Help w/boring under a driveway....


BobRobert,

I know this is an old thread but i'm curious how you solved your problem? I just bored under 3 sidewalks (8' wide) in North Carolina. The soil there is hard, red clay like in Georgia. It was terrible. We finally beat a 4" pvc pipe through and used a zero degree fitting on a pressure washer to clean out the pipe as we went along. At one point the pipe hit an obstruction so we pulled it out and used the pressure washer alone to shoot a hole under the sidewalk. Then we were able to easliy force the pvc pipe through.

PS: Love this forum! Been a lurker for some time.

I went under a city street once to run a new water line to a house - probably 20-25' wide street. City would not allow the street to be cut/patched. Made up a water drill of pipe. Used a jack hammer to drive the water drill pipe, adding pipe sections as we went along. Was a heck of a lot of work, but got it done. Your run is not as long - I would think very doable with a water drill.
