Sewer lines break. It can happen because of shifting soil bases, ground settling, corrosion, tree roots or bellied pipes. No matter what the cause is, our Milpitas plumbing team can do a complete sewer repair. We start every sewer service with a visual inspect with an in line a fiberglass snake camera to determine exactly where and what the problem is.
Once we have determined the specific issue, our Milpitas plumbers will suggest the most appropriate solution. If you have a simple clog (which is what you are rooting for) with no damaged pipes, a power auger cleaning is in order. If you have a break in the line there are three more options – spot repair, restoration or trenchless sewer replacement.
A spot repair for a broken sewer line repairs a single break usually caused by an invasive tree root or digging misadventure. We pinpoint the damage with our leak detection equipment and repair the broken area, only digging one hole in your yard. The damaged section is completely removed and replaced. Copper couplings secure the new pipe in place to prevent invasive root issues in the future.
Our Milpitas plumbing epoxy system was designed specifically to restore and reline existing pipes. The epoxy process seals the entire drain line and increases the efficiency of your drains. It also prevents root intrusion and future pipe failure for decades. Most residential lines can be restored because restoration and relining can be done on pipes ranging from 2" to 8" in diameter.
Our Milpitas trenchless sewer replacement option allows you to replace outdated or damage sewer lines without digging up your entire yard. Our Milpitas plumbers use a pipe bursting machine to break the old pipe into pieces while installing a new one.
Only two holes need to be made in this process – one at the connection to the city sewer system and one at the exit point from the building. This means no digging up parking lots or lawns. The trenchless sewer replacement is also much faster than a traditional sewer install and can often be finished in a single day.
