HDD for Dependable Underground Water Line in BC

At Ironman Directional Drilling, we use horizontal drilling in BC to install high-pressure casings to transport water or sewage from location to location. We employ directional drilling on these sites because they cannot be easily accessed or are in environmentally sensitive areas, such as lakes, rivers, railways, downhill sides, or small mountains.

Homeowners can easily have gas, water, electric, or telecommunications lines placed to their homes through horizontal directional drilling, which is perfect for urban residential areas where houses sit closely together. We can upgrade lawn sprinkler systems, too – all without destroying landscaping.

How Does Water Pipeline Installation Work?

There are two main methods for water line installation, excavation and trenchless (HDD). Here at Ironman Directional Drilling in BC, we employ an innovative trenchless technology for water and sewer line installation that offers excellent results without impacting the service area. We evaluate the type of soil, underground elements, and other factors before installing a new water pipe line or replacing an existing one.

What Is Horizontal Directional Drilling?


Horizontal directional drilling is an innovative way to install pipes, cables, and service conduits without digging trenches. We use horizontal drilling in BC to install water and sewer lines without negatively impacting the service area. Our team creates a pilot hole and then drills it further to put the desired underground utilities in place. We use our cutting-edge equipment and technology to ensure accurate depth, angles, and exit points.

Common Causes for Underground Water Line Leakage

More often than not, leaks in the underground water pipeline result from wear and tear. However, there are several other reasons that can cause this issue, including:


  • Problems with installation
    Hiring an inexperienced contractor to install your water pipelines in BC can be risky. Even minor errors done during the installation can cause costly repairs down the line. To avoid this, always hire a reliable and professional service provider for all your projects.

  • Irregular pressure
    inconsistent pressure in your pipelines that frequently jumps up and down at quick intervals can also cause damage to your pipeline. The team at Ironman Directional Drilling in BC is experienced in resolving such issues and is ready to assist you.

    Pests and rodents like beavers, rats and gophers could also compromise your pipes. Sometimes, they can cause damage to underground systems even below the ground level, causing leaks.
