Pipe bursting is an ideal method for replacing pipes that are not candidates for Cured-In-Place-Pipes due to extensive deterioration or lines that may need to be upsized.

As of recently, the pipe bursting markets have been growing exponentially in the Rocky Mountain region. Technology advancements have allowed the progression of the process to become a less disruptive and a more cost effective alternative method for upsizing and size on size replacements.

This trenchless technology also provides a new pipe as opposed to a rehabilitation method. Pipe bursting can be completed for water, sewer, and storm sewer lines.
