This method of repair uses a bursting head that moves through the damaged sewer. A new pipe is attached to the head and pulled through the old sewer pipe. The old pipe is broken down and pushed out of the way and the new one is laid simultaneously. While some excavation is required, it’s limited to two small holes, one at the entry and another at the exit. Pipe bursting is also ideal for trenchless sewer replacement in Marietta, GA.
Cured-in-Place Pipelining (CIPP)
This type of trenchless pipe replacement in Marietta, GA uses an epoxy to reinforce the inside of a broken pipe. We use a tool that expands the liner and allows it to conform to the pipe's walls, fixing any leaks or cracks. For CIPP to be successful, however, the existing pipe must still be stable enough to support the new one, so it’s not an option for heavily damaged pipes.
This is the oldest method of trenchless pipe lining in Marietta, GA. It involves putting a plastic lining material into the existing pipe. This material conforms to the pipe but decreases the pipe's diameter. This method of repair only requires two pits to be excavated, one for the entry and one for the exit. Slip lining is an excellent solution for pipes with minor damage.
