Trenchless Pipe Placement
Most people are unfamiliar with the term ‘Trenchless Pipe Replacement’. Some other names commonly used are “No-Dig”, “trenchless pipe rehabilitation”, “pipe breaking”, “Trenchless Technology” and “trenchless pipeline replacement”. No matter which name it is going by it simply means splitting an old, worn out pipe while inserting a new one …all at the same time!
The trenchless method installs the new pipe by pulling it through the old pipe, even if the existing pipe is collapsed, behind a special breaking head (or cone) that expands a clear channel ahead of the new pipe as it travels underground. One small pit is all that is necessary for most jobs in order to feed the new pipe into the ground … a compact but powerful pulling machine is located at the destination point, often inside a building, to pull the pipe in from the pit.
The operation is simple, requiring relatively few steps.
The first step is to determine where the line must begin and then end. Once determined, two small pits are dug, each approximately 24″ wide x 36″ and as deep as required for the particular job. One pit (the entry pit) will be used to feed the line, and the other (the pulling pit) will contain the pulling unit ready to pull the pipe through the ground.
*Please note that for the purposes of this brief description, “pipe” refers to the line being pulled no matter what type.
