Pipe Bursting Services in La Mesa, CA
Option One Plumbing and Rooter can replace damaged and deteriorated sewer lines in La Mesa, CA quickly and affordably with our state-of-the-art trenchless pipe bursting technology. This remarkable process removes and installs pipes below ground without major excavation to protect your property and keep disruption to a minimum, even during a major sewer project.
Our pipe bursting process begins with a full inspection of the problem pipe to locate all areas of damage and determine how extensive the problem has become. We’ll use our in-pipe, sewer camera inspection technology for live video analysis to ensure that we completely understand the problem and have developed the right plan of action for satisfactory results. Option One takes time to ensure that your pipe replacement is efficient and accurate, so you can get back to life-as-normal quickly.
Once we’ve evaluated the problem, we’ll open two small access holes at the ends of the damaged pipe to allow space for the pipe bursting tool to be inserted. A replacement pipe as long as 300 to 400 feet will also enter through these holes, preserving hundreds of feet of landscaping, trees, and concrete. With the pipe ends exposed, we’ll insert the pneumatic pipe-bursting cylinder into one end and attach the new pipe, usually high-density polyethylene (HDPE) for longer-lasting results. The pneumatic cylinder will be slowly winched through the pipe and as it moves, its hydraulic bursting action will crumble the old pipe and press the pieces of pipe into the surrounding soil. Most older sewer lines in southern California are made with conveniently available vitrified clay or cast iron, which dissolves harmlessly into the ground and enhances it mineral content for an added benefit.
As the old pipe is removed, the new pipe is simultaneously laid in its place for an efficiency installation. Once it’s positioned, we remove the bursting head and cut any needed connection openings with our remote rotary cutting tool. Finally, the pipe is reconnected, and video inspected again to make sure we’re satisfied with the result. Option One values our customers, and we won’t finish the job until we’re convinced that your sewer problems are fully solved and you’re happy with the project.
