Pipe bursting is a modern pipe replacement method that eliminates the need for invasive trenches and heavy machinery on your property. This technique is commonly used for sewer lines but is also often used for water and natural gas pipes. Unlike pipelining where a new pipe is inserted within the old one, pipe bursting breaks up the old pipe and replaces it with a new one.

Having your property dug up for a major sewer repair or replacement is not something any homeowner wants. At Busy Bee Septic and Excavating LLC, we get it. That’s why we offer non-invasive trenchless technology for major plumbing repairs.

We offer pipe bursting services for all properties throughout Orange County, New York, and the surrounding areas. Our pipe bursting services ensure you receive a timely and economical result, with minimal damage to your property. By using this method, it is possible to replace the broken or cracked pipes by creating only two holes- entry and exit points- in your yard.

Pipe bursting is a hassle-free and cost-effective sewer pipeline replacement method that protects your yard and landscaping.

Below are some of the key advantages of pipe bursting.

Less Labor-Intensive

Since there is no digging involved, pipe bursting is less labor-intensive. Nobody needs to operate large machinery to dig up the soil. Contractors won’t have to spend their day shoveling dirt, either.

Less Damage to the Site

Pipe bursting causes less damage to the worksite. This results in less clean-up and less repair. 

This method is the best option compared to other more conventional methods of pipe repair. Handling toxic substances during excavation can be common, and since no digging is involved in pipe bursting, it doesn’t give these substances any time to enter into the water supply or anywhere else.


The reality is excavation is not fully safe. Mold and asbestos are unhealthy elements that often breed underground. When you dig them up, you open yourself up to several health risks. Unlike pipe bursting, you don’t have to dig up the ground so you don’t put yourself in harm’s way.

Increased Pipe Flow

Since pipe bursting is a trenchless sewer method, it encompasses the potential of a free and increased flow of wastewater through the replacement pipe. There is enough space for bigger pipes, with increased fill capacity due to the fracturing and soil-clearing nature of pipe bursting.

To begin the process of pipe bursting, a conical bursting head is fixed to a replacement pipeline, and fed through an entry hole to the broken sewer line. The pointed bursting head will break the existing, damaged pipeline as it travels through. This is due to the bursting head’s cone shape which is larger at its base than the existing pipe’s diameter.

Afterward, using a pull rod or hydraulic power, the entire existing pipe is fractured and pushed from its original location. The replacement pipe which is attached behind the bursting head is seamlessly fed in place, to fill the cavity left behind by the bursting head. Pipe bursting is an innovative technique that entails effective and guaranteed error-free installation.
