How does directional drilling compare to traditional trenching methods? Traditionally, when you need a pipe placed on your property, you would call a contractor to come out and dig a massive trench and holes to locate and repair the old pipe; the new pipes would be placed in the ground, and then the trench would be refilled with soil. This method leaves massive and unsightly excavation scars to the surrounding terrain.

With directional drilling, you can eliminate the need for open trenches and leave the surrounding landscape unharmed, and it usually costs much less than traditional trenching methods. This is how it works: A horizontal boring machine first creates a pilot hole that creates a tunnel along the desired path of the new pipe. With extreme precision, the boring machine can make an exact directional movement in predetermined locations to avoid obstructions that exist underground in the path of the new pipe. Once the pilot hole is made, it is enlarged with a reamer bit to match the size of the new pipe, which can then be inserted into the hole and connected to the pre-existing lines. This allows for the entire process to be completed underground, without causing extensive disruption and damage to the surrounding landscape above ground.
