Trenchless sewer line repair in San Diego
In the past, repairing or replacing a sewer line often involved digging a large trench that is several feet deep and at least as long as the pipe section that needs to be replaced. This can be extremely damaging to your lawn, especially in loose or sandy soils where the hole must be wider to avoid soil collapses. Trenchless sewer repair and replacement methods can give you a reliable, long-lasting sewer pipe without the need for extensive excavation.
Trenchless Pipe Repair Explained
First, our ALMCO Plumbing company will determine if trenchless pipe relining can be done on your property. All procedure includes 4 steps:
- 🔹 A pipe repair technician will use a sewer camera to identify and evaluate the problem.
- 🔹 An access hole is dug at both ends of the pipe.
- 🔹 A flexible tube is pushed into the old pipe. The flexible tube looks like neoprene, and it is coated with a special resin.
- 🔹 The technician pumps compressed air into it so that it can blow out and cling to the interior walls of the old sewer pipe.
After several hours, the resin hardens and then there will be a solid pipe inside the existing pipe. At this point, the pipe will have a slightly smaller internal diameter. This is hardly anything to worry about because the pipe will allow wastewater to flow through easily since the pipe is now smooth, and roots will no longer penetrate it.
