Pipe bursting can be used to replace pipe of equal or greater size without using open trench methods. Pipe bursting is accomplished by pulling a bursting device through the existing pipe. This device, by virtue of its size or its radial expansion ability (depending on the type), shatters or splits the old pipe and forces the fragments or the old pipe wall into the surrounding soil. The new pipe is typically attached to the bursting device and is thereby pulled into place as the device advances. Pipe bursting methods can be used to replace old pipe made of clay tile, concrete, cast iron, pvc, steel, or similar materials.
