What Is Directional Drilling?

For Virginia trenchless pipe installation, directional drilling is the best way to complete the job while avoiding disruption of preexisting sewer lines and pipes. To begin the project, a skilled USA Pipe Repair technician will create a pilot hole with a horizontal boring machine drill. The advanced capabilities of the drill allow it to use predetermined locations to enter and exit the ground and even change paths along the way to avoid other lines.

Our technicians can install a new sewer or water line in a matter of hours rather than days using this advanced technology. Once the drill has established the predetermined path for the line, the trenchless pipe installation can begin. Underground installation can be performed without disrupting your lawn, parking lot, or busy streets.

Once the pilot hole is established, a reamer is pulled through the line to clear away any soil or debris lying within the path. The reamer will create a path that is roughly 25 percent larger than the desired line to make it easy for the new pipe to be installed. The new line is then pulled through the opening and each end is connected to the appropriate system.

Why Choose Directional Drilling?

Direction drilling allows for trenchless pipe installation, which is the preferred method of sewer and pipework for the customer and the USA Pipe Repair team. Not only does Virginia directional drilling, save you time, but it also helps avoid damage to your home or commercial building, landscaping, and flooring or parking lot.
