A broken water main in March 2015 sent tens of thousands of gallons of water through the streets of central Escondido and closed a main highway. The 10-inch pipeline sent out 6-thousand gallons per minute. The cause of the break was not certain.
One way to be certain that your home or business sewer and drain lines don’t burst is to have a pipe inspection. In Escondido, CA pipe inspection services are provided by SPT Pipe.
The purpose of an inspection of your pipes is to make sure they are in good working order. Even though they are buried underground and sit there for decades, there is always the chance of a break, crack, cave in, or clog. This is even more important should your home be in an older neighborhood. That’s because old pipes tend to become problem pipes. The construction materials used over the past 100-plus years break down over time.
A pipe inspection conducted by our professional plumbers at SPT Pipe will not only reveal the condition of your pipes, but also if there is a problem developing, we’ll be able to address it long before it becomes a larger problem. But in order to do this we need to gain access to your sewer lateral. We do this by digging holes at locations where the pipe connections would be. In other words, we are not tearing up your entire yard in order to pull out a pipe just to look at it.
Hassle-Free Pipe Inspection.
At SPT Pipe we use what is known as trenchless technology. With access holes dug, we then insert a small camera into the pipe we want to inspect. The video we see will show us exactly what is going on inside the pipe. We will be able to see if there is any cracking, breaks, any kind of obstruction through organic material or a tree root. Plus, we’ll also be able to see cave-ins or identify the potential of such incidents occurring just by inspecting the pipe.
With the camera used during a pipe inspection we get a view from inside the pipe. If we find something that needs to be repaired, we will discuss your options and then proceed with trenchless technology, ranging from a cured-in-place-pipe liner, an epoxy lining, or pipe bursting.
If the problem is just a clog, we can remove it with pressurized water or air. Regardless of the repair, we will be able to take care of it quickly and efficiently without a delay.
