When city officials say the infrastructure needs of the community include water and sewer problems at many of their fire stations, you take notice. That’s exactly the news that came out in September 2014 in San Diego. In fact, compared to a study conducted in 2009, infrastructure at 50 of the city’s fire-rescue facilities had continued to deteriorate. Fortunately, for trenchless sewer repair at your residential or business property in San Diego, CA you can turn to the professionals at SPT Pipe.
Because sections of the city are much older than other parts and the city continues to grow, there is pressure put on to the sewer and drain system. Depending on where you live in the city, you could have pipes in the ground that are far older than you think. The problem with old underground pipes is that if they are made of cement, lead, or ceramic materials, they end up breaking up over time.
There are signs to watch for that will tip you off to the possibility of an underground leak or break in your lines. The four main clues are as follows.
If the drains in your sink, tub or shower are slow to empty, it could be a sign of a pipeline problem. If this has developed over time, you could have a clog that will require professional flushing with pressurized air or water in order to remove it.
The smell of sewer gases coming from drains in your home or business means something has happened to your drain line. It’s possible that a tree root has cracked through or there has possibly been a cave in. Our professionals at SPT Pipe can fix that with a cured-in-place pipe replacement or pipe bursting a new line in place.
Just like slow drains, water pooling can be an indication of something plugging your lines that needs to be removed. Or if a pipe has caved in, it will have to be replaced. But we can take care of it in a short period of time without leaving behind a large mess for you to deal with later.
If there is a spot in your yard that is damp, spongy and smells like sewer gases, your line could have a break or leak in it. Our SPT Pipe professional can fix that with an epoxy liner.
