Pipe bursting diagram - Roto-Rooter Cedar City & St. George, UT


If you want your home or business’s plumbing to operate in top condition, you must have clear-flowing pipes. Though, depending on the age of pipes, pipe conditions, soil conditions and weather conditions, many problems can arise.

The chances of pipes bursting during the colder months drastically increases. In fact, cracks in pipes can happen regardless of the material they’re made from — plastic, copper or steel. A pipe burst can release hundreds of gallons of water in a single day resulting in perhaps a catastrophic mess.

Fortunately, Athens Roto-Rooter Plumbers offers pipe repairs you need to get your plumbing back in working condition. So, when you find out that your home or business has some problems with pipes, don’t panic. By contacting Athens Roto-Rooter Plumbers in an emergency, we’ll have your plumbing back online as soon as can be. Our experienced, certified and well-trained plumbers have the tools and know-how to repair leaks or even install new pipes.

Moreover, we offer all the repairs you may possibly need for a pipe burst, and we offer water damage restoration services to help with mitigating water problems.

How Does Pipe Bursting Work in Utah?

You’re probably wondering how trenchless pipe bursting works.

First, we use video camera inspection to get a better look at your sewer pipes and locate the damage. Once we determine that your pipes could benefit from a pipe-bursting service, we get to work.

After finding two access points, we send in our specialized pipe-bursting equipment and the new pipe. One of the most important parts of this equipment is the bursting head, which comes in different sizes depending on the diameter of your pipes.

As the equipment makes its way through the sewer pipe following the bursting head, it breaks apart the existing pipe and pushes the pieces along with it from one access point to the other. The new seamless HDPE pipe takes its place, giving you a more durable and secure replacement sewer pipe.

Thanks to our innovative trenchless technology and highly experienced professionals, your new pipes are ready for use right away.

The Benefits of Trenchless Pipe Bursting Over Traditional Pipe Replacement

You should schedule a pipe bursting service if you need sewer line repair or want to replace a pipe without displacing the surrounding soil or breaking up nearby sidewalks and other concrete structures. However, the service’s trenchless nature isn’t the only benefit you can enjoy:

  • Faster than traditional replacement methods: Our professionals can perform pipe bursting rather quickly, so you can enjoy a more efficient replacement service that gives you ready-to-use pipes as soon as we complete the job.
  • Doesn’t change the flow of water: By replacing your old pipes with new ones of the same size, you don’t have to worry about water flow changes.
  • Old pipe condition doesn’t matter: Whether your pipes have severe corrosion or multiple breaks, our pipe bursting service breaks them up and provides a more durable pipe replacement. Trenchless pipe bursting also works on clay, cast iron, or PVC sewer pipes.
