The SW-BOR-100 kit includes all the essential parts you will need to make a powerful excavating tool to bore under a path or driveway.Simply attach a jet nozzle to one end of a piece of PVC pipe and agarden hose to the other end with the components from this kit. The force of the water will create a holethat the pipe can be pushed through to the other side. Large or small areas can be excavated by adjusting the length of pvc pipe. The kit can be reused again and again. The most efficient and cost effective way to excavate under an obstacle! The SW-BOR-100 includes:
Firstdig your trenches on either side of the walk to the depth of the restof your sprinkler system (usually about 6-12 inches minimum). Now using aPVC pipe cutter, cut the piece of schedule 40 PVC pipe about two to four feetlonger than the width of your sidewalk or driveway. Following the directions on thecan of PVC glue (PVC glue is not included) and glue the PVC male adapters on opposite ends of the pvc pipe. Next, attachthe brass female hose x female pipe swivel adapter to one of the PVC male adapters. Then attach the brassmale hose x female pipe adapter to the other PVC male adapter on the opposite side. Connect your garden hose to female swivel adapter. Connect the male hose/female pipe adapter to your 2 inch sweeper nozzle. Your boring tool is now assembled and ready to go.
Turn on the water. Grab hold of the pipe (fitting the pipe into the trench may intitially require some flexing). Keep thepipe level with the bottom of the trench and jab the boring tool into the soil.The dirt will appear to plug the end of the nozzle, just leave the nozzle in place for 15 to 30 seconds toallow the water to loosen the soil. Pull back the pipe 6 inches to a foot and thrust it into the soil again. Keep repeating this pattern until you have completely bored under your driveway/walkway.
Oncethe pipe has made it through to the other side you can shut off thewater and cut the hose end fittings from both ends of the pipe.Tthe pvc pipe tool now becomes your irrigation pipe. Attach your fittings to the pipe and continue to assemble your irrigation pipe. Some people prefer a variation of this method and use alarger pvc pipe to bore the hole. Once they have bored through to the other side, they push theactual pipebeing used into and through the boring pipe to the other side of the path or driveway. The boring tool then acts like a sleeve. Then the larger "boring" pipealso can be used to holdirrigationorlighting wire. This method allows you to bore just one hole for multiple purposes.
