If you run a busy commercial business, you know all too well just how hard it can be to keep up with your facilities. There are many things to worry about on a commercial property. One area that you might be forgetting about is your sewer drain lines. Often times, only when something major happens and your toilets start backing up do you ever think about your drain. But when something major happens and you need to replace your sewer line, you should not panic. Today we are going to learn how a new process called commercial pipe bursting can help save you both time and money!
The Commercial Pipe Bursting Process
During the commercial pipe bursting process, there are several things that will take place. After the service technicians arrive at your location, they will begin setting up their equipment. They will then ask your permission to dig two small access holes. After they have excavated the holes, the process of pipe bursting will begin. Using the first downline access hole, a bursting head will be lowered into the existing sewer drain line. The head will then be pulled from the other access hole. As the bursting head is pulled along it breaks apart the old sewer pipe. The fragments are then pushed into the surrounding soil. Behind the bursting head will be a replacement sewer pipe. Once the bursting head has been removed, the pipe will then be attached to the building and the city sewer system completing the job.
The Benefits of Pipe Bursting
There are several benefits of commercial pipe bursting that you simply will not get using traditional replacement methods. Below is a list of these advantages that just might convince you to use this fairly new technology.
• No need for major digging: Unlike traditional methods of sewer pipe replacement which requires a massive hole to be dug, pipe bursting does not. As you have learned above, two small holes are all it takes to complete this process. With the high cost of excavation, this is very good news for your commercial business.
• It lasts for a very long time: When you have your sewer drain lines replaced with a new one, it will last a very long time. Because the replacement pipe will be made from a durable plastic material, it won’t rust or rot.
• You will save time and money: The process of pipe bursting can be completed in just one day which is always a great benefit. This means less downtime for your company and more money in your pocket. We all know that time is money when it comes to the business world.
• Your Commercial property will look great: Traditional methods of pipe replacement requires a large trench to be excavated. This will destroy your landscape and make your property look bad for many days. On the other hand, if you decide to go with the pipe bursting method, your property will remain looking great without the need to replace trees, shrubs or grass.
