No-Dig Pipe Replacement Services in Bellevue

The newest form of trenchless technology is one that replaces ailing pipes with a stronger HDPE material. No digging means you won’t have to spend days or weeks without service or cancel business operations. Our technicians in Bellevue are fully trained in the pipe bursting procedure; with the latest tools and equipment, we can complete most plumbing emergencies in a day. This means you won’t have to spend as much time or money to dig up the land and put it back via landscaping services.

The trenchless procedure requires two small access points which will serve as the exit and entry point for the new HDPE pipe. At Full Bore Trenchless, we use advanced pneumatic and lateral bursting equipment in order to be able to address problems of any size and difficulty. For heavy soil, the pneumatic equipment will be able to work and have the new pipe installed to the proper location without an exit point required. Static bursting is done mostly in sandy ground or when there’s heavy root intrusion or collapsed lines. Our equipment can split ductile iron or steel pipe material via special cutters to complete the replacement.

For pipe bursting, our professional technicians in Bellevue use a conical bursting head to split the existing pipe and send the remains to the surrounding soil. A larger-sized, new pipe is dragged along the same line, saving more time in the process. The new HDPE material is resistant against common pipe problems such as cracking, leaking, corrosion, calcified buildup and root intrusion. Moreover, you can expect the new pipe to last for a good 40 years or more.

Pipe Bursting Applications

Pipe bursting is compatible with many pipe replacement applications, including:

  • Potable or Raw Water
  • Culverts
  • Drains and Sewers

It’s the ideal solution when there’s difficulty creating or finding access points, i.e., when the break is located at highways, waterways, sidewalks and landscaped yards.

Pipe bursting can also be used to improve flow and system efficiency as a bigger sized pipe can seamlessly fit in a process called “upsizing”. The larger diameter size carries a higher capacity and can improve flow without additional problems.
