Residential Commercial Pipe Bursting

At Full Bore Trenchless Inc., we offer Seattle and the surrounding areas state-of-the-art pipe replacement services that customers can count on. Our team understands that needing your pipes replaced is rarely a positive thing and, normally, needing pipe replacement is out of home or business owner’s control. Residential, commercial, and municipal pipes are used constantly to allow water, gas, oil, and waste to flow into and away from structures which makes your pipes more susceptible to damages. At Full Bore Trenchless Inc., it is our goal to give customers a positive pipe replacement experience that leaves them satisfied with their results.

Sewer Camera Inspection in Washington

Before our team at Full Bore Trenchless begins the replacement process the areas and pipes need to be inspected. If your pipes are being replace by open trench excavation, the area will be inspected to make sure that it is safe, and it is up to the city’s expectations for pipe excavations. The interior of your pipes do not need to be inspected for excavation because our team will be able to see pipe problems as soon as trenches are dug. If your pipes are being replaced with pipe bursting, sewer and drain camera inspections will be performed to check the interior of your pipeline. Sewer camera inspections involve a high-resolution, waterproof camera being inserted into your drain via a flexible rod to provide our team with a real-time view of your pipeline. Both methods of inspection will either reveal a severely damaged or completely collapsed pipes.

Methods of Pipe Replacement

At Full Bore Trenchless Inc., we offer two methods of pipe replacement: open trench excavation and trenchless pipe bursting. Both methods are viable solutions for pipe repair, and their use depends on what is best for your residential, commercial, or municipal property.

Open Trench Excavation

While open trench excavation is a traditional method of pipe replacement, it is one that has been around for decades and allows our team to fully replace pipelines with care and attention to detail. Open trench excavation involves trenches being dug above your pipelines to provide clear access to remove your existing pipes and replace them with brand-new pipes. The open trench excavation process takes a few days to a few weeks depending on the size of the system, but it allows for careful attention to the replacement of your system and even allows customers to oversee the process.

Pipe Bursting in Seattle, WA

Trenchless pipe bursting is a replacement service that does not require trenches to be dug to access pipelines. Pipe bursting requires two access points: one for the entry of the bursting head and new pipe and one for the exit of the bursting head. The process involves a new pipe with a special bursting head attached to it moving through your existing pipe and breaking it up into little pieces, pushing it into the surrounding soil. When the bursting head has moved all the way through your existing pipe, it will have replaced it with a brand-new pipe. Our team will then remove the bursting head and fit the new pipe to your other pipes.
