When your sewer line is in need of repair, you cannot afford to wait. A broken sewer line may allow sewage to leak into your fixtures or all around your property, and that’s something no one wants to think about.
Leave it to the professionals—and fast. Call a plumber who can repair your sewer line, but make sure they have the right tools for the job. While many plumbers offer sewer repair and replacement services, only a select few have the equipment for a trenchless sewer repair in West Covina, CA. Call us to learn more!
The Outdated Method (Which Many Plumbers Still Use!)
Before we show you how we would repair most sewer lines in the area, we want to tell you about how other companies might do the job. And, at first, it may seem like the only way. Your sewer line is buried underneath your property, so the only way to fix a problem or replace the pipe is to dig up the entire sewer line with a large trench in the yard, right?
For some companies, this is how things are done. Hopefully, they’ll use video cameras to catch the source of the leak first, but it may be that a large section of your pipes need digging or even the entire length of the pipe. Regardless of the cost to replace the pipe, you’ll have to pay for several hours, or even days, of labor. Then there’s the cost of restoring your landscaping (which you hoped to avoid tearing up in the first place).
Our Trenchless Sewer Pipe Relining
Now, we’d like to go over the method we often use for restoring pipes without having to dig a large trench in the yard. New technology allows us to enter the pipe from one end only and resolve the problem from there. You only need 1-2 holes on the property rather than a large trench. In many cases, you can barely tell we were there after we leave!
How Trenchless Relining Works
Trenchless sewer pipe relining requires heavy-duty equipment that many local companies don’t have access to. Here’s an overview of the process.
- Technicians inspect your sewer line by feeding a video camera cable through an access. The pipe is cleaned using hydro-jetting to clear out the lining.
- One or two holes are dug in your yard—where the sewer pipe meets the city main and/or where it meets your home’s plumbing.
- Hydraulic equipment pushes a deflated pipe liner through the old pipe. The lining is coated with an epoxy.
- The machine goes through the pipe once more to inflate the pipelining and seal it to the pipe. The epoxy creates a hold that makes it as durable as a new pipe.
- The pipe is given time to dry and seal, and the piping is reassembled.
Your sewer pipe works just like new, without having to dig up your entire yard!
