Sewer repair or replacement work, new installations, house sewer repairs, and even underground plumbing work frequently entails dealing with rock conditions that are too large to move by hand. Traditional methods of dealing with a rock condition would be to offset the house sewer, rock breaking by use of jackhammers or in some extreme cases by rock blasting. All of these methods are very time consuming and add a great deal of expense to the cost of a new house sewer or sewer repair, not to mention an increased chance of a job site injury.
