Jim Dandy Sewer & Plumbing - Pipe Bursting
At Jim Dandy Sewer & Plumbing, we offer a wide range of innovative solutions ranging from hydro jetting to sewer camera inspections, no-dig repair and replacements for residents and business owners in Bellevue, Washington who are facing plumbing emergencies. Our sewer line inspection captures a snapshot of the state of your sewer lines in order to determine the source of the problem. If the pipes are far too damaged to be repaired using CIPP, then our technicians will recommend the next level of trenchless technology, also known as pipe bursting.
What Is Pipe Bursting? How Does It Work?
Pipe bursting is a pipe replacement method via a no dig solution. If the pipes are severely damaged and there's little to no structure left for the relining to work on, then our expert technicians recommend this technology. Two access points are made, one for the entry and the other serves as the exit area. A high-strength cable is inserted into the sewer system, and a conical bursting head is attached at the forefront.
The line is dragged from one point to the next, effectively disintegrating the broken pipe and sending the remains to the adjacent soil. The end result is a new pipe that's on the exact same position as the old one. Moreover, the new pipe material is much more durable than the old one in many ways. First, the seamless feature makes it hard for tree roots to get inside your line. The material is resistant to corrosion and calcified matter buildup; flow is much improved, and best of all, your new pipes are expected to last a good 50 years or so. Our expert technicians ensure that the new pipe is fitted in exactly where it should be to prevent complications.
Pipe Bursting Applications
Pipe bursting technology is recommended for sewer pipes and drain lines. It's often the final solution when it comes to severely compromised or damaged systems. It's best used to rehabilitate utility lines such as power lines, water lines, telephone and gas lines in congested areas such as sidewalks, roads, municipalities and city centers.
Common piping materials such as clay, concrete and iron are split apart; pipe bursting works regardless of pipe diameter, size and function. Our technicians can use pipe bursting to "upsize" lines, or make the diameter bigger than they were.
A Greener Choice
At Jim Dandy Sewer & Plumbing we believe in making the earth better by being responsible. As such, we use caution and utilize only green equipment and processes to leave the least amount of carbon footprint on the environment. Trenchless technology in itself is the greener choice for sewer line repairs, with pipe bursting being a non-invasive sewer replacement.
All the tools and equipment we use are rated green and score low on emission tests. Since there's virtually zero digging, there's less risk of groundwater contamination and toxic materials rising to the surface. The HDPE material itself is eco-friendly and is a very sustainable solution.
Most of our trenchless services in Bellevue can be completed within a day. You'll be able to turn on your water main and enjoy the rest of the day without worrying about recurring problems and repairs. Call us today!
