Pipe Bursting and Slip Lining

Vortex Services specializes in trenchless pipe replacement by using its advanced pipe bursting and slip lining methods.

We have over 45 years experience in pipe bursting and slip lining and have utilized these solutions on all types and diameters of water, sewer and storm pipe.

Bursting is particularly effective when damaged pipe systems run beneath roads, sidewalks and parking lots that cannot be disturbed, and when systems are in need of upsizing.

Slip lining involves inserting a slightly smaller diameter pipe (HDPE or GRP) into the host pipe and then mechanically reconnecting services.

Types of Pipe Burst

  • Non-RCP
  • RCP
  • Clay
  • DIP
  • PVC

Benefits of Pipe Bursting

  • Displaces old pipe while simultaneously replacing it with new HDPE pipe
  • Easy to upsize to add flow capacity
  • Minimizes surface disruption
  • Up to 40% less expensive than dig and replace
