Trenchless Sewer Repair Services in San Bernardino
Trenchless sewer repairs are the state of the art methods for inspecting, cleaning, and repairing or replacing a clogged, cracked, or broken sewer pipe, and at Option One, we are proud to offer these services for our customers living in the San Bernardino community.
Prior to the establishment of trenchless sewer repair, homeowners dreaded the high repair bills, decimation of their carefully tended landscapes, and ruination of driveways and walkways that was associated with traditional methods of repairs. In the past, workers often had to dig through property land just to find the pipeline. After the pipeline’s underground length was discovered, more time was needed to find the crack or clog before any repairs could be made. After a rough diagnosis was completed, the pipe had to be pulled up, hauled away, and a new pipe lowered into its place.
Trenchless sewer repair does not involve digging, massive machinery, or long expensive man-hours of work. Your landscape is not disturbed, eliminating the need to dig the old pipes out of the ground and create deep, long ditches on your property. Trenchless sewer repair takes all the mess, cost, and speculation out of the formula for mending your sewer line, offering precision and solutions with longevity. Trenchless sewer repair works to determine the cause of any sewer line concerns in a manner that leaves the original pipeline right where it is currently residing. The old pipeline resides securely underground, under your yard, under your driveway.
Discovering the cause of the pipeline disturbance is performed using a sewer camera inspection. Trenchless sewer repair works the diagnostics from inside the pipe, not outside. The sewer camera is able to robotically traverse the entire interior length of the pipeline. Video footage is fed to the monitor for our technician to see every inch of the inside circumference of the pipe. Corrosion, which creates a rough surface allowing material to snag and begin to form clogs, can be clearly seen, as well as cracks and leaks, making the inspection vital to our understanding of the situation.
If an extensive break is discovered and diagnosed, our trenchless sewer repair options are available. In order for our solutions to be successful, the pipes first need to be cleaned out with hydro jetting. This trenchless method of cleaning a pipe uses high water pressure, a thin, flexible hose and a rotating, jetting nozzle head to scour clean the pipe wall. The water pressure is high enough to blast apart even strong, invasive tree roots. Once the obstructions are completely removed and the pipeline’s diameter is restored and smooth, the repair work is completed from the inside of the pipeline.
A sleeve coated with a resin is inserted into the pipe at the location of the crack. The sleeve is inflated, pressing the resin coating firmly against the interior wall of the pipe. After a few hours of curing and hardening, the sleeve is deflated and removed. A new, smooth, durable pipe wall remains and the repair is complete. On occasion, a pipe may need to be replaced instead of repaired, and for these circumstances, we take a different approach to installing a new pipe. A new attached to a pipe bursting head is pulled into the original pipeline, with the pipe bursting head breaking apart the old pipe into fragments and pushing the broken bits into the surrounding soil. Upon completion, the new pipeline completely replaces the old one. The original pipe is gone, without trenching and hauling of older repair methods.
