When excavating or trenching is not considered to be a practical method of installing underground pipes, conduits, or cables, directional boring is utilized. In Sacramento, directional boring is the preferential choice for refurbishing municipal sewers, and the best option when it comes to large industrial projects.  This trenchless process is also a reliable procedure for an array of soil jobs and conditions including landscape, in addition to, river and road crossings.

We at Express Sewer and Drain in Sacramento advocate the technologically advanced directional boring technique and its several benefits. We proudly use Ditch Witch drilling rigs, which are ideal for our many water, sewer, and gas pipe rehabilitation jobs.

Directional Boring In Sacramento

The Directional Boring Process at a Glance

Directionally boring is essentially used when other methods are too costly, or impossible. This can  include congested or environmentally sensitive areas. There is thorough use of directional boring in urban areas for developing subsurface utilities. This assists in preventing open cut trenches.

The directional boring process commences with a receiving hole and an entrance pit. For entry, a pilot hole is dug out. The hole is then broadened by a second technique that uses a larger cutting tool. The size of the pipe depends on the reamer’s diameter. This diameter is increased by the driller. The size which it is increased is dependant upon the material being cut. In the final step of the directional boring method, the pipe is placed in the widened hole by using a steel drill. Then, it is moved behind the reamer to permit centering of the pipe in it’s new position.

The trenchless method of directional boring lays pipe underground with minimal digging. What does this mean for the customer? A cleaner job, and a pipe with a longer life. The directional boring process is also extremely fast, and the complete task can be completed in a few hours.
