Trenchless Sewer Repair North Hollywood
How many times a day do you think about your plumbing? Hopefully, not very often. Plumbing is not supposed to be something you think about often. The thing is, when plumbing works, we can forget it exists. But when there’s an issue, it’s impossible to ignore.
The majority of your piping is relegated to the interior of the home, hence the name, indoor plumbing. All of the sinks, showers, toilets, and appliances are connected and drain to the sewer. Imagine, for a second, the amount of drains that exist, think about the layout of your home, all those pipes must lead to the same spot in order to drain into the sewer.
The mental image of all your plumbing is convoluted and complicated, picturing dozens of pipes snaking behind walls and under floorboards is enough to make anybody stress. But not to worry, Rapid Plumbing is North Hollywood’s premier plumbing repair company and nobody understands pipes better than us.
Indoor and Outdoor Plumbing
Let’s get back to the indoor plumbing, all of your water must to make it to the sewer. But if your pipes are inside your home and the sewer is not, there needs to be a connecting pipe. And there is, it is referred to as the sewer lateral, named because of its lateral path from your property to the sewer. We consider the sewer line the most important part of your plumbing system because of the heavy use it receives.
Funneling water from every drain in your house, it must withstand the rigors of constant use, thousands of gallons of water on a weekly basis. Not only is there a constant stream of waste moving through but the pipe is not inside the safety of the house. The sewer lateral is instead buried, underground, where it is exposed to rain water, root growth, earth tremors, and small animals who build nests inside the pipe.
Repairing Your Sewer Line
Because of the important role the sewer line plays, repairing a broken one is of the utmost importance. Many companies would recommend a complete excavation of the pipe, rip it out and replace. This method, although effective, is complete overkill, and has no place in modern plumbing. The old procedure of digging up the pipe meant your entire yard would be turned into a construction zone, the process cost time, money, and scarred the property; thankfully, those days are in the past.
With trenchless sewer repair, we can actually replace your sewer line without having to excavate. The process uses an epoxy liner, much like a deflated balloon, pushed through the entire pipe.Our skilled technicians unfurl the membrane, affixing it to the interior walls of the old pipe, creating a brand new pipe inside the old one. Quick and easy, this method foregoes any excavation, saving you time and money. Give us a call today and get your pipes working better than new! 1-800-997-2743
