National City Sewer Inspection and Repair
Slow shower drains don’t seem like a big issue until video inspection by a plumber indicates broken and/or root infested sewer lines. Typically, clients will ask, “well isn’t this the city’s issue?” City responsibility doesn’t come into play until the sewer main, which lies under the street near the home. All of a home’s plumbing drains to its “lateral line,” the branch that leads to the sewer main. This branch that comes only to your National City home is your responsibility. Worse, many home warranties do not cover sewer line issues.
The good news is that sewer inspection and repair doesn’t have to cost thousands of dollars. Ten years ago, a San Diego sewer line break down required digging a trench yards long.
Today, video inspection and razor enabled snakes pinpoint and cut through the problem areas. Precision trenchless pipe relining then slides a seamless epoxy coating over deteriorated or cracked areas. By creating a pipe within an existing pipe, we sidestep having to cut through walls, floors and landscaping, all of which used to be very expensive. We’ve used this technology with great success since 1998 to make lateral sewer lines better than new.
Team Perry Keeps National City Sewer Repair and Replacement Simple
Sewer issues tend to spark fear in our local homeowners. Often, they’ve seen parents wringing their hands lateral sewer line issues in the era before trenchless pipe relining. The days of jackhammering floors and outdoor hardscape are gone. Trust that Team Perry has seen every sewer issue National City can dish out, quickly and affordably. First, the four-year drought has caused soil subsidence (read more here), basically the compacting and hardening our soil. This compaction puts pressure on sewer lines. Believe it or not, in the Central Valley, the soil level has dropped by 13 inches. San Diego geologists are keeping track of local soil levels as well. Beyond the threat of added pressure, the cast iron and clay lateral sewer lines common in the National City area need some water to function most efficiently. When they don’t get it, they can crack and crumble.
Sewer line gaps then invite roots from nearby trees. With a ready source of water, roots proliferate quickly in the pipes, causing blockages. The San Diego Water Authority reports that roots cause 50% of all sewer line blockages.
Dry soil and aggressive roots are not the only threats to National City sewer lines, however. Our hard water puts us in the top 10 American cities for the worst water quality. The calcium and magnesium our water carries during its 200 mile trek from Colorado River to our taps can build up in our sewer lines, causing slow drains and even complete blockage. No worries, however, Team Perry’s razor enabled cables can cut right through these mineral deposits. We blast the debris out with high pressure water jets . . . all very low tech and environmentally friendly solutions to an annoying problem.
