Directional Drilling For Sewer Main Replacement in Downtown Vancouver

When you want a new sewer line installed you don’t want the yard in front of your home or the landscape near your business destroyed by massive digging and trenching from heavy equipment and excavators. Directional drilling for sewer main replacement in Downtown Vancouver by High Mark Plumbing is the best method to use when you want to preserve the terrain and structures around the worksite. We offer the best directional drilling service around, and we can get the job done right and on time while keeping the overall cost lower than traditional trenching methods.

With the older method known as trenching, heavy equipment in the form of excavators and bulldozers are used to dig trenches and holes that permit access to the pipes underground. This results in extreme damage to the surrounding worksite, and no matter how well you put it all back together again, the signs and marks left behind are obvious and apparent. The damage to your yard, parking lot, foundation, or other structure can be drastic and require additional work to repair and put back to its original state. Trenching construction activities are never kind to the landscape and the end result is rarely pretty; the ugliness can remain behind for a long time after the work is complete. Another thing to consider is that traditional trenching is much more costly due to labor, time involved, and equipment expenses.

Another, newer and more affordable method is being used that is superior in every way to traditional trenching. This new method is called directional drilling and a special machine called a directional boring machine is used to dig a small pilot hole to get the work started. It is a precision-guided machine that can avoid underground obstacles and make a clear path to the exit pit on the other side. After the hole is established, it is widened with a reamer bit, and then once the hole is large enough to accommodate the new pipe, the new line is placed into the hole and attached to the established connections. After the installation is complete, the small holes are filled in and the surrounding terrain is left virtually untouched. Your landscape, yard, or lot is kept in its original form and doesn’t show unsightly, ugly signs of construction work.
