Directional Drilling For Sewer Main Replacement in Fraserview

Do you have broken sewer pipes that need repair or replacement? If so, then you need the experts at High Mark Plumbing who provide directional drilling for sewer main replacement in Fraserview. Directional drilling is a newer, more advanced way to fix damaged sewer lines that is superior to traditional trenching methods. Some of the reasons we think it is a better method are: it costs less, is faster to complete, and is less invasive. This saves you time and money and keeps your yard free from massive and unsightly damages from the excavation tasks.

With the traditional trenching method for sewer line repair, it requires large trenches to be dug with backhoes and other excavation equipment to reach the damaged lines targeted for inspection or replacement. If there are sidewalks, parking lots, or landscapes in the path of the pipe, these will require extra work and labor to replace and repair any damages caused in the process. The landscaping is covered with unsightly scars and marks left behind by the trenches, holes, and heavy equipment. Also, there is a higher cost associated with traditional trenching because of the amount of labor and equipment involved, and the time it takes to make the repairs.

Conversely, directional drilling is a method that only needs a minimal amount of smaller holes to access the area near the damaged sewer lines. A horizontal boring machine is used to drill a pilot hole next to the existing line, in a precise and guided process that uses a boring head that can make calculated directional movements underground to go around obstacles and reach the desired destination on the other end. The pilot hole is then widened with a reamer bit until it reaches the necessary diameter to fit the new pipe; the new line is inserted and installed and attached to the existing pipe structure, and the repair is then completed by filling in the access holes. All of this takes place underground, so the landscape is left unscathed and in its original state.
