Commonly referred to as Horizontal Directional Drilling or HDD, is a steerable trenchless drilling method for installing underground water, gas, communications, and sewer lines with minimal impact on the surrounding area, so you don’t need to worry about damaging any part of your home, lawn or landscape. Directional Boring is used when trenching or excavation is not practical. It is suitable for a variety of soil conditions including road, landscape, and driveway crossings. HDD drill can even be steered under a house. With the use of very specialized tracking equipment, the drill can be directed to a small hole in the floor to pull in the new main water service.

We have many trenchless options for the repair or replacement of water and sewer lines with minimal to no excavation. Give us a call. We are the industry leaders in residential & small commercial sewer and water pipe diagnostics and second opinions.
Trenchless techniques allow our technicians to access and repair your pipes underground, without excavating the entire sewer line. In many cases, we can use a specially formulated epoxy resin liner to rehabilitate your existing pipeline by creating a new pipe within the current one. If the fractured pipe is severely damaged, we will purposely shatter it while slotting a new pipe into place at the same time using an approach called pipe bursting.
In all cases, trenchless repairs are much more cost-effective and have a shorter turnaround time than traditional approaches that require digging up the entire pipe. There’s no property damage to worry about, and because it uses less equipment and manpower, it’s also kinder to the environment.

Our efforts to provide our customers with more eco-friendly solutions minimize the cost of repairs while preserving the landscaping and infrastructure of the building. Pipe bursting allows us to replace damaged sewer pipes without digging large, deep trenches. The process guarantees that replacement procedures can be conducted from the inside, reducing the risk of damage along the driveways or sidewalks or sinkhole formations resulting from large-scale excavation methods. With at least two access points required, the drilling head is injected into the host pipe, fracturing it and breaking it apart as it is pushed through the drain line. At the same time, the bursting head pulls the new, HDPE pipe along from behind, allowing it to seamlessly take the place of the old pipe as the fragments are released into the soil surrounding it.
Pipe bursting allows our staff to easily replace pipelines of various types, including cast iron, clay, Orangeburg, transite asbestos materials, or other fracturable pipes. In addition, pipe bursting gives our team the versatility to either install a new pipeline of the same size or even larger depending on what is needed.
With only two small access points required to complete the work, the excavation is minimal and non-invasive, preserving your property and reducing collateral damage while keeping the repair costs lower and more affordable for residential and commercial property owners in the Virginia area. This also prevents the need for repaving driveways or replacing the sidewalks, potential risks commonly associated with traditional, dig-and-replace excavation methods. The non-invasive qualities of our pipe bursting, trenchless-based replacement solution helps reduce the likelihood of future problems occurring and produce reliable results for our customers. The HDPE pipes installed in the place of the old pipe are more durable and long-lasting than conventional materials, ensuring that our customers are satisfied with the results for many years.
At Freedom Plumbers, we encourage our customers to invest in sewer camera inspections regularly in order to protect their pipes from future problems. If your pipes are clogged or draining slowly, don’t hesitate to call us to perform an inspection today and learn more about the condition of your pipes without excavation.
