Lone Star Trenchless is proud to serve Benbrook, Texas residents and businesses, and to better serve you, we’ve invested in the latest trenchless sewer pipe bursting technology. This innovative solution can complete install a new sewer pipe without damaging your property, protecting the value of your home, and saving you thousands in repair costs.
Traditional Sewer Repairs Versus Trenchless Pipe Bursting
In the past, the only way to replace a damaged pipe was to fully expose it, disconnect it from the surrounding pipes, then remove it and install a new one in its place. With Benbrook’s tough clay soil, this process was often time consuming and required a lot of heavy equipment.
To bring area property owners another, better option, Lone Star Trenchless has invested in trenchless sewer pipe bursting technology, an innovative solution that makes it possible to fully remove and replace a failed sewer pipe without major excavation. Our method requires only two small holes, one at each end of the broken pipe to allow the tools to go through. The entire pipe is replaced without any trenching, saving you days of aggravation and hundreds or thousands of dollars in restoration costs.
Pipe bursting is designed to handle the toughest pipe replacement scenarios with efficiency and ease. We can replace pipes that run beneath hard-to-replace property features such as driveways, sidewalks, walls, even mature trees that have grown up above it. We can also replace pipes running below roadways or beneath concrete slabs for garages and patios. It is effective no matter how severely the old pipe is damaged, even if it is completely collapsed or fractured.
How Our No-Dig, Pipe Bursting Process Works
To complete your sewer line replacement with our pipe bursting technology, we begin by fully inspecting the sewer line to identify the areas of damage. We then dig two small holes, one at each access point to allow the pipe bursting tool to be inserted into the old pipe and removed after the installation is complete. A new high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe is attached to the back of the bursting head and the head is inserted into one end of the pipe.
Our technician then moves the bursting head carefully through the pipe, where it shatters the old pipe outward. If the pipe material is decomposable, such as cast iron or vitrified clay that are common in the Benbrook area, the pipe bits are left in place where they can dissolve harmlessly into the surrounding soil. If the old pipe is PVC or some other type of plastic, our tools can extract the shards for proper disposal.
As the bursting head moves, it pulls the HDPE pipe along behind it, essentially laying the pipe at the same time it’s removing the old one for an instant repair. After the new pipe is in place, we recut the connection opening with our remote cutting tool, reconnect it to neighboring pipes and refill the holes. The entire process only takes a day or two, causing little disruption to your household or business.
