When in Doubt, Call on our Pipe Boring Technicians

Pipe boring is used to install pipes under obstacles such as roads, buildings, sidewalks, or wetlands. As a leading pipe boring company in the Tacoma, WA, area, we have the training and experience to properly install pipes without the need to dig a trench in your yard.

Read on to learn more about pipe boring, and call Harts Services for professional pipe boring services in any of the following communities:

  • University Place, WA
  • Federal Way, WA

  • Puyallup, WA
  • Steilacoom, WA

Depending on the size of the bore, our pipe boring experts will use one of two pieces of equipment:

  • The Basement Buddy:
    The basement buddy is a small drill designed to re-pipe, from the basement of a home all the way to the curb stop. This drill is able to navigate up, down, left, and right, which ensures that your new service line will be installed accurately every time. This particular tool comes equipped with a pit launch box, which allows the drill to remain stable, even in soft soil conditions.
  • The Boring Machine:
    The boring machine is an extremely powerful boring drill, capable of executing a bore in most conditions. This drill creates a minimum environmental impact, so our pipe boring technicians are able to complete a bore job safely and with little to no effect on homes, businesses, or other surrounding areas.

How the Pipe Boring Process Works

Unsure about whether pipe boring is the right method for solving your underground piping challenge? If you’re concerned about the project’s environmental impact, accuracy of pipe placement, the duration of the job, or how much space it will take up, pipe boring checks all the boxes for speed, efficiency, and eco-friendliness.

  • While an access area is needed to set up the direction drill used in a pipe bore, this area can be strategically placed away from homes, congestion, and businesses. Before beginning a pipe bore, our crew must carefully plan a path for drilling. This is to ensure that there will be no obstructions, such as other utility lines. Like with all trenchless repairs, a pipe bore requires both an entrance and exit pit. To begin, pipe boring technicians set up the directional at the entrance pit. The entrance pit is used to contain and manage the drilling fluids.
  • It’s important that our crew maintains communication with each other throughout the entire process. The directional drill is tracked remotely using radio signals. These signals are used to report the depth and pitch of the drill. This allows for one to give directions to the directional drill operator, instructing them on which way to steer the drill bit. The drill can be steered in any direction making for a clean, unobstructed path.
  • This process is known as drilling a pilot bore. After the pilot bore is dug, the resulting drill path is typically enlarged to one and a half times the pipe that is being installed. A reamer is attached and pulled back through the initial path to enlarge it. After the bore path is enlarged, the pipe can be pulled into place by the directional drill rig.
