Do you have badly damaged water main lines and pipes that are in desperate need of repair? If so, we can help. High Mark Plumbing is the best company to call when you need trenchless water main repair in Vancouver. It is no longer necessary to apply the older trenching method that requires digging up the entire area above your pipes. We utilize a newer, more innovative method that is less intrusive. It is called directional drilling.
With traditional trenching methods, a trench is dug down the entire length of the broken water main pipe and it is exposed for workers to make inspections and complete repairs. Large excavating equipment is used to perform the trench digging process and as a result, the terrain is torn and tattered and left in disarray. After the repairs are finished, the holes are backfilled but the landscape remains disfigured and scarred; it leaves unsightly and ugly scars on the work area afterward.
Directional drilling is an alternative to trenchless repair, and this method employs a horizontal boring machine to dig a pilot hole near the damaged pipe. The boring machine is a precise and accurate tool that can move directionally and guided past obstacles. The drill bit creates a tunnel to the other side of the repair site in an exit pit. Next, the pilot hole is widened in size with a reamer bit to accommodate the new pipe which is inserted into the hole and then connected to an existing pipeline. This entire process is completed beneath the ground so there is minimal damage or impact on the landscape above. This is a major advantage over traditional trenching methods.
