For those that don’t know, trenchless sewer line repair is the only method that allows a technician to repair your sewer line without extensive damage to your yard and landscaping, so it has some huge benefits! In the recent past, it was necessary to use a backhoe that tore up your grass, dig up the area over your sewer line, find the problem, fix the problem and then replace the grass.

You may wonder why all plumbers do not offer this service and that is a simple answer.

Mr. Rooter of San Diego is proud to say that we have taken the steps necessary to be the most experienced trenchless sewer line technician in the area!

There are many reasons as to why your sewer line could become damaged. Settling soil above the lines can cause cracks, nearby tree roots can break through the lines, a misuse of what goes into the sewer lines can cause corrosion and the sewer lines may simply be old and not made from the strongest of materials. The materials we use today are much sturdier than materials of the past, just as our techniques for installation, repair, and maintenance have become far more efficient. When your sewer line has a problem, we will first use our video camera inspection equipment to locate not only how severe the problem is but also exactly where it is so that we can make a decision on how to best repair it. Once we have evaluated the severity of the problem, we will choose between the two methods of trenchless sewer line repair, which are pipe relining and pipe replacement.

With pipe relining, a flexible material is inserted into the sewer line followed by a tube that is then inflated. Once the material is dry, the tube is deflated and removed and you are left with a sewer line that is smooth and free of all cracks and breaks. This method is used when the area that is damaged is small or minor.

If pipe replacement is the chosen method, a new pipe is inserted into the old pipe, breaking it up as it goes. The broken pieces remain in the ground, so there is no need to tear up your yard to remove them. Once the pipe is completely in place, it is only necessary to connect it at both ends and your new sewer line is ready to use. This method is used when the damage is more severe or there is a large area of damage. It is also used when your sewer line is too small in width, which we commonly find in older homes with older sewer line systems.
