San Diego Trenchless Sewer Lining
Providing Superior Results through Non-Destructive Technology
In the most basic terms, trenchless sewer lining is the process of creating a new pipe inside the existing host pipe. A resin-saturated felt tube made of polyester is inserted or pulled into a damaged pipe. Little to no digging is involved in this trenchless drain lining process, making for a more environmentally friendly method than traditional “dig and replace” sewer and drain pipe repair methods. Trenchless sewer and drain rehabilitation methods are generally more cost-effective than traditional exhume (dig) and replace methods. Many people in San Diego are now looking to trenchless pipelining as an alternative to traditional sewer and drain repair.
Advantages of trenchless sewer lining in San Diego include:
- Little to no digging
- More cost-effective
- Often faster than dig and replace methods
- Environmentally sound alternative to traditional pipe replacement

Is Trenchless Sewer Repair Cheaper?
Trenchless pipelining is a relatively simple process. Because of this, it is the most cost-effective option for relining your home’s pipes. Trenchless repairs are less labor-intensive, which makes them more economical and generally faster than alternative repair options.
How Does the Trenchless Pipe Lining Process Work?
When we conduct our trenchless pipelining, we go through the following process:
- Existing host pipeline is cleaned out with rooter machine
- Video pipe camera confirms if pipe can receive lining
- One small pothole, 4ft. x 3ft., is excavated to expose pipe
- One piece felt liner is treated with epoxy resin
- Lining is inserted into old pipe, calibration tube is inflated and expands the lining
- Lining is “cured-in-place” as epoxy resin cooks and hardens
- Calibration tube is deflated and removed, video camera inspects the results
- Pipelining is a permanent, stand-alone, new pipeline
- Reline 4″ to 6″ transitions
- Non-woven/no stretch liner
- Minimum design life 50 years (ASTM)
How long does epoxy pipe lining last?
On average, studies show that epoxy pipelining lasts between 35 and 50 years - if not longer. We complete our trenchless pipelining process to the minimum design life for 50 years according to ASTM standards.
