Lateral Bursting

Before the introduction of lateral pipe bursting, trenchless methods were primarily used for municipal or government projects. These methods included horizontal directional drilling for new utilities, guided pneumatic impact moles for bursting large sewer and storm mains, and hydraulic rod-pushers for replacing other Cured-in-Place-Pipe (CIPP) lined sewer lines. All of these methods and machines had a common scope of work, mainly focusing on large and public projects.

The implementation of lateral bursting in Toronto is largely credited to the efforts of Toronto plumbers. The installation of lateral bursting in residential areas of Toronto is a significant advancement with numerous advantages.

High Production

Lightning is designed to work best where lateral pipes are shallow and pits are dug by hand. It breaks down into four lightweight pieces for easy disassembly and assembly. Once the unit is up and running, production rates of up to 12 feet per minute ensure fast and efficient installation.

Environmentally Friendly

Lateral bursting systems require small pits, reducing the amount of excavation and associated surface disruption. This results in an environmentally friendly project with minimal impact on the surrounding area.


Laterals commonly include physical turns—1/8 or 1/16 bends in the line—to accommodate the flow path from the building exit point to the municipal connection. Sewers can exit a building from various points, often in restricted spaces or covered by surface improvements. City or county connections can be at the property line, in a side or rear easement, or in the public right of way, depending on local regulations that define owner responsibility.

Business Growth

P systems enhance job site efficiency and productivity. With proper planning, you can replace more than one lateral per day, increasing your business and profitability.

Quick-Grip Burst Heads

The unique design lets you connect the bursting head to the HDPE pipe without the use of hand tools. Compared to bolt-on or fuse-on pipe pullers, Quick-Grip Burst Heads save you time and help increase overall production.

Pipe bursting relies heavily on planning and preparation. The objective in lateral bursting is to install a new sewer with maximum efficiency and minimal disturbance to property and homeowners, then repeat the process regularly. Achieving this objective creates satisfied customers and a profitable business.

  • 2. How do pipes freeze?

    Water has the unusual property of expanding as it freezes. This expansion exerts enormous pressure on everything that contains it, such as metal or plastic pipes. Regardless of how strong a container is, expanding water will cause pipes to burst.

  • 3. Does it take alot of time for pipes to freeze and burst?

    Without a heating source or usage, it takes about 4 to 5 hours for pipes to freeze and then burst in temperatures of 20 degrees and below.
