Good Better Best Choices - 3 Colorful Arrow Signs

What Is The Difference Between Pipe Bursting And Pipe Lining?

To understand the difference between the two methods of pipe replacement, or as it may be better termed, pipe rehabilitation, it’s important to understand an essential commonality between the two: both methods are “trenchless.” This means that each method, bursting and lining, makes use of a single entry point. The chief advantage to this minimally-intrusive way of pipe renewal is that there is far less digging involved, and that means less inconvenience, less opportunity for anything to go wrong, less manpower…and in the end, less money spent.

Pipe Bursting

As with pipe lining (we’ll get to that in a moment), pipe bursting dispenses with the need for construction trenches. With pipe bursting, we dig an insertion pit and a receiving pit. That’s it for the digging. The “bursting” in pipe bursting refers to the tool we use. We insert an expanding device called an expander head into the existing pipe via the insertion pit. The expanding device breaks the defective pipe into many small pieces as it travels forward. We also attach new pipe to the back of the expander head, whose dual purpose is to both break the pipe as mentioned and also lay new pipe as it moves along.

Pipe Lining

Pipe lining is a little different, but depending on the situation may be the correct choice for repairing your problem sewer pipes. Like bursting, lining makes use of a single entry, but instead of breaking the existing pipe into small pieces, lining works with your existing pipes by installing an epoxy liner along the inside. In short, the epoxy solutions eventually harden and create a brand new pipe-within-a-pipe. Doing so significantly increases the flow characteristics of your drain pipe. This means that your pipes will flow better than ever!
