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

How Does the Trenchless Pipe Lining Process Work?

The process of trenchless pipelining is fairly simple. Overall, this is the most cost-effective option for relining your home’s pipes.

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)

Why Choose Trenchless?

If you’re having a drain problem the only thing you know for sure is that you need it fixed. The first course of action is going to be to resolve the immediate problem by clearing the line. Once the line is cleared we will conduct a full video inspection of your main sewer and drain lines so we can tell where the problem is stemming from. If the host pipe is deteriorating or your experiencing root intrusion, trenchless lining may be the best option. We also offer sewer and drain line replacement so you can trust that we will show you all the options and let you determine what the best solution is for you.

Anderson Plumbing, Heating & Air can fix your broken sewer or water pipe without disrupting your yard or landscaping! If you’re interested in finding out more about trenchless sewer relining in San Diego, or you’d like to schedule a service with our team, contact us online or by phone!

Tips & Advice

Tips & Advice From Our Experts

  • Sewer Back Ups Caused by Misaligned Pipes
    The most common cause of sewer back up is tree roots, but they are not the only cause. Pipe misalignment at the connection between two pieces of pipe is especially common for older sewer lines. This is due to the pipe’s long years of service and ground settling. Bedding under the pipe slowly gives way, causing the pipe connection to separate. When this happens, waste water leaks out causing the soil under the pipe to erode...making the offset worse over time. This can be a gradual process or it can happen quickly. It will ultimately cause more and more backups and finally a pipe collapse.

  • You Have Orangeburg Pipe. Now What?
    Orangeburg pipe is made of paper and tar and was only used as a less expensive substitute for cast iron during the 1940s –1970s. And yes, we do see this pipe in San Diego and San Diego County. Due to its composition, Orangeburg will become misshapen (like the profile of an egg lying on its side). Unfortunately, it's not practical to make any kind of spot repair on Orangeburg. In fact, it may not even be legal in your municipality. All Orangeburg piping is past its useful life and should be replaced.

  • Fully Collapsed Sewer Pipe
    When inserting our camera into a cleared drain, if the camera head is fully obstructed, it's pretty clear our customer has a complete collapse of the sewer line. At this point, the problem had to be fixed right away. Typically when you see this, the line has been damaged for a period of time, then finally it gives way due to roots or lack of support. Replacement of the collapsed pipe is the only option.

  • Easy DIY for Better AC & Heating Efficiency
    No need to call a heating and air conditioning repair or installation contractor for this easy task. Simply purchase a new air filter and replace the current one. Your air quality and efficiency will be improved by this simple step. Be sure to check your air filter every 30 days during summer use, and replace it when needed.

  • High Water Pressure Is like High Blood Pressure
    The most common problem we see are plumbing leaks. Think about when you go to the doctor... What is the first thing they do? They check your blood pressure because high blood pressure ruins your arteries, kidneys, vision, and heart. If you are having problems, high blood pressure is the first thing to try and rule out. High water pressure is no different. It ruins dishwasher solenoids, faucet washers, angle stops and washing machine hoses. In fact, it puts your entire plumbing system at risk. A water pressure regulator protects your system.
