Directional Drilling Covington

Directional Drilling Covington Main Line Plumbing Auburn

We provide directional drilling services to other plumbing companies in Covington. This includes companies in Covington that don’t focus on providing this service method, or that are unable to themselves.  

Directional drilling is a trenchless method of drilling that is not vertical. More specifically, horizontal directional drilling involves repairing or replacing sewer pipes underground. With this method, excavation or digging up the ground is avoided and therefore is a minimally-invasive method.  

The benefits of directional drilling include:  

  • It is a minimally-invasive method  
  • Expedited project completion   
  • Relatively safer for the environment  
  • Circumvent ruin to buildings, hardscaping, and landscaping  
  • Significantly cost-effective in comparison to conventional methods

Directional Boring Covington 

When it comes to drilling for sewer repair or installations in Covington, there are always obstacles in the way. This includes utility connections as well as pre-existing pipe-lines in more rural areas, and rocks as well as tree roots for more urban Covington grounds. Because different areas are unique, plumbers gather information on current obstacles that are in the way before making a drilling plan. However, unexpected obstacles occur as well. With directional drilling, it is easier to avoid this kind of uncertainty and still be able to reach the desired destination.  

Drilling Horizontal Covington  

So, with directional boring and horizontal drilling, what is the difference? Though these two terms are often used interchangeably, there is a difference implied in the names. The word “bore” suggests a smaller-sized drilling bore. It is used for projects that need hundreds of feet of digging. On the other hand, horizontal drilling suggests a longer-sized drilling bore. This term usually refers to digging thousands of feet. A plumber is able to diagnose the particular sewer issue and determine what size of bore that needs to be used. Either way, both terms are types of directional drilling which means horizontal drilling as opposed to vertical.  

Because of the benefits of this method, a user is able to cut costs as well as time when completing a project. Plumbers can drill down to uncover the core issue that is causing Covington sewer issues. Or, a bore hole can be drilled to install a completely new sewer line. Either way, it is a great method to use, particularly in an area that is close to many trees or utilities.
