TESTIMONIALS

“The pre-chlorinated pipe bursting technology is unparalleled to traditional replacement methods.  The technology proved to be customer friendly, efficient, aesthetically pleasing and less costly.”

Patrick A. Hogan, Utility Director City of Livonia, MI

 

“We commend your crews on the knowledge and skill demonstrated out on the pre-chlorinated pipe bursting project.  As this was the first pipe bursting project completed in the City of Austin, the additional time spent to educate and assist our personnel is greatly appreciated.”

Bimal Adhikary, Engineer Team Leader City of Austin, TX

 

"Reflecting back to the fall of 2005 when I became aware of the pre-chlorinated pipe bursting process through a site visit to your Fort Wayne, IN project, I recongnized the method had merit.  However, based on my first hand experiences with the Livonia project, I feel I can now fully endorse the pre-chlorinated pipe bursting method as a preferred method for water main replacement."

Daniel W. Mitchell, Principal Engineer Hubbell, Roth & Clark

 

"Throughout the project, many construction challenges arose.  Even with these challenges, your crews demonstrated their experience in static pipe bursting and continued until the project was completed."

Earl S. King III, Deputy Director of Utilities & Engineering City of Hallandale Beach, FL

 

"Please be advised that Mr. Andy Mayer of Murphy Pipeline Contractors is our lead instructor and adviser for the Flroida Sectional AWWA in our continued training program for Pre-chlorination.  Mr. Mayer has been instrumental in our Pre-chlorination efforts since 1999 when he first introduced the method.  Since then he has directed all projects across the state of Florida and has chaired all training sessions."

Larry J. Ruffin, Chairman FS/AWWA

 

"Murphy Pipeline Contractors has completed well over 1,000,000 linear feet of static pipe bursting using TT Technologies pipe bursting equipement over the past decade.  Their training and experience make them well qaulified on any pipe bursting project.  Andy Mayer has over 30 years of experience in the underground construction industry.  He was involved in the beginning of the actual inventing of pipe bursting while working for British Gas in England.  After starting his pipe bursting career in London, Andy moved from the U.K. to the United States in 1999 and has been a leader of the US pipe bursting industry.  In particular, he is the undisputed pioneer of introducing the pre-chlorinated pipe bursting method to water companies in the United States and Canada."

Christian J. Brahler, President/CEO TT Technologies, Inc.

 

"Without a doubt pipe bursting is the most cost effective, least disruptive and efficient way to upgrade and replace deteriorating infrastructure. I can't thank Todd and Andy enough for introducing us to pipe bursting and the support in getting started and assistance over the years with the cities program."
Craig Campbell, Deputy Assistant Utility Director City of Winter Park, FL
"I want you to know how impressed I am with Murphy Pipeline and their employees. They started on the other side of the neighborhood, so I was able to watch them progress closer to my house.  I was impressed by their work and cleanliness. I was shocked at the level of perfection shown by them is why I am writing you this letter.  If every company was as professional as they are, this would be a different world."
Matthew Clark, Resident/Homeowner in Maitland, FL
