Static Pipe Bursting for 2" through 24" water & force main replacement

Replacing water mains in urban areas presents challenges to all stakeholders. Easement issues, street closures, traffic congestion, disturbing surface works and customer inconvenience are all areas of concern that communities must address.


City administrators, engineers and residents are starting to demand more efficient and less disruptive methods of replacement to ease these concerns.  As water pipelines are coming to an end of their useful life, replacement methods such as pre-chlorinated pipe bursting are being selected to add value to all stakeholders involved.  Static pipe bursting is also being utilized to replace force main pipelines due to the many advantages of the trenchless technology.
