What is Trenchless Piping?
Trenchless pipe fitting, also referred to as hydraulic pipe fitting or laying, is a method of pipe replacement that is implemented by digging two small holes at the beginning and end of existing pipe-works; and next, inserting a pipe bursting machine inside, in order to install new piping within the existing pipes, underground. So the first benefit of trenchless pipe installation is that there is no need for extensive digging. This reduces damage to landscapes and roadways, and saves utility and construction companies’ loads of time and labor. By guiding the new piping along the inside of the existing piping, with the help of pipe bursting machinery and technology, no digging is ever necessary!
Another great advantage to this new innovative piping technique is the significant reduction of community disturbance. This means roads, parks, sidewalks, backyards, parking lots, and more don’t have to be blocked off to the public for extensive periods of time for construction and excavation purposes. With traditional pipe replacement, the only way to access the existing pipe is to dig up the ground that buries it. This leads to messy, tedious, and disruptive construction sites. For commercial businesses, this can influence customer traffic and sales; while residential properties have to deal with loud machinery and unsightly dirt piles for weeks at a time.
Overall Advantages to Trenchless Pipe Work:• Easier and More Efficient
• Cuts Labor Costs
• Reduces Damages
• Eliminates the Need for Excessive Digging
• Much Faster than Traditional Methods
• Less Construction Noise
• Damages are Less Likely (i.e. pipes, cables, etc.)
• Les Delays in Project
