When you have broken or damaged sewer lines and need repairs fast, High Mark Plumbing offers the best trenchless sewer repair in Burnaby. Older trenching methods require digging and will cause extensive damage to the area above your sewer lines, and this is no longer necessary. There is a newer method that is less intrusive and doesn’t destroy the landscape surrounding the work area. This method is known as directional drilling.
With the older traditional trenching techniques, holes are dug up that form a trench along the length of the damaged sewer pipe. After the pipe is exposed, workers can make inspections and complete pipe replacement and repairs. Backhoes, bulldozers, and other heavy equipment are used to dig the trenches, and the end result is a landscape that is scarred and torn and left in complete disarray. Once the repairs are complete, the trenches are filled in with dirt. However, the worksite terrain continues to show ugly scars and tracks left over from the excavation. The landscape takes a long time to return to its original state.
With directional drilling, the alternative method to trenchless repair, a horizontal boring machine is used to dig a small pilot hole next to the pipe targeted for restoration. A boring machine is a precision device and an accurate tool that can be guided directionally and move past obstacles with ease. The drill bit moves through the dirt and makes a tunnel along the length of the damaged sewer pipe. The pilot hole is made wider with a reamer bit, and then the new pipe is inserted into the hole. After the pipe is in place, it is then connected to the established pipeline, and then the holes are filled back in with dirt. All of this happens underground, so there is little visible damage or impact on the overhead landscape.
