24-Hour Sewer Repair Company in San Mateo County
In the past, homeowners would dread the idea of having their sewers repaired because the process was so invasive. With traditional digging techniques, a yard would look like a warzone by the end of the day. Fortunately, there is a way to avoid this through innovative San Francisco sewer repair. Let our specialists at One Source Plumbing provide powerful plumbing alternatives at once.
What Are the Benefits of Pipe Lining Services?
The innovative process of pipe lining works by coating the interior with an epoxy solution. This solution will quickly solidify, and once it is dry, the liner is tougher and more secure than ever. Since the epoxy solution comes in the form of a liquid at first, it does not require any invasive digging.
Some of the other advantages of receiving pipe lining include:
- A more secure sewer line, capable of lasting several decades
- Safety for the environment since epoxy does not leave harmful chemical residue
- Increased convenience for your schedule without the extensive process of traditional digging
- Peace of mind that the whole lawn and landscaping will not be damaged by trenching
How Pipe Bursting Works
Does a sewer pipe appear to be leaking all sorts of toxic waste on your property? Has a recent storm or earthquake severely damaged the pipe? The good news is that even these events does not mean that hope is lost for your lawn. It is possible to save beautiful landscaping through the technique of pipe bursting. This strategy is a bit more invasive than pipe lining, but still enables homeowners to avoid having the whole yard dug up.
Rather than trenching the pipe’s whole length, two small access holes are created. The new pipe is prepared to be inserted with a sharp, conical head at the front. This piece is pulled forward through the first hole, bursting the old pipe, while the new sewer follows behind. Any remaining pieces of the old sewer are safely turned aside, and the new pipe is set in its place.
When to Choose Pipe Bursting over Pipe Lining
In some cases, pipe lining is not an option because the old sewer is too damaged in multiple spots. This occurs in large sections where the pipe has been mangled by tree roots, or harsh chemicals have eaten away big holes. It would be ineffective to pour in an epoxy liner since the current tube of piping would either be too crumpled or completely nonexistent. The liner could not stick to the previous pipe, allowing for a double-sealed barrier. This scenario would call for pipe bursting instead since the old pipe would be completely removed and replaced.
Of course, it can be difficult for homeowners to decide which option is necessary. When in doubt, just consult with our team at One Source Plumbing.
