Horizontal directional drilling is a relatively new technique for the installation of underground utilities. It allows for the installation of utilities including gas, water, sewer, and electricity and communications cables without the need for the usual social costs associated with open trench installations such as disruption of traffic flows, damage to highways, walks, driveways, lawns and gardens
Directional drilling is currently being used to install pressure sewer systems for some water authorities because it is far more cost effective in that main lines can be bored down streets and branches can be installed into houses under garden areas, driveway and paths efficiently and effectively.
BTB can also install gravity sewers which require a specified fall in which the hole is augured and cleaned to the required size and a pvc pipe is manually installed.
BTB can also supply a complete service which connect the sewer network to scouer valves and air valves, and pressure test the system prior to hand over.
