AKA—Horizontal Directional Drilling
Line repair with minimal disruption to buildings, landscaping, sidewalk, and parking lots.
We've got you covered.
Directional boring is a trenchless method of installing underground pipe, conduit, or cable along a prescribed bore path by using a surface-launched drilling rig, with minimal impact on the surrounding area. Directional boring is used when trenching or excavating is not practical. It is suitable for a variety of soil conditions and commercial applications including buildings, roads, and landscaping.
Pipe can be made of PVC, polyethylene, polypropylene, Ductile iron, and steel. Solid rock or sedimentary material works best for pulling the material through. Cobblestone is not recommended.
Fletcher Plumbing prides itself on being one of the first companies in our area to tackle all forms of trenchless pipe replacement methods and continues to explore all new methods such as pipelining. With our newest option of repair or replacement, we can build a new pipe inside your old pipe if conditions allow. In addition to replacement, we can do spot repairs without digging. We have the experience and equipment to handle commercial, as well as, residential sewer installation, maintenance, repair, and replacement jobs.
