In our experience, we have seen the effect of time of the existing sewer and water infrastructure across Canada. Our mission is to renew and replace this aged infrastructure using Pipe Bursting in order to alleviate the risk and inconvenience to our environment and our population.

Pipe bursting to replace pipes without using open trench methods. This is accomplished by pulling a bursting device through the existing pipe which, by virtue of its size or its radial expansion capability, shatters the old pipe and forces the fragments into the surrounding soil. The new pipe is usually attached to the bursting device and is thus pulled into place as the device advances.

Pipe bursting is receiving more and more attention as a viable alternative to open trench replacement. Pipe bursting can be used for pipes ranging in size from 2 to 30 inches and new bursting tools and techniques are being developed that will increase the upper limit to 4 feet. The process can be used on pipes made of cast iron, thin wall steel, concrete, clay, asbestos, PVC, and polyethylene (PE)

Advantages of Using Pipe Bursting

  • It reduces overflow in wet weather and minimizes the need for bypass pumping.
  • Requires minimal excavation making it the preferred solution for installing new pipes in high-profile areas where disruption to surrounding businesses, residences, and environment is an important consideration.
