by hydraulics.
  • Hydraulic Power Pack and Burster
    The hydraulic power pack is used to pull the cable, and consequently the bursting head. It is designed to pull the head in a hammering motion. This process will break up the original pipe to make way for the new one.

Pipe Bursting Preparation Procedure

Tim Paulk, our Lead Excavation Tech at Harts Plumbing explains the bursting preparation protocol for uncovering a main sewer pipe. Pipe bursting is a trenchless method of replacing buried pipelines (such as sewer, water, or natural-gas pipes) without the need for a traditional construction trench. “Launching and receiving pits” replace the trench needed by conventional pipe-laying.
