Directional Drilling for Sewer Main Replacement in Kitsilano

Directional Drilling for Sewer Main Replacement in Kitsilano

If a broken sewer main line is causing you distress, you need to call the professionals at High Mark Plumbing. We offer directional drilling for sewer main replacement in Kitsilano that is a better option than traditional trenching methods. If you don’t want your property to have unsightly damage from excavation activity, then directional drilling is the way to go. It will leave the structures and landscape on your property intact since all of the repairs take place underground. Not only is it less intrusive, but also it can save you time and money since it often has a quicker time to completion and costs less than traditional trenching.

Modern technology and tools are now available to make pipe repair and replacement more accessible and less intrusive than traditional trenching methods. With a horizontal boring machine, we can dig a hole beneath your property and leave the surface undisturbed. First, a pilot hole is drilled horizontally, next to the pipe that needs replacement, creating a tunnel that runs from the entry pit to the exit pit. A reamer head runs back through the pilot hole to make it large enough for the new pipe to fit. The new pipe is inserted into the hole, connected to the existing pipe structure, and then the entry and exit pits are filled in with dirt.

Why is directional drilling a better choice? One of the significant benefits of directional drilling is that it can be performed in a close-fitting or difficult area to reach. Traditional methods require a lot of room to move and operate the heavy excavation equipment needed to dig the trenches. This is not the case with directional drilling, and if there are standing structures, sidewalks, parking lots, or landscapes in the way of the repair, they will be avoided entirely and left undamaged since all of the repairs take place underground.
