Trenchless Sewer Repair in San Diego
Calling for a sewer repair used to be a dreaded activity. Just thinking about the heavy machinery tearing up your driveway, lawn or parking lot was enough for people to put it off far longer than they should have. The newest sewer line replacements eliminate all of these worries. With a trenchless sewer line replacement we only dig two holes – one at the connection to your house and one at the connection to the city sewer system. No big mess, no uprooting of the landscape, just a one day repair job.
Why Do You Need a Trenchless Sewer Repair?
There are many different problems that can result in the need for a new San Diego sewer and drain system. My Plumber CA has the experience and expertise to handle all of these problems including:
- Broken, cracked, offset or collapsed pipe
- Bellied Pipe
- Root Infiltration
- Off-grade pipe
All of these instances require the replacement of the sewer line. In cases where you are dealing with a blockage or corrosion issue or have leaky pipes, a relining might be in order.
Benefits to Trenchless Sewer Line Repair
There are many reasons why trenchless sewer line replacement and relining proves to be a better option for San Diego homeowners than traditional pipe replacements. There is no need to dig into the ground to retrieve old pipes, no destruction of your landscape and the entire process is far less labor intensive (so it doesn’t cost as much).
How Does Trenchless Sewer Repair Work?
We begin each trenchless installation by digging the two holes mentioned above. Then a steel cable is threaded through the existing pipe from one end to the other. When the cable emerges it is fitted with a bursting head followed by the new pipe. A hydraulic cable puller pulls the bursting head through the existing pipe, breaking it along the way. The old pipe chips are pushed into the existing soil and the new pipe replaces them in the hole cleared by the head. Once the cable has been fully pulled, our licensed plumbers make the connections to the home and main city sewer. That’s all there is to it.
Every new trenchless sewer system we install comes with 20 year guarantee.
