The Local Expert in Trenchless Sewer Repair in Santa Ana, CA
How would you like fully restored sewer lines without having a big landscape cleanup and restoration project to deal with afterward? This is exactly what you can expect from trenchless pipe repair. It’s an alternative to excavation that The Sewer Surgeon offers for residential and commercial clients in Santa Ana, CA.
Do You Need Trenchless Sewer Repair?
We recommend annual sewer system inspections since there may not be any clear or noticeable signs you need minimally invasive repair or even trenchless pipe replacement. However, there are times when certain signs and symptoms can alert you that something is wrong with your sewer lines. These include:
- Pooled water around where sewer lines are located
- Unpleasant sewer odors in your inside spaces
- Problems with multiple drains
- Musty or moldy smells in areas where sewer pipes enter/exit your home or business
Importance of Trenchless Repairs
Trenchless sewer repair in Santa Ana, CA, is important because sewer pipes need to function correctly so your property isn’t damaged. Slow sewer line leaks, for example, can affect your landscape or even your foundation. Being proactive about sewer repair also reduces the risk of further damage to the pipe or related drain issues.
The Trenchless Sewer Repair Process
The first step we take is to do appropriate inspections and, if necessary, testing. This process typically involves a camera inspection of the affected sewer line. Our pipe repair specialist may also use pressure testing equipment to pinpoint the problem area. The most common no-dig approach to sewer repair is pipe lining, which involves inserting a liner filled with a soft epoxy resin material. Applied to the inside of the existing sewer line, this coating hardens and forms a smooth, solid surface. It essentially creates a new pipe within the existing one.
If a new pipe needs to be installed, we may recommend trenchless sewer replacement. One way this can be done is to pull the new pipe into place in a way that avoids traditional excavation. All work is done by OSHA-compliant and certified employees. Our team of skilled technicians also includes sewer robotic certified operators.
Advantages over Traditional Repair Methods
That said, trenchless pipe repair is often preferred today because it eliminates the need to dig. This fact alone can add up to significant savings from not having to restore your landscaped, concrete-covered, or paved surfaces. When compared with traditional repair methods, trenchless methods offer additional benefits that include:
- No heavy machinery is needed
- The ability to extend the life of all types of sewer lines, even older cast iron ones
- Long-lasting results once we finish with the work
