Trenchless Directional Drilling is a highly efficient technique that is cost effective, and it greatly reduces the disturbance to your yard. This underground construction method requires few pits and no open trenches to place or replace subsurface water, sewer, power, communications and gas lines. We can help with most of those. The Freedom Plumbers and Pumpers, Septic & Drain Directional Boring/HDD solutions, offers significant environmental advantages over traditional open cut and cover pipeline/utility installations and replacements. The technique is routinely used when conventional trenching or excavation is not practical or when minimal surface disturbance is required. Our trenchless boring solutions are generally accomplished in three principal phases. First, a small diameter pilot hole is drilled along a directional path from one surface point to another. Next, the bore created during pilot hole drilling is enlarged to a diameter that will facilitate installation of the desired pipeline. Lastly, the pipeline is pulled into the enlarged hole, thus creating a continuous segment of pipe underground exposed only at the two initial endpoints. Directional Boring/HDD can be utilized to cross any number of surface obstacles including roadways, railroads, wetlands, and water bodies of varying sizes/depths. The process is suitable for a variety of soil conditions including clay, silt, sand, and rock. Problematic soil conditions include large grain content in the form of coarse gravel, cobbles, and boulders. Other subsurface conditions which can impact the feasibility of Directional Boring/HDD include excessive rock strength and abrasivity, poor rock quality, and rock exhibiting karst features.
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.
