Trenchless Water Lines, Sewer & Utilities

Spokane water and sewer trust Kalin for all commercial and residental repairs and replacements because over 30 years Kalin has proven to be the leader in trenchless technologies.

Horizontal Directional Drilling

Directional boring, called horizontal directional drilling or HDD, is a steerable trenchless solution of installing underground pipe, conduit, or cables in a shallow or deep arc along a pre-determined bore path by using a surface drilling machine, with minimal impact on the surrounding area or landscaping. Directional boring is used because it cost the same as traditional methods but does almost no damage. It is suitable for a variety of soil conditions like sand and clay and jobs including road, landscape and river crossings.
Pipe can be made of materials such as PVC, polyethylene, polypropylene, ductile iron, and steel as long as it can be pulled through the drilled hole diameter. 

Pipe Ramming

Pipe ramming (pipe jacking) is a trenchless method for installation of steel pipes and casings. The method is useful for pipe and casing installations under landscaping and roads, where other trenchless methods could cause surface settling or heaving. The majority of installations are horizontal, although the method can be used for vertical installations.
The method uses pneumatic percussive blows to drive the pipe through the ground. The leading edge of the pipe is almost always open, and is typically closed only when smaller pipes are being installed. The shape allows a small overcut (to reduce friction between the pipe and soil and improve load conditions on the pipe), and directs the soil into the pipe interior instead of compacting it outside the pipe. 

Pipe Bursting

Pipe bursting is a trenchless method of replacing buried pipelines (such as sewer, water, or natural gas pipes) without the need for a traditional construction trench. “Launching and receiving pits” replace the trench needed by conventional pipe-laying.
Trenchless Technology Benefits:
Minimal disruption to traffic, buildings, and other utilities
Avoids sizable surface damage and costly restoration required for old trenching methods
Accelerated project completion timeline
Easy to set up and operate
Minimal crew size

Thank you so much for replacing my water line, was so cool to see the process and how it literally did nothin to my yard. Also, thank you for giving me a fair price, others did not treat me so well with their bids. Your crew was very respectful to my property and my neighbors. My angry neighbor didn’t even get mad, that’s a miracle, you guys must be good! That machine was so cool that your guy said was directional boring, very neat. Thanks again! A+

These guys did a sewer and water line replacement for me and it was all completed in one day, i’m not even kidding. I live on the south hill and I thought they would take a few days but no, thanks for making this so easy, I thought it was going to be a disaster project. They used this directional boring device to do the water line, and pipe bursted the sewer line. My yard is untouched. They re-concreted and laid some sod on the edge near the street where they dug. Everyone knows you use Kalin if you don’t want any problems.

They did a water line repair for me in Spokane at one of my properties. They got done by noon and it was very low priced for the quality. Honestly the other trenchless water replacement companies in Spokane are not trustworthy, thats just my two cents.
