One such trenchless method we employ is directional drilling. Directional drilling allows us to repair pipes without digging up a trench in your yard to get to those pipes. If you are interested in directional drilling in Portland for sewer repairs, contact our team right away.

How does it work?

Directional drilling allows us to drill a new 4” or 6” sanitary sewer line with the same methods of Pipe Bursting. We will drill one hole in the basement or 5’ from the foundation of the property. The other hole will be next to the city curb or over the city main for a new sewer tap. With the directional drill we do need to have room for set up. Sometimes our hole at the house may be a little bigger, as this will allow us to get the proper grade when we do a directional drill.

Directional drilling allows us to control the grade from one hole to the other.

When the the pipe is successfully installed we make a positive connection with sheer bands connecting with the ABS pipe at the house, and PVC piping within the city’s right away.

Finally every sewer is inspected by a city inspector with a water test and a camera to make sure the grade is satisfactory and meets the necessary code requirements.
