Your sewer system is one of the most essential components of your home, business, or commercial space that most people overlook. That is, until something goes wrong. Regardless of what happens, your sewer system is a necessary component of your everyday life, so it needs to be maintained and repaired if something goes wrong. A major plumbing emergency requires prompt and decisive action. SoCal Sewer Construction, Inc. provides industry-leading service when it comes to sewer replacement and repair.
Why Your Sewer System is Important
Having an adequate sewer system isn’t just a necessity, it’s a responsibility! Adequately-running sewer systems play vital roles in disease prevention and sanitation.
Here are a few tell-tale signs your sewer is in need of service or repair:
Bad Odor: Sanitary sewers will be air-tight (with the exception of vent stacks). If you’re experiencing any sewer odors, there could be a crack or clog somewhere in the line.
Faulty Draining: If your drain slows, this is a sign that a blockage has started to accumulate, leading to larger clogs and sewage backups. If your sink, bathtub, or toilet takes a while to drain, it’s important to address the issue in its early stages.
Soggy Spots on the Lawn: Undetected leaks in the sewer line will start to yield soggy, raised patches in the yard. This comes as a result of water gathering underneath the lawn surface.
Septic Waste Pools: This one is undeniable. A broken sewer pipe will result in septic wastewater pools forming in the yard. This could be a broken main line, broken septic tank, or even a clogged drain field.
A broken sewer line is something you don’t want to experience. But it happens.
Why should I consider trenchless sewer repair?
Trenchless technology gives us the ability to aptly repair and address (or even completely replace) your sewer pipes without doing any major damage to your landscaping.
There Are 2 Popular Trenchless Plumbing Repair Solutions
Pipe Bursting — Involves destroying old, damaged piping, then replacing it with completely new material. We use a steel bursting head, inserting it into the pipeline at an entry point. We then run a chain from the head to a targeted exit point. Once we have the bursting head in place, we use it to fracture the old, damaged piping. We attach new pipe to the back of the bursting head. This immediately replaces old, busted piping as the bursting head travels through.
Pretty neat and best of all, no major damage to landscaping.
Cured-in-Place Pipe (CIPP) Lining — This method reinforces the existing pipe, repairing gaps, cracks, or other kinds of faults by treating with an epoxy-coated liner, coating it into the existing pipe. This lining cures to the walls of the pipe. To put it simply, it’s like putting a brand-new pipe inside of the old existing pipe.
