Miami, Florida Trenchless Pipe Bursting
Your Florida home’s and your city municipal’s piping system for water and sewers are made from cast iron if it was constructed in the 70s. This means that your pipelines are about to fall apart and/or cause a major disruption. As you may have counted, this decade marks the 20 to 25th year of installation, which also means there will be residential and commercial properties in Miami, Florida who will be affected.
Trenchless Pipe Bursting
This type of trenchless technology becomes available only if trenchless pipelining is not a viable solution. In cases where there are not many pipes left to line a repair with, our plumbers turn to pipe bursting as the next best option.
Chances are, the pipes running from the main line to your sewer pipes are made from old piping materials such as cast iron, clay or a material called orangeburg. Sewer lines entirely made from PVC, plastic or any of the mentioned materials can benefit from the pipe bursting method in replacing old sewer pipes with newer, stronger and more durable ones.
A bursting head leads the charge as the new pipes are pulled along the ailing pipe. The old pipes are burst apart, with the fragments being thrown into the surrounding area. The new pipe trails behind the bursting head, forming the structure the old pipe left behind. The alignment is about the same as where the old pipe was, which makes it easier to connect the new pipe to the main water or sewer line.
How is this Sewer Repair Done?
An inspection of your sewer or water lines will be the first step our expert technicians make as soon as they arrive on your property. A high end, fiber optic camera is inserted into the suspect pipe and a visual inspection is made. When our plumbers know the exact reason for the water or sewer line issue, we will show it to you and recommend the quickest and the most effective solution. When the answer arrives on pipe bursting to replace the old pipes, then two small access points are dug on the ground.
The new pipe will be behind the bursting head as it is being pushed or pulled via the two access points. A powerful winch aids in the bursting process, making it a quicker method than most traditional plumbing solutions in the market. Once the new pipe is connected and the line restored, the two access points are then filled. Your property’s condition is perfectly preserved!
