Guided Auger Boring

Welcome to Watermains and Drains UK - Experts in Auger Boring

At Watermains and Drains UK, we specialise in providing auger boring services for a wide range of projects. Auger boring, also known as horizontal boring, is a trenchless method used for installing underground pipes, conduits, and cables with minimal disruption to the surrounding environment. With years of experience and a dedicated team of professionals, we are committed to delivering high-quality results tailored to meet your specific needs.

What is Auger Boring?

Auger boring is a trenchless technology that utilises a rotating cutting head to bore through various soil types and install underground infrastructure. Unlike traditional open-cut methods, auger boring eliminates the need for extensive excavation, reducing costs, and minimising environmental impact. This method is ideal for projects that require precision and accuracy in underground installations.

How Does It Work ?

The Guided Auger Boring process begins with the establishment of a launch and reception pit. A pilot tube is then guided along the predetermined path using advanced steering technology. Once the pilot bore is complete, augers are used to remove the soil while casing pipes are simultaneously jacked into place. This method allows for the installation of pipes with diameters ranging from 90mm to 1016mm, accommodating various project requirements.
