The passage of time brings about the inevitable to your sewer line system. Nearby trees grow and seek nourishment from the nearest water source. Land shifts can fracture and make your sewer pipes crack. Older materials such as clay pipe and orangeburg have an overdue lifespan. When all seems lost, trenchless technology saves the day by being a non-intrusive and efficient plumbing repair and replacement solution.

45th Parallel Plumbing uses the most advanced trenchless technology combined with excellent know-how in installing a new pipe through the broken one.

Better Technology

The introduction of trenchless technology changes everything. There’s no more guesswork involved. No restoration or picking up the pieces of your destroyed landscape. Having to dig up vast swaths of land is no longer necessary. Instead, all we have to do now is make 2 small access holes to replace your ailing pipe. You, your family, and your neighbor’s health and safety are all assured.

It’s called the pipe bursting process. Homeowners and business owners won’t be dealing with massive disruption when one of their sewer or water pipes collapse. You can save up to 80% on costs as compared to traditional plumbing replacement methods. What’s more, you can save up to a third of the time it takes to complete as well.

How We Do Pipe Bursting

All the action happens underneath the ground in a pipe bursting session. First, a high-end camera is affixed to a flexible fiber optic wire and fed down your sewer lines. From there, our expert technician does a visual inspection to see what caused the problem. Advanced imaging will show you exactly what’s going on inside your pipes.

45th Parallel Plumbing then draws up a solution that will best solve your sewer line issue. Once it is determined that pipe bursting is the best choice, we proceed to dig up two small access points, one at each end of the pipe line. A cable is put through the first and it comes out at the other end.

A pneumatic jack powers the whole thing. A bursting head is attached to the forefront. The cone-shaped device leads the charge, pulling along the HDPE pipe through the old existing line. As the new pipe travels along the old line, the bursting head breaks apart the old pipe while simultaneously placing the new one. The fragments are scattered in the surrounding soil.

Homeowners can choose whether to replace their old pipes with higher-capacity pipes or one that has a larger diameter than the existing one. Water and wastewater flow is improved, along with the HDPE’s innate ability to stave off corrosion, blockage, and root intrusion. Your new replacement pipe grants you the peace of mind of a tough, durable material that’s good for 50 years or more.
