Trenchless Sewer Line FAQ

Before hiring a plumbing technician to take a look at your sewer lines and pipes, you may have some questions. At Gallegos Plumbing, we believe transparency is key for providing our clients the best possible plumbing services and solutions. Here are some questions our plumbing experts have been asked in regards to sewer repair and replacement.

Sewer line repair and replacement is a plumbing service required when you encounter backed up sinks, overflowing appliances, or any other plumbing issues throughout your building or house. Traditionally, sewer line repair calls for replacing old pipes that have burst by digging them up from the ground. However, the newer technologies and techniques implemented by trenchless sewer line repair don’t require digging–saving your yards, gardens, and landscaping.

Pipe-pulling, or pipe-bursting, is a type of trenchless sewer line repair and replacement that entails lowering the new pipe into the ground and pulling it through the old pipe. The installation head is responsible for breaking up the old, damaged pipe while the new pipe is pulled through.

The most modern method of trenchless sewer repair and replacement is called pipe relining, or cured-in-place pipe (CIPP). This technique only requires a single access point in which a strong epoxy is inserted to line the walls of the old pipe. After 3 to 4 hours, the epoxy will dry, or cure, providing a brand new pipe that is the exact size as the previous, damaged line. A robot is then sent through the access point to inspect the new epoxy pipe to ensure its quality, which will last 50+ years with regular plumbing maintenance.

Although trenchless sewer repair and replacement might seem like a more expensive upfront cost, it is actually cheaper than traditional methods that involve digging up your yard–saving you money in landscaping fees. At Gallegos Plumbing, we believe quality plumbing services ought to be affordable for any homeowner or property manager in Ventura County. Ask us about our financing options!

Typically, traditional pipe repair and replacement ends up costing 25 to 30 percent more than a trenchless or cured-in-place solution due to the extra labor and digging it requires. Save your time, money, and lawn with trenchless sewer repair and replacement from Gallegos Plumbing.

Traditional Sewer Line Repair and Replacement (Before Trenchless Technology)

Did you know that as pipes age, they encounter cracks and blockages that cause them to break apart, or even rupture? Also, tree roots are notorious for invading or causing damage to your underground sewer lines and pipes. In the past, it was widely common for plumbers to dig up properties to access main sewer lines in an effort to repair and/or replace each section of the pipe that required attention. This job would take multiple technicians and many hours just to dig up the old pipe, manually replace/repair the broken line, and then rebury it. Not to mention, the havoc that process wreaked on lawns and gardens, costing homeowners and property managers extra hidden costs to restore.

The Power Of Trenchless Technology

Lucky for plumbers and clients alike, trenchless technology has eliminated the need for heavy equipment, extraneous labor, and digging. As a result, homeowners and property managers can enjoy lower costs and quicker turnaround when it comes to this major plumbing job. With the use of modern micro-video cameras and robots, our experienced and trained plumbing professionals can provide thorough sewer repair and replacement with only digging one or two holes to access your pipes.

Gallegos Plumbing Trenchless Sewer Repair & Replacement Process

Are you still wondering just how simple yet effective trenchless sewer repair and replacement can be? Our Gallegos Plumbing technicians have outlined our process just for you!

  • As part of offering the best plumbing services in Ventura County, our plumbing professionals provide a thorough inspection of your main sewer lines along with a free quote–second opinions are also welcome.
  • After our plumbing professionals inspect your pipes and find damaged, problem areas, they then determine where the base of sewer line ends. More often than not, the beginning of your private sewer lateral starts where the main drain exits your home or building and ends typically in the middle of the street where it connects to the citys sewer main. Keep in mind that the biggest hole a plumbing professional would excavate for trenchless sewer repair would measure up to 4’ x 4’.
  • Then, your plumbing professional will need to break ground, which can occur in a few places such as: the middle of the road, the middle of the sidewalk, or the edge of the sidewalk and street.
  • By accessing the damaged sewer lateral from the two excavated pits, our trenchless pipe repair professionals will then be able to pull one new continuous pipe through the path of the old pipe or insert the epoxy liner from the one direct entry point.
  • In most cases, your plumbing technician will push a new plastic/epoxy line underground and have it hooked to the city’s main pipeline.
  • Afterward, our plumbing technician and/or team will reconnect lines affected during the process, fill in the 2 holes, and restore your floor.
  • Last but not least, our plumbing professionals will inspect the new line for quality assurance–because Gallegos Plumbing believes in a job done right the first time!
