Directional Drilling for Sewer Main Replacement in Kerrisdale

Directional Drilling for Sewer Main Replacement in Kerrisdale

In years past, replacing a broken or damaged sewer main was a significant undertaking with massive amounts of digging with excavating equipment like backhoes and bulldozers required to expose and allow access to the entire length of the pipe. High Mark Plumbing offers directional drilling for sewer main replacement in Kerrisdale, which is a newer, less invasive technique that is superior to older trenching methods. Horizontal directional drilling can be used for most applications, and when you need to preserve the sidewalks, parking lots, structures, and landscape on your property, it is usually the best method to choose. Additionally, it can cost less and usually takes less time to complete the repair.

What is directional drilling? It is a newer method of repairing and replacing pipes where a tool known as a horizontal boring machine is used to drill a hole underground for the new pipe. First, a pilot hole is dug, creating a tunnel from the entry pit to the exit pit, and then a reamer head is pulled back along the opening to widen it to the size of the pipe. The new pipe is inserted and connected to the existing pipe structure, and the holes are backfilled. The most significant benefit to using directional drilling is that it can be done in tight or hard to reach places with established structures and landscaping because the digging and repairs are completed entirely underground. The surface is left virtually unscathed, and the landscape surrounding the worksite remains pristine.

Regardless if you are a homeowner, business owner with commercial property, or an owner of an industrial complex, with all of the underground pipes beneath your property it is likely that you will require a repair sooner or later, and High Mark Plumbing is here to offer directional drilling for sewer main replacement in Kerrisdale.
