      Trenchless here as well. If trenchless is not an option than we bring out the backhoe.

      Gene, are you keeping that pipe patch system busy? I am a bit slow on trenchless repair lately for some reason.

        We will dig them up if it is broken. If the break is not the severe and it is roots or a belly and the customer does not want to pay or they are moving then we will put it under a maintenance contract.

          I just did one today actually, but I'm not doing as many as I'd like.
          Doing about 1-2 jobs a month. System is more then paid for itself though so it's a pretty good money maker.

              There ways you can do a "pipe pull" where you dig a hole at each end, pull a bursting head with approved pipe behind it through the old pipe. I've never done it myself so others can give you better info. We usually dig it out and replace it.

                  digging in perma-frost is a long, slow, process.

                  we still use the standard/imperial measurment up here.

                  how far did you get today? 6 inches. excellent.

                  although, if we used metric measurments, it would sound better. hhmmm.

                    My 3 man team will dig and lay 150` of 4" sewer and be on our way to the next job in 2.5 hours. Back filled and all!
                    The best part of all is that, all the problems will be corrected unlike "NO DIG"

                      I dig occaisionally depending on how busy we are. If we are busy I will refer cusomer to an excavator. Though I dont do either, I think bursting or relining are good options in some cases where the existiing pipe has proper grade, just other problems. Where there are lots of other utilities in the way, or a busy road to close and manage traffic, or a building on top of the problem, trenchless can be better.
                      This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.
