One method of trenchless pipe replacement is pipe bursting. This non-intrusive method of repairing your pipes will have minimal impact on your landscape. Rather than digging out an entire section of your pavement or ground area, your plumbing professional will first create small holes at the beginning and end of the damaged pipe. Pipe bursting involves the use of a hydraulic machine. The damaged pipe will get broken up as new pipe is laid down. This trenchless pipe replacement method causes much less damage to the area surrounding the damaged pipe than the traditional method of pipe repair.
