Horizontal and directional drilling is a non-invasive water main repair technique that negate the costly collateral damage so common with traditional trenching and drilling. It will also save you a lot of money, especially when you factor in the cost of repairing damaged caused by digging holes through your landscape and structures.
We proudly work with homeowners, commercial entities, and government agencies experiencing water main blockages. If you’re seeking an environmentally safe alternative to traditional water main repair, trenchless technology is the answer you’ve been looking for. This is especially important if your property is located on sensitive wetlands or on other environments where preservation is essential.
Horizontal drilling is a technique whereby technicians drill horizontally through a single hole, eliminating the need to dig a long trench along the entire length of the pipe. This process is faster, cheaper, and far less invasive than traditional trenching techniques.
Our Seattle trenchless water repair techs track the drill head to ensure it stays on track within the pipe. It may take more than one pass to create the correct hole diameter, but once it’s complete the pipe is ready for seamless piping. The angle of our horizontal drilling bit can be controlled with almost perfect accuracy, guaranteeing the efficiency of our crew and maximizing your budget.
Horizontal drilling is not only a faster way to repair a broken water main, it’s also more cost-effective. It’s more flexible too, as it allows our water main repair crews to tackle any kind of terrain or geographical feature commonly encountered on a landscape. Soil contamination is kept to a minimum, and there is little disruption to the surrounding environment, so you can keep your property in its pristine state without being forced to spend a small fortune.
