Trenchless Sewer Repairs - Plumbers Use Video Inspection to Pinpoint Problems With Sewer Line Repair

If your residence or commercial building needs sewer repairs, the plumbers in Los Angeles are ready to help. Using state-of-the-art technology and video inspections, they can pinpoint your sewer problems quickly and efficiently. In Los Angeles and the surrounding area, people do not like the destruction that comes with traditional sewer line repairs. The video inspection also reveals whether you have cracks in your sewer lines, root intrusion, or a complete collapse of your sewer line.

The video inspection is achieved by connecting a tiny camera to the end of an auger line.

Trenchless technology, available in most cases, allows the plumbers to make repairs from just two small access points, one on either end of the line. This means faster repairs and minimal disruption to your landscaping, yard, or driveway because the entire sewer line does not need to be uncovered. For many years, getting to sewer lines to replace and repair meant large scale excavation.

This was both a costly and a lengthy process, leaving you with a yard and driveway to repair once the sewer was repaired. Many times the cost to replace trees, sidewalks, driveways, and landscaping exceeded the cost of the sewer repair.
Advances in technology now allow for trenchless sewer line repair, and plumbers in Los Angeles have been leaders in the industry in this specialized area. There are two different options for trenchless sewer repair. One is pipe relining and the other is pipe bursting. Pipe bursting involves bursting the old pipe apart as a new pipe is pulled through.

The old, original pipe acts as a guide as the new pipe is pulled through. It is then ripped apart by the equipment pulling in this new pipe. You are left with a strong new pipe exactly in the same place as where the old pipe was.

Pipe relining has some similarities, but instead of splitting the old pipe apart to replace it, a fiberglass liner is places inside of the damaged pipes. The pipes are sealed, and your pipes will now last for many years to come. Relining may last as long as several decades, depending on how the work is completed and other details.

Trenchless sewer repair is the way to go to avoid costly damage to trees, sidewalks, driveways, and landscaping. If you are given the choice, and it is completely up to you, opt for a trenchless sewer line repair in order to maintain the plumbing and sewer system in your residential or commercial building.
