While the creation of subterranean piping systems has traditionally involved the highly disruptive and labour-intensive process of digging up the earth to gouge out installation channels, modern engineering has developed sophisticated subsurface construction methods that remove the need for open trenching completely.

These trenchless piping methods are currently enjoying a rapid rise in popularity throughout the construction and civil engineering sectors, because of their reduced cost as well as ability to minimize disruption to existing built environments during the process subsurface construction. Two of the most popular trenchless methods for pipe installation…
