Chula Vista, California Trenchless Sewer Repair
Have you heard about the trenchless sewer repair method? In Chula Vista, CA you can rely on SPT Pipe to provide this service. It’s the only way we handle sewer repairs and this is why we do it: trenchless technology does not involve excavation. In other words, when we arrive at your home or business we don’t come with several pieces of heavy equipment. It also means we don’t dig up your yard: wrecking sidewalks, driveways, landscaping and your pristine lawn.
How is Trenchless Better
Trenchless is just that: working on your sewer line without digging a trench to get to it. So how exactly do we fix something that is buried underground? Well, our professional plumbing crew at SPT Pipe will have to do some digging, but not more than two little holes.
The holes are positioned precisely above the pipe connection locations. This gives us all the access we need to your sewer line. Again, keep in mind that we are doing all of this without digging massive trenches in your yard in order to examine the problem pipe. The way we take a closer look at what is happening is one of the most interesting parts of the process.
We get inside the pipe by inserting a tiny camera into it. The closed-circuit camera system allows us to look inside the pipe without removing it. In fact, we can move the camera along the pipe to sections that are still sitting quietly under your yard. The camera shows us exactly what is happening inside your sewer line and allows us to properly identify any problem. For example, if there is a clog we will know exactly where in the pipe it is and then we will flush it out with pressurized water or air.
The camera also gives us details about the condition of your pipe. If we see cracks forming we can fix them with an epoxy liner that works much like painting a seal along the inside of the pipe.
If we see a break in the line we can repair that with a cured-in-place pipe, which is essentially a new pipe inside the old pipe. Should we locate a cave in or other serious problems that can’t be repaired with these solutions we can replace the pipe by breaking it up when we drag a new pipe into its place. This is called pipe bursting and we still don’t need to dig up your property to do this.
Where trenchless sewer repairs are the most attractive is that they don’t take as long to complete as traditional methods and as a result, they don’t cost as much to you. Plus, with trenchless technology your repair is guaranteed to last a lifetime and we typically don’t need to interrupt your water service when working on the repair.
