A number of site-specific factors and interrelated variables must be considered to produce a specification and plan that assures the owner/engineer receives a quality pipe bursting project. These factors include:

  • Existing pipe material and condition
  • Geometry of the host pipe (diameter, bends, etc.)
  • Access to the site
  • Flow capacity and up-sizing requirements
  • Location and type of pavement, other utilities, and structures
  • Original trench geometry (width and depth)
  • Desired replacement pipe material
  • Other site conditions

We recommend that specific variations of base specifications be tailored by the engineer to meet the needs of each project.
