If you have owned a home in San Diego that you have lived in all your life, chances are that the plumbing system in place would be just as old. The older the plumbing is, the sooner you need to repair or replace your sewage line to ensure no problems come up. If your sewer line bursts or breaks, trenchless sewer repair can fix this problem for you in a convenient way without hindering your everyday lifestyle. Sewer lines cannot be repaired without a professional San Diego plumber’s help but it is still important that you understand the process in order to know whether to consider this option for your home or not.
Trenchless Sewer Repair vs. Traditional Sewer Repair
The traditional sewer repair system that used to be carried out before was less convenient as it required a lot of digging and destruction of property. The whole process was also a lot more expensive due to the extent of digging as well as the costs associated with the damage caused.
The trenchless sewer repair process that My Plumber CA uses in San Diego has made the whole process a lot better and appropriate for homeowners. It is an easier and more sophisticated way of going about the sewer repair system, where the plumber will carry out the work in a lot less destructive manner.
Technology has greatly advanced this process, a sewer camera is used to first identify the problem and figure out where it lies exactly. If the sewer line does need to be repaired it is done easily by digging two holes, one at each corner, instead of digging up the entire ground like it used to be done in the traditional method. The two standard methods of trenchless sewer pipe repair are pipe lining and pipe bursting.
In the pipe lining process a flexible and resin-coated tube is slid into the damaged pipe. It is inflated to take fill up the shape of the existing pipe and when the tube hardens after a few hours, it turns into a new undamaged pipe. Despite what you might be thinking, this lining reduces the pipes diameter by only a small amount. The waste removal system is not affected and this problem is taken care of easily.
Pipe bursting is another method which is carried out to repair sewer lines especially in cases where pipe lining cannot be done. This pulls a completely new pipe into your old sewer line, which makes the older pipe protrude outwards and ‘burst’. A new sewer pipe line hence comes into place.
