Pipe Bursting is a technique for replacement of existing pipes. The existing pipe, once burst, becomes the guide path for the new pipe being installed.

This technique bursts the old pipe and in so doing displaces the fragmented old pipe into the surrounding soil. This creates a hole of roughly the same dimension as the original. If a larger diameter pipe is to be installed a larger 'expanding cone' is used to increase the size of the hole. Once done, the new pipe is pushed or pulled into position.
   
Trenchless pipe replacement simply means there is no requirement to dig a trench in order to install / replace underground pipes.

The chief benefits of this system are time reductions, cost efficiency and minimal damage to landscaping. Please see our section on pipe replacement for benefits and  more detailed information and examples.

A variation of this method is called 'Pipe Slitting' which breaks the pipe by longitudinal slitting.  

Our Pipe Genie System is the finest system available to replace your sewer or water lines without digging a trench or disrupting your landscaping, sidewalks or driveway!

Whatever kind of pipe you have installed, ductile, cast iron, clay, concrete, ABS, PE or PVC, our system can replace it with ease up to 30" in diameter.
