Before the new sewer line can be installed, two small holes are dug at either end of the sewer run. A cable is run through the sewer line, with a pneumatic jack at one end, and a pipe bursting head at the other end. The bursting head is attached to a new sewer pipe, and as the bursting head pulls through the old line, it both breaks up the old pipe, and pulls through a new sewer line.

Even cast iron can be replaced with this method!

Why do pipes burst?

Old sewer lines are susceptible to bursting because they are often made of cast iron and clay, which corrodes and cracks.

These old sewer lines eventually crack and fail to drain properly. Roots and debri make their way into old lines, and cause repeated obstructions. If your drains are constantly getting backed up, even after having been cleared, your sewer pipes my need replacing.

It’s best to handle this ASAP, to prevent contamination of the land on your property. Pipe bursting is particularly suitable for old pipes which have many broken spots.
