When there's a problem with your sewer pipe, General Plumbing and Rooter is ready to help. We provide trenchless sewer repair in Contra Costa County, CA, a no-dig approach to plumbing repairs. Read on to learn about the factors that determine if your sewer pipe is a candidate for our trenchless repair process.
The condition of the pipe is a big factor in determining whether or not you can have trenchless repairs. Severe corrosion and old age disqualifies the pipe, as more complicated repairs are required to restore its efficiency. Our trusted plumber in Contra Costa County, CA will perform a video inspection to determine the pipe's condition before providing the necessary repairs.
Pipe Size and Depth
If the pipe has a diameter of more than 12 inches or is more than six feet deep, we may not be able to do trenchless pipe replacement in Contra Costa County, CA. The equipment and materials we use for trenchless solutions are limited in how deep it can go.
When you're considering trenchless pipe lining in Contra Costa County, CA, the type of soil in your property is also important. This process works best with a medium-dense soil with an average amount of moisture. Sandy and heavy clay soils are more difficult for our equipment to handle. We may dig a hole to check the soil condition before we begin with the trenchless repair process.
A trenchless sewer replacement in Contra Costa County, CA usually requires two access points. If the necessary areas can't be accessed due to a tree, driveway or some other reason, a trenchless repair might not be an option. If your sewer line runs under your pool or patio, you might not qualify for trenchless repairs.
