A failing lateral sewer line is often associated with a residence, but commercial properties have to contend with aging infrastructure as well. The effect at commercial properties can not only cause great inconvenience, but it can also cost a great deal in terms of lost time, business, wages, etc if the business has to shut down in order to make repairs.
The sewer line that runs from your house to the main sewer line is your responsibility so if it gets clogged, blocked, or gets a hole in it, as the homeowner in Grand Haven you’re required to find someone who can fix it. When sewer lines are laid, big trenches are made in the yard to place them in and the traditional way of fixing the lines is to dig up the lawn, garden beds, and anything else that might be over the top of them to access the entire pipe.
Grand Haven Hammerhead Trenchless Portaburst Lateral Bursting Systems
At West Michigan Septic Sewer and Drain Service, our trenchless sewer line repair, there are only two small holes dugout at each end of the pipe for access. This means there is less damage to the property, it’s quicker because large trenches don’t need to be dug.
During the trenchless sewer pipe installation, our highly trained technicians use the Hammerhead Trenchless Portaburst Lateral Bursting Systems in Grand Haven to hydraulically force the pipe through the existing pipe. The front end of the new pipe breaks away the old pipe in its tracks leaving the clay, concrete, iron, or plastic from the old pipe in the ground.
Static Pipe Bursting Systems Pipe Bursting Equipment
What is Pipe Bursting?
Pipe bursting is used to replace brittle pipes such as clay, asbestos cement, concrete, and cast iron by pulling through the host pipe a static or dynamic bursting head to fragment the existing pipe and an expander cone, sometimes incorporated in the bursting head, to push the fragments outwards into the surrounding ground. Simultaneously, a new pipe attached to the back of the bursting head is installed in the same alignment as the original pipe.
Capability: Static Pipe Bursting System
Burst and replace ductile iron and steel mains, along with all fracturable pipe materials with static pipe bursting equipment.
Overview: Static Bursting
Pulled by a hydraulic pipe bursting unit, the cutter head’s unique bladed cutting wheel design is an essential part. The bladed wheels actually split the host pipe instead of ripping or tearing it like single fin-type static pipe bursting systems. The bladed wheel system is a very “clean” process that requires less power than other static pipe bursting systems and helps prevent potential damage to the product pipe. An attached expander spreads and displaces the split pipe into the surrounding soil while simultaneously pulling in the new pipe.
