We talk a lot about Trenchless Replacement Specialists’ unique tools and methods that help you inspect, repair, and even replace piping without digging. In this post we’ll specifically discuss the process of underground boring, and why it could be an option for your home or business.
WHAT IS IT?
So what exactly do we mean by underground boring? This form of drilling allows us to install underground pipelines with absolutely no digging. That means no damage to the surface either in your home or yard. This saves time, money, and the aesthetic of your property while the repairs are being made. Here are the basic steps:
- Locate the access point through an existing drain, or drill one small hole if necessary.
- Stretch the hole to the size needed to fit the pipeline.
- Install the pipeline.
This can not only connect pipes from your home to the street or sewer line, but it can also stretch underneath roads, buildings – even rivers or streams (if we had them around here)!
Traditional drilling for pipeline installation is a hassle. It causes massive intrusion into your home and yard. If you’re doing a commercial project, it can easily involve long-term blockages of roads, parking lots, entrances, and other construction-related inconveniences for you, your customers, and the public. Meanwhile, boring removes all of those concerns. Some of the other advantages include:
- Less soil disturbance – making it more environmentally friendly.
- Underground boring near water has a reduced risk of water contamination than traditional drilling.
- Uncontrollable factors (like rain) are less likely to delay your project – all the work is underground!
- Drilling underground saves money! Imagine how much you’ll save by not having to repave a broken driveway or redo your landscaping!
